Getting ready for relocation is a complex process. And many people have a hard time packing fragile or oddly shaped items. But, there are many guides that will help you pack your kitchen like a pro. And in this one, we will be talking about how to pack your kitchen cabinets. They contain a lot of fragile items. And you need to be very careful. But, with some instructions, you’ll be able to safely pack everything in no time. 

Gather supplies before you start to pack your kitchen cabinets

Before you even start to pack your kitchen cabinets, you need to make sure that you have enough packing materials. That way, you’ll be able to take out your kitchenware, remove the dust and proceed straight to packing. So, just like with any other Brooklyn moving, you need to visit your local hardware store. Or contact your moving company for packing supplies. You’ll need boxes that can fit your kitchenware. And plenty of air-filled plastic wrap. So you can safely pack everything. You’ll also need packing tape and markers to label your boxes.

Gather all the supplies needed before you start

Pro tip: If you run out of wrapping paper you can also use your t-shirts or your linens. They will give them ample protection and you’ll be able to save some money. 

Clean before you pack your kitchen cabinets

A great way to start your life in a new home is with clean items. By cleaning your kitchenware you’ll have a much easier time unpacking. And they will be nice and shiny as soon as you take them out of the box. This also applies when storing items. Once you find cheap storage Brooklyn, clean everything and then store it. That way, you’ll prevent metal items from rusting too quickly. And everything will be ready for use as soon as you take it out of storage. 

Pro tip: Have a clean cloth ready at all times. If dust has settled in and can’t be wiped with a dry cloth, use a damp one. But make sure you wipe everything dry. 

Packing dinnerware from your kitchen cabinets

A great way to start the process is to place a couple of layers of air-filled plastic wrap on the bottom of the box. Then carefully wrap each piece with a layer of packing paper. Place a single item on the bottom followed by a layer of air-filled plastic wrap. And repeat the process. Packing fragile items takes time and patience. So go slow. Make sure you fill any gaps in the box so your dinnerware won’t move around during transport.

When packing your dinnerware make sure you wrap each item individually. And separate them with something soft.

Packing silverware

The worst thing about moving silverware is that it tends to move around too much. And the sorting is a big pain. Not to mention the fact that it can damage your other items. So, in this case, rubber bands are quite useful. Sort your silverware according to type. And give them a tight wrap with a rubber band. 

Pots and pans

Packing pots and pans are difficult because of their shape. And finding the right box is the key. Fortunately, they are not fragile. But you should still wrap them individually with air-filled plastic wrap. Or at least packing paper. And make sure they are packed tightly in the box.
