Try These DIY Bathroom Upgrades

Does the bathroom in your Philadelphia home need an update? Maybe you have older fixtures that aren’t working as well as they used to. Maybe you want something more efficient and easier to clean. Joseph Giannone Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning is here to help you with any plumbing project, big or small. But there are plenty of DIY projects you can try on your own to get the bathroom you’ve always wanted. Here are just a few.

Go Low-Flow

Take your DIY to the next level and install modern, low-flow fixtures in your bathroom, upgrading the look and lowering your water bills. Try installing a new showerhead to get started, then move to sink faucets. You can even install a new, high-efficiency toilet with features like self-closing lid and automatic flush. Or you can convert your existing toilet to use less water by installing a pressure assist system.

A New Vanity

The vanity is one of the most visible parts of the bathroom, so you can make a big splash by replacing it. Whether you want more countertop real estate or a smaller footprint, there are plenty of options available at your local home improvement store. Installing your own is labor-intensive, but it’s within the reach of a dedicated DIY’er. You could also give your existing vanity a facelift by refinishing or painting it and replacing drawer pulls and cabinet door knobs.

Caulk and Grout

Has the caulk and grout in your bathroom seen better days? Is it stained, cracked or just messy? These elements of your bathroom’s look and feel are an easy DIY project that can yield great cosmetic results. Paying attention to caulk and grout can also prevent water damage in your home.
