Kitchen Plumbing Basics

Posted on July 14, 2019

Not many people think about their kitchen’s plumbing until something goes wrong. While it can be pricey, it is not recommended that you do the work yourself. People who do DIY work normally do not get the permits necessary, but inexperience will mean you are likely to need 3 months to do the basics for your kitchen remodeling alone.

Here are certain aspects of your kitchen that may need some plumbing work done.

The kitchen island

Not all kitchen remodeling includes having running water on a kitchen island but those who do, must be ready to pay handsomely. Pipes usually run against the wall but a kitchen island will need it to be beneath the floor.

The garbage disposal

This is very easy to include in your kitchen remodeling and it would be in your best interests to do this yourself. You do have the option to hire a plumber for this but you’ll realize how wasteful it is if you see how it’s done.


Dishwashers can also be installed yourself but hiring a plumber might be a better option. These tend to be installed close to the kitchen sink as it makes things easier.

The kitchen sink

This may be the most important part of your plumbing when it comes to kitchen remodeling, the kitchen sink can come with different features like an extendable hose, or a kitchen heater. You may also consider the ever-popular double sink.

A kitchen’s plumbing is an important part of every kitchen remodeling job. The layout of the kitchen will also play an important factor in the plumbing. The plumbing will be much cheaper if everything that required pipes was placed against one wall or if you had a crawlspace between the floors for the island.
