How to create a comfortable and eco-friendly bathroom.
Bath remodeling and renovations should include reviewing many factors that assist in maintaining a healthy environment for your family. A properly sized fan, preferably one set on a timer that will continue removing the moisture long after the user has left the room, should be based on the cubic square feet of the room. A quiet fan is more likely to be used than a noisy annoying one, so look for an ultra quiet fan. Low flow toilets using 1.2 gpf or dual flush toilets using .8/ 1.6 gpf should be considered for water conservation, as well as low flow shower heads and faucets. Flooring could be selected from natural linseed products, such as Marmoleum or a quality porcelain tile that contains recycled material. These products now are available in great colors and textures to influence your bathroom design. Look at our Fireclay tiles on our site. Also a premium quality grout should be used that is both mold and mildew resistant, such as those available through Laticrete or Mapei. These are a few tips to creating a relaxing eco-friendly bathroom environment.
