Calling all DIY enthusiasts! Why not push yourself, test your skills and take on a bigger project? If this thought appeals to you then you could do a lot worse than take on an attempt to fit your own kitchen cabinets or even your kitchen sink. Why not? The kitchen is a great room for DIY so give it some thought.

The key to getting it right and the room not ending up as a disaster is definitely down to the planning and organising.

DIY Kitchen RemodelingBefore you buy so much as a drawer you need to make sure you have planned the room properly, from hardwood flooring to your kitchen cabinets, to your sink and fridge space. Assembled kitchen cabinets come in a range of standard sizes so it is easy to build up a scheme for your kitchen using a pencil and graph paper or a specially designed computer program.

Kitchen manufacturers, suppliers and retailers will often offer a kitchen design service for free so why not at least compare their ideas with your own before you take the plunge and get ordering – it doesn’t hurt to look. And if you’re looking for custom made kitchen cabinets and units they could probably help you with that too, and you could get a kitchen that would really stand out and be memorable.

If you select from a range of luxury kitchens then you really need to be confident that you are up to the job before you start the work, you really do not want to make any mistakes in this case, trust me. Mess ups will be difficult and frustrating to fix, and your other half will never forgive you! Get some advice from some of your more experienced friends about any tricky corners which you need to navigate around, and if all else fails then get the experts in. It’s important that you’re not afraid to get professional help.

Remember, it could cost a lot more for them to rectify your mistakes and start again than it might cost to fit the kitchen in the first place – never mind potential damage to your new units or your new hardwood doors.

Having said all that, fitting your own kitchen can be a highly rewarding experience so take the time to get it right and you will be able to admire the results for years to come.

Kitchen Cabinet Painting

Painting your kitchen is a fun and easy task which can save you the cost of replacing your worn cabinets. Doing it yourself leaves can be a daunting task but is easily achievable with very little effort.

Before replacing your old kitchen cabinets, check to see if they can be salvaged with a little paint. You can have several local cabinet makers provide you with their opinion and free estimates. If they’re in decent condition and only require some sanding and a coat of paint, they might be worth saving.

Kitchen Painting Ideas

One of the hottest interior design trends around at the moment is bright and bold hues. They’ve been making their mark in fashion and they’re also making a big impression in the world of design, so it makes sense to embrace the trend when you’re painting your kitchen.

You can be as daring as you want when it comes to choosing the design of your kitchen. It’s entirely up to you whether you decide to paint the kitchen walls in bold patterns or just paint your assembled kitchen cabinets so they’re all in bright colours. If you love luxury kitchens, you should be trying to redecorate yours so it has stylish and contemporary features in it to make it look stunning.

One sleek design option you could try out would be to have all of your cabinets painted red, with black furniture around the room, and chrome work surfaces and appliances throughout the space. This will create a simple, yet effective, colour scheme in the room. Another option could be to go for really daring and bold shades throughout the space.

You could use bright-coloured tiles to create patterns across the walls, opting for complementary colours to paint your cabinets and furniture in. You could make your décor a bit more interesting by adding some fabrics to help incorporate colour into the space as well. After painting your kitchen units, you could add printed fabric panels to the doors to add a splash of brightness to the space.

Have Fun!

Most importantly don’t forget to have fun and enjoy the project with the rest of the family.
