Whether you are hoping to renovate your current house or build your new home, it is likely that you will be picking plumbing fixtures in the near future. And with that comes a very important question: where can I save, and where should I splurge on plumbing? It is important to remember that function is the top priority when it comes down to your plumbing features. Make sure to buy through a plumbing supplier like B&D Plumbing. Read on to learn about the areas of your home you should save and splurge on for plumbing features.
Plumbing Fixtures: Areas to Splurge
There are a couple of areas in your house where you will want to splurge on a bit. Consider going “all-out” in your home’s kitchen, master bathroom, powder room, and bar area if you have one. These are all spots in your home that get the most use and also have the most visitor traffic. Higher-end features in these spots will get the most daily use and appreciation from you, your family, friends, and guests.
Plumbing Fixtures: Areas to Save
It is highly recommended to save on plumbing fixtures in secondary bathrooms and laundry and utility rooms. There are so many different cost-effective options these days that will help fit your style, function and will not break your budget. For example, some homeowners usually opt for a more economical overmount sink as opposed to your usual overmount, integrated, vessel, or pedestal sink in their home’s secondary bathrooms. Likewise, they might save by selecting a counter-mounted faucet in order to help splurge on a sleek wall-mounted sink faucet within their master bathroom. Drop-in tubs or showers might be selected for secondary bathrooms in order to allow for a soaker tub or dream tiled shower in your master bathroom. As it is with all choices you have in life, you will want to prioritize what is most important to you and make a few concessions on the rest.
When to Pick Plumbing Fixtures
Believe it or not, one other way to save costs is to pick your plumbing fixtures early on in your renovation or home building project. This will allow your builder or plumber to have the suitable rough-in kits or valves on hand when it is time to make necessary framing, plumbing, and placement decisions early on in the plumbing project.
