Don't you think it's a good idea to plan your bathroom renovation with energy efficiency in mind? With the rising cost of living and the fact that salaries are not catching up, it is really important that you ensure that the renovated room does not consume too much power. Besides, it is very important for all of us to reduce our carbon footprint to the greatest extent possible so that we can make our individual contribution to keeping the planet safe. The first step must be from our side instead of waiting for others to start with it. Each one of us can of course be role models to end up in making a big revolution.

Energy conservation in a bathroom involves reducing your consumption of water and electricity. The simplest way to tackle the wastage of water is to install specially designed faucets that have water-saving features. For instance, you could install electronic-control faucets that operate only as long as the hand is under the tap. This is a great choice if there are many young kids at home who might forget to turn off the faucets. You could also install toilet flushes that use less than a quarter of the water that regular flushes use. There are also water efficient showerheads that give you adequate water pressure even though they use only a little water. You can find these accessories at a nearby store selling modern bathroom fittings and choose among the immense collections, which promote energy conservation and that which matches your desires.

When it comes to power conservation, you ought to install fluorescent or CFL lighting in the bathroom and is popular in almost every house these days. If your bathroom renovation budget extends to making structural changes then you ought to increase the size of the windows in order to get lots of natural light in the room. At the same time, the windows you install ought to offer you proper insulation so that it doesn't cost too much to heat the room or cool it. If the bathroom has a radiator then you ought to check whether the radiator is working well. Check whether there are any cracks in the window frames and seal them shut so that the room stays well insulated.

Your bathroom renovation exercise will definitely cost a bit of money since you will probably need to buy new appliances and fixtures. The final decision is always yours in selecting the best products that aims at joining hands with 'go green' concept.
