DIY Kitchen remodel is one of the most common DIY projects for homeowners. And it goes a long way in improving your home’s value, aesthetic, and comfort.
Whether you’re getting ready to sell and need to update, or you’re tired of your outdated tile or counter color, here are 3 easy ways to make your DIY kitchen remodel as simple as possible.
Step #1: Allow Yourself Plenty Of Time And Space
DIY projects always take longer than you think it will (I know)! Even if you’re a tried and true DIY vetran, you should always plan for more time in case something goes wrong or you need more time to troubleshoot an issue.
And by plenty of time, I mean days extra. DIY can be surprising when it comes to time consumption. So don’t plan any family parties the week of your kitchen DIY remodel.
Give your project plenty of space as well. Take time to tape and rope off areas for work and use covers to protect vulnerable furniture and materials from being damaged. You’ll want to clear out a space where you can still prepare meals and eat. If that’s not possible, then take time before you start your project to prepare freezer meals that you can easily heat and eat wherever.
Step #2: Measure Twice Cut Once
As the saying goes, measure twice and cut once. Making sure you have the right measurements for new appliances, cupboards, floor corners, and anything else you can think of. It will save you the headache.
Getting your measurements in your DIY kitchen remodel right will also save you from wasting your expensive materials.
Step #3: Double-Check Before You Start
This is a broad step, but it really does apply to everything.
Double check your timeline, your budget, your measurements, your tools, and your materials.
It’s a good idea to bring home paint colors and samples of materials you will be using. They can look very different under various types of lighting.
You don’t want to second-guess yourself after the project.
Follow these simple steps and you’re going to be just fine during your remodeling project.
