How to Prepare for Your Denver Kitchen Remodeling

June 20, 2018

It’s exciting when the kitchen remodeling project you have been planning for in your Denver kitchen finally starts to take shape. It might seem a bit overwhelming at first, to think about functioning in your home without a full kitchen. But there are some steps to take that can help the kitchen remodeling process go smoothly. It just takes a bit of planning ahead of time.

Gather Supplies

Stock up on packing materials, including boxes, packing materials, tape, plastic Ziploc bags, and markers.

Put Aside the Essentials

Take the items you use every day and pull them aside so you don’t pack them. Think about what you use on a daily basis, including the coffee maker, pots and pans, mixing bowls, vegetable peelers and cooking utensils, and can openers. Also set aside plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and containers for leftovers.
It’s also not a bad idea to stock up on disposable plates, cups, and dinnerware—just to make cleanup easy during the remodel.
From the pantry, pull out the food you think you’ll use. Keep in mind that you want easy prep items such as breakfast food, canned foods, sauces, pasta, spices, baking supplies, drinks, pet food, and cooking oils. Keep them in open boxes so they are easily accessible during the construction period.

Store Infrequently Used Items

Think about the things you use only occasionally and pack them up. Holiday items, specialized bakeware, platters, and the like can be put down in the basement or garage during the remodeling project. Keep like items together and label all boxes so they are easy to put away.

Purge Things You No Longer Use

This is a great opportunity to get rid of the things you no longer use. Put only necessary items into your newly remodeled kitchen, this includes dishes, utensils, cookbooks, and the like.
Remove Window Coverings and Decorative Items
Take down wall decorations and other items, blinds, curtains, and rods. Store them carefully so you can put them back up once the project is over. Now is a good time to clean and dust everything so they are clean for your updated kitchen.
If there are valuable wall hangings on the walls of adjacent rooms, you might want to store those so they don’t knocked down during the remodeling process

Protect Electronics

If you have electronic equipment, be sure to cover everything or remove it completely. Dust from the construction area could damage them.
