You will also need to consider the arrival times of products for your kitchen. It’s best to wait for all of your kitchen materials to arrive before starting the kitchen demolition.

2. Prepare for life without a kitchen
Is your history ready? Don’t start swinging the hammer just yet.
Once you have all your products and have confirmed that everything is in good condition, we recommend that you establish your temporary kitchen. This will be your hub for preparing meals and storing kitchen supplies until the renovation is complete. It is important that you have this space ready before the demo because once you start, you cannot go back.
There are many items that will help your temporary kitchen succeed. For home cooking, consider a microwave or stove. Or, if the weather is nice during the renovation, consider grilling outdoors. A small refrigerator is another smart choice for easy storage or perishable items and leftovers. Alternatively, you can budget for dining out more often during the renovation. Other good items include paper plates, cups, and cutlery to cut down on cleaning time.
