When is the Right Time to Upgrade Kitchen/Bathroom Appliances

New year, new you, new fixtures… Right?

It’s no secret that over time, things wear and tear. One day you can look up and start to wonder whether your kitchen or bathroom appliances need an upgrade. Since replacing your appliances requires a considerable investment, it’s best to determine whether you’re simply looking for a different look or if you genuinely need an upgrade.

You’ll need to replace your fixtures if…

-You’re constantly having to make repairs. The cost of frequent repairs is likely adding up. At some point, you need to figure out whether it’s better to use the money you’re paying in repairs to purchase replacements.

-Your appliances are not energy-efficient. If your bill is relatively high each month, then upgrading your appliances can help you lower it.

-The enamel on the appliances is damaged. Although the enamel on the bathroom furniture is quite hard, it can still get damaged. This leads to unsightly scratches and dents. These can be repaired, but it’s often better to replace the appliance.

-The plumbing fixtures on the appliances are worn and broken. Over time, plumbing fixtures can get damaged due to overuse, corrosion, or the buildup of sediment. When multiple plumbing fixtures are significantly damaged, it’s time to upgrade

-The appliances no longer meet your needs. If you have a regular bathroom, but you’re getting older and losing mobility, you might need a different type of furniture. Walk-in bathtubs and higher toilets are better suited to the needs of seniors.

-The style of the appliances is outdated. Now, this isn’t a major need to upgrade, but if you have the money, then purchasing newer models with a more modern look can give your kitchen a more visually pleasing appeal.

Once you’ve come to the conclusion of whether replacing your current appliances would be a necessary investment, it’s best to consult with a professional plumber. This way you can be sure to get sound advice on the best options for your kitchen or bathroom. You’ll be glad you did it in the long run, because not only will it increase the value of your property; it will also enhance your enjoyment of your home.
