Your bathroom is the part of your home where you should always feel safe, clean, and comfortable. But if it’s been a while since your bathroom has been updated, it might not be the sanctuary you deserve. Bathroom remodeling may seem like a hassle, but when you hire City Creek Plumbing in Kaysville, you’ll see how worth it is when to have functioning fixtures, a more eco-friendly toilet, new tiling, and so much more.
Although bathroom remodels have a reputation for being on the pricier side, there is a way that bathroom remodeling can actually save you money. Older toilets installed before the invention of low-flush toilets in the late 1980s use between five and eight gallons of water with every flush. Especially in larger households, this can run up the water bill each month.
Modern water-saving toilets only use an average of 1.6 gallons per flush, making them much more efficient and helping to reduce your water bill from month to month. When you remodel your bathroom with City Creek Plumbing, ask your plumber in Kaysville about installing a low-flush toilet.
Low-flush toilets aren’t the only aspect of modern toilet technology that you can be taking advantage of in your bathroom. If space is one of the reasons you’re remodeling your bathroom, consider having a compact toilet installed to replace your old one. Whether your bathroom has an unusual floor plan, or it’s just too small, a compact toilet can help make the space less crowded. This is an especially good option if knocking down walls to make the space larger is not in your budget.
There are a few things to consider when it comes to replacing your bath and/or shower in a remodel. Bathrooms with only shower stalls and no tubs are becoming increasingly popular. This can be a great bathroom space saver, but you should first be sure that a tub-less bathroom is right for you. If you have children or are planning on having children soon, you may want to have a bath installed so that it’s easier to bathe them. Also, you should think about whether you plan on moving any time soon. Bathrooms with showers but no tubs are usually listed as “three-quarters” baths when you sell your home, rather than “full” baths, which may slightly decrease the value of your home.
On the other hand, however, if you hardly use your bathtub and/or you have elderly people in your household who may struggle to step over a bathtub’s high walls in order to shower, ditching the tub may be the perfect solution. It all depends on your household’s needs.
