Hey Nashville, are you getting ready to remodel your kitchen? If so, that’s great! A remodeled kitchen can make your home feel like new in many ways, and it will also likely add value to your house when the time comes to sell. However, there is some bad news that comes along with a Nashville kitchen remodel, and that is the fact that you aren’t going to have a kitchen for a prolonged period of time. Very few kitchen remodels happen quickly, as there are almost always a few unexpected delays along the way. So, if you are going to get from start to finish with your sanity in place, you will need to have a plan for how you are going to live through the remodel.
To help you toward that end, we have collected the following three tips. Put these three tips into action during your remodel and you should be able to look forward to an enjoyable and exciting project.
Tip #1 – A Basic, Temporary Kitchen
Sure, it might seem easy enough to just order out for dinner throughout your renovation – but that is going to get old, and expensive, in a hurry. You are sure to grow tired of paying to eat food that someone else has prepared, so you will want to set up a temporary kitchen somewhere around your home. Of course, you won’t be able to use all of your appliances, but you should be able to plug in your fridge, a toaster, and maybe a small microwave. Even having the ability to prepare some basics will take the pressure off of having to dine out each night.
Tip #2 – Take the Chance to Downsize
There is a good chance that you own far more kitchen appliances and accessories than you actually need. If that is the case, take this opportunity to downsize by giving away or throwing away those things you don’t need. As a good rule of thumb, think about the last time you used each item that you take out of your cabinets. If you haven’t used it in a year or more, there is very little chance you are going to use it moving forward. By downsizing, you will have less stuff to store around your home, and that means less clutter during the renovation.
Tip #3 – Get Out of the House
If possible, spend a little bit of extra time out of the house in order to take your mind off the renovation. Having a room remodeled is an expensive proposition, so you will probably be a bit stressed about the whole situation. To avoid driving yourself up a wall, and to avoid straining your family relationships, spend some time away from home while thinking about anything but a new kitchen.
