It is an exciting time, but we understand it can be stressful because the kitchen is the only room of its kind in your home. You are voluntarily making the choice for it to be temporarily out of commission. The light at the end of the tunnel is knowing you are only a short while away from having the kitchen of your dreams!

We are here to make this process as seamless as possible for you!

Check out these following tips:

1. Pull out all appliances

  • Toaster oven
  • Two-burner cook top
  • Coffee maker
  • Electric tea kettle
  • Crockpot
  • Microwave

It’s fairly easy to think of creative ways to stick to your healthy diet, without the use of an oven. One pan dishes are an easy way to sauté chicken, vegetables, rice, or any dish that fills you up while feeding you the good nutrients!

If your renovation takes place in the 4 warm months New England has then you’re in luck and can rely on your outdoor grill for most meals! Who doesn’t love easy clean up and spending time outdoors?!

2. Buy paper plates, utensils, cups, etc.-Buy paper plates, utensils, cups, etc. You will not have the best place for clean-up so make it easier on yourself by using these recyclable items.

3. Set up a work station table separate from your dining table. This will help keep your routine as close to the norm as possible for you and your family.

4. Expect dust! Our installers are extremely talented with their work. They are professional craftsman, but if they have to cut down molding or scribe the side of your cabinet- dust will be made. It is inevitable. By deciding on a new kitchen, you are giving consent to your home being a temporary construction zone. Before the construction process is started the designer will designate a “cutting zone” that is agreed upon by the homeowner for the installer to follow.

5. Communicate, Talk, Vocalize your needs! However you want to say it- this is one of the most important things. Communicate with both your designer and installers or contractors! It will make the process run smoother for all involved.

6. Review your contract and pay attention to emails from B&G. This will let you know not only when your balance is due, but also what week your cabinetry is scheduled for delivery! How exciting?!

7. Relax and focus on the outcome that will be in reach in just a few short week,  the kitchen of your dreams …  the place to create not only delicious meals, but memories to last a lifetime!
