The Benefits of Updating Your Kitchen and Bathroom Faucets

Last updated 4 years ago

Kitchen and bathroom faucets are the visible parts of your home’s plumbing. They are also some of the hardest-working fixtures in a home, used every time you want to turn the water on or off. Updating older faucets can save you money and instantaneously improve the look of any room.

Less Wasted Water
A leaky faucet can waste almost 55 gallons of water each year. Aging faucets may require multiple repairs or need to be retrofitted with new parts in order to remain functional. Upgrading old or broken fixtures will automatically eliminate these costly plumbing leaks, preventing wasted water from adding to your bill. Furthermore, there are many newer low-flow faucets that use up to 50% less water than older models. Less water used means a lower water bill, adding up to big savings in the long run.

Improved Aesthetics
Have you thought about how your plumbing affects the look of your kitchen or bathroom? A plain faucet might not stand out, but it doesn’t add anything to the room’s design either. Maybe you’ve changed your style after your last faucet purchase. There is a wide variety of faucet finishes and styles available at prices to suit any budget. You can choose a faucet that complements the rest of your room’s décor to drastically improve its look and feel.

Extra Features
With the advancement of technology has come plumbing fixtures that offer more convenience than ever. A pullout faucet includes a flexible hose and sprayer attachment built right into the fixture. This makes it much easier to wash large dishes or hard-to-reach places in the shower. Touch- or motion-activated faucets allow you to turn the water on and off without getting your faucet dirty.
