If you’re planning a move, then packing up your kitchen can be one of the biggest challenges you face. This is because a lot of the items found in the kitchen are not only delicate and can be easily broken if packed improperly, but are of all different shapes and sizes, which presents a challenge in itself. The following are a few tips to help you pack up your kitchen:
- Use strong boxes – Whether you buy boxes or reuse older boxes, make sure that they are sturdy and won’t fall apart. Reinforce the bottom with several layers of tape.
- Pack a necessity box – Start with a box that you fill with kitchen necessities that you know you’ll need the first week in your new home. This way you don’t have to search through all your boxes to find what you need.
- Protect your plates – Add a layer of packing paper or bubblewrap to the bottom of the box before putting your plates inside. Then, wrap each plate individually in packing paper or bubblewrap before packing it in the box. Add another layer of wadded up paper or bubblewrap over the top and along the sides. You should pack everything tightly enough so that they don’t shift when you move the box. You can also use towels or linens instead of packing paper or bubble wrap.
- Pack pots and pans in stacks – Stack your pots and pans in groups of threes with smaller pots and pans inside the larger ones. You should wrap and pack any lids separately. You can pack things like cleaning cloths, sponges, towels and other such items in the empty spaces around the pots and pans.
