Change faucets for easy update

This was meant to be my quick tip for Friday, but there were some technical problems with my email I had to fix before I dashed out of town for a mini vacation. So it’s my quick tip for Monday instead! 🙂

A very effective update for bathrooms or kitchens is to install new faucets. You can get maximum impact for what is usually a pretty simple job.

This sink had easy access and good foundation pipes, so it didn’t take me long to change this faucet and it made the whole bathroom feel updated!

If you plan to do this project, one way to save money is to take your time and keep an eye out for sales, close outs and clearance shelves at the hardware stores, or shop online for the style you want at the best price.

** Important tip: Make sure you understand what you need to know about buying the right replacement. There are different hole configurations on sinks and you need to make sure your new hardware matches the number of holes and the pattern in your particular sink. Kitchen sinks tend to have far more options than bathroom sinks, but if you have any doubt or confusion at all please ask for help before you buy!

*** BEST TIP *** Take a photo with you of your current fixtures to compare.
