Prepare for a Kitchen Remodel with These Tips

1. Plan to eat out part of the time

Crunch the numbers first and try to stick to a dining-out budget. This is one of the easiest solutions to being without a kitchen, as you don’t have to worry about meal prep or clean up.

2. Set up a makeshift kitchen, if you can

Putting a microwave in another room can be quite handy when you’re without a kitchen. So can plugging in a two-burner hot plate and a mini-fridge in a convenient spot.

3. Use your small appliances

Plan to make as many meals as you can with a slow cooker, toaster oven, electric griddle or portable grill. Stow them in a temporary place that will be easy to access when you need them.

4. Fire up the outdoor grill as often as possible

You can make virtually anything on a grill, and clean-up can be a breeze if you use foil packets to prepare your food.

5. Find a temporary place to wash dishes

A utility sink is ideal, but some homeowners have converted a sink in a guest bathroom, or even a bathtub, into a temporary dishwashing station.
