In the area of conservation, we like the reminder to look for the WaterSense label on toilets, showerheads and faucets. With the increasing demand and higher cost for water usage, it's important to install plumbing products that offer at least 20% water savings over those products that just meet code. A high-efficiency toilet can shave your annual water bill by more than $90 while a low-flow shower head can save you another $150.
Many of our clients who have recently done bathroom remodels are deciding to add safety features that will allow them to comfortably age in place in their current homes. Some of the universal design features we've included in our bath remodel projects include
- framing for grab bars that can be installed now or later
- a curbless shower that has no lip at the floor and can be accessed by those using a wheelchair or other mobility device
- hand-held shower heads, also great water savers, and shower benches which allow for a seated shower or an extra surface to rest bath products or a foot
- taller toilets with soft-close lids
