Faucets, shower heads and other types of plumbing can make a major impact on the look of your kitchen or bathroom. Between selecting a style, finish and function, there’s a lot to decide on when it comes to picking out plumbing. Fortunately, the Affordable Companies has assembled a plumbing trends overview to help you make a decision.
First, you will want to decide on the color and style of plumbing you’d like to install. It should complete the look of your kitchen or bathroom: not clash with it. In terms of color, faucets and plumbing are available in a variety of finishes including chrome, nickel, brass and gold. Select a finish and use it to coordinate with other accessories in the room (such as drawer hardware or towel holders).
Let’s take a look at popular plumbing options for each room, beginning with the kitchen. Instead of a standard faucet, you should consider installing a pull-out model. These faucets are attached to a moveable cord so that water streams can be moved and directed whenever needed. The sink isn’t the only place in the kitchen were you may need a faucet. Today, you can run plumbing and water throughout the kitchen in a variety of places. Install a faucet above the stove to fill pans with ease. Or, create a special vegetable peeling cabinet station complete with a garbage disposal.
Now we can give a quick overview of bathroom plumbing options. It’s a good idea to coordinate all of your bathroom faucets with the bathtub and shower faucets for a cohesive design. You’ll also want to consider the functional features of each faucet in your bathroom. A hand shower can be useful for rinsing hair or showering young children. For a relaxing experience, the shower can be equipped with heads that jet water out of the walls or ceiling if you prefer. And if you are concerned about safety, faucets can be equipped with anti-scalding guards so that you don’t have to worry about a family member being burnt by hot water.
Picking out plumbing and faucets can be a lot of fun, especially because you get the opportunity to check out new technologies and innovations. So try not to stress about the abundance of choices. Select pieces that work well for the activities you do most in your home.
