No doubt, you have been spending a lot more time in your home during the COVID-19 pandemic. One way to make your time inside a lot more enjoyable is by refreshing your bathroom!
A bathroom remodel or refresh or revitalization can involve as little or as much as you want, from a new lavatory faucet and matching showerhead to a complete remodeling project. The experts at Petri Plumbing & Heating, your Brooklyn plumber, are ready to help.
We can show you a selection of single handle or widespread handle faucets that will dress up the look of your sink. Plumbing manufacturers make suites of products with matching showerheads and even matching towel racks and toilet paper roll holders to complete the look. The only limitation to changing your shower is if you need a new shower/bathtub valve installed inside the wall. But once you open up the wall to do that, that’s your opportunity for new tile or a tub surround.
Of course, wouldn’t a new faucet look so much better mounted on a new sink? Sinks can either drop into your vanity top or pedestal sinks stand alone.
There are more toilets available than you can imagine. There are standard height toilets and “comfort height” toilets that are about three inches higher. There are two-piece toilets and one-piece toilets, gravity flush toilets and pressure-assisted toilets. And you can expect some big water savings with the newest toilets. Base model toilets today flush 1.6 gallons and many use 1.2 or 1.0, and there’s even one toilet model that uses only 0.8 gallons per flush.
If you think you’d want to stay in your Brooklyn home into your old age, your bathroom remodeling can incorporate aging-in-place features that make the bathroom safer and easier to use. You might consider widening the bathroom door to 36 inches so that you can fit a walker or wheelchair through the doorway. Sinks and faucets can be installed so that they are accessible to a person who is seated or in a wheelchair. Instead of a standard tub, you can opt for a walk-in bath or you could consider a low threshold walk-in or wheel-in shower that’s wheelchair accessible. We’ll explain all of your options.
