Kitchen Cabinet Remodeling

DIY versus Professional Installation

We’ve all seen them on television; those do-it-yourself home remodel shows that make every decision to knock out a wall or replace your entire kitchen look quick and easy. While the shows are great and the results always turn out so beautifully, the truth is that a little TV magic goes a long way to creating what appears to be an easy undertaking.

Choosing the Right Remodel Path—DIY

Whether you’re at Home Depot, searching the internet, or watching an episode of Kitchen Crashers, you’ll more than likely find something or someone that tells you it’s easy to tear out those old cabinets and just put some new ones in using that pre-fab kit you found at your favorite store.

Though you might feel you have a penchant for the DIY route, let’s look at a few challenges you might not have thought about.


  1. Each section will need to be cut exactly to fit existing appliances.
  2. Countertops will need to be measured, cut and placed perfectly for balance.
  3. Track/recessed lighting will need to be well-thought-out.
  4. Painting/staining might be a factor.
  5. Plumbing and water lines will need to be taken in consideration.
  6. Exhaust fans/outlets will need to be deliberated.
  7. Will your kitchen require an island?

While these are just a few of the many things you’ll encounter when trying to do-it-yourself, there are even more factors to consider that revolve around electricity, plumbing and scalability.
