Going through a kitchen remodel is stressful, especially when you have to figure out how to feed your family. Sure, you could order something for delivery or take out; however, the costs add up doing that every night. Depending on, your situation you can still make tasty, affordable meals during your kitchen remodel.
Even though you may not have a stove, you can still prepare hot, fresh food for your family. So, here are three ways you can cook during a kitchen remodel.
Setup A Temporary Kitchen
Make sure to plan and pick a specific spot in your home for a temporary kitchen. You’ll want to figure out where to wash and dry your dishes, and you can even choose to do so in your bathroom. Additionally, you can even use a table such as a coffee table for prep work.
If you’re looking for extra storage space for groceries, you may want to consider buying a mini-fridge. There are plenty of budget-friendly mini-fridges you can purchase, significantly if you can’t move the refrigerator you have. When picking a spot for your temporary kitchen, ideally, you want to have a place where you can use any appliances you may need. So, make sure you pick a location that has plenty of electrical outlets.
Gather Your Most Frequently Used Tools
Ideally, you’ll want to think about the items in your kitchen that you use most frequently and set them aside. This may include utensils, a set of plates or bowls, etc. Once you figure out the essentials you need, you’ll want to pick a place to keep them organized, perhaps in a plastic bin by your temporary kitchen. However, if you’re limited to sink space, consider buying plastic plates or silverware for the time being.
Before your kitchen remodel, you can stock the freezer with foods you’ve prepared in advance. Stocking your freezer with meals you’ve prepared in advance can help save you money and time. So, the only thing you’d have to do is heating it in the microwave, which you can set up in your temporary kitchen.
