What’s one of the most exciting things you can do to your home? Remodel. It allows you to add your own personal touch to each space, changing things up and making them perfect for the way you live.
The great thing about remodeling in today’s world is if you can dream it, you can do it. If you are the creative type, and want your home to be different from anything you would find in your neighborhood, you will find it with a little patience and research.
While installing new sinks, new toilets, new showers new tubs, new flooring and new colors are important to your overall look and feel, the details come from the plumbing hardware. Plumbing hardware can come in a variety of colors, a variety of styles, with multiple functions, and create any ambiance you desire. Want old fashioned charm? Not a problem. Want sleek and modern? There are many options there too.
There are a many ways to go about finding unique plumbing hardware. While you can find a variety of options at your local big box store, uniqueness won’t be a part of it if you limit your shopping there. They choose consumer grade; something that will please the masses.
To move beyond the norm, you can start by doing a simple Google search. There are many resources out there to help you find the hardware you are looking for.
If Google doesn’t provide you with the right look, you can head out to look through flea markets and antique shops in your local area. While antique plumbing fixtures can add beauty and originality, be sure you understand what each fixture is made from. Many fixtures dating back decades were made from lead, meaning they can be dangerous if installed in your home and connected to a main water supply.
