Top 7 Plumbing Upgrades You Can Make To Improve Your Home


Want to add value to your home? The plumbing may not be at the top of your renovation list but plumbing upgrades can actually do wonders for increasing the value of a home as well as make it a more functional and comfortable place to live in. We’ve put together the top 7 installations and repairs you can do to skyrocket your house value and turn it into a liveable oasis that anyone would love to call home.

Upgrade All Off The Fixtures

Out with the old, in with the new. The easiest way to upgrade the plumbing is to swap out all of your old plumbing fixtures, such as sink faucets and showerheads, and replace them with shiny new ones. Give your bathroom and the kitchen a makeover by installing modern fixtures with a sleek design. You can coordinate all of the fixtures in the home for a unified and cohesive look.

Install A Dishwasher

A dishwasher uses less water than washing by hand and is a huge selling point for many buyers. They are a must-have appliance in any modern home.

Add An Extra Toilet

This is a sure-fire way to increase the value of your home. Use the extra toilet for guests or have it as a second toilet for the family. If space is an issue, consider turning a closet into a toilet.

Put In A Filtration System

A filtration system filters out rust, dirt and impurities from drinking water so that you can stop buying bottled water and scrubbing hard water build-up off shower doors and faucets. It’s an impressive upgrade to any potential buyer. 

Install A Utility Sink In The Garage

For those who spend a lot of time gardening or working in the garage, having a sink close by is a huge advantage. Easily clean the dogs before letting them inside, wash dirty hands after planting or soak the laundry by installing a utility sink in the garage. 

Go Green With a Rainwater Tank

As the world becomes more conscious of adopting eco-friendly ways to live, it’s a great time to start seeing how you can apply the concept of going green to the home. Installing a rainwater tank is one way. They come in all shapes and sizes and let you use leftover rainwater for laundry and gardening so you can save water and money.

Upgrade The Drainage Pipes

This is a costly but worthwhile investment to make to raise the value of your home. Old plumbing can cause headaches for new owners with leaks and clogged pipes. Consult a licensed plumber to assess what needs to be done.
