How to Pack Your Kitchen like a Professional

The kitchen is undoubtedly the hardest of all the rooms to pack while moving. Aside from the fact that there is a lot of stuff to pack, many of the objects are unusually shaped or delicate, and there is an overwhelming amount of odds and ends that can throw even the most organized packer off. Starting to pack your kitchen without a plan is one of the most common moving mistakes, but with a little planning and imagination, you can streamline the kitchen packing process and tackle it like an expert. This is how to pack a kitchen successfully.


Get Organized

Before you begin packing, walk through your kitchen and sort out anything you no longer want or need. Moving is the ideal opportunity to pare down your stuff and lighten your load, so take a moment to sort through them and get rid of anything that doesn’t serve a purpose for you. This can be especially challenging in the kitchen because there’s always that voice telling you that even though you’ve never used that dutch oven before, you should use it sometime. But if you’ve owned it for over a year and haven’t even taken it out of the box, odds are you won’t.


Gather Supplies

You’ll need heavy-duty boxes in a range of sizes, as well as packing paper, packing tape, and labeling markers, to pack a kitchen. You may also want to invest in specialized dividers made for packing and stacking difficult objects such as stemware. Pick up some plastic wrap which is useful for keeping stacked items together and preventing them from shifting around.


Set Aside Your Essentials

Set aside the important kitchen goods you’ll want to have on hand before and during your move. Each member of your family will require a plate, cup, and set of cutlery. Make sure to leave a dish towel, dish soap, a sponge and any equipment you’ll need accessible while packing, like your coffee machine. On the day of your move, these can all be packed separately in a kitchen basics box.
