At Aussie Home Renovations, we are always looking for ways to deliver the same outstanding service to our customers whilst ensuring that we keep it green as much as possible. So for the eco-friendly renovators out there, keep reading to see our top tips for a greener bathroom renovation:
1. WATER SAVING FIXTURES
With a huge range of water-efficient showerheads and toilets available on the market, it’s easier than ever to find water-saving fixtures that also match the design and style of your bathroom. This type of fixture aims to lessen unnecessary consumption by only ejecting the ideal amount of water for the task at hand. You can also talk to your plumber about a wastewater system. This system takes water from your bathroom and filters it for use around the home!
2. SOLAR LIGHTING
Utilize the power from the sun to keep your bathroom bright and warm in the cooler months. A simple online search for ‘solar lights’ brings up a huge variety of indoor lights and lamps, so you can find the right style to match your bathroom aesthetic. It’s also a great way to cut down your power bill!
3. RECYCLE, RECYCLE, RECYCLE!
This one may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised at just how many people don’t realize how easy it is to find recyclable bathroom products. Choose natural materials like bamboo or wood instead of plastic and turn the natural, earthy colors into a stylish bathroom aesthetic!
4. INDOOR PLANTS
When it comes to modern bathroom design, indoor plants are a must. Not only do they look amazing and give your bathroom a serene, paradise atmosphere, they also make for very efficient natural air purifiers!
