Installing New Plumbing Fixtures in the Bathroom and Kitchen
This is the most often overlooked component to creating your dream bathroom or kitchen. In the most most effective solution to the problem you would simply keep your fixtures where they are because this reduces labor costs for a remodel. However, there is certainly the ability to change where you have your sink, shower, or dishwasher placed when doing a remodel. For this step in the process it’s important to think about your budget vs. your dream. Can you afford the extra labor and time in moving your sink to the other side of the room or will that cause you to miss out on the granite countertops you really want?

There is a surprising amount of people who have no idea what a hidden fixture even is (see our photo to the right)! Hidden fixtures are just that: hidden. Knobs to change temperature or turn water off and on can make a kitchen or bathroom incredibly modern and chic when they’re seemingly nowhere to be found, but especially in the Richmond area, when it comes to plumbing most people opt for a more rustic feel letting those fixtures help speak to the character of the room. Either one of these applications can turn a room from ordinary to beautiful so it’s mostly up to the owners as to which they prefer for their plumbing installation.
