Bathroom Remodelers in
Newark, NJ


In Newark, the density of the city and the surrounding areas corresponds to more compact homes where storage is often a precious residential commodity. Of course, in no place is this more evident than the smallest room in the house—the bathroom. Whether a small half bath, hallway guest bath, or adjoining master bathroom, if you haven't remodeled your bathroom lately, there's a good chance you need to do something about your bathroom cabinets. New bathroom cabinets in Newark can be a blessing, but they're also not as cheap as many homeowners would like to think. Getting the most from your cabinetry is imperative to justify the cost. As much as homeowners may suffer from sticker shock, an equally large and positive surprise can be in store when you realize just how dramatic an effect these cabinets can have.

Newark Bathroom Cabinet Design and Bathroom Storage
Increasing your bathroom storage and the overall efficiency of your bathroom area involves a lot more than stuffing the room from floor to ceiling with cabinets. In many bathrooms around the Newark area, you wouldn't be able to open the door, much less use the facilities were this the design of your cabinetry. No, the best plan lies in cleverness and subtlety. When possible, built-in cabinets are the way to go, creating additional storage without taking up any additional space. In general, "going high" with your cabinets is a good idea. Installing a cabinet "space-saver" above your toilet can replace cabinets underneath your sink. A stand alone wall sink may not add more bathroom storage, but it will make your bathroom space feel roomier. If you can't go high, bathroom corners are the next best thing. Be it cabinets, sinks, or a converted shower stall, installing bathroom fixtures and appliances in the corners of the room help ensure you're using every last inch of your bathroom, and using it well.

Newark Bathroom Cabinet Installation and Designers
Being aware of these options is one thing, being able to implement these ideas and gauge their feasibility is quite another. Cabinet installation can involve anything from following the directions of an IKEA manufacturer or hiring a custom cabinet maker to come in and tailor cabinetry for your specific bathroom space and storage needs. Showroom floors always look great, but they don't always translate.

The universal eye belongs to interior designers, who can help you pick out color schemes and patterns, but offer many other valuable services. Older homes also present unique challenges and odd spaces. Experienced interior designers have seen it all and can tell you what will and won't work for your bathroom. You may also be ready to take the plunge and expand your new bathroom cabinets into a full bathroom remodel. Interior designers frequently specialize in one or two areas of the home. Finding an interior designer who can help you with your bathroom cabinets now and with your larger remodeling projects down the road can be a great asset.

Cost of Newark Bathroom Cabinets
While there is a lot of variance in many areas of home improvement, the amount of money you spend on cabinets can range from a couple hundred dollars to several thousand. (Custom kitchen cabinetry can range as high as 25 or 30 grand.) Often, you get what you paid for, but by taking the time to get estimates from multiple contractors—whether they're custom cabinet makers, installation professionals, retail stores, handymen, or interior designers—you get make sure you're getting your money's worth and spectacular cabinets for a reasonable price. Don't expect miracles (many homeowners suffer from sticker shock), but don't get so frustrated you make a poor decision, either. By using our database of contractors and submitting a request, local Newark cabinet professionals will come to you, eliminating much of the hassle of searching for the right person for the job.
