Plumbing and Your Kitchen Remodel

There is no doubt that a kitchen remodel is an exciting time! A new space, customized to your needs and lifestyle is not far away. Before you arrive at the finish line, though, there are a lot of steps to take and hoops to jump through.

A key part of every remodel is taking your plumbing system into consideration. A kitchen relies on a functional and efficient plumbing system, and AWS Plumbing, Heating & Cooling is here to help you achieve that.

How to Plan Your Remodel Around Your Plumbing

Ideally, all of your plumbing would stay in the same location for your remodel. It is more cost-effective, and could cut down on the timeline of the remodeling process. There is a high chance, however, that at least one fixture will need moving. Try to not get frustrated if this is the case! That is why plumbers are here for homeowners and you should involve them in your remodeling.


When you’re in the planning stages of your kitchen remodel, there are a lot of details to remember. Take some time to consider your current location of appliances and discuss with your designer and plumber what your options are for the new kitchen.

Keeping everyone who is involved in-the-loop and informed along the way will ensure a constant flow of communication that will keep the mishaps to a minimum.

Getting it Done!

Once you’ve made it through the planning stages, it’s time to get your plumber in to begin the work. They will re-route your plumbing systems where needed and get everything in its proper place.

Ask Your Plumber

We know a remodel is a stressful process stuffed with so many details to remember. So, we’ve come up with a list of questions for you to ask your plumber before you begin.

  • What permits are required for this remodel?
  • Do you recommend reusing or replacing our appliances?
  • What is your estimated timeline and budget for this project?
  • Should my piping be replaced?
  • Does my home have plumbing vents?
