It is the place where you candidly relish the art of cooking and spend many hours to prepare delicious food for you, your family and your relatives. More often than not, a modern residential kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, a microwave oven, a sink with the hot and cold water running, a mixer-grinder, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, and kitchen cabinets to store kitchen utensils & raw food materials. Crockery sets, cutlery sets, glassware, blender, toaster, and other small electrical appliances are also usually found in a residential kitchen.

General tips for packing your kitchen
Secure the at the bottom of any boxes with a correct amount of tape. You’ll want to tape across the midst seam, across the 2 side seams, & for heavy boxes, you’ll want to double up on the tape.
If a box is going to have breakable or fragile items in it, line the bottom of the box with cushioning —that could be bubble wrap, packing chips, or anything else that will protect your items.
Don’t let breakable items rub up against the inner walls of the box—put some cushioning between the items and the cardboard.
- Wrap individual items in packing paper to protect them.
- Nest together like-sized items such as flatware and bowls.
- Use your dish towels to wrap fragile items.
- Pack small items inside food storage containers.
- Fill in any empty spaces in the box with packing chips, packing paper, or bubble wrap after you’ve packed the items.
- Clearly mark any boxes with breakable items with “Fragile.”
- Don’t pack boxes that are too heavy to lift or move around easily.
- Clearly label all of your boxes so you know what to unpack first.
