Many Hartford homeowners choose to go with a traditional interior design scheme when they remodel their homes. To get a good picture of this style of décor, think about the classic European style.

Bathroom remodeling can be a huge task even though it is typically the smallest room in the house. There are so many facets to consider such as storage, grooming and bathing. We usually spend a large amount of time gathering information pertaining to the latest trends in interior design.

There are several ways to accomplish savings in these two areas by incorporating greener options in the bathroom remodeling project.

Water Conservation

The toilet is the most frequent culprit of excessive water usage. Installing a low volume toilet or one with a dual flush mechanism can save gallons of water over time. The design of the showerhead can help you save water as well. Nearly 20% of all the water in the home is used by the showerhead. Most showerheads allow water to flow at about 2.5 gallons per minute. This can be switched out with a low-flow head that only uses 1.5 to 2 gallons per minute. This will allow an adequate flow of water, while saving substantially on water usage. Continue reading
