Update Your Kitchen with Worcester Plumbing Service
The kitchen is the heart of any home. It’s where meals are prepared and memories are made. And when you’re ready to remodel, there’s a lot of considerations to transform your boring or run-down kitchen into the fabulous dream you envision.
Let Worcester Plumber Service help you make that dream a reality. Our skilled technicians are ready to help you with all kinds of projects, including:
Kitchen Remodel Considerations
A kitchen needs to be functional, above all else. A beautiful kitchen is useless if you don’t have the space or arrangements you need to cook and make memories with your loved ones. Be sure to factor in the amount of counter space needed and counter height when choosing a size and depth for your new sink.
Where you place the dishwasher should be determined by whether you are right- or left-handed. You should ideally want to be able to comfortably move dishes from the sink to the dishwasher. Installing the garbage disposal on the same sink side as the dishwasher also increases efficiency.
We can also assist with creating environmentally friendly designs and choosing efficient appliances.
If you have very old plumbing, it may be time to replace the pipes in your kitchen (and in other rooms). Other considerations are installing a filtration system, a water softener, or a new hot water heater (even a tankless model).
Tips for Remodeling Your Kitchen
Keep in mind what sort of look you are going for with your remodel, as that will affect many appliance and fixture choices.
A double sink is the most common for a kitchen, but you may also opt for single or even triple sinks. Farmhouse sinks have a rustic look and are ideal for large pots and pans, while a triple sink has a commercial feel worthy of the gourmet chef.
If you are only doing a partial remodel, remember that installing new flooring around cabinets and existing appliances such as dishwashers can make them difficult, if not impossible, to remove later. Plan ahead and make arrangements to lay flooring underneath the appliances, or be prepared to move some flooring later if your appliances ever need to be removed (such as for servicing or replacements).
Sink and fixture materials play a big role in a kitchen design, too. For sinks, stainless steel is easy to care for and very common, while granite is extra durable and heat resistant. Cast iron, copper, cast acrylic and fireclay are all additional options worth consideration depending on your style and budget.
An addition consideration for your kitchen sink is the number of holes, called tappings. Tappings determine the space you have available for sprayers, hot water dispensers, soap dispensers, and other conveniences. Sinks may have anywhere from one to five tappings.
Take a look at the existing rough-ins for appliances. If you are adding an island with a sink, a dishwasher, a wine cooler, a refrigerator with a cold water dispenser or ice maker, make sure the rough-ins and plumbing are already available. If not, our expert technicians can install them for you.
