Why You Shouldn't DIY Your Kitchen or Bathroom Remodel


Unlike home improvement shows where a kitchen or a bathroom can be flawlessly transformed in thirty quick minutes, the reality of the remodeling process is much more complicated. Many homeowners are led to believe that even smaller upgrades, such as installing a new sink or replacing a bathtub, can be done in just a few hours, but they can get themselves into a sticky situation. If you’re considering updating the fixtures in your kitchen or bathroom, or you want to dive into a complete remodel, you should seek professional assistance to save yourself time, money, and lots of frustration.

You need the proper expertise required for the job

One of the primary reasons why DIY remodels go awry is because many of the systems in your home are deceptively intricate. The sewer and drain line for a sink might seem simple, but in actuality, the lines were built by professionals and one wrong move can potentially lead to extensive and costly damages. An experienced professional will be familiar with the working systems and their interactions, meaning they will be able to quickly and efficiently locate and mitigate any potential issues.

You need the correct equipment to complete the renovation

Another factor that often goes forgotten is the number and variety of tools required to complete a project. Contrary to popular DIY principles, a hammer, some nails, and a lot of elbow grease will not create the bathroom or kitchen of your dreams. The tools needed to successfully remodel parts of your home can become expensive very quickly, especially if you need more tools for a larger project. Although the aim of many DIY repairs or remodels is to save money, it’s often more cost-effective to skip a trip to the hardware store and contact a professional instead.

You need a plan to stay on track

What started out as a fun weekend project can quickly turn into a time-consuming mess with no end in sight. In parts of the house that essential to your comfort and everyday functionality, such as the kitchen or bathroom, remodels need to happen quickly so you can get back to using and enjoying your space. Professionals have the experience and equipment needed to get the job done the right way in as little time as possible.
