Bathrooms & bathroom design

Sustainability in the bathroom generally comes down to two issues -saving water and recycling of waste.

Saving water can be achieved in new bathrooms by installing low volume flush toilets, but there also ways of reducing the water consumption of existing toilets. You can utlise a 'Save-a-Flush' bag in the cistern (generally available through your local water board), or a cruder but equally effective method for older cisterns is simply to pop a brick in it. Similarly use patterns can impact on your water usage -shower rather than bath, use the plugs on basins and capture 'grey water' for recycling. See Waterwise for more on reducing water use in the UK.

Bathroom waste can be recycled with composting toilets

Renovated Designer Baths

Be green and restore your old cast iron bath, or buy one pre-restored. Richard May of Cast Iron Rolltop Baths in Nottingham offers a bespoke service firing baths with enamel coatings and hand made mosaics. The process gives an extremely hard wearing finish and every bath is unique. Visit the website at for more information and pictures.
