You can also discuss with the team any other needs and how you will work together as they make your kitchen dreams come to life!

Food and Meals

During a kitchen renovation you might be in between appliances. This will affect the food in your refrigerator and freezer, how you’re able to cook and what meals you will be able to prepare.

Depending how long the renovation takes, it may be easier to keep non-perishable foods on hand and create meal plan lists that are feasible for you and all others living in the home using minimal appliances. Crockpot recipes and microwaveable items are great in a stitch. These kitchen appliances are a great way to cook a great meal without using too much of your kitchen.
