By Eoin D on 01/31/2022

Your kitchen is the cornerstone of your home. You make fantastic meals, share moments with family and put those culinary skills to the test.

It is important that when you pack your kitchen, you take all the essentials that you need for a fantastic meal.

Our kitchen packing guide will ensure that your first night in your new home is one without hunger.

Kitchen packing the right way will ensure you have what you need your first night and that you can unpack quickly and easily in your new home.

Also, kitchen packing is also a great opportunity to downsize or improve upon your belongings.

Our kitchen packing guide will help you plan the best way to get your belongings in order and make your move much easier. So let's get started.

Liffey Moving Kitchen Packing Guide:

Declutter your kitchen

As with all of our room-by-room packing guides, the first thing that you should do is declutter your kitchen.

Kitchen packing is much easier when you lighten the load.

Empty all of your cabinets and drawers and group together the items you use and the ones that you do not.

Some may not be of use to you anymore, but you could donate kitchen items - old blenders or toasters, for example - to charities or shelters.

Gather perishable goods and properly discard them.

Following this, get together all your long-lasting items so you can pack them away for the big move.

Pack your kitchen items:

Now that you have all the items you want for your new kitchen, it’s time to pack.

Gather the right packing equipment, much of which can be supplied by Liffey Moving, and get packing.

Place similar items together such as pots and pans and stack them within one another to save space,

For cups and mugs, as well as other fragile goods, make sure to pack these properly.

Individually wrap each item and place them safely within boxes. Use filters to minimise the space in between each piece.

Ensure you label each box with its appropriate contents, so your moving team know what is in each and where to place it in your new kitchen.

Make sure to label fragile goods so we can take extra care when moving.

Kitchen Packing: Setting aside essential items:

Moving can be stressful, along with this you do not want to add hunger to the mix.

Be sure to set aside some essential items that will allow you to cook or prepare meals during moving day.

You can keep these aside yourself or let the Liffey moving team know its importance.

This can include utensils for cooking including small pots and pans along with knives and forks so you can enjoy your meal in your home.

Packing food:

As we have stated already, now is a great time to get rid of unwanted or unused food. For the food you do decide to bring, it's important to have some extra consideration.

Label the perishable and unperishable goods and ensure that freezer and fridge food is placed in the appropriate packaging.

This will avoid any leaks or spills during the moving process.

You're all set!
