For 2022 there are many new kitchen and bathroom plumbing upgrades that can add value, convenience and efficiency to your home. Here are a few top trends to check out if you plan to upgrade your plumbing in the coming year.
New faucets are an inexpensive way to bring your bathrooms and kitchen up to date. Touch-less faucets with motion sensors can be operated without touching the controls, adding convenience and preventing the spread of germs.
Shower heads are available in a wide range of styles and finishes. A new trend is to install a combination of shower heads rather than a single wall-mount shower head for a spa-like experience. Multiple shower heads can be adjusted to produce a spray that ranges from fine to coarse and a water action that ranges from gentle mist to strong massage.
Top-mount or ceiling-mounted shower heads spray from directly overhead, just like rainfall. Many top-mount shower heads can be installed flush with the ceiling in situations where the ceiling is too low to install a wall-mount head.
To accommodate tall or short bathers, sliding bar shower heads are mounted on a rail system to raise or lower the shower heat to just the right height.
Consider installing low-flow shower heads when possible. They use only around 2.5 gpm while maintaining an effective spray of water.
Installing high efficiency toilets is one of the smartest plumbing upgrades you can make. If your home is older and has its original plumbing fixtures, you can save up to 3.5 gallons of water per flush! Comfort-height toilets are another popular option.
