Renovating your bathroom? Do you have a plumbing plan in place to support your renovations? Many homeowners jump into the excitement of renovating without having a proper plan in place. The result: problems with plumbing, leaks, bad smells and a lot more money spent to fix them.
Here are three things to keep in mind with choosing the right plumbing fixtures for your bathroom.
Style and aesthetics
What style are you going for in your bathroom? Modern? Traditional? Industrial? Modern bathroom fixtures are generally square, sleek and shiny. More traditional or industrial style bathrooms have fat, chunky, twist style taps.
Function and Lifestyle
If you’ve got kids, a single tap twist faucet might be a better idea that the traditional two tap. It’s easier to turn on and adjust to the right temperature. Opt for water saving faucets by including an aerator that reduces the volume of water while keeping a steady pressured flow. Bathroom faucets can have aerators that restrict flow to 1.5, 1.2, 1.0, or 0.5 gallons per minute.
Price and pre-existing fixtures
Save yourself time and money by choosing fixtures that match the existing plumbing set up and pipe fittings. Before starting your renovations, work out a budget for how much you can afford to spend. Keep that budget in mind when shopping for new fixtures. The budget can help you make decisions a lot quicker!
