Your next home improvement project: utility or laundry room

Here is part two of our blog regarding how to get the best out of your home improvement project.

If you are renovating or building a laundry/utility room. If you’ve not had chance to read part one you can find it here.


The voice of experience

Getting your plumber to discuss your project plans ensures that you are getting the best advice and support. They have years of experience in adding value to homes through home improvement projects and will have the right skills to help you get it right. Including planning, fitting and testing products and confirming that all fixtures and fittings are doing the job they were designed for.

They can help you to appreciate, in certain circumstances, why you may not be able to have exactly what you want, for example:  why you can’t have a power shower due to your boiler type; but will ensure that you get what you need and that it does the right job, in the right way.


Home Improvement Project Costs

Asking your plumber to help you when planning plan your laundry/utility room layout will not only ensure that you get what you need and make the best use of the space, they will be able to help you reduce the costs.

Their trade discounts can help you keep costs down, whilst giving you great quality. While we can all be tempted with a good deal, or a great discount it can come at a higher cost later on.

Cheaper goods often provide a great cost saving but can often compromise on the quality or the longevity of a product. Which can mean replacing it sooner than expected or even having to buy an extra part (making it more expensive in the long run) in order to use it.

So, when it comes to purchasing your goods, we would always say Caveat Emptor (let the buyer beware), and always ask the advice of your plumber first before you spend any money out.


Putting it all together

There is a saying measure twice, cut once, which applies very much to any project and particularly to small spaces, where the room for error is very small.

When embarking on any kind of home improvement project you need to ensure that everything will fit in properly. Involving your plumber from the beginning of your project will ensure that you take into account all the right measurements. from pipework to additional space for ventilation, electric sockets, etc.

Small spaces might need some creative solutions, which your plumber can help you with. From placing your washing machine and tumble dryer on top of each other to helping you re-purpose old sinks. Your laundry/utility area doesn’t necessarily need masses of space if done correctly.


In summary

Whether you are managing a small space or a large extension, when it comes to home improvement knowing what to consider before you start work will certainly help to ensure that the project is brought in on time and to the right standards.

Your new laundry/utility room should be designed with your needs in mind and these shouldn’t pose a problem if you follow our suggestions.

    We have used Bradley Plumbing for many years within the Sheffield Methodist Circuit and they are very good. They have provided us with gas inspections, installations, callouts, service and repairs on gas, heating and plumbing issues plus bath installations. No job is too small or too big for them. Their response and customer service are excellent and they are great to work with.  I would definitely recommend them.


  • What Our Clients Say

    As a private landlord I always need reliable trades who I can trust to carry out work for me when needed, as I don’t always see the end result of the work it the property already has a tenant in place.

    Since I’ve been using Steve and the team at Bradley Plumbing and Heating, I have never looked back. Weather its just been a Gas Safe check or a full heating system I’ve always been given honest advice on the best way forward. The solution has always been completed on time and within the price or budget given before the work commenced.
