Preparing Your Home for Refinishing of Kitchen Counters

Refinishing your kitchen counters and cabinets is a great way to freshen up the look of your home, but depending on the size of the project, the contractors might be there for more than just a day. For this reason, it’s important not only to carefully plan the project, but to know what it takes to get along with the crew, because both elements will have a direct effect on the outcome.

Refinishing kitchen counters and cabinets isn’t as big of an undertaking as a full remodel, so there’s no need to rent a hotel room or stock up on takeout menus for a week. That said, however, your life may be disrupted somewhat during the process, so following the steps below will help make the job quicker for the contractors and easier for you.

  • Lay down old pieces of carpet or drop cloths along the path, so any mess can be easily disposed of.
  • Create a space for them to park their trucks close to your home, so they have an easy pathway to the kitchen.
  • Remove any valuable/breakable items from the worksite.

Finally, have old washcloths or rags and towels available for them. By providing these things, they will be able to clean up more easily, and the job of refinishing your kitchen counters and cabinets will go faster.
