If you've ever packed up a kitchen and moved it across town or country, you know the experience is often rife with surprises. You didn't pack your plates correctly, and five of them broke. You couldn't find the toaster for two weeks. You didn't realize your new kitchen had three fewer cabinets than your old kitchen, or that the new dishwasher was so loud, it scared your dog.
So, cook to cook, tell us: What do you wish someone had told you to think about before you move into a new kitchen?
Maybe it's essentials to pack in your Moving Day box, or that you should've checked all the outlets were working. Maybe you should have hired a professional cleaner (because deep cleaning yourself is time-consuming and exhausting) or measured the floor space beforehand so you would have known your kitchen island wasn't going to fit.
What advice do you wish you'd had before moving kitchens?
