Updating Your Kitchen? 3 Things You Need A Plumber For

Herbert Franklin

Kitchen renovations can take your food preparation area from drab to dazzling, brightening up your space and adding real value to your home. While you may have your general contractor's number on speed dial, there is a lot you may need to chat about with a professional plumber. Here are a few things you should ask a plumber to help with and why. 

1. Installing That Refrigerator Water Line

If you are upgrading to a refrigerator with a built-in water and icemaker, you might be wondering what will supply that water line. Although many homes come along with a built-in water line behind the area where the refrigerator sits, others need to have that line installed. 

Talk with a plumber about where you want your refrigerator, and talk with them about putting in the water line right behind the area. When they install it, make sure they know that you only need cold water, as refrigerators don't usually dispense both hot and cold water. 

2. Moving Your Sink When you need to adjust the layout of your kitchen, you may wonder what you should do regarding the position of your sink. When you are thinking about moving your sink, talk with a plumber about tackling the job. In addition to routing new lines to the area where your sink will end up, professional plumbers can also set up your new kitchen faucet and dishwasher, making it easier for you to start using your new kitchen. When moving your sink, consider upgrading the size of your space to give you more room to store and wash dishes. 

3. Putting In A Wet Bar If you have always wanted your own wet bar on the side of your living room, think about talking with a plumber about how to move forward. Talk about where you want the sink, filtered water line, and anything else you need. Think about exactly how much space you need to prepare drinks, where you want your prep areas, and what kind of sink you want in the area. By making the right measurements and thinking carefully about your addition beforehand, you can ensure a smooth, streamlined experience. 

Renovating your kitchen is equal parts exciting and nerve-wracking, which is why it pays to talk with a professional about how to proceed. Only work with an experienced, licensed plumber to answer your questions about making changes to your plumbing components, and don't be shy about asking if they have any suggestions.
