Pros and Cons of Doing Kitchen Demolition Yourself

Kitchen demolition takes a medium level of skill, as it involves appliance and cabinet removal.

Demolishing your kitchen yourself can save you money, but things can go wrong, too, just as it can in any demolition project.

We’ll go over the pros and cons of handling kitchen demolition yourself to help determine if this is the right option for you.

Before we can discuss the benefits and drawbacks, you should have a general understanding of what you’d be getting yourself into.

Here’s the general kitchen demolition process:

  1. Turn off the electricity in the kitchen.

  2. Remove cabinet doors, drawers, and the rest of the cabinet bodies.

  3. Turn off the water below the kitchen sink, and cut the water line connected to the refrigerator.

  4. Turn off the main gas line, and turn off the valve at the back of the stove.

  5. Put down a drop cloth, and remove all appliances with a dolly.

  6. Remove non-loadbearing walls if desired.

Advantages to Doing Kitchen Demolition Yourself

1. You could save quite a bit of money.

The best part about choosing to do kitchen demolition yourself is the money you’ll save in the process.

If you don’t have any hazardous materials, you could handle the demo work yourself and save this much money on your kitchen remodel budget.

2. It will be easier to salvage.

If you decide to take apart your kitchen yourself, it will be much easier for you to set aside anything you want to reuse, recycle, donate, or sell.

This is another way you can save some money.

Not only that, but selling usable materials in a garage sale or donating them to your local ReStore rather than sending it off to the landfill is a way of helping your community and the environment, too.

3. You’ll get to destroy some stuff.

Who doesn’t relish the opportunity to just wreck stuff?

Ripping up floors, pulling out cabinets, maybe even hammering through a wall or two…these are just a few of the joys of DIY demolition.
