Packing Kitchen Items For A Move
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.
Packing rarely used items first
Pack the items you don’t use frequently. Kitchen gadgets, specialty appliances, decorations, artwork, fancy holiday dishes, special utensils such as ladles and tongs, cookbooks, vases, and extra oven mitts and dish towels are examples of such items. Extra cookie sheets, mixing bowls, wine glasses, and food storage containers should also be included. Cookbooks should be packed flat to avoid damage to the spines.
Packing Kitchen Drawer Items
Packing drawers can be difficult due to the sheer volume of small items crammed inside. Begin with the messiest drawer and begin tossing what you don’t need.
Packing Glasses and other Stemware
Packing glasses and other stemware will necessitate the use of cell boxes, which are those divider boxes we’ve been discussing. Place a piece of packing paper between each plate and bowl. Wrap and nestle cups and mugs with care. Then, add a box or two of your pots and pans. Just keep an all-purpose pan or pot in your essentials box in case you want to cook dinner the nights before moving day. You never know when the kids will have a food craving.
Clean out the Pantry
Determine what is worth moving and what is not. For transport, open dry food containers should be taped and properly secured. Anything perishable, such as open pickle jars, lunch meat, and eggs from the fridge, should be consumed or discarded before moving day. Many movers will refuse to transport perishables.
Getting Kitchen Appliances Ready for the Move
A day before the move, disconnect and clean all kitchen appliances such as the microwave, oven, and refrigerator. If you have the original boxes for the appliances, that’s great; otherwise, measure them and get packing boxes and other packing material to protect your kitchen appliances during the move.
