Water-Saving Devices

Saving water is now a concern everywhere. It will help lower your water bill and preserve one of earth’s most precious natural resources. Consider the ultimate in low-flow shower heads. One would think that no one could not live without a full spray of warm water, but technology has made it possible to still get a refreshing burst of water and still use much less than before. Toilets with two flush options are also popular. The new tankless water heaters will also only heat water as needed without storing large amounts at a time, saving even more of this natural resource and keeping this utility bill down.


It used to be that there was very little storage in bathrooms. Now storage options are endless. Hooks, open shelving, over-the-door units, and even the area below the sink has become more organized and accessible. Wall-mounted storage cabinets at just the right height are one of the more popular additions to this year’s evolving trends. Even the decor lends itself to storage. A cozy ottoman, a large wicker basket, or trendy wooden boxes all give the occupants new places to store magazines, towels, or bathroom amenities for guests.


The colors used in this area used to be very subtle and even bland. Bolder looks are now extremely popular and can be achieved through the use of darker or brighter shades or even wallpaper. A great way to begin selecting your tones for this room is to choose a piece of wall art that will hang on one of these walls and select the most striking colors from it and use it in your decorating scheme. Add extra mirrors to make the colorful additions really pop and make the room look larger. 2016 is going to be a great year for new and upgraded bathrooms. Think about remodeling your Sterling bathroom soon and add all of these special features to make this area truly distinctive and inviting.
