Founded by Ken Euston in 1971, Euston Hardware's old-fashioned legacy continues under the helm of Ken's son. Kevin, who has since grown the shops into three locations, keeps the shelves packed with more than 65,000 items for homes, landscaping, and automobiles. Experts chat with customers to help them to tackle projects from changing a car's oil to painting their house solid green so it can be replaced with a CGI castle. Home-improvement tools, which include items for the kitchen and bath, keep domiciles functioning at their best. The friendly staff can also guide green thumbs to lawn and garden supplies or help them select the right locks and outdoor equipment to keep their tools from escaping and impersonating the local robocop.

With years of experience, Metro Wide's team of insured and bonded technicians help beautify homes and businesses by scrubbing and scouring surfaces ranging from roofs and windows to carpets and gutters. When water begins to pool in gutters clogged with debris, or smudged windows keep you from basking in the glow of a neighbor's Christmas light display, homeowners can call on the team to give their abodes a thorough cleaning. And when a major cleanup is in order—including wind damage or storms—the team can step in and help remove the debris.
Bob Hamilton still remembers the thrill of his 6th birthday, when he unwrapped a box filled with wrenches, saws, and other tools handpicked by his father, a plumber. After years of fixing pipes and stomping koopas at his father's side, Bob fulfilled a childhood dream and founded his own business in 1983.
Two decades later, Bob’s team of uniformed technicians continues to travel throughout the Kansas City area, repairing pipes, heaters, air conditioners, and other mutinous home appliances. Plumbers in tool-stocked trucks roll up to homes, ready to tackle frozen pipes, leaky faucets, and bigger jobs, such as sewer-line replacement and gas-line installation. Technicians also repair and install new heaters and outfit homes with programmable air conditioners. The crew remains on call 24 hours a day in case there are after-hours emergencies or polar bears attempting to hibernate in your newly cooled living room.

The space-making mavens of Life Uncluttered assess customers’ storage needs and create custom closet systems that can hold 50%–70% more than their disorganized predecessors. In an initial meeting, clients communicate their storage needs to an experienced designer, who will then translate these ethereal organization fantasies into a three-dimensional computer model of a new custom closet or five-dimensional model of a new alien hangout. Revamped closet spaces will have dedicated wardrobe real estate for sweaters, long dresses, and suits, and allow parents to stop using children's bedrooms as catchalls for novelty tennis shoe collections. Though costs vary based on the size of each customer’s closet, a basic white closet organization system runs approximately $70 per linear foot, with the average closet costing $2,000–$2,500 depending on the addition of drawers ($300+/drawer section) and additional color choices.
