Never drink and drill

The cabinet doors will never hang straight.  No, a level doesn’t help.  What you need is a board or other fixed element to use as a standard.  Fortunately, the bottom of the cabinet face has one.  Unfortunately, the beer was delicious.

(It’s fine now.  I had to curse at it for awhile)

Always use sanded grout.  Because it looks better, that’s why.

Lift with your legs.  Yes, they *do* always tell you this.  There’s a good reason.  Ok, do it your way, you’ll find out.

Get an eggshell finish for your dark hallway.  The limited light you have will bounce from wall to wall.

Triple check the print outs for you kitchen.  No, quadruple check them.  Otherwise, the cabinet above the stove will be two inches too short and offset by an inch and a half, making it impossible for you to reconnect the outside vent, and your refrigerator will be boxed in no matter how many times you told the designer not to do that.

Your turn to share renovation wisdom.
