What to put in your “Green” bathroom

If you decide to go about remodeling your bathroom, you might as well do it right. An eco-friendly bathroom will help ensure you are doing good for the environment while getting a look you love. Here are five things you will love to put in your "green" bathroom during a remodel.

Paint, glue, adhesives, etc

The first thing you will do in your bathroom (after ripping everything out, of course), is prepare it baseboard heater covers and the right kind of paint. It is important when choosing what paint glue, etc that you want for your room that you pick stuff that is low-VOC or no-VOC. VOC’s can negatively impact the air quality in your home and even cause health problems. By picking out the right products, you are protecting yourself and those in your home.

The right kind of fan system

Getting a fan in your bathroom that sends the moisture out of the home will protect your bathroom from mold and mildew. But if you really want to save energy, it is a good idea to use a fan that has an automatic timer to turn it off. That way, you can leave the fan on to get rid of the moisture without worrying about forgetting to turn it off and wasting a bunch of extra energy.

Using too much water?

Though much of your water usage depends more on habits than it does the products you own, a good way to save on water is to install low-flow faucets and low-flush toilets. While you may not be ready quite yet to cut your shower time in half, you might be able to get away with putting in these products that will help you save a little in the bathroom.

Materials

One of the hardest places in your home to go green is in the bathroom because, inevitably, it is the room that uses the most water and energy. But one way you can help is to use materials from sustainable sources, such as bamboo and wood. Your choice of materials will also affect the overall look and feel in the room.

In choosing materials, you’ll also want to consider getting things such as tile or glass that resist water easily. This is an especially important feature in a bathroom where there is constantly water running.

Lighting

You can really save a lot of energy by getting smarter with your lighting. If you are going through the effort of remodeling the room, you might as well change up the lighting, even if the cost is slightly higher. LED lights will last longer and use less electricity, which means lower electric bills. Ultimately, saving on energy helps the environment and your pocketbook.
