3 tips for installing new bathroom plumbing that are sure to help you out.
- Plan your layout carefully. Space is always at a premium in your bathroom and while aesthetics matter, you also need the area to function on a practical level. That means adequate counter space for all of your toiletries, and a toilet and shower/bathtub placed to make the best use of the space. It helps to construct a formal diagram of the available space with your plumber, then prioritize your needs to ensure that the most important aspects of the project are met.
- Think about water lines. Any piece of plumbing in the new bathroom will likely need water lines connected to the remainder of your home’s system. Those lines have got to be placed somewhere. In most cases, they’ll simply be run through the walls, but if you plan for anything unusual, you’ll need to account for how the water will get to and from it.
- Prioritize. You probably have an ideal image of what your new bathroom will look like. You need to balance that image against the hard contours of reality that any project like this presents. As intimated earlier, prioritizing can be an excellent way to fit your project within the parameters of space, money and time set aside for the project. Rank your wishes and needs from most important to least important and plan accordingly. If cuts need to be made, that will allow you to do it as smoothly and painlessly as possible.
