Bathroom renovations can give your home and upscale, modern feel. Spend the money you need to complete changes that appeal to you an increase the value of your home. When you plan out the changes, don’t forget simple plumbing changes that can give this important space a luxurious vibe. Keep reading to learn about enhancements you can make with the help of bluefrog Plumbing + Drain plumbing service.

Rain Shower Head

Rain shower heads provide a cascade of water that covers your whole body. Feel warm and clean immediately as you transition from work to home life or get ready for bed. Relatively inexpensive, a rain shower head will make you feel like you’re getting the most out of your bathroom upgrades. Have the rain shower head installed by our professional plumbing service so we can adjust the water pressure appropriately.

Plumbing Service for Double Sinks

Having more than one sink in a bathroom also brings it up to date. If you have children that share a bathroom or share a bathroom with your spouse, double sinks can streamline the morning routine. You no longer have to fight for a sink if there are two of them. Double sinks also change the look of the bathroom giving them a fashionable, modern appeal.

Update Bathroom Fixtures

Small changes can make a big difference in bathrooms, especially if yours is on the small side. Changing door pulls, light fixtures, and towel racks and adding a paint of coat can make you feel like you’re in a new room. Updating faucets and fixtures can take decades off the appearance of your bathroom. Call our plumbing service if you need ideas or help installing beautiful showerheads and matching faucets for the tub and sink.

Familiarize Yourself with Your Plumbing Situation

It’s easy to forget about plumbing considerations when you set the budget for your bathroom. Our plumbing service can conduct an inspection of your plumbing so that you know what changes are required before beginning the rest of the renovation. There’s no point in remodeling the bathroom and leaving the plumbing untouched.

Do you know where the drainpipes run before and after entering your bathroom? The contractor will need this information to make a detailed plan of your upgrade. Our plumbers can help you understand whether the pipes run through the walls or the floors and whether your water heater can withstand upgraded features such as a second sink or spa jets in the bathtub. If your pipes are old, you may need to upgrade all or some of them. This can add to the budget for your renovation. Therefore, it’s crucial information you need before you start tearing out counters and fixtures.

Changing the Toilet

This is probably the first thing on your list when it comes to a bathroom renovation. Considering the importance to everyday use, you may want to give special consideration to the type of toilet you want installed. You can rely on our professional plumbers to remove the old toilet and install the new one correctly. We suggest upgrading to high-efficiency toilets to save money on your utility bills and to conserve water.

As part of our plumbing service, we can also install customized toilet seat covers that provide comfort and additional functionality. This small touch can add value every time you put your new bathroom to use.

How Old Is Your Water Heater?

Do you have big plans for your bathroom upgrade? Perhaps you want to install multi-head showers or add a spa tub with jets. You probably can’t wait to enjoy these upgrades. All that extra hot water may place a strain on your existing water heater. Call bluefrog Plumbing + Drain for an inspection of your water heater. After all, if your current unit can’t take the strain of the changes, you may not get the most out of your new amenities.

You may also want to consider changing to a tankless water heater that can provide hot water throughout your home more efficiently. To determine whether you need a new water heater to support your plans for your bathroom, our plumbing service can go over your ideas and discuss the impact to your plumbing system.

We also enjoy relationships with major vendors of high-quality water heaters, so we can help you choose the best one for your home.
