WHAT’S WORTH DIY-ING?

Real Homes - - Advertorial -

When get­ting quotes, ask for a break­down – if you’re a con­fi­dent DIYER then rip­ping out the old kitchen might be an area you can save money on. Just fac­tor in the trips to the tip or the hire of a skip if needed, and what will need ‘mak­ing good’ be­fore your kitchen fit­ters ar­rive. If you plan to fit your new kitchen your­self, you’ll need to be con­fi­dent in your skills (and any­thing elec­tri­cal or gas­re­lated will need to be fit­ted by qual­i­fied trades). Re­mem­ber, fit­ters do this ev­ery day, so can deal with any prob­lems that crop up. You may want to de­sign your new kitchen plan and take it to the show­rooms for quotes. Lis­ten to what each has to of­fer; they may sug­gest a de­sign so­lu­tion or a cost sav­ing you hadn’t thought of.
