Remodeling - 10 Step Quick Start Checklist

If you're looking to give your kitchen a full remodelling, you'll probably have to substantially dismantle your existing arrangements. While many people choose to get professional help for the dismantling and disposal of their kitchen, it can actually be a straightforward DIY task if you're merely changing the units and not moving around the major utilities. If you're inclined to see your kitchen remodel as an opportunity for a hands-on DIY project, there are a few essential things you need to remember.

Safety is an all-important concern and you'll need to make sure your work environment is as safe as possible before you start dismantling. First of all, make sure that all circuits to the kitchen area are turned off. Tape down the breakers to ensure they don't inadvertently get turned back on. If it's not clear which circuits go to which area on your fuse box, then either turn off all the power or call in a professional. It's not worth the risk! If you need to move any major utilities such as the dishwasher or cooker, it's a good idea to shut off your gas and water supplies while you're working.

Once you've prepared a safe work environment, it's important to know where you're going to put all the refuse you'll create and the old units ready for disposal. That's why it's wise to hire a skip in advance to save yourself the hassle of dumping everything around the back of your property or making multiple trips to the recycling centre. Regardless of what you plan to do with the remnants of your old kitchen, it saves a lot of time if you have a convenient place to store them while you're working.

It's also vital that you avoid some of the most common mistakes that come with a DIY kitchen remodelling. For example, some people don't allow themselves enough time to remodel and consequently haven't made arrangements for a temporary kitchen space that can be used for basic cooking and perhaps eating. It's important to hang plastic covers over doorways to stop dust and debris from making its way into your living or dining rooms. Ignoring the need to cook and keep dust to a minimum can lead to unnecessary stress that may hold up the entire project.

The worktop will be screwed onto the base units from underneath, so its removal is a simple job of unscrewing the worktop, running a knife along the join between the worktop, and the tiles/wall if it's sealed with silicon, and lifting the worktop clear.

The biggest mistake you could make, though, is to damage either your walls or units that you want to reuse. In order to avoid this, it's important to remove all doors and drawers before thinking about removing the units. Then start by dismantling the base units, because this will allow you easier access to any cabinets mounted on the wall. Units are normally either screwed or bolted into the wall. In either case you need help from someone who will hold the wall unit in place while you unscrew/unbolt them.

These are just some starting tips to help you make your DIY kitchen remodelling run smoothly. Remember, if you're at all unsure about removing appliances, flooring or units, it's a good idea to opt for professional help. A DIY project can quickly go wrong if mistakes are made, so more complex projects will benefit immeasurably from in-depth, expert advice.
