Best Ways to Save Water in the Bathroom

Water conservation makes sense both economically and environmentally. DécorPlanet is pleased to offer these suggestions for saving water that can decrease bills and increase your environmental stewardship without requiring you sacrifice comfort and style.

Water Saving Tips
Let’s be honest, the easiest way to save water is to use it wisely. This means taking simple steps like turning it off when you’re completing tasks such as brushing your teeth or shaving. You can fill the basin of your sink to have water easily accessible, but this too can require a significant amount of water. Try turning the faucet on as needed to rinse toothbrushes or razors, and turning it off as soon as the task is completed.

Get creative. For example, if you have house plants, consider placing a bucket in the shower while water heats up. This enables you to use water that would otherwise have gone, literally, down the drain, for something much more practical.

Fix leaky faucets. Millions of gallons of water are wasted every year through leaky bathtub and sink faucets. If you have a faucet that is leaking, fix it – or better yet, install low-flow fixtures. Toilets, faucets, and showerheads can be purchased with low-flow options, and DécorPlanet has an impressive selection of eco-friendly bathroom fixtures, allowing you to pick those with the designs and features most conducive to your lifestyle.
