3 Considerations to Upgrade Your Bathroom

Friday, July 18th, 2014 at 12:46 pm

The bathroom isn’t like the living room, kitchen, dining room, or even bedrooms: it’s a room that functions independently from the social areas of your house. But that doesn’t mean you should neglect it when it comes to remodeling. As the first room to greet you in the morning and the last one to see you before you go to bed, a bathroom that feels tired and drab will likewise make you feel tired and drab.

You can engage the professional plumbers and remodelers at Brooks Plumbing for complete bathroom remodeling in Olympia, WA. However, if you are only looking for a few upgrades at a time, we have a couple ideas for you to consider:

1. Replace your old sink with a stylish new model

There is a dazzling variety of sinks available for an upgrade. If you have a standard drop-in or under-mount sink built into a cabinet, you can completely change the appearance a feel of your bathroom with a different design, such as a wall mount or corner mount sink, pedestal sink, or the popular and eye-catching vessel sink. Each of these sink designs have advantages and disadvantages: some allow for greater space in the bathroom, but lack storage. Balance out the various factors of appearance, storage, and space to find a new sink that will bring the right touch to upgrade the look of your bathroom.

2. Low-flow fixtures

If you are concerned with water conservation and saving money on your bills, consider having a plumber install low-flow fixtures, such as a low-flow toilet, faucets, and/or showerheads in your bathroom. EPA-approved WaterSense low-flow faucets can reduce water flow by 30% or more without a noticeable drop in performance. Because of the enormous amount of water used in a master bathroom, reducing water use here even by a third will result in a large reduction in your water bills. If you save 700 gallons of water a year (the average for a family using EPA-approved faucets), that’s the equivalent of 40 showers. You’ll also save energy, since your water heater will need to run less.

3. Install a new bathtub

Here’s an excellent way to upgrade the appearance of your bathroom and upgrade your comfort and relaxation as well. Since the tub is the largest item inside a bathroom, replacing it with an attractive new model will give the room the sense of a full remodeling. You can also choose from bathtubs equipped with luxury features like water sets and contoured interiors.
