Bathroom Remodeling Trends of 2018

For many people, their bathrooms are personal sanctuaries. They want their bathroom to be a place where they can unwind from the stresses of the day. If you’re in the process of a bathroom renovation, then you might already have a few ideas in mind that will help you create the relaxing oasis you’ve always dreamed of. At Barner Murphy, we can help you discover a few of the top bathroom remodeling trends of 2018 to get you started.


1.    Scaled down sizes
Nowadays, bathrooms are much smaller in scope. It used to be that the dream bathroom was inspired by those enormous double bathtubs, extensive marble flooring and decked-out cabinetry. The trend in 2018, however, is toward smaller bathrooms that highlight smaller scale luxuries. When every inch of a compact bathroom is out to good use, this trend has massive benefits. Smaller sink bowls and tinier toilets are all part of this trend. Space-saving walk-in showers are another trend you might find beneficial. Interesting graphics on either the floor or the wall can help give the illusion of a larger space.


2.    High-tech toilets
Many homeowners are following the trend in 2018 by installing high-tech toilets. Some of the features of these toilets include seat warmers, automatic lid openers, adjustable air dryers and built-deodorizers. Wireless music players are another feature of the high-tech toilet. Just open the lid to hear some music and close it to turn it off. High-tech toilets come with several options, so it’s really just up to your imagination. 


3.    Open spaces
Many people renovating bathrooms in 2018 are thinking about expanding their space by downsizing other rooms. If you want to make your bathroom look more spacious and airy, you can think about installing large tile flooring and mirrors. You can also utilize bright painted colors, as well.

Burst Pipe - What to Do? Bucks County Plumbers

    Burst pipes can be an issue any time of the year, but most of the time people deal with them at the end of winter. Most of the time, burst pipes are the result of unheated or uninsulated areas in a home. At Barner Murphy of Bucks County, we can help you handle the inconvenience of burst pipes so that you don’t have to tackle the problem by yourself.


    If you happen to run into an issue with burst pipes, there’s no need to worry. The confident and respected crew at Barner Murphy can help you get the problem handled in no time. If you notice that a pipe has burst, the first step is to turn off the main valve in your home. Most of the time there are two valves in the home and they are located at the water meter. It is a good idea to switch off both valves when you discover the burst pipe.


    It is generally advised to slip a pitcher under the sink faucet to catch some water because you might not have water for the time being. This way, you can catch some water to hold you over until the line is repaired. After you’ve made sure that the valves are shut off, you’ll want to assess the damage and find out where the pipe actually burst. Oftentimes, the pipe will be located in a wall and you’ll see water leaking from the baseboard. You might see it trickling down from the ceiling on the floor, too.


    As a safety measure, you’ll also want to temporarily shut off the electricity. Doing so will allow you to safely navigate the situation without the risk of electric shock. It’s always a good idea to call for emergency plumbing services in this kind of situation. At Barner Murphy, we always work hard to ensure that our customers receive the help that they need, especially during an emergency.
