Kitchen Make Over Guide
Fitting a new kitchen can cost thousands, especially if you pay fitters and installers to do all the work. If you are a little handy or really want to have a go at installing a new kitchen yourself, then the video series below will be worth some time watching. It gives you some great advice and walks you through the steps you will need to take in order to do this job. The Series is by ToolSelect.com and their web site is worth a look too for other neat guides 🙂
Make sure if you are planning on doing this yourself that you prepare well in advance.
Have all the tools required for each stage, the new equipment that you wish to install and some help on hand. It’s never going to be easy to remove ovens, dish washers and especially cabinets from walls by yourself.
The other thing to remember is that this is unlikely to be just a day or two job if you are doing most of the work yourself. Allow for a few days, possibly a week off in order to get the complete job finished, especially if this is the first time you are attempting it.
If after watching the videos you decide that its just too much to take on yourself and bring in the pro’s, at least you will know what to expect, what to watch for and how things should be done properly 🙂
