Since you are already planning on remodeling, why not help the environment and yourself by going green with your bathroom remodeling project? You can easily update your bathroom with high-efficiency fixtures that will help the environment and lower your monthly utility bills.
Water Management – Newer fixtures help regulate the flow of water and keep you from wasting so much. You can get these fixtures for faucets, showerheads, toilets, and more.
Water Temperature – Insulate your pipes to keep the water warm from your water heater to the bathroom. Consider a tankless water heater as a green option, heating water only when it is needed.
Fans –Install an automatic moisture sensor fan to control humidity levels.
Tiles – If you need new tiles, consider tiles and grout made from recycled material and organic compounds.
Lighting – Try to include natural light options when possible to lower your electricity needs.
Repurpose – Check secondhand and consignment shops for supplies to save money and keep these items out of a landfill.
Donations – Donate any old fixtures that are still in reusable condition. Local charities can use these items.
