How To Budget A Kansas City Bathroom Remodel

How to budget kansas city bathroom remodel

Kansas City homeowners have many options for bathroom remodeling on a budget. There are things you can save on which will allow you to get some higher end fixtures for your Kansas City remodeling. For instance, painting the walls doesn’t cost very much and should be done because a new color will completely change how you feel about your bathroom. Don’t bother adding any extra or fancy texture or getting any special features for the walls because it’s better to let your walls be the background and not something that should stand out. You can get some nice decorative molding or hardware instead for towel bars, toilet paper holders, clothing hooks. And you can get a nice but inexpensive painting or decorative items that should stand out a little and make colors pop.

Keep Your Large Bathroom Mirror When Remodeling

Many times, if you keep certain things for your Kansas Kansas City bathroom remodeling project, you can save. Keeping your existing bathroom mirror is another way to have funds left over to splurge on a nice garden tub or new shower.

It’s a simple thing for one of our carpenters to frame a mirror, so you won’t have trouble getting it done right. You can have the mirror etched as well, or you can get a kit from the craft store and do that part yourself.

Light Fixtures Can Be Revamped

Depending on how old your light fixtures are, you may want to keep them instead of replacing them during your Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling, especially if you can revamp them into a new look. The finish can be re-painted to bring in a more contemporary look no matter if the light fixtures are made of metal, aluminum, plastic or wood. Plus, texture paints are available to give a unique style that will make them look completely different. If you must replace your light fixtures, try finding some for sale by other homeowners who are selling theirs. You can really find some great lighting if you look around.

Restore Your Vanity & Cabinetry

Instead of having tearing out and replacing the vanity and cabinetry during Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling, you can do a lot with the ones you already have, plus you’ll have the extra money to put in some shelving where you need it. There’s lots of space for shelving around your bathroom, and if you’re handy at all, you can do it yourself. Your cabinetry can be repainted to give them an updated look. You can get paint that resembles molten metals for an updated look or you can stick with more traditional wood looks with paints and tools that help you make the paint look like real wood. Remodeling Contractors like ours here at Shawnee Mission Builders can reface your cabinetry instead of replacing it.
