Get Cooking Right Away In Your New Home: 4 Tips For Packing A Kitchen


Your kitchen is often one of the hardest places to unpack after a long move due to how many items you use while cooking and dining. With all of the delicate items, it's a good idea to look into how you can enjoy your kitchen as soon as possible by carefully packing.

Whether you decide to rely on the help of professionals packers available through a moving service or you do all the packing on your own, make the move easy with the following packing tips.

Make Preparations for Packing Food

Many households with a stocked kitchen decide to bring along a lot of food when moving. Not only does this ensure that you won't be throwing away food still suitable for consumption, it also ensures that you have things to eat as soon as you arrive to your new home. A good guideline to follow when packing food is sticking with canned and boxed foods that don't need refrigeration or freezing.

Consider Replacing Older Kitchenware

An older microwave, pots and pans, or dining ware can all become worn down after years of use. If some of these appliances don't work as well as they once did or you've noticed chips or stains on dining ware, it may be a good time to toss or donate them and start fresh once you've arrived at your new home.

Pack Small Appliances and Tools Together

From a small garlic press to a blender, there are likely a ton of useful items in your kitchen that have many moving parts. In order to keep all these parts together, you'll want to start with a deep clean then follow up with packing each appliance or tool together. Placing small items in a plastic bag and making sure to label everything can help you find what you need once you've moved in.

Request Help for Heavy Appliances

Bulky kitchen appliances such as a refrigerator, dishwasher, or stove can be very difficult to move on your own, making it important to rely on the help of professionals for this task. If you're set on bringing some of these appliances along to your new home, you'll need to factor in the costs of moving them due to their typical heavy weight and large size.

By making preparations for moving your kitchen, you can happily move into your new place with the peace of mind that all your appliances, dining ware, and cookware are together.
