Kitchens are the most difficult rooms to pack in the house. This is due to a couple of major factors. One, you’ll need a lot of the items in your kitchen until the week before you move. After all, you must still cook and eat. Second, there are many different items in the kitchen that require different packing methods. You have small and large appliances, which are balanced out by small kitchen gadgets and junk drawers that must be emptied. Then there’s the pantry and all of the food to think about.
It’s no surprise that everyone dreads packing the kitchen. Check out this handy packing guide for assistance in ensuring that the entire room is packed and ready to go when the movers arrive.
You must first sort through all of the items. Let’s be honest: there’s a lot you can get rid of in this room. Small appliances or gadgets may be duplicated. Remove anything that is no longer useful to you. That means you can get rid of that dull set of knives you bought a decade ago. Consider what you want to bring with you and what can be sold, donated, or simply thrown out as you go through the kitchen. If you have extra appliances or unopened dry food items, you could donate them to Dallas-area shelters and food banks.
Pack an essentials box next. This will contain the items you will require immediately upon moving into your new home. You can put soap, dishtowels, wipes, a coffee maker, a toaster, plastic ware, paper plates, and other items in this box. You won’t have to tear apart all the boxes the next morning to get your coffee fix.
It is now time to gather all of the packing supplies and materials you will require. A typical kitchen will require 10 medium boxes, five large boxes, and five heavy-duty boxes. If you have fragile items in your kitchen, purchase boxes with dividers. Packing paper, tape, bubble wrap, markers, and labels are also required.
