Why DIY your kitchen renovation?

A kitchen renovation is an exciting new project! One of the biggest questions before you get started is – do I DIY, or do I go for a full service solution?

Each project is unique, and the answer depends on a number of factors. Here are the key reasons for why to DIY for your kitchen renovation, or cabinetry project!

Take out the middle person

By project managing your kitchen renovation yourself, you take out the need for a middle man, who would otherwise be charging a fee for their services. All you need is to be organised, and have a list of the works and trades you will need, and in what order.

We recommend you contact your trades well in advance of your project starting, to check their availability and gain any tips or insights from their experience.

Add value to your home, cost-effectively

Renovating a kitchen adds value to your home. When done by DIY, you’re saving $$$ on services and some trades, which can be used elsewhere on other home improvement projects, or kept in the bank!

Note, there are some plumbing and electrical tasks that require qualified trades to complete the work and cannot be DIY.

Check out our top tips for how to save on your DIY renovation and details on our Interest Free financing.

Learn something new

Are you someone who loves a project? Then this is the ultimate for you. Between design, measure, project management, and installation, you’re sure to learn something new!

A kitchen renovation does require some handy-person skills and experience – if there’s anything you’re not sure on, we have how-to videos to help guide you through the installation process, plus a range of planning tools to get your started.

Create your dream

Going DIY means you’re involved in every detail of the project, from design and measure, through to installation and completion. It allows you to be hands on throughout, to bring your dream to life exactly as you want it.

DIY made easy

In a lot of cases, a DIY kitchen means flat-pack and standard cabinet sizes. This isn’t the case with U-Install-It! At U-Install-It, we have the complete DIY solution;
