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.
