Perhaps you just found the house of your dreams. You love the neighborhood, school district, and floor plan. You schedule your appointment and everything’s just fine. That is, until you see the kitchen or bathroom. Outdated cabinetry, appliances, and plumbing fixtures put a stigma on what would otherwise be your ideal home. However, you shouldn’t fret. Changing or updating plumbing fixtures in your Frankford, Delaware, home can be a fun, adventurous undertaking and, when you’re done, you can marvel at the results. Here’s a quick guide to get you started.
Traditional vs. Modern
One of the most important factors when choosing plumbing fixtures is discovering your own tastes and style. There’s no set form for this, but most people are either modern or traditionalist. Modernists will love sleek, straight lines on their fixtures, as well as more neutral chrome and brushed nickel finishes. The traditionalist, on the other hand, typically melds with curvy, detailed, and ornate fixtures in a copper or bronze finish. Remember that these are very loose rubrics, but they do give you a way to narrow down your choices.
Blending With Existing Decor
Another important consideration in choosing plumbing fixtures is blending it with the existing decor. If you live in an ultra-modern condo, there’s no sense in installing fixtures that look like they belong in a cottage or farmhouse. For houses that could have several options, think about the surrounding features such as wall colors, counters, cabinetry, and appliances. This will help guide your decision and help to seamlessly incorporate your new fixtures without a total remodel.
Although style and color are two of the biggest determinants of your fixture choice, don’t overlook functionality. The kitchen sink gets used more than any other, so make sure you find one that stands up to the workload. If you have small children, or you always have your hands full, a one-touch or touchless sink faucet is a marvelous choice.
When you add style, shape, and functionality together, you have all the tools you need to find the perfect plumbing fixture. Once you’ve picked one out, it’s time to give Custom Mechanical a call at 877-696-0808 for all your installation needs.
