Is it difficult to do a kitchen remodeling project yourself?





Once all the old cabinets have been removed, and the kitchen is down to the bare walls, is it difficult to install new cabinets and make everything fit perfectly and be level, plumb, and square?

Should I install the tile flooring over the entire floor, even under the new cabinets, before I install the cabinets?

    Re did mine and it was quite fun. Use a 2×4 and level it to the bottom line for the cabinets. you can rest the cabinet on the 2×4 when putting it up. And yes…It’s best to install the flooring over the whole floor.

    If your handy no problem, if your not just measure 2-3 times and a level is your best friend.

    Cabinets in the kitchen are nothing more than fancy boxes. You may not need to replace them. You can just replace the doors, it’s much cheaper. The boxes remain the same, they rarely go bad, just repaint them if needed.

    The kitchen is a common place many homeowners start their remodeling projects. Here is some “food for thought” to consider. After reading this you should have a better understanding on how you would like to change your kitchen around and be the talk of all the neighbors. Here are some suggestions to consider when you are starting your project:

    Appliances
    This is a good place to start.
    Take a look at the colors.

    Counter-tops
    This is a well used surface in the kitchen so you or any remodeler will start here. Depending on the habits of the one who cooks these surfaces may be stained or scratched from a lot of use.

    Cabinets
    This should be your third area of attack. When people walk inside of your kitchen this will be the first item they see because it is located at eye level. Worn out or faded cabinets can really make your kitchen look half a century old! Replace these as soon as you can.
    You will have two options. The cabinets can be refinished (sanded and repainted) or they can be totally replaced. The second is the most expensive, of course, but if you want to drastically change the look of your kitchen then you might want to go with this option.

    Kitchen Flooring
    Flooring accentuates all of your other items. It can totally bring your kitchen to life!
    You basically have four options: laminate, ceramic, hardwood, vinyl, and linoleum flooring. Again, each one has its pros and cons and within those flooring types there is a large swing in quality.
    For instance some laminate looks just as real as hardwood or stone while cheaper laminate flooring which you can get for $2 a square foot looks nice but at the same time definitely fakish looking.
