Today we’ll talk about luxury bathrooms. But this time, let’s talk about something much simpler, but it has gone unnoticed in our daily consumption. With natural disasters happening all the time in the outside world, we can conclude that today, luxury is to take care of our planet and our environment, it is all that we will leave to our future generations. That’s why we believe in this new trend for luxury bathrooms: eco-friendly bathrooms. Take a look!
Sustainable homes are all the rage. What once meant switching to energy-efficient washing machines and refrigerators turned to the addition of solar panels to decrease the usage of electricity. Now the trend of sustainability has gone one step further to one of the least eco-friendly rooms in the house: the bathroom.

Sustainable bathrooms are quite the sight to behold. They are spa-fabulous, with what appears to be glossy, porcelain basins accompanied by brilliantly shiny fixtures; but unlike other breathtakingly decorated bathrooms, these are equipped with environmentally friendly toilets, sinks, and tubs that lower the amount of water used, without giving up any of their aesthetic charms.
All the rage in Europe, and now in the U.S, low flow toilets use barely three liters of water per flush. Dual flush systems give users the choice between three and six-liter flushes depending on the amount of water usage they require.
The same technology has been passed on to showerheads, with fixtures that use up to 70% less water than their vintage counterparts. This is made possible by an aerator, a device that is put into the end of the tap. It decreases the amount of water used by pushing air into the stream of water.
Tubs and sinks themselves are seeing an eco-friendly change. Instead of ceramic look for cast solid such as “Blu-Stone,” made from quartz. Bluestone is fired at lower temperatures than ceramic for a much shorter time, adding to its great eco-friendliness. Sustainable bathrooms are a trend that is definitely here to stay. Home enthusiasts everywhere eagerly await the next innovation!
