If you have decided that it's time to remodel your kitchen, one of the things you need to think about is reaching out to a plumber to help you complete the project. A kitchen remodel is the perfect time to incorporate some of the plumbing features that you've wanted for making your life easier in the kitchen. Before you finalize your remodeling plans, here are a few things that you should discuss with a plumbing service to see if you can incorporate them.
Whether you're into canning and preserving or you make a lot of pasta, a pot-filler faucet over your stove can be a real convenience. These faucets are long fixtures that you can fold flat against the wall when you don't need them but then can unfold to reach over your large stock pots on the stove to fill them when needed.
A pot-filler faucet is convenient because it saves you from having to haul the full, heavy pot from the sink to the stove, risking spills the whole way. These faucet fixtures are easy for your plumber to install. Just make sure that you talk with the plumber about the height of the fixture to ensure that you can reach it.
Direct-Plumbed Coffee Pot
If your household drinks a lot of coffee, one of the best investments that you can make is in a direct-plumbed coffee pot. These pots are connected directly to your home's water lines as their water source so that you don't have to fill the reservoir every time you make a pot of coffee.
Not only do these coffee pots provide the convenience of not having to fill the reservoir, but they also eliminate many of the issues associated with traditional coffee pots, including residue buildup in the water reservoir that can be difficult to clean and can affect the quality of your coffee.
Refrigerator And Ice Maker Line
Remodeling your kitchen is also the perfect opportunity to upgrade your appliances to get the features that you've always wanted. For example, if you've decided that you want to install a new refrigerator and freezer with a water dispenser and built-in ice maker, you'll have to work with a plumber to ensure that you have a plumbing line accessible where the refrigerator will be installed.
Your plumber will add a line to your home's incoming water infrastructure so that you can connect your new refrigerator and freezer to the plumbing system for the water supply that it needs.
