100 dollar bills

For all you lucky homeowners who have a nice fat tax refund coming, now is an excellent time to replace those leaky, outdated bath faucets!

It’s an upgrade that doesn’t cost a bundle, yet will make a big difference in the appearance of your bathroom and the pleasure you get from it. While you are selecting the new faucet (be sure it matches the holes in the existing sink), why not get matching accessories? Toilet paper holder, towel bars, curtain rod if you have one, and a couple of grab bars for the shower.

You will probably want a professional to install the grab bars – they have to be attached securely, and that means some sturdy support inside the wall.

Now you know what bath faucets and tax refunds have in common.
