WhenBrakur_professionals.jpg the economy took a downturn many homeowners turned to DIY (Do it Yourself) projects in an effort to save money. It didn’t help that there were all these reality t.v. shows on cable that showed you just how “easy” these home renovations and remodeling projects could be. In just an hour of watching a television show homeowners could see and experience the before and after effects of a successful kitchen remodel. There were even free classes offered at your local home improvement store. To the average homeowner it seemed like no project was that hard to tackle.

Unfortunately many of these DIY projects turned into nightmares for many homeowners. What should have been a simple weekend project turned into more than homeowners bargained for and for many homeowners they were quickly in over there heads.

Many homeowners didn’t realize that many of these DIY individuals were professionals or had the help of professionals guiding them the whole way.  Brakur Custom Cabinetry was chosen to provide cabinets for the popular television show “Kitchen Crashers” on HGTV. They did a whole kitchen in three days and we provided cabinets for 16 episodes. While these show have their value they can’t possibly teach everything you need to know about a kitchen remodel in just and hour.

A recent Houzz kitchen trends study found that more homeowners decided to enlist the help of professionals during their 2015 kitchen-remodeling projects. Homeowners learned the hard way that a custom kitchen remodel is something that should be left to the professionals. It is more than just tearing out and putting in cabinets. Many learned from friend’s failed projects that the value of using a professional with years of experience is the way to go.   Nearly 87% of homeowners in 2015 chose to hire a professional for their kitchen renovation project. Many saved money and time using a professional and were much happier in the long run.
