Instructions
  • 1. Consider getting some kitchen remodeling
    software if you are going to do kitchen
    renovations yourself. That way, you can have
    everything mapped out in advance so you know
    exactly what materials you'll need and know that
    everything will fit nicely and look good.
  • 2. Get the tools that you'll need to do the
    kitchen remodeling. Nothing is more frustrating
    than being in the middle of a kitchen remodeling
    project and discovering that you don't have the
    right bit for your drill, for example.

Instructions
  • 3. Do any exterior work on your kitchen
    renovations first. If you need to tear down a
    wall, that is where you'll start. Just make sure
    it's not a load bearing wall!
  • 4. If you need new fixtures and outlets
    installed, this is a good time to do it. You will
    need to save any undercabinet lighting for later,
    but you can run the wires for it now. It is
    highly recommended that unless you are an expert
    in this area to hire this job out to a qualified
    electrician. Putting the wrong color of paint on
    the wall is one kind of mistake, getting a fatal
    shock is another altogether.

Instructions
  • 5. Next, paint your kitchen. When doing kitchen
    renovations, you'll find that paint has the most
    impact for the least money. Paint your kitchen a
    light color if you want it to appear spacious.
  • 6. Now is the time to install flooring if you
    have bought it. Make sure to get your
    measurements exactly right. You will also need
    the patience of Job.
  • 7. Install any appliances you have bought for
    your kitchen renovations.

Instructions
  • 8. The next step in kitchen renovations is
    installing cabinets. This is really not that
    difficult, as long as you've measured correctly.
    Buy some shims just in case your floor is not
    EXACTLY even. You'll want your cabinets to be
    exactly flush with one another.
  • 9. Install the countertop. If you've purchased
    linoleum countertop pieces for your kitchen
    renovation, then you'll find that it is fairly
    easy to attach them to the top of the cabinets.
    You may need to enlist the help of another
    person, however, as they are awkward to deal with.

Instructions
  • 10. Attach fixtures to faucets. If you are doing
    a kitchen renovation project, you'll be
    absolutely amazed at how many different types of
    faucets there are.
  • 11. At this point, you'll just be taking care of
    details. To finish off your kitchen renovations,
    you may want to hang up a pot rack, for example.
    Stand back and enjoy your work.
