Blending a family together is a great way to share the love and companionship that comes when a couple gets married. That's not to say that a blended family does come with some challenges. When moving two families into one home, space is a big consideration. You may have enough rooms, but it's also important to consider other elements of the home. When it comes to the plumbing, it's important to have enough sinks and faucets for everyone to use. A plumber can provide you with professional services to help install extra faucets and water lines. Read through various ideas to see what can be added to your blended family home.
As your family learns to live together, one of the big things everyone needs to consider is meals. Preparing meals, doing dishes, and staying organized can be an issue with just a single sink. A plumber has the ability to expand a water line and install it on a kitchen island in your home. Adding a sink and faucet to an island will make it a lot easier to prepare foods, measure water for recipes, and complete quick tasks if the other sink is being used. The sink is also ideal for everyone washing their hands before a meal is prepared. The sink installation may include a standard basin or additional elements with a trash compactor or sprayer.
Double Vanity Bathroom Sinks
One of the biggest battles in your home may be in the bathrooms. Along with going to the bathroom, people will need sinks to brush teeth, wash up, complete beauty routines, and shave. With a limited amount of sinks a home, it can quickly turn into a big problem. One solution to this is having a plumber run a water line for the installation of a double vanity in one of your bathrooms. Adding the extra sink can make a huge difference on your home and really make time management a lot easier for everyone.
During the nicer months out of the year, it makes things a lot easier when everyone can just head outside to hangout or eat. With a blended family, you may consider installing an outdoor kitchen area. This area can be equipped with a grill, fridge, cooking supplies, and a sink. Adding a water line and sink will make it a lot easier to prepare, serve, and clean up after a cookout. With an outdoor sink, you will not have to run in and out of the kitchen as often. The fresh water is aso great for making summer drinks like lemonade or iced tea.
Laundry Room Sink
When new people are brought into your home, it's amazing how much laundry can quickly pile up. Adding a large sink to a laundry room can elp expand the flow of the laundry and provide a number of additional benefits. The large sink is ideal for hand washing clothes, rinsing off muddy shoes, or working out stains that a washer may not get done properly. The sink can be installed at different levels and with different sizes depending on your needs and the amount of space available in the laundry room. During bad weather, the sink can really help with keeping the rest of the home clean. For example, multiple children may come in after a snow storm with wet and dirty clothes. They can all be thrown into the sink and pre-washed before heading into the washer.
