• Tired of Your Old Bathroom? Consider These Easy Updates!

    An ideal bathroom is functional and aesthetically pleasing. If your bathroom doesn’t fit one of those categories—or either of them—it might be time to consider a remodeling project. A plumber can help you plan your project. He or she can advise you as to whether any of the pipes need to be moved and whether the new fixtures are compatible. 

    Bathroom Fixtures 

    Swapping out your old bathroom faucet for a new one is a quick, easy update that can make a big difference for the look and function of the room. There are lots of options to choose from. Some of the new fixtures offer a waterfall-type flow. You might even consider getting a motion sensor faucet installed, especially if you have young kids who need to be constantly reminded not to leave the water running. Note that if you plan to upgrade more of your bathroom than just the faucet, consider choosing this fixture last. You’ll want to ensure its style blends well with the rest of your new bathroom. 

    Bathtub to Shower Conversion 

    If your old bathroom currently has a fiberglass bathtub, consider updating it with a tiled shower. A sleek, modern glass shower door can replace that impossible-to-clean bathtub curtain. A contractor can remove the fiberglass tub. After that, the plumber may need to move some of the pipes around before your new shower can be installed. 

    Walls 

    A fresh coat of paint can complement your new bathroom fixtures and shower. Look for a high-quality semi-gloss or high-gloss paint that will resist moisture and be easy to keep clean. One of the latest trends in bathroom remodeling is the use of wallpaper. Modern wallpaper offers far more design options than ever, and some types are specifically designed for use in high-condensation areas such as bathrooms. Consider adding wallpaper to one accent wall for visual effect.

  • How to Install Your Bathroom Fixtures

    The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in any house. A plumber in Sacramento can help advise you on how best to install your new bathroom fixtures. Watch this video to find out more about this plumbing project.

    The video discusses the importance of planning your bathroom layout. First, you need to decide where each item of bathroom furniture should be placed. Once the piping has been installed, it will be difficult and costly to make changes to your layout. The presenter emphasizes that it is crucial to plan for your drainage, water, and venting. The video shows the pipes which vent sewage gas out through the roof. In a top floor bathroom, it is important to install these vents before finishing construction of the roof. Finally, the presenter reminds us that the pipes and electricity cables need to be in place before the walls are insulated.
