Ring in the New Year With Plumbing Fixture Upgrades!
There’s something to be said about starting the New Year right. One great place to start is by upgrading old plumbing fixtures. Not only can some of the upgrades mentioned below save homeowners money in the long run, but they can also increase the aesthetic appeal and value of the home. Read on for the best plumbing fixture upgrades and trends for the New Year!
Kitchen Sink Upgrades
Kitchen sinks have seen a lot of use throughout the years. Whether for food prep or washing dishes, the sink and faucet should function well together for optimal performance and aesthetic pleasure. Some of the most popular sink trends this year are:
- Single-Basin - Single-basin sinks allow for a less cluttered kitchen sink experience. They can easily fit large pots and pans for easy cleaning, helping to keep the water in the sink instead of on the floor. Stainless steel is still the go-to material for these kinds of sinks.
- Granite Composite - Granite composite sinks are less expensive than pure granite, making them a stylish statement for any kitchen. These sinks are durable, easy to clean, and hygienic. They’re also heavy and may require more support than a stainless steel option.
Many homeowners prefer to upgrade their faucets along with their sinks. Others just want to replace the old or leaky faucet with something better. A great option available is a touchless faucet which can help conserve water. They can have many capabilities, including voice control, sensors, and even app control. So no more getting the handle dirty after handling raw meat or sticky foods!
Upgrading plumbing fixtures in the bathroom can mean anything from getting a new low-flow toilet to replacing an entire bathtub or shower. But one of the easiest and cheapest ways to spruce up the bathroom is by upgrading the showerhead. One trend going strong is the use of showerheads with built-in LED lights. These lights can change colors to make showering a more pleasant experience. They can also help save water by switching on a timer to let the user know it’s time to finish up.
Bathroom faucets are another fixture that can be upgraded, and there are many styles to choose from, including center set, single-hole, widespread, and wall-mounted. Centerset and widespread are the two most common, but single-hole faucets are becoming more popular. They have a single handle that controls the water temperature. Wall-mounted faucets are a unique option that only some bathrooms are set up for.
Tips for Easy Installation
When it comes to any plumbing upgrade or remodel, it’s best to hire a professional. While the do-it-yourself method can seem like it will save money, most homeowners aren’t thinking about the time it takes to complete the project. And since these DIY projects almost always take longer than expected, a sunk-cost fallacy comes into play, which takes more time and effort.
With a professional plumber, homeowners don’t have to worry about the headaches of unexpected problems. They don’t have to worry about a pipe bursting or installing the wrong fixture for the bathroom. Professionals will make quick work of the plumbing upgrades so the whole home can enjoy them quickly!
