With February 14th around the corner, everyone is looking for that romantic gift that will have their loved one gushing to their co-workers when they stroll into work the next day. Flower shops are gearing up for increased business, Hallmark is prepped for an increase in card sales, and enough chocolate will be sold to give the entire world a sugar rush.
But gifts like these feel a little been-there-done-that, don’t they?
When brainstorming creative ideas this Valentine’s Day, perhaps you’d like to “break the mold” and do something unique? If so, you might consider paying a singing telegram to show up at your loved one’s place of business, book a day at the local spa, or even call a local artist to commission a one-of-a-kind painting.
But would you ever consider calling… your plumber?!?
Before you laugh us off and call us crazy, consider these three plumbing upgrades that are sure to make your special someone’s jaw hit the floor when they realize how much you love and care for them!
A romantic bathroom renovation is a perfect way to show your loved one you care. Imagine relaxing in a luxurious soaker tub or enjoying a romantic shower under a beautiful rain shower head. Sure, you could give your loved one a gift card to the local spa, but after an invigorating steam shower and pampering session at your very own upgraded sink and faucet, they’ll never want to leave the comfort of your home again! Perhaps even consider an extravagant purchase like an integrated bidet toilet to really take your remodel to the next level. These bathroom upgrades can not only improve the look and feel of your bathroom but also add value to your home. (Shh… we won’t tell you had ulterior motives!)
If your significant other thinks they’re the next Gordon Ramsey or Rachel Ray, you know they love to spend their time in the kitchen, dreaming up their next culinary masterpiece. While their cooking skills may be top-notch, the truth is, for most of us, our kitchens are anything but. But that doesn’t have to be the case. You might be surprised how a few plumbing upgrades can improve the look and functionality of this space!
Start with a faucet replacement, adding elegance, style, or the latest and greatest features. Touch-activation or pull-down sprayers may be just what they’re looking for, or consider a dedicated pot filler to make life easier and fill those pots 2-4 times faster than the regular faucet! Don’t stop there because we haven’t even considered all the options for sink upgrades. Butler, Belfast, and farmhouse sinks are all the rage, but a simple upgrade from a single to a double-bowl sink will immediately make life in the kitchen exponentially more enjoyable.
When considering thoughtful gifts for your valentine, don’t forget the plumbing outside your home. A fountain may be just what you need to turn your outdoor space into a nature refuge. Outdoor fountains can be a beautiful and romantic addition to any backyard or garden. The soothing sound of trickling water creates a peaceful ambiance perfect for intimate moments with your loved one. If fountains aren’t your thing and practical is what you’re going for, your special someone with a green thumb would certainly be tickled pink by a dedicated water supply by the flowerbed or garden irrigation system. Water treatment upgrades in this area don’t need to be elaborate, as a new outdoor faucet closer to the garden is all it takes to save time messing with cumbersome hoses or watering cans this spring!
