  1. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    I'm looking to do a light refresh of my kitchen to include removing backsplash tile, lowering a knee-wall to make the counter one level, new countertop, new sink, garbage disposal and faucet. Potentially doing an air-gap button for the garbage disposal. **one surprise that has surfaced is that...

    The maple cabinets are 22 years old. My choices to paint are between: 1. Zinsser B-I-N shellac based primer (white tintable) and ECLWT-0130-1 (Eclipse Satin White tint base 1) from GEMINI 2. INSL-X SXA-110 Stix acrylic Waterborne Bonding Primer and Insl-X Cabinet Coat Satin Finish CC65 urethane...

    Hi, we're nearing the end of a kitchen remodel, and the tile contractor didn't make sure the floor was level. It dips from left to right under the refrigerator (the cabinet box, itself, is level and plumb). This causes the fridge to sit crooked in the 36" cabinet box, so much that it can barely...

    Hi Everyone, I’ve been following the forum for a while for tips, but this is my first time posting. I’m planning a kitchen Reno, and would like to remove two walls opening up the space to the dining room. From my understanding this is not a load bearing wall, it is in between one and a beam...

    Hello, a professional repairman installed a new sink, and it leaked a lot. So they returned and applied clear Silicone Caulk to the exterior edges. Then it still leaked some, so he again returned and applied a lot more clear Silicone Caulk to the exterior edges and faucet base. Now there is...

    Hello everyone, I'm a new house owner and with winter over I'm having a HUGE ant problem. I found this gap in the kitchen tile. I'm wondering what would be the proper way or best way I could fix this? I was thinking of buying some caulk and filling it in. Also on my deck sliding door there is a...

    Greetings Everyone, We are doing a full kitchen remodel this summer and I am working on replacing/modifying the kitchen light box pictured. My wife wants “faux beams” and to (hopefully) make it larger so it doesn’t look like an old kitchen light box. I am planning to add tongue and groove...

    I want to change dual shut-off valves (cold + hot) under my kitchen sink. Turned out, installed ones are screwed onto threaded copper pipes that are measured ~2.12mm (~7/8 inch) in outer diameter. Such size seems to match 3/4 “nominal” size copper pipe (which seems not be the same as 3/4 garden...

    My cabinets are slowly pulling away the wall at the top. Any suggestions on how to fix would be much appreciated. https://youtube.com/shorts/h75WQH27MF4?feature=share

    Ahoy, thanks ahead to all who chime in on this. Kitchen soffits removed. Only thing found in them was this 2" vent for sink drain. Can this be re-routed through the top plate of this outside wall? Well, I know it CAN be done, but should it is the question.
  12. Painting
    We’re currently remodeling our kitchen and hired someone to refinish our cabinets. We decided to go with an oil-based paint for the superior durability. The cabinets were de-glossed, sanded, and primed in preparation. We went with Behr Oil-Base Semi-Gloss Enamel and their Multi-Surface...

    Hi, I have a kitchen backsplash to put in with a kitchen renovation project. After removing old tile off of a cement and chicken wire backing, I think I have a good surface to apply the new tile to. Is that an appropriate way of thinking about it or should I remove the cement off the walls and...
  14. HVAC
    Purchased a home with a broken microwave, which I finally decided on replacing. Turns out there's some really odd ducting happening and pretty sure the old "solution" didn't vent much at all. There's an off-center 7 inch diameter pipe protruding about 3 inches out, situated only 5 inches above...

    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...
  16. Interior Decorating
    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...
