So you have now at last embarked on a long over-due kitchen remodel. The prospect of having an altogether new and better kitchen at the end of it all is really exciting. But the actual remodel period is going to be pretty much stressful. This is a room in any house that cannot be done without. If it was remodeling your living room or bedroom, there are other places in the house that could be used a make shift living rooms or bedrooms. But the kitchen? Very difficult to create a make-shift kitchen right? Well we’ll see what can be done about that!

Now if you are going in for a full scale remodel, well then be prepared for at least a month’s non- functional regular kitchen. If it is going to be on a smaller scale well then it could take at least two weeks. It is not wise or possible to have all your meals outside during these periods. It would not only add to your cost. This is where you have to improvise. You can get TV dinners – those pre-packaged meals occasionally, go out occasionally, and cook occasionally. You can and have to create a make-shift kitchen with the microwave, fridge and a hotplate perhaps. The truth is this is going to be a testing time and more often than not the project is likely to take longer than you had anticipated.

Another thing you should be prepared for is the dust and the noise. There is not going to be getting away from it. You can at best cover the rest of your rooms with large dust sheets. Also remember not everything goes as planned. There may a few fixtures that you had planned out of stock or may not fit right in your kitchen. You have to be prepared for this and have to think of alternative methods to replace this. What is important here is NOT to lose your cool at any stage.
