It’s easy to update a kids bathroom design. In fact, you can do it with one small change in less than 30 minutes. Ready to see what it is?
We’ve lived in our home for 2 years now and we’re still slowly doing upgrades around the house. Although our colonial home is over 100 years old, it really didn’t need a ton of work when we moved in because the previous owners had done quite a few upgrades already.
That doesn’t mean I haven’t wanted to do any, though. We’ve slowly updated some paint colors, added a closet in during our girls’ bedroom makeover, removed some of the outdated wallpaper, and updated two out of three of the bathrooms in the house. Next on my renovation list is the girls’ bathroom and today I’m going to share with you how we totally updated our kids bathroom design with just one change… that took less than 30 minutes!
Most of the fixtures, including the bathroom faucets in our house, are completely outdated. That’s why I was super happy when Pfister sent us the Breckenridge single control bath faucet at no cost to facilitate this review and our bathroom update. In our two previous bathroom upgrades we’ve chosen bronze faucets so it made sense to keep with that theme throughout the house. I chose the Tuscan Bronze finish for this beautiful, simplistic faucet.
Installation of Pfister sinks is a relatively easy process. We installed one in our previous home so while it’s possible that I would have been able to switch out the faucet myself, I enlisted the help of my husband again for this one.
It took him just under 30 minutes to get the new faucet installed. The instructions were very easy to understand and really there was very little work to install. It took more time to get the old faucet out than it did to get the new one installed. One thing I love about Pfisterfaucets.com is that most of their faucets come with an optional deckplate. Thankfully this faucet did as we didn’t want to replace the 3-hole sink.
There are a few reasons why I feel like the Breckenridge Single Control Bathroom Faucet is a better choice for a kids bathroom design. For one, I love the single control handle. The girls were always turning on both the hot and cold water, never knowing exactly how to get warm water in their old faucet.
This faucet is also meets and/or exceed the EPA’s WaterSense standards, which means that the faucet reduces water consumption by 30% and helps average households save up to $200 in their annual water bill. I would say that this faucet has a much lower output of water flow than their old sink, or other sinks in our home, but I actually love that in a kids bathroom faucet… less mess and less water everywhere! You’ll want to be sure to keep this in mind if you’re looking for a faucet with a stronger water pressure, though.
Lastly the Pforever Seal, which is an advanced ceramic disc valve technology with a never leak guarantee, is a push and seal type drain cover that is easy for little hands to use.
If you’re looking to upgrade a kids bathroom design with one small change, definitely consider upgrading your bathroom faucet. It’s amazing the difference in design that a new faucet can give a room.
