- Choose your flooring wisely
Choosing the right type of flooring that is sustainable and will last you a long time can spare you the cost of replacements. You can never go wrong with concrete Terrazzo flooring due to their indestructible quality. While you are at it, think about getting heating floors, too! These are pretty efficient ways to heat up your bathroom [and toes!].
- Use as much natural light as possible
We can all benefit from more sun and less light bulbs around the house. Opting for natural lighting can also make your bathroom appear brighter and bigger. Imagine the mood the setting sun will give your bathroom, simply breath taking!
If opting for natural lighting is out of the question for you, you can consider switching your light bulbs to LED. Not only are LED light bulbs energy-efficient but can spare you from constant replacements.
- Invest in an efficient toilet
Your toilet uses up as much as 5 gallons of water per flush! That is a lot. Fortunately, technology has paved the way to the creation of more efficient models. You might have to pay more upfront for these babies but the savings are well worth it.
- Choose low flow fixtures all the way
Low flow sinks and showerheads are all the rage these days! These do not use as much water but provide a better user experience by providing just the right amount of pressure.
- Get rid of your bathtub
Getting rid of your bathtub opens more space in your bathroom, making it a more breathable space to get ready in. Your bathtub also consumes a lot of water so opt for a low-flow showerhead instead! Save space and save water at the same time.
Lastly, we suggest you choose greener toiletries and cleaning materials. Going green is a lifestyle choice and not just about aesthetic. Think about the savings you’ll make just by opting for home made cleaners instead of store bought ones!
These are only a few tips to help you make greener choices for your home. Making these changes gives your bathroom a more refined look that will surely have your guests talking!
