Bathrooms are relatively small, yet frequently used spaces within a home. An outdated bathroom can be an unavoidable eye sore. Unlike bedrooms and common areas, bathrooms may take more than a new coat of paint and a piece of furniture to update the space. The team at Fox Valley Bathtub Refinishing loves helping our customers with their bathroom remodeling projects, and today, we are providing our top four tips for an eco-friendly bathroom remodel.
1. Refinish Instead of Replace
The bathtub is the focal point of a bathroom, and older, outdated fixtures are tough to hide. Rather than completely replacing the bathtub, refinishing is a sustainable alternative. Additionally, refinishing is also very cost-effective. Our customers spend 75-85% less by refinishing rather than replacing their bathtubs. Most often, tubs are made out of durable materials, so refinishing will help to extend their life.
2. Choose Water-Wise Fixtures
If you will be replacing your sink, toilet, or shower head, it is important to look for water-efficient fixtures. Choosing water-efficient fixtures will help conserve water, saving you money in the long run. Look for products that will eliminate useless water waste.
3. Select a Conscious Company
We are committed to using low odor and eco-friendly materials throughout our process. This helps us stand out as a top choice with our customers. We use green coatings that comply with some of the strictest standards across the country because we want to offer you the safest options. We offer products with low odor and low VOCs (volatile organic compounds) because our customers’ health is a top priority for us. All of our services are as eco-friendly as possible. From countertop resurfacing to sink refinishing or tile refinishing, you can be sure that we will offer the most sustainable and non-toxic options.
4. Shop Second-Hand
Finally, consider shopping second-hand for bathroom furniture and decor. Shopping thrift stores, online marketplaces, and garage sales are an eco-friendly choice as well as a great way to save money. Seeking out pre-loved items is a great way to add a few special final touches to your newly-refreshed space without breaking the bank.
