Packing Up Your Kitchen

The kitchen is a place in your home that will have the most odd and varied items. Making sure you can pack everything correctly is essential and will ultimately make your move into your new home much easier. Knowing what boxes to use for what things, and what items you put together, and how to put them together will make for a smooth move in.

With smaller appliances you don’t have to pack them into a box if you have the original box. But if you don’t that’s fine too. First you should clean and dry them out, if they are not already. Making sure to put those together in a heavy-duty box will ensure that they won’t fall out when they go to get picked up. Wrapping them in bubble wrap or packing paper is something that should also be done. For much bigger appliances, like a refrigerator, it is important for you to know how to properly remove, or you will risk your appliance not working anymore.

When packing your dinnerware, you should have to your side, a wrap of packing paper, you could even use newspaper. You must stack your bowls and plates in the box, separating them one by one with the packing paper. It’s important for extremely fragile items to be wrapped individually. This will result in no scratches, and no broken pieces.

Your pots and pans should be packed in a nice big heavy-duty box so everything can easily fit. Your lids should also be wrapped in packing paper, just in case. Tying your silverware in rubber bands or strings will keep them together instead of having them move around the entire box. Miscellaneous items that are in your kitchen should also be wrapped and packed in a medium sized box.

Before packing everything up you should go through your items and set aside everything you want and don’t want. Whatever you won’t be keeping you should give away, unless it absolutely needs to be thrown out. Make your move nice and easy packing your items the right way.
