  1. Project Showcase
    Kitchen is messy in after photo—I started out doing a concrete over lay on the yellow laminate countertop, ending up doing an epoxy overlay. I removed all the cabinet doors, sanded and painted them, replaced the hinges and handles, painted the inside of cabinets, and wallpaper on the back, I did...

    Hi, I'm about to try peel & stick wallpaper for the first time, in our kitchen (we rent, so peel/stick is our best option). Most of it is pretty self explanatory, in terms of where to to start and stop, etc. But I'd love some ideas on how to handle this one end wall. I have a narrow wall area...

    I have been looking for two things... what is this drawer pull out handle (built into frame of drawer) called? How can I cut/make these so they are all (3 or more) exactly the same (template/pattern) drawer pull/handle? Not sure what tools to use to make this happen...

    I'm remodeling my kitchen and want to put an undercabinet lighting outlet inside a cabinet. My kitchen wall is opposite my master bedroom. There's an outlet on the bedroom wall in line with where I want to put the outlet in the kitchen cabinet. Is it up to code to tap into that circuit in the...

    I'm getting rid of a pantry within my kitchen. The galley kitchen is bounded on the long sides by load bearing walls. In the photos attached you'll see the back wall of the pantry has the joists ending from both directions and overhanging a bit in both directions in the attic. Another thing...

    I’m installing kitchen cabinets (bases only) against this wall. The drain pipe will run from the sink directly under the window to the right where the stack is. The pipe will be right up against the concrete block and coming off the wall at just under 2 inches. My question is what’s the best way...
  7. Plumbing
    I made an awful assumption that I would easily be able to connect our new undermount sink with no real issues. We got new tops and I refinished the cabinets, so the cabinets were never removed. I DIY just about everything but with plumbing I've only ever done some very basic tasks. The drain...
  8. Electrical
    Asking for a pretty easy check-in with a wiring change. This is pretty basic, but I'd rather ask the dumb questions and be sure. I want to move my fridge from one part of the kitchen to another. In the attached diagram, the top is my current kitchen setup up. The bottom is what I want to do...
  9. Appliances
    We bought a new standard size standing fridge, just a fridge. But even with it full with food I can't seem to stop it from sliding or jiggling on our tiled floor. I know this isn't good for the fridges life span so I need to know what type of mat should I invest my money in to prevent it from...
  10. Building & Construction
    Hi all! I'm redoing the basement kitchen and after removing the cabinets I found that they were sitting on old 2x4s recessed into the concrete. I'm left with a recession that is about 1" deep along the exterior wall and 2" deep on the inside of the recession where the tiles are. I'm thinking...
  11. HVAC
    We just bought a house that we're doing some renovations on. The chimney style hood fan in the kitchen - that was listed as 'custom' - is a joke. It barely moves any air. I had my contractor look at it, its basically a tiny recirculating fan from over an electric stove that they put into an...

    Hi All! I wanted to refresh kitchen in the house I am renting. The owners/previous tenants painted the tiles, cupboards and the old wallpaper and it's just hideous. I have quite few questions :D The paint from the tiles is peeling off especially near the sink and hob. It looks like it will be...

    Hello again, I am now trying to change the cartridges on my Pfister, two handle sink that has no bolts holding the handles on, nor is there any set screws. I am assuming the escutcheon unscrews but it just keeps on turning. Do I need to tighten the nut under the sink because the thing is just...
  14. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    Hi, So I'm looking to buy a new home and expecting that I'll be renovating the basement. I'm only wanting to do minimal work. No walls only kitchen and bathroom. I will higher a professional to do the rough-in's on electrical and plumbing and do the rest myself. I'm not expecting the basement...

    hi, currently my stove is placed in the middle of the kitchen wall and i want to put it in the corner and turn it 90 degrees (so it faces front but related to the adjacent wall). a person/repair suggested that the only thing that'd need to happen is to extend the flexible line to where the stove...

    I’m looking for ideas for a flooring colour or a counter top change that will compliment the oak cabinets. Any ideas? The fridge will soon be replaced with black stainless.

    Hi, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Im not sure how to lay the kitchen and the living in this space. (Photo provided) Its a second floor, which we are turning into an apartment. The rooms are not in the picture. Its a 2 level floor. I want an open concept kitchen and living room...
  18. Insulation
    Hello, all. New member here. My wife and I recently built a new house, and put a windowed garage door in, instead of a traditional patio door. For reference, the door is the Amarr Vista, and is 8'x8'. The glass is a great thermal barrier, but the door frame itself needs some insulation. Here is...

    I have a Moen pulldown faucet and recently replaced my sink. Previously I had no issues with the faucet not retracting, however, now it will only retract all the way if the water is turned off. Otherwise it is stuck wherever I have pulled it out to. I Have moved the weight all over the hose...
