The usual Mother’s Day gifts often include flowers, dinner or perhaps some crafty handmade memento, but why not change it up? Seattle plumber, Mr. Rooter, recommends a different approach this year. How about upgrading plumbing features around the house to show Mom how much she means to you? Not just maintenance projects that the home needs anyways, but upgrades that make life easier and more enjoyable for her long after the official celebration ends.
Some may say updating basins, faucets and laundries lacks the personal touch that Mother’s Day normally requires. That it may seem a little like handing Mom a new vacuum and feeling proud for how much easier you have made her life. This, however, would be a severe underestimation of the lasting and universal enjoyment a luxurious shower head, or brand new soaking tub can provide.
Here are some suggestions from the experts at Mr. Rooter for plumbing projects that will make Mom happy all year long. Some of these upgrades can be tackled by ambitious D.I.Y homeowners, but the professionals at Mr. Rooter will be happy to help with every step of the planning and installation, utilizing their vast plumbing experience to avoid problems that can ruin the celebration.
Sinks and Faucets
It’s no secret that mothers everywhere spend a fair amount of time at the bathroom sink, so updating faucets and basins can make things easier while adding a pleasurable aesthetic to the room. A nice new basin in the bathroom or kitchen can really help to freshen up areas that see a lot of use. High-arc faucets in the kitchen can make using the sink easier, and the new telescoping sprayheads provide an even and efficient flow.
A new washing machine may seem utilitarian and impersonal, but can also be an underrated gift for Mom. Front loading washing machines are efficient and easier to access while being much gentler on clothes. The efficiency comes from having to heat less water than standard top load models, and will also keep your clothes looking new longer because of the gentle vertical rotation. A front loader may even make laundry so easy that other family members will be more inclined to do it.
If you’re looking to go big for Mother’s Day, how about a new whirlpool or bubble massage air bath? This is the kind of gratitude that Mom truly deserves. Relaxing after a hard day is all she has ever really wanted and a hot soothing bath will do just the trick.
For a more economical way to pamper Mom, a new and efficient shower head may be a good alternative. Multifunction shower heads and handshowers provide instant relaxation with a wide range of spray patterns from gentle spray to vigorous massage. Some of the fancier air-induction systems offer a drenching experience while still conserving more water than older showerheads.
Okay, this may be pushing it, but the resulting pleasure of a new tankless water heater can be the best gift of all. Imagine offering Mom the chance to never run out of hot water while showering. Saving money by heating water as needed has a big effect on the cost of utilities, which in turn can be funneled directly into next year’s gift.
