Sustainable Bathroom Renovations: Eco-Friendly Choices

Water Conservation

Low-Flow Toilets and Showerheads – reduce water consumption by purchasing low-flow toilets, which use less water than standard toilets. In addition to low-flow toilets, water-saving showerheads can save as much as 10% of water. 

Faucet Aerators – placing aerators on faucets control the flow of water and reduces water wastage. By introducing air between the water streams, the volume of water flowing through your faucet can be easily controlled.

Dual Flush Toilets – a dual flush system allows you to use less water or more water as needed. Some dual flush model systems save up to 61% of water. 

Greywater Systems – water from home can be recycled and used for other purposes. Gray water system collects used water from your washing machine, showers, dishwashers, and sinks and filters it so that it can be reused in your toilet or for watering your lawn.

Energy Efficiency

LED Lighting – having different light sources allows you to select which lighting to use for different purposes and helps you control the amount of light in your bathroom at any given time. LED lights are the best choice because they can save up to 80% of energy.

Energy-Efficient Ventilation Fans – a ventilation fan can help you eliminate moisture from your bathroom. Installing fans with humidity sensors is a great idea because they use less electricity and are effective in preventing the growth of mold. 

Programmable Thermostats – set a heating and cooling schedule to help you manage your energy costs.

Solar Water Heaters – heat your water using a renewable energy source – the sun! This can be a huge energy saver if you live in an area that receives plenty of sunlight.

Sustainable Materials

Recycled Glass Tiles – given the damp nature of bathrooms, recycled glass tile is an excellent option because it is naturally stain-resistant and mold-resistant, creates a beautiful finish, and gives your bathroom a modern look.

Recycled Glass Countertops – glass is an eco-friendly material that can make your bathroom more sustainable. Not only are recycled materials often a more economical choice, but the added benefit of being good for the environment also seals the deal.

Bamboo Flooring – bamboo flooring gives you an earth-friendly option that is sustainable and durable.

Salvaged Wood for Cabinetry – this can be a cost-effective way to build a vanity. Use recycled wood from an old dresser or bookcase and repurpose it as a vanity.

Low VOC Paint – VOCs are toxic and terrible for the environment. For a beautiful bathroom finish, use nontoxic paint made from natural ingredients.
