For many people, it’s important that the fixtures and design elements of their home not only look great, but help save energy at the same time. Whether you’re trying to lower your energy bills, or you’re hoping to reduce your carbon footprint, there are a lot of great products you can add to your bathroom or kitchen design that can help you achieve great style, great function, and green status all at once. World Plumbing Day is March 11, which makes this a great time to make some smart, water saving upgrades to your home.
Many people are aware of how much water a toilet uses each day, with many homeowners making the switch to low-water toilets, which can potentially save you thousands of gallons of water each year. And you don’t have to sacrifice function to do so either. The Cimarron Comfort Height Toilet from Kohler is a 1.28 gallon-per-flush toilet that is designed to get the job done in just one flush. Unlike dual-flush toilets that sometimes require more than one try to clean the entire bowl, the Cimarron is a single lever toilet that always works the first time. Pair it with other products from the Cimarron line to get a cohesive style in your bathroom, while saving water at the same time.

Another area of the bathroom where you shouldn’t have to sacrifice function to save water is in the shower. Many people think that when you switch to a low-flow showerhead that you have to compromise on water pressure. This is not necessarily the case, take for instance Brizo’s Virage Raincan Showerhead with H2O Kinetic Technology. Low-flow showerheads in the H2O Kinetic line inject air into the water droplets before spinning them from the nozzle. The result is a shower that feels as though you’re getting much more water and water pressure than you actually are. Now you can have the best of both worlds with a showerhead that saves water and gives you a great shower experience at the same time.

The bathroom is not the only room where you can save water, it’s important not to overlook water saving capabilities in the kitchen as well. The Grohe Ladylux Pro Touch Kitchen Faucet encourages you to save water at the kitchen sink by allowing you to operate the faucet without having to grasp or touch a handle. A simple touch on the spout is all that’s necessary for the faucet to operate. So even if your hands are dirty, you can still shut off the faucet with a touch of your arm, saving water and saving clean up at the same time.
