When it comes to moving, one of the more difficult rooms to efficiently pack up is the kitchen. Kitchens tend to have a lot of different tools and appliances that may not fit well into boxes and other storage containers. Additionally, kitchens have a lot of items that should not be packed and stored together, like food and kitchen appliances. In this post, we will cover how to pack up some of the essentials of the kitchen, such as appliances, dishes, pots/pans, and food items. Read on for some tips from Baymeadows movers in Jacksonville, FL on how to pack up your kitchen.
Odds are your appliances will be the most awkward things to pack. If you still have the original packaging from your appliances use those; if not, you need some larger packing boxes and a bunch of bubble wrap. Start by removing all accessories and pieces like glass bowls and mixing utensils. Wrap the fragile pieces in bubble wrap and use newspaper to wrap the metal and plastic pieces. Place the heavier appliance base on the bottom of the box and stack the more fragile pieces on top.
Dishes & Silverware
Dishes are probably the most fragile thing you will move from your kitchen, Luckily, dishes and bowls easily stack on top of each other, so packing is easy as long as you make sure to give them sufficient cushioning. Start with the biggest dishes on the bottom and add a layer of newspaper r bubble wrap between every 3 plates or glasses. For silverware, separate utensils by type and wrap each type in rubber bands and store in a shoebox.
Pots & Pans
Pots and pans are easy to pack but heavy to move. Start with the biggest pot on the bottom of the box and stack up from biggest to smallest.
Packing up your kitchen is a good way to clear out your pantry Go through your food cabinets and fridge to get rid of any expired or unwanted items.
