Kitchen Design – Doing it yourself vs using a contractor vs using a designer

There’s a reason we hear so many “kitchen remodel nightmare” stories. There’s a lot that goes into not only kitchen design, but the actual kitchen remodel itself. What may seem like ‘just’ replacing a few cabinets and flooring, can easily become overwhelming as the complexity of taking on a DIY kitchen project grows. Suddenly, many DIY kitchen remodelers find themselves in over their heads as the reality of moving plumbing lines or adding additional electrical outlets (or, in some cases, electrical panels) to meet new code requirements becomes clear or the new kitchen cabinets you ordered have been delayed by two months and you just demolished your kitchen…..

Another alternative is to hire a kitchen designer. Kitchen designers can help you work through the layout of your kitchen as well as assist in decisions about cabinets, countertops, flooring, backsplash, lighting, appliances – the list goes on. However, be warned, many kitchen designers then pass their kitchen design plans off to an independent kitchen General Contractor (GC). It then becomes the GC’s responsibility to build the kitchen as designed. This can be problematic if issues arise: as a homeowner, there is no worse place to be than feeling like you’ve been left project managing the whole thing to bridge the gap or playing referee between two different companies with neither taking responsibility for keeping your kitchen remodeling project on time and budget.
