Keeping Your Sanity During a Kitchen Remodel
If you’re staying home during the renovation, set realistic expectations. For a few weeks, your home will be noisy, dusty, and bothersome. Keep your eyes on the prize. When the renovation is finished, you’ll have a gorgeous, functional new kitchen.
Freeze some of your family’s favorites ahead to pop into the slow cooker for an easy meal. Your grill is an excellent alternative to the stove for some healthy meals. The key to meal prep is to plan ahead for these few weeks of inconvenience.
Arrange Adjacent Rooms
Renovations also cause a lot of dust. This is another reason to box up small decorations. Cover upholstery and shelves with thin plastic or sheets to protect surfaces. This will make your cleanup much faster and easier when the contractor is finished.
Plan for Kids and Pets
If you stay at home, remember construction doesn’t stop for naptime, so you’ll need to find a quiet place to accommodate your children’s need for rest. You may find it best to stay with friends or family during the day.
Keep a positive attitude. This is a temporary state of affairs, and soon you’ll be enjoying a wonderful new kitchen in your home.
