The kitchen is the heart of the home; it needs to be functional, easy to use, and a great place to work and hang out. Over time, a kitchen can lose its appeal, things can start to feel stale, and this is when many people think about a change. But, it isn’t necessary to change the entire kitchen, and in many cases, some plumbing updates can really be a fun addition. In this article, we will look at three cool kitchen plumbing updates that will freshen the space, improve the usability, and reduce your costs.
- Install New Faucets
When you install new plumbing fixtures in your kitchen, it’s a fantastic way to update the space. Modern faucets are easy to install, they look great, and they can use technology to save you some money at the same time. As an example: you could install low flow and/or motion sensor operated faucets to use less water and lower your utility bills. These types of faucets are great for the environment, but you can also save on your energy bills because less heat will be required to heat your kitchen faucet water. Modern faucets are available in a wide variety of styles and finishes, so finding one to suit your kitchen is easy.
- Add a Modern Garbage Disposal Unit
The latest modern garbage disposal units are radically different from the loud churning monsters that we had only a few years ago. A brand new stainless steel unit will have sharper blades that make disposal easier. They are also much quieter in operation, and they can get the job done quickly. When you use a modern garbage disposal unit, the kitchen is a more efficient place to work, and the food and drink odors are eliminated from your sink areas.
- Install a Water Filtration System
We all need access to clean water, and the water supplied to our homes is filtered and disinfected to a very basic level. Many people use water filters in the refrigerators or a refillable pitcher to filter their water, but this only goes so far, and these systems are not easy to use. If you install an under sink water filtration system, you can enjoy better quality drinking water free from pathogens and other contaminants. This water tastes clean and fresh, but there are other advantages when you cook with this standard of water. Many people are amazed at the taste of their beverages and food cooked in high quality filtered water. The true taste of food and drink really shines through, and everything just seems to taste much better. This is known as a point of use filtration system, and adding one to your kitchen will also raise the value of your home. This is a great way to have access to high quality water at your kitchen sink 24/7 for all the family.
