Your Kansas City Closet to Bathroom Remodel Checklist
April 23, 2021at9:30 PM
No matter how much you love your home, you probably have a list of things you wish were different. Not enough bathroom space may be at the top of your list if you have a growing family or frequent guests. An extra half bathroom in your home can ease that early morning rush to get everyone ready for the day. It makes entertaining effortless when your guests don’t have to intrude on your privacy to use the bathroom. For properties where space is at a premium, one unconventional solution is converting a closet with a bathroom remodel for your Kansas City home.
Here are the essential considerations when you want to convert a closet into a bathroom.
Do you have a closet with enough square footage?
Homes that feature a large walk-in closet are prime candidates for a closet-to-bathroom conversion–especially if you don’t need the extra storage but are feeling cramped and hassled sharing a bathroom with everyone living in your home.
It might surprise you what an experienced contractor can do with even limited space. If you have a small hall closet, you’re not out of options. You can break through a wall to expand your new bathroom if you’re willing to sacrifice space in an office or second bedroom.
Where are your electrical and plumbing systems?
A bathroom - no matter the size - needs electricity and plumbing. When deciding between several closets for a conversion, picking one with proximity to your existing systems will make it easier, faster, and more affordable to convert.
Remember, anytime you work on these aspects of your home, you need building permits and inspection. Both these steps ensure the work is done safely and correctly to prevent a catastrophic failure somewhere down the line. When you sell, you’ll need to show that the work followed city code and met local ordinances.
You may need to find non-traditional appliances to fit an unusual space.
Your closet-to-bathroom may be smaller than traditional bathroom spaces–which is okay for when you’re entertaining unexpectedly, and your master bathroom isn’t guest-level clean. But it means that your standard fixtures, like sinks and toilets, may dominate the space.
When you work with a design and construction company, they’ll customize all aspects of the remodel; cabinets, flooring, and fixtures. You won’t end up with an over-crowded space but will have access to their network of suppliers and designers to get the perfect sink and storage for your new bathroom.
Don’t set limitations on what’s possible before speaking with a Kansas City bathroom remodeling expert.
It takes years of experience to see the potential in a property and know what’s possible through good design and skilled construction. An under-utilized closet could become a stylish, contemporary bathroom with natural light, designer fixtures, and gorgeous built-in features. Working with a remodeling expert versus DIY means having a professional resource when you pick the site for your project.
A contractor with years of experience will guide you towards a closet that will have the best outcome. They’ll get the work done faster–and to a higher quality than if you DIY or hire a general handyperson. You’ll increase the value of your property when it comes time to sell while adding convenience to your home.
