With summer just around the corner, many homeowners will be taking vacation time, and tackling renovation projects. An easy and inexpensive way to change the look of a room, particularly the kitchen or bathroom, is to think about replacing your faucets with something more modern.
This can give these high traffic areas a fresh, new look with minimal effort. But, how do you know what the right faucet is when there are so many choices? Toronto plumbers had some tips to share that would make your project a little easier.
“Standing in the faucet aisle can be a very daunting task, especially when you don’t know what you’re looking for,” said Jane Chadwick of Pfister Faucets. It’s also important to have new plumbing fixtures installed correctly by a qualified Toronto plumbing professional.
Here’s a few ideas from Toronto plumbers:
Be sure to choose something that not only compliments your personality, but also suits your home décor. Faucets styles from traditional to contemporary and everything in between are readily available today at most major home improvement retailers. The new Selia Collection at Pfister combines traditional and contemporary styling, creating a versatile design that complements a wide array of home décor.
The finish should fit your décor, but should also complement the style of faucet. For example, if deciding on a traditional faucet, one may choose a warmer finish such as tuscan bronze. If contemporary is more your speed, a cooler finish such as polished chrome may be more of a fit.
Make certain that your new faucet has the functionality that you desire. Kitchen faucets offer different options when it comes to pull-out spray heads, spray & stream functions, and pause options. Your plumbing may need to be upgraded by a professional Toronto plumber for best functionality of your new faucets.
Nothing is worse than picking out a faucet you love only to realize it won’t fit the sink you have. Keep in mind the configuration of your sink when making a choice. For example, how many holes do you need? You can find a qualified Toronto plumber through our easy to use directory to ensure your installation is done correctly.
With the cost of water continuously on the rise, another consideration is to choose a faucet that can conserve water. You can save money and benefit the environment at the same time. Ask your Toronto plumber for any particular brands of faucets they may find work best in conserving water.
