You want things to go as smoothly as possible when you have the kitchen remodeled. Once you have talked with a kitchen contractor and a designer, there is still work for you to do to ensure your remodeling process runs well. The following preparation guidelines help everyone involved in the project.
Packing Dishes: Pack your dishes in boxes. Put the items you will use the least in first. A spare room is the best place to put the boxes. Get started on packing the items that you won’t need in your kitchen a week or so before the project begins.
Protect the Kitchen Floor: Whether the floors are tile or hardwood, use carpet scraps to lay over the floor and tape them down with duct tape. You may want to consider getting a carpet pad to go underneath. These steps are to protect the floor from workers who are using heavy objects that might damage a finished floor.
Contractor Parking: Everyone involved has to park somewhere near or on your property. Move cars that are in their way. You are making it easier for the contractors as soon as they arrive.
Move Valuables: Remember to remove items from the refrigerator and any other pictures, plants, or other objects on the kitchen window or window ledge.
Overall Kitchen Prep: Move everything of value or anything that can be damaged to a safe place. Make it as convenient as possible for your contractors to have an easy place to work in.
