Kitchen Renovations Part 2: During And After

  So, the date is set and your renovation is starting soon! There are two key things to keep in mind to prepare your house for the disruption: Where will you put kitchen items during the renovation? What will you eat and cook on during the renovation?

Kitchen Renovations Part 1: Getting Started

Are you thinking about renovating your kitchen? I just went through that process and learned a lot. When my husband and I bought our first house in July 2016, we discovered that the kitchen was outdated, and the cabinets were grungy and smelled weird. We painted them white, hoping to freshen up the look. This is a great budget-friendly option if your cabinets are in decent shape and just need a facelift. While that did brighten up the space, the interiors still needed updating. Also, the blue counters and fruit tiles were not our style. So, after saving and planning for a year and a half, we took the renovation plunge. Here are some helpful tips that I gleaned from that experience.

Multi-Purpose Storage Pieces

  At The Little Details, we love using multi-purpose pieces of furniture. For example, a storage ottoman is great for holding blankets, books, toys, and countless other things.

Here are a few tried-and-true products we love!
