Are Matching Trim Kits Available?
With so many plumbing terms and options, it’s easy for homeowners to get overwhelmed. Doing a DIY bathroom project is a great way to get a new look and improved functionality, but everything goes a lot more smoothly when the right parts are ordered. Bathroom trim kits allow homeowners to ensure they’re getting matching plumbing hardware, such as valves, and the taps and faucets needed to use them.
Shower Trim Kits
Shower trim kits are popular because they include all or most of what’s needed to finish a shower. Even homeowners new to plumbing and bathroom projects can easily assemble these kits with a few hand tools. Valve trim kits include diverters and other necessary valves, while decorative trim kits are just the handles and escutcheons, or decorative plates. These kits work equally well to complete a whole new shower installation or just to update an existing stall.
Toilet Trim Kits
Since a toilet also needs water lines and a stop valve for complete control, toilet trim kits are also popular. Each kit includes a matching set of supply line, stop valve, and flange piece to cover up the connection. Just add the right toilet and a wax seal, and the installation process should go smoothly. Without a stop valve, the toilet installation can cause flooding if it clogs, but with the stop valve in place, it’s easy to cut off the water supply at any time.
Other Types of Plumbing Trim Kits
Every part of the bathroom in need of plumbing tends to have its own matching trim kit. For example, bathroom sink trim kits are also widely available to simplify the process of finishing in a new vanity or console sink. These sets include P-traps or bottle traps that are finished to match the rest of the hardware so they’re attractive if installed in a visible location.
Kingston Brass carries plumbing trim kits to fit nearly every bathroom fixture. Don’t settle for mixing and matching possibly incompatible parts when a full kit allows for faster and easier installation.
