Never Make These Awful Reno Fails

If you're looking to spruce up your home, the Property Brothers have some advice for you on what you definitely don’t want to do.

"One thing that I do see a lot — and it looks terrible when you're trying to sell the house, too — is when people paint their cabinets in their kitchen," Drew shared. "If you just come in with a latex paint and paint it — think of how much use a door gets and then it just starts to get scratched and starts to slough off, and it looks terrible.”

"If you're getting inspiration online, make sure you're following somebody who is a professional who knows what they're doing," Johnathan said. He also added that you shouldn't reach out to him on social media asking whether or not it's ok to take out a wall in your home. "Like, if you are tweeting me that question, you should not do any structural work at all," he said.

The Scott brothers recommend getting professional help when it comes to the big stuff. "Anytime it involves something that requires a skilled professional or permits, whether that's electrical plumbing structure, those are things you really want to have done by a professional," said Jonathan.
