Why A DIY Kitchen Or Bathroom Renovation Is A Bad Idea
DIY or do-it-yourself activities are gaining substantial popularity today as building or fixing something on your own comes with a great sense of pride and satisfaction. With easy access to tutorials on YouTube, Instagram, and Pinterest, it's never been easier to find instructions to DIY almost any kind of project from knitting to building furniture and remodeling your home.
If you’re interested in taking on a DIY home improvement project, for instance, fixing a leaky faucet or painting a kitchen cabinet, there are tons of guides on the internet to help you. However, if you’re looking to engage in a much larger DIY project like the renovation of your kitchen or bathroom, you’ll need a lot more than a crash course tutorial.
Depending on the scale of your renovation plans, there are several aspects to consider before you dive into a bathroom and kitchen renovation. More importantly, there are multiple complications you may encounter throughout the renovation process that could drain you financially. To give you an idea of how bad things could get, the experts at Deluxe Painting and Renos have explained three reasons why a DIY kitchen or bathroom renovation is a bad idea.
1. Disturbing electrical wires and plumbing lines.
If you plan on giving your kitchen and bathroom a major facelift, you’ll need to map out your existing wiring and plumbing to avoid disrupting them. If you aren’t sure where your electricals and plumbing lines are, you could end up damaging them or getting electrocuted.
2. Doubling your expenses through costly mistakes.
Failing to renovate your kitchen or bathroom according to plan can lead to costly rework. In case there is a problem with the renovation work done behind walls, you’ll incur charges to break the wall, fix the problem, and replaster the wall all over again.
3. Undesired trouble with the law.
According to State rules and regulations, to conduct residential construction, you must possess certification for the right authorities. At the same time, you need accurate knowledge of building codes. Commencing any renovation work without these requirements could lead to hefty fines from the State.
