If you’ve been considering upgrading your bathroom or kitchen, you’ll want to be aware of these top plumbing trends. As your NYC plumber, these are the trends we’re seeing in person, as well as being covered in industry media: that means they’ll likely have some staying power. That’s not surprising as most of them are rooted in saving the homeowner money and making their lives less stressful.
Efficiency: If you’re talking to your NYC plumber about having your toilet replaced, don’t be surprised to hear him start talking about gallons per flush (GPF) and efficiency standards. Today’s toilets can deliver top performance while using exponentially less water than previous generations of commodes. That’s good news for the environment and your budget!
Made in the USA: Increasing customer demand for Made in America plumbing fixtures for the kitchen, bathroom, and even outdoors is starting to result in a greater range of these products becoming available. Your NYC plumber can generally source a high quality, Made in the USA fixture in less than a week – streamlining the timeline on both new construction and renovation projects.
Senior Friendly: The Baby Boomer generation is retiring in record numbers. The vast majority of Boomers have reported a desire to age in place – in other words, live out their golden years in their homes, rather than going into senior housing. For this reason, Boomers are proactively seeking senior friendly plumbing fixtures that will make it easier for them to age in place. These include barrier free showers, walk in tubs, comfort height toilets, and more. Your NYC plumber will be happy to go over all of your options with you.
