Whether you’re looking to update the look of your bathroom or add some function to your kitchen, there are plenty of projects to choose from. Here are a few ideas to help you get started:
Replace faucet handles:
This is a quick and easy project that can make a big difference in the look of your kitchen or bathroom. If your faucet handles are looking a bit worn or outdated, consider replacing them with something more modern. Danco has a wide range of plumbing replacement parts to choose from, including a stylish Cross-Arm Handle! Available in a multitude of sleek finishes, including Brushed Nickel, Chrome, and White to match an array of aesthetics.
Replace bathtub and shower faucet trim:
If your bathroom is in need of a refresh, consider replacing the shower and bathtub faucet trim!. This relatively simple project can give your bathroom a fresh, updated look. Upgrade your faucet with a Danco Trim Kit for Moen. The trim finish comes in Brushed Nickel, Chrome, Oil Rubbed Bronze, and Matte Black.
Get creative with spring crafts:
If you’re feeling crafty, there are plenty of spring-themed projects to try. The options are endless, from painted flower pots to wreaths made of branches and flowers. Get inspired by some of the ideas on Pinterest, and let your creativity run wild. While your crafting, keep the clean-up to the minimum by laying out the Protect.it Project Pads available on Amazon around your craft station. These clean-up pads will prevent any mess and damage to your counters, sinks, and tubs while you work away!
Garbage disposal brush:
If your kitchen contains a garbage disposal system, you must care for them properly to preserve the system’s health and longevity and prevent a costly repair bill. One simple way to keep your disposal in working order is to regularly deep clean the system. Using a Disposal Cleaning Brush to scrub away food and waste prevents harmful build-up and bad odor from occurring in your disposal.
Investing in disposal protection also reduces the risk of damage and clogs. The Disposal Genie provides premium protection from silverware, food, and other types of waste from slipping into the drain and harming your disposal system or creating a clog. Its black finish also blends seamlessly with sink fixtures.

Toilet Repair Projects
If you’re looking to fix a leaking or slow-flow toilet, a simple way to fix these minor yet annoying plumbing problems is to upgrade to a high-performing water-saving toilet system.

Say goodbye to leaking flappers and slow flushes. This repair kit eliminates common leaky toilet problems due to a worn-out flapper, handle, or faulty flapper chain. Also, the Total Repair Dual Flush Valve quickly transforms a standard toilet into a two-button, dual-flush toilet with two flush settings: quick flush and full flush.
