Remodeling your bathroom means considering a number of elements, including your plumbing. Before you implement the design you desire for your new bathroom setup, you may want to look into these plumbing concerns.
In today’s post, Handyman Connection® of Mason, home of your local home remodeling and maintenance pros, shares some plumbing matters to take into account as you plan to revitalize your bathroom.
1. Deciding on Whether or Not to Relocate Plumbing Fixtures
Relocating plumbing fixtures adds to the total time required to complete your bathroom remodeling project. An example of this would be refitting the pipes when transferring a toilet. It’s both costly and inconvenient, especially to your daily routine. Unless you are eager for this to happen and have enough budget to cover this aspect of the project, skip it entirely and leave your plumbing setup untouched.
2. Choosing Between Exposing or Hiding the Pipelines
Your choice affects the design of your new bathroom rather than its function. On the one hand, exposed plumbing lines, particularly those behind the sink and fixtures, create space and highlight the industrial look. On the other, hidden plumbing lines give the whole space a cleaner and more modern aesthetic. Regardless, talk to one of our bathroom remodeling professionals for this. Take note, however, that once this is done, changing it may cost you.
3. Getting Upgraded Variants of Your Current Plumbing Fixtures
Upgrading your old and dated fixtures with new ones is something you might want to consider in this home improvement project. It is easy to find plumbing appliances that list water usage. Some even have eco-friendly fixtures to help decrease water usage and subsequent utility costs in the long-term. For example, choose a toilet with two flushing options: a weaker and a stronger flush.
