Most standard bathtubs have a wall mounted faucet – but if you’re upgrading to a big inset tub like a whirlpool – or especially a freestanding tub – it can be difficult to line up your new fixtures with traditional style hardware.

Major remodels can be prohibitively expensive no matter what room you’re doing them in. When you’re looking to update a whole area, the price and scope of a project can get out of hand pretty quickly.

If you have a decent sized bathroom – and especially if you have more than one guy in your household – it might be worth considering installing a urinal.
