Why kitchen cabinets remodeling is better left up to the professionals.
Today on the Scandinavian Marble blog we want to talk about DIY remodeling disasters. Like everyone else we understand why homeowners may want to save money by remodeling their kitchen cabinets on their own.
However, in our time in the business we have seen many people break the bank correcting a do-it-themselves disaster.
The problem with do it yourself home renovations in general tends to be that the people doing it are inexperienced.
Homeowners will read one or two tutorials for renovating their kitchen cabinets online and then foolishly believe that they can manage it.
Unfortunately, what this lends to are poorly finished kitchens that need to be fixed up before the house can be sold. In some cases the DIY project turns out so badly that the homeowner has to start from scratch and hire us to do an entire kitchen makeover.
So, what do we recommend that homeowners do if they are working with a budget? Rather than attempting to renovate their entire kitchen themselves we suggest that they save money in other places. For example, homeowners can usually get away with painting their own kitchen. If they are handy, they may even be able to install their cabinets themselves (but still have them made by a professional).
At the very least, before you attempt to do your own kitchen cabinet remodeling make an appointment to speak with an expert. The consultation won’t cost you a thing and the design experts will be able to provide you with tons of great advice. In most cases after speaking to the kitchen remodeling professionals homeowners typically decide to invest in the project. We chalk this up to trusting the experts and knowing what part of the renovation you can do yourself and what parts you shouldn’t.
The kitchen is usually the most expensive room in the house to renovate. When you factor in the cost of demolition, construction and materials you are looking a pretty penny if you want to get the job done right. Some people, looking for a quick and affordable way to update their kitchen cabinets opt for cutting corners in the materials department. This is actually not a very good idea because you end up spending more money in the long run when you need to replace the cheap kitchen counters and cabinets that you have purchased. This is why we recommend that people who are considering a renovation, budget for high quality materials instead. Even though the initial cost may be substantially more the finished products appearance and durability will be well worth the investment, we promise.

If you have ever been to Ikea or Home Depot and seen the “Kitchen Kits” that they sell, then you know what we mean by cheap. Most of the time the countertops and kitchen cabinets in these kits are made of laminate plastics, which do not hold up over time. They may work for a quick update to the look of your kitchen. Over time, however, the counters and cabinetry will quickly become scuffed and faded. Installing low-grade materials in your home will not help increase it’s value. The cheap materials that you have chosen to use will need to be replaced within a few years and will likely put off potential buyers.
High-end materials such as Scandinavian Marble countertops and cabinet fixtures on the other hand actually increase the resale value of your home. When people walk into your kitchen they can immediately see the difference. Because marble can last for years and stands up astonishingly well over time it is well worth the value that you pay. When you invest in high quality materials for your kitchen renovation the difference is truly noticeable.
If you want that “wow” factor that makes your kitchen look like it belongs in the pages of “Home and Garden” then you should choose Scandinavian Marble for your next renovation. Yes, it does cost more than your standard kitchen kit. But what you get is a high-end modern kitchen that is completely customized to suit your unique needs.
