Kitchen Remodeling Projects You Shouldn’t DIY

With the popularity of home remodeling shows, it’s no surprise that you’ve given some thought to doing your kitchen remodeling projects by yourself. During the home remodeling shows, professionals will have the homeowners help out with some of the kitchen remodeling services such as installing countertops, painting cabinets, and even breaking down walls.

But, putting a coat of paint on a cabinet is much different than doing a full remodel by yourself. While there are some aspects of your kitchen makeover you might be able to do, here are some remodels that should always be done by a professional.

Kitchen Remodeling Projects for the Pros

Replacing Floors

If you’re planning on using a less expensive laminate floor option, you may have read something online about how easy it is to do yourself. An incorrectly installed floor can actually be a danger to you and your family down the road. Let a professional be the one to ensure the flooring is properly down.

Installing Appliances

You might be able to plug in a microwave or a fridge and call it a day, but for stovetops, ovens, or other higher powered equipment, consider calling in a craftsman to help. This is especially true if your appliance needs a gas or water hook up. It’ll be worth the expense to know your appliances are installed correctly giving you some added peace of mind.

Replacing Countertops or Cabinets

From cabinets to countertops, consider having each installed by a professional. Poorly installed cabinets – especially hanging ones – can be a hazard for both you and your belongings. When not properly installed, countertops are more likely to fall, break or lead to water damage.

Plumbing and Electrical Work

Pipes that aren’t properly set up or fixed can lead to extreme flooding down the line, and electrical work that isn’t done professionally can be a fire hazard. Despite your comfort level, any kitchen remodeling projects that involve wiring or plumbing should always be done by a professional.
