3 Basic Considerations of Bathroom Remodeling

Friday, April 4th, 2014 at 11:43 pm

We often give little thought to how much use our bathroom receives through the day. But after you have a full remodel done, you’ll understand how central it is—and how much better it is thanks to the work of professional remodelers. A complete bathroom remodeling job is an excellent way to enhance your life.

A bathroom remodel doesn’t have to occur just on the surface, with new cabinets, faucets, wallpapers, and window frames. With the right plumbers working on the remodel, you can re-vamp the basic way that the room functions so you’ll have fewer future repairs and lower water bills. Here are 3 basic ideas for remodeling your bathroom that you might overlook.

Our specialists in bathroom remodeling in Olympia, WA at Brooks Plumbing can help you with these upgrades and many more. Contact us today to start designing your ideal new bathroom.

  1. Replace your pipes: During a bathroom remodel, the construction work exposes most of the plumbing. This provides an excellent opportunity to replace aging or outdated pipes, such as galvanized steel pipes that may have started to corrode. The remodelers can also put in flexible and easy-flow plastic CPVC piping, which will permit more creative re-design concepts that won’t have to work around fixed rigid pipes.
  2. Install a low-flow toilet: Standard toilets consume a large amount of water with each flush. Your standard toilet probably uses between 4 to 7 gallons of water each time you pull the handle. But if you have a low-flow toilet put in during a remodel, you can reduce water waste a tremendous amount: current low-flow models consume around 1.6 gallons of water per flush. Factored over a year, or even a month, that translates into enormous savings in water use.
  3. Upgrade your tub: The largest new installation you can make in a bathroom is a new bathtub/shower, so you’ll feel tempted to leave your current one in. But this is a good chance to upgrade both the look of your bathroom and the quality of your time in the tub. Contoured tubs, whirlpool tubs, water jet tubs, or even a retro-free standing tub are all possibilities for your remodel that may fit your vision for a new bathroom.
