Saving a dollar is better than spending a dollar, but at what cost are we willing to save money? Although DIY or Do-It-Yourself projects are getting more popular among the masses sometimes cutting costs actually costs you more money in the long run. Even with DIY resources like videos, articles and physical workshops you have to be honest with yourself and gauge how much hands on experience and how skilled you really are in terms of remodeling.

For your next kitchen remodeling project it may be advantageous to hire a design team and a contractor. The cost may seem high at first, but once you realize the all inclusive pricing it may seem more reasonable. Hiring a team of kitchen remodeling professionals gives you peace of mind. Their team will often offer free consultations to understand your needs and design ideas, create a scope of work and time line, and provide a team of contractors, designers, and manpower to get the work done. These relationships are difficult to build outside of the professional atmosphere because, let’s face it, we’re not typically not kitchen remodeling professionals.
Designers help you create your vision with the latest trends and materials likely at a wholesale cost and can make sure you stay within a designated budget. They can give you professional advice on the performance of materials like countertops and cabinets and offer their expert opinions on certain design techniques and functionality. And since you can’t estimate the cost of accountability with a professional kitchen remodeling team you can trust that if there are mistakes, they can fix it.

DIY CONS:

  • Scheduling Constraints and Limited Project Timelines
  • Retail Cost of materials
  • Lack of Expertise
  • Possibility of hiring a professional to fix mistakes
  • Lack of product, material and design knowledge
  • Financial Risks
  • Emotional and physical stress

When you list out just a few of the DIY concerns it’s easy to see why hiring a kitchen design professional like Domicile in San Francisco, may be the best option for your kitchen remodeling project.
