16. Splurge on High Quality Plumbing Fixtures
If you plan to remodel your bathroom, it may be a good idea to splurge on high quality plumbing fixtures. When you go to Home Depot, there will be plenty of options to choose from on clearance. But when you buy something that’s too cheap, they could break after years of use. In the best case scenario, you need to buy a new fixture in order to fix the issue. But in the worse case scenario, you’ll end up with flooding in the bathroom, and paying for a plumber.
Things like a shower head also make a huge difference in your day, whether you realize it or not. I went most of my life using a very cheap shower head. But the moment we switched over to a rainfall shower, the difference was so huge, it was incredible. The water pressure was better, it dispersed more water, and the showering experience was amazing. We spent around $50 for that shower head, verses $20 for the other. Financially, there isn’t that big of a difference, but it truly made the experience far better.
