We at Steve Maul Plumbing know that kitchen remodeling and plumbing accessories are hot topics. With the kitchen being arguably the most used place in the home, it doesn’t make much sense to overlook its function. You may be primarily concerned about enhancements you can use to improve storage and food preparation. However, you shouldn’t forget about the other things you do while you’re in there. You can use some of your everyday kitchen activities to guide you when selecting kitchen plumbing accessories. Check out the following suggestions from our contractors.
Soap and Dish Detergent Dispensers
Think about how everyone washes their hands in the kitchen. Do they use a bar of soap, a bottle of liquid soap or something else? One terrific way you can make good use of the new counter space is to install automated soap dispensers. You can mount them on the wall so they are not occupying space on your counters. You can also reduce how much trash is being thrown away with an automated soap dispenser because there is less packaging for you to worry about.
The same goes for your dish detergent. If you still prefer to wash your dishes by hand, using an automatic liquid dish detergent dispenser can make your life a whole lot easier. Automatic soap dispensers are available in many colors, including stainless steel and can pack a powerful punch to your kitchens new persona.
Many homeowners overlook faucets and fixtures when they are selecting kitchen plumbing accessories. There may be nothing wrong with your current fixtures and faucets. But since you’re updating the rest of your kitchen, it makes perfect sense for you to update your faucet fixtures as well. This is an area where you should take your time. You should research the options and base your decisions on how much enjoyment you’ll get out of their presence and use.
For example, if your kitchen remodeling project is a part of you transforming your home into a smart one, you may want to choose touchless faucets. They are automated and designed to turn on when they detect your hand movements. If you have kids, you may want to avoid high-end fixtures because they may not be able to withstand the amount of wear and tear they’ll sustain. Instead, good options for fixtures that a lot of hands will be touching are one touch and touchless control faucets. You can even use them in your bathroom.
If you do not really spend much time in the kitchen and are more of a host. You may want to consider choosing your kitchen plumbing accessories based on the entertainment factor. To make your sink an interesting focal point instead of a boring component, you should opt for kitchen plumbing accessories and fixtures that increase the wow factor, such as polished or metal, dramatic silhouettes and other high-end options.
Many kitchen plumbing accessories may seem small and inexpensive when compared to other materials. However, if you’re not careful and forget to watch the price tag, you may find yourself staring at a large bill and way over budget. No matter what your remodeling budget and goals are, it is possible for you to get the kitchen plumbing accessories you want without going overboard. Shop around and compare prices. Look for wholesale suppliers who often have lower prices than many home improvement places.
