|HOW TO PREPARE
FOR A KITCHEN REMODEL
> Protect what you can’t remove; floors should be covered, dust curtains hung and a pathway
defined for workmen to enter and exit the workspace. Use plastic sheeting and tape to seal
off doorways into other rooms and cover bookshelves, furniture, and electronic equipment.
> Turn off the central air or heat when the workers are sanding. Keep extra air filters on
> Broom clean the construction area at the end of every day to minimize the mess.
> If necessary, prepare a storage area in the garage or in another room near the kitchen for
holding appliances, cabinets, and other items until it’s time to install them. Or rent a storage
space for a month or two during the construction phase.
