Kitchen Plumbing Upgrades to Consider

kitchen-plumbingSo, you’re thinking about installing some plumbing upgrades in your kitchen. You certainly have a lot of different options to choose from when it comes to something like that. The kitchen tends to have the highest concentration of plumbing appliances in the average home, next to the bathroom. You don’t even need to do a full renovation to improve your kitchen in some impactful ways. Let’s take a look at some of the options available for improving your daily life in your kitchen.

New Garbage Disposal

If you’ve been using your kitchen without a garbage disposal, well, we’re forced to ask why you’ve waited this long. A garbage disposal can do wonders for your meal preparation, in terms of making it easier to get rid of waste materials. Even if you have an old garbage disposal that you’ve been using for a while, now might be the time to consider replacing it. Those systems don’t last forever, and if your current one is breaking down all the time it will probably serve you better in the long run to install a new one.

Sink Upgrades

How large of a sink you can install in your kitchen is mainly determined by how much space you have around it. You probably don’t want to replace an entire portion of your kitchen counter just for a few more inches of sink space. Still, there are plenty of other ways that you can upgrade your sink. The kind of faucet you use, for example, can have a pretty substantial effect on how you wash dishes, prepare food, etc. Maybe consider installing a hands-free sensor, or one with a hose attachment.

Water Filter

Depending on where you live, the quality of the water coming out of your taps may not be the greatest. You could install a whole-house water filter to deal with the problem, but most people don’t find that necessary. Plenty more decide to install a point-of-use water filtration system, usually in their kitchen sink. With a local water filter taking care of all the water flowing out of your sink faucet, you can use it for drinking or cooking without needing to worry about its quality.

New Gas Lines

Thinking of installing a new gas appliance in your kitchen, like an oven or stove? You might need to have a new gas line laid to make sure the system has access. No gas line, no gas powered appliances, after all. We can take care of all of the necessary gas line installation procedures for you, so that you can start using your appliances sooner. We’ll also make sure everything is done as safely as possible, so you don’t need to worry about sparking a fire next time you preheat your oven.
