If you’re wanting to give your bathroom the facelift it needs, try this simple fix and switch the hardware.
Bathrooms add a lot of value to a home. Plus, people spend a lot of time in there too. One-way easy way to get closer to your dream bathroom is as simple as the hardware. No matter if you want to change the pulls on the cabinets or the faucet and shower-head, these switches will not go unnoticed.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Knobs and Pulls
- Channel-locking Pliers
- Basin Wrench
- Plumber’s Putty
- Adjustable Wrench
- Flexible Supply Lines
- Tape Measure
First, you’ll need to pick out what finish you want before starting anything. Shower-heads and faucets are easy to find at local home improvement stores. Then, you can start tackling your project.
For each DIY, you simply need to do the following steps.
First, remove the existing faucet or shower-head. You should shut off the water supply while doing this step. For the faucet, you’ll want to disconnect the supply lines and take out the faucet. The shower-head is simpler.
Next, install the hardware. You’ll need plumber’s putty to help seal in any water. Then you’ll have to tighten it all up. The directions in whatever hardware you purchase will be able to go more in depth with what you need to do. Make sure to check out tutorials for shower-head and faucet installations.
After it’s installed, check for leaks. When it’s good to go, you can use your bathroom like you did before.
Your family will love washing their hands with the new style too!
The other quick hardware fix is with your cabinets. You can completely change the look of your bathroom with new hardware and a screwdriver.
Match the finish of your pulls with your new faucet and shower-head or do something else that catches your eye. Either way, you’ll be able to achieve making a big difference.
