Your kitchen is likely the hardest-working room in your home, so it makes sense it’s also often the first to wear out. Think of how many feet travel across its well-worn floor, how many plates and papers and food items are smeared across its counters, how often water is splashed onto the cupboards and walls. Of course, everyone would love a remodel on their kitchen now and then, but the problem usually comes down to the availability of time and money.
Have you ever considered, however, how many types of do-it-yourself kitchen remodeling projects there are? And you don’t even have to be a contractor, cabinet maker, or interior decorator to pull them off. Here are a few ideas to help get you started.
Replacing your floors can be one of the best ways to bring your kitchen up to date. To cut down on costs, consider installing the flooring yourself. You can often rent or borrow the tools necessary. If you want to install tile, you’ll need a wet saw, for wood and laminate, use a cut-off saw.
Cabinets are some of the most visible items in a kitchen and so it will make all the difference if you choose to remodel or redecorate them. Many home improvement stores have begun making homeowners’ lives easier by selling easy-to-install cabinetry with simple, easy-to-follow instructions included. The main tools you’ll need for this project are a drill, drill bits, and a level.
The options are diverse in this category. You might paint one wall an accent color, add a wallpaper border, remove or increase the amount of wall texture, or do some combination of all of the above. The most you’ll need for this project is the right paint, the wall paper, and possibly a ladder.
