If you have an old house it's probably time for a kitchen makeover. Unfortunately, a kitchen remodel can be extremely expensive and intrusive for everyday life in your household. Forget the finances and try to imagine your life without easy access to a stove, or even a microwave for that matter. If you want to do a kitchen remodel, this is what your life is going to be like for at least a few weeks, but it could all be well worth it if you really want the makeover to happen.
A kitchen renovation can definitely be a DIY project, but you need to know what you are signing up for before you dive in. Are you simply going to paint the kitchen cabinets and call it a day? You could do a simple kitchen makeover like this in just a day or two. However, if you are going to expand your budget and do an honest kitchen makeover on your own the process is going to take much more time and money to get done. Depending on your budget you could spend anywhere from five hundred dollars to fifty thousand dollars on a kitchen renovation, so you need to be careful before you get yourself in over your head. You can watch the TailHappyTV video showcasing his recent kitchen remodel that was mostly a DIY project to get an idea of what a strict budget renovation can accomplish. Arm yourself with some knowledge prior to ripping out your cabinets and counter tops so you don't do yourself in during your DIY kitchen renovation.
