A kitchen renovation project is going to disrupt the lives of you and your family. There’s no getting around that. For a period of days or even weeks, you won’t have access to your kitchen. And most people don’t realize how much they use their kitchen until they can’t.
At Mr. Kitchen, we have been providing homeowners with new kitchens for more than a decade. And while the final reveal is exciting and fun, the time leading up to it can be challenging. So over the years, we have come up with some tips for minimizing the inconvenience to you and your family during your kitchen renovation project.
- Make a Mini Kitchen — The appliances people use most in their kitchen are the refrigerator and the stove. Consider moving your current refrigerator to another room, such as a sunroom or attached garage, so you have uninterrupted access to your favorite foods. It’s not always practical to move your stove, but temporarily replacing it with a microwave oven is often a good alternative.
- Eat Out a Lot — When your kitchen is out of service, use this time as an opportunity to check out all those fun little restaurants in your area that you’ve always wanted to try. Transform the inconvenience of your kitchen renovation into fun an exciting family time. You might just discover some new favorites.
- Go on Vacation — Another option is to simply vacate the premises altogether. Scheduling a vacation during your kitchen renovation project allows you to skip the hassle of living without a kitchen. While we are working, you can enjoy fun in the sun with your family at your favorite exotic location. Plus, you get to come home to a newly upgraded home.
At Mr. Kitchen, we strive to complete kitchen renovations as quickly as possible. But we’re not magicians. It’s going to take some time. Hopefully, some of these tips can help you make the most of that kitchen downtime.
