There are several changes that come with a kitchen remodel, from the workers in your home to the construction itself. The biggest change is not being able to use your kitchen for several weeks. You may be wondering how you are going to get by without space you use every day. The following tips can help you stick to your routine during your kitchen remodel.
Create A Makeshift Kitchen
One idea is to turn an empty corner or another room into a makeshift kitchen. A long table is going to be used for small appliances such as a microwave, crock pot and coffee maker. Use a shelving unit or small drawers for your snacks, can opener and disposable dinnerware. You are going to need a mini refrigerator and freezer for your perishable food. Use a utility sink or bathroom sink as a source of water for this space.
Adopt A New Menu
You do not want to live on takeout and fast food for several weeks, so you are going to need to adopt a new menu for your makeshift kitchen. It is best to adopt meals that are not difficult to cook, such as canned soup, microwave dinners and frozen prepared foods. You can also look into sandwiches, salads and fresh produce. Treat yourself by ordering takeout or visiting a restaurant once a week.
Make Other Arrangements
If possible, you may need to make other arrangements during your kitchen remodeling in Chicago IL. You may be able to stay with a relative or friend during the project, or you can look into a pet-friendly hotel that is fit for your family. What may seem like a big change can make life easier for a family of children and pets during the project.
