One thing that can spruce up your bathroom or kitchen in a quick way is by upgrading or replacing your plumbing fixtures. Faucets, shower-heads, levers and knobs bring sparkle and character to a room and a smile to the face. If you want to upgrade your bathroom, but don't have the budget for it, start by replacing your plumbing fixtures and it will feel like a whole new space. Aesthetics aren't the only concern either. A lot of plumbing fixtures are heavy water users, like your toilet or shower-head, so replacing them saves money in the long run and helps you conserve water. The nice thing about replacing your fixtures is it only takes basic mechanical skills to be able to do it, so with the right instruction, you can do it yourself.
