It’s officially 2022 and a new year is always a great time to start upgrading certain areas of your home. Whether you’re looking to add a fresh coat of paint to the living room, put down some new carpet, or even start working on a complete kitchen remodel, the new year is the perfect time to start investing in your home to make it the space you’ve always dreamed of. An area of your home that might often be overlooked is your plumbing system. And believe us, we get it. A plumbing system is typically something that every household just expects to work properly at all times, but it still deserves some TLC every once in a while!
With that being said, why not figure out which plumbing fixtures in your home could use some upgrading? Since you rely so heavily on your plumbing, we’re here to share which fixtures are worth splurging on and some areas where you’re better off saving your money.
Where to Splurge
Think about the rooms you use most often or the go-to areas for your guests when you’re hosting a get together or party at your house. These are the areas where it’s totally acceptable to go all out and get down to the nitty gritty of every detail.
Your master bathroom is probably the first room you head to in the morning once you wake up and the last room you’re in before heading to bed each night. You spend a majority of your time in there showering, taking baths, brushing your teeth, doing your skincare routine, and more. So, why not make sure your shower and bathtub give you that spa-like feeling every time you’re in your bathroom? The same goes for your bathroom sink and faucet. Investing in your bathroom will make you feel like you’re truly pampering yourself each day.
Just like your master bathroom, your kitchen is also a highly-used area in your home, especially if your home is the go-to location for dinner parties. Splurging on a high-quality kitchen faucet can make all the difference in your kitchen’s plumbing system. Bell Plumbing offers a variety of faucet options, such as touch activated or low-flow faucets, which can help you reduce your monthly utility bills. Sometimes the upfront splurge is worth it if that means you will be saving money in the long run.
Guest Bathroom/Powder Room
Who doesn’t want to “wow” their guests? Your guest bathroom and powder room are the perfect areas for you to show off your design skills and create a space that guests walk into and say, “Wow, I love this sink!”
Where to Save
We would never recommend choosing “cheap” options when it comes to plumbing fixtures, but there are definitely ways you can express your design skills without completely breaking the bank.
If you have a separate laundry or utility room in your house, there won’t be much foot traffic in this area unless it’s laundry day, which also doesn’t require every member of the household to be in the laundry room at once. Guests will most likely rarely be in this room, so there’s no need to go all out and buy the most expensive plumbing fixtures for this room.
