Here in Los Angeles, we all know how important it is to conserve water. But drought or no drought, water conservation helps to reduce your environmental impact and lower your bills. You may be able to purchase faucet aerators from a hardware store that help to cut down your water usage by restricting the water pressure. Low-flow showerheads can do the same in your shower, but the design may night be ideal for your new bathroom remodel.
When it comes to renovating your entire bathroom, a technician can install a new low-flow faucet or showerhead with the elegance you expect from your new bathroom design. You should also have a technician replace an older toilet with a low-flush model, which may only use about half the water that an outdated model uses.
Incandescent lights were once the norm for bathroom lighting, but these are not always a very efficient option. In a bathroom, you need the light to be strong enough for daily grooming, whether it’s shaving a mustache or putting on makeup. Some fluorescent lights flicker or make you appear an unnatural green color in the mirror, but modern fluorescent fixtures should not have this problem if installed by a professional.
Today’s fluorescent lights come in different tones, warm or cool, and should effectively and efficiently light up a room without giving off too much extra heat. If you do decide that you need incandescent lighting, you might consider a pendant lamp next to the mirror or small lights around the mirror, to encourage those in the home to use this light only sparingly.
