5. WHO WILL DO THE WORK?
Are you going to hire a contractor, or do you plan to do-it-yourself?
When renovating your kitchen, there are two options: you can do it yourself (DIY), or you can hire a contractor.
If you’re comfortable with carpentry, or basic plumbing and electrical work, then you can do a lot of the renovation yourself. This can be cheaper than hiring a contractor, but it can be more difficult and time-consuming. Also depending on the extent of your renovation, you may need to hire a professional if you’re making changes which require a permit – like plumbing and electrical relocations.
If you don’t feel comfortable doing the renovation yourself, or don’t want the stresses that come with managing your project, then hiring a contractor is the best option. They will do all the work for you, and you can just sit back and relax.
