How To Choose The Right Plumbing Fixtures

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

Revamping or remodeling a kitchen or bathroom could be an exciting process. However, locating all the right plumbing fixtures and faucets may be daunting. It includes your toilets, sinks, and showers. Additionally, you cannot forget paint, floor coverings, and more. You’ll also need to match the fixtures to your renovation style to satisfy your needs while staying within your budget. To discover the correct fixtures for your next makeover, follow some of the suggestions below.

The Three Types Of HomeOwners

There are three groups of homeowners when it comes to designing a bathroom or kitchen. The first group will need to lay out everything to make the perfect color matches, including flooring to countertops. The process could be long and tiring for these homeowners, but from what I have seen, they are hardwired for the job. Then others seem to put things together rather quickly just to get through the process. Finally, the last group will hire a design group to put it together for them. Whatever personality group you fall into, you’ll need to follow some basic steps in the process, but most of all, enjoy the journey.  

Examine Your Family’s Need For Plumbing Fixtures and Faucets

 Evaluate your family’s lifestyle before you start the process. For example: Does your family entertain by throwing parties that require lots of food and drink? What is the size of your family? Your ethnicity could significantly affect how your bathroom or kitchen gets designed. You may want to consider designing your bathroom or kitchen around your family’s culture. For instance, some families bake more, while others would prefer fried food. Some cultures prefer a bidet in their bathrooms, while others prefer using toilet paper. Whatever the case, set your budget and make a detailed plan around your family’s needs.

Make Conservation Part of Your Newly Designed Kitchen Or Bathroom

Once your plan is in place, the first step is to research what faucets and fixtures you’ll be adding to your bathroom and kitchen.  Investigating the numerous aspects of assorted plumbing fixtures and faucets will assist you in designing your ideal bathroom or kitchen. In addition, plan on making your new addition one that will reflect water and energy conservation. Toilets should be 1.6 gallons per flush (GPF) and showerheads 2.5 gallons per minute (GPM). You can even find faucets, toilets, and showerheads that exceed thoughts numbers. It would be best if you took the time to investigate when shopping for your ideal fittings.

A Budget Is Critical But Add A Little Extra For Possible Upgrades 🙂

The next stage is making your plumbing makeover faucets and fixtures fit your budget.  Only after you’ve engaged in the necessary research will you be able to establish the budget for the desired fixtures and faucets.  After doing your homework, you’ll understand the highs and lows of the various fixtures you desire. They can cost less than fifty dollars for a quality bathroom faucet, while others could cost hundreds. Most homeowners don’t realize the vast selection of new faucets and fixtures available. The latest technologies include smart faucets and toilets. They also come with voice-activated commands and touch control. It’s a good idea to add a little more to the budget just in case you want to upgrade.

You Should Have A Basic Understanding Of What You Want Before Getting Starting

Understanding the design style you want for your makeover is critical before choosing design colors. Take your time and dream a little; for example, do you want a kitchen that’s sleek, traditional, contemporary, cottage charm, or Mediterranean. Do you want a chrome, nickel, or black matte finish? The choices are endless.  You should have a good concept of what you want after conducting your search on plumbing fixtures.  Consult an expert from your home store or design center if you’re still unsure about the design and colors to use.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
