The tools you will probably need to rework your kitchen depend on how comprehensive your project is going to be and how much of the work you plan to do yourself. If you are going to undertake the entire kitchen, you’ll require some tools to remove the cabinets and flooring. To take out everything from the kitchen, the essential tools you will need are screwdriver, crowbar, power screwdriver, hammer and saw.
A large number of cabinets are held up by screws, therefore the screwdriver is needed to get the cabinets out without doing too much damage to the walls. If you wish to install the old cabinets in a different part of your home, then you will need to be careful when you remove them. If you basically plan to dump them, then you don’t need to be too concerned with the doors and hinges. To get the top cabinets down and out-of-the-way, you will also need a step ladder. If you want to take away the lower cabinets first, you probably want to take out the kitchen sink and appliances. If you don’t have a plumber for that, you will need wrenches or pliers to uninstall the sink, and garbage disposal, if you have one.
The cutting saw is going to be needed to take off the countertop off since you will be sawing them into small pieces. Taking off the flooring surfaces will be easy once you have removed the lower cabinet. At this time, everything should be out of the kitchen, in order to inspect the walls, and if need be, replace the sheet rock. If the walls and ceiling are in fair shape, you may simply need to do a little patch work or retexture. Once that is finished, you can replace the electrical outlets and switches and repaint the walls and ceiling. You will most likely need drywall and painting supplies as well as electrical tools. Before you buy, check to see if you possess the tools and supplies already.
Some people already have the tools necessary to do the job and also the experience. For others, not only is it going to be a discovering experience, but a number of tools will need to be purchased.
