A sustainable bathroom is an eco-friendly bathroom, and you can enjoy savings in the long-term if you have one. Going green doesn’t require major expenses or a complicated design. You just need to invest in new ideas to make your bathroom look classy but eco-friendly.
Are you thinking of redesigning your bathroom? In this post, shower replacement contractor Impact Home Solutions shares how you can achieve one.
Most water consumption in the home comes from the bathroom. A full bath uses 70 gallons of water, but a five-minute shower takes only 10 to 25 gallons. Use the dual-flush design to save up to 50% more water compared to standard toilet waste systems. We also have shower replacement faucets for better efficiency and comfort. Get a slow-flow type faucet from our faucet options if you want to save water.
Use High-Efficiency Toilets
Low-flush toilets count as eco-friendly. They are highly efficient because they use only a fraction of the water of the full-flush toilet.
Utilize the Natural Materials
Use metal, porcelain and recycled glass if you want to achieve a modern-chic and eco-friendly style.
Be Creative Using the Lights
Natural lighting and creative decor are the best designs in the bathroom. Make use of the task lighting to brighten up the room. To add light without sacrificing practicality, use the back-lit mirror or under-cabinet lighting. You can also install LED lights. They are energy-efficient and last up to 40 times longer than incandescent light bulbs. LED bulbs may be expensive but you will save on electricity in the long run.
Keep Fresh Air
Bathrooms need proper ventilation. Install an energy-efficient ventilation fan to keep mold and mildew from growing. Place houseplants that keeps the air clean in your bathroom to add some green elements.
