When planning a kitchen remodeling project, one important thing to consider is the plumbing—after all, you need a steady supply of fresh water to cook and to wash up afterwards. Our team at Carolina Plumbing & Repair has worked on countless kitchen remodels over the years, and we can help you make your project a success. In this article, we will go over a few key things that you should think about in regard to your plumbing before you start the remodeling process.
- Layout- One thing to consider when planning a kitchen remodeling project is the layout. Your kitchen’s layout has a significant impact on its functionality, so it’s important to make sure everything you need is within easy reach. In addition, you should consider where your sink and dishwasher are currently positioned and determine whether you can keep them there or whether they need to be moved.
- Additional Plumbing- In our experience, many kitchen remodeling projects involve installing new plumbing to feed water to additional appliances. For example, if you want to upgrade your refrigerator to a model that has an ice maker, you will need to put in a plumbing line to supply it with water.
- Plumbing Upgrades- A third thing that we encourage you to consider when planning your kitchen remodeling project is whether you want to upgrade your existing plumbing. If your home still has old, iron pipes, it’s wise to have them replaced with modern plumbing options such as PVC to prevent problems and ensure that your system delivers optimal performance.
