Over the years sustainability and water conservation have been on the forefront of all our lives, especially in the bathroom. At KBIS there was a reemergence of ensuring modern fixtures look sleek and fashionable but still are helping conserve water. Low flow toilets and the manufacturers focusing on greener ways to save water was seen in many toilet brands. One of the manufacturer‘s – Toto toilets has always been on the cutting edge of technology and their innovative process of using water to disinfect makes these automatic toilets the most impressive seat in your bathroom. This is one of the most impressive bathroom innovations of the entire show.
In this year‘s kitchen and bath show there was a definite sense of creative faucets that enhance your bathroom but also make life easier. From hand held faucets that grace the freestanding tub to deck mounted sinks that also offer the hand held sprayers. The sense of bringing kitchen faucet amenities to the bathroom is alive and well. Bathroom faucet manufacturers are starting to realize that the bathroom has the need for convenience and variety too.
Tile flooring is common in bathrooms and offers a nice alternative to hardwoods, which can get warped if they are exposed to too much water. If you decide to put ceramic tile on the floor, look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water-absorption rating of less than 7 percent and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip-resistant and can stand up to water. Also pay attention to porosity; you‘ll want a more impervious tile for the floor because of exposure to water. Vinyl feels better on bare feet than ceramic tile, and it‘s one of the more popular flooring choices as it‘s inexpensive and practical (safe, easy to install and maintain). Define zones in the room by using a different tile in the shower. You‘ll want to use a tile that has a water-absorption rating of less than 3 percent (lower than what‘s recommended for the floors) and has good traction (a coefficient of friction that‘s greater than or equal to .60). If budget is not a factor, then all-over tile can be an interesting way to merge durability and easy cleaning with style. Vary the color, shape, pattern, size and texture of tiles by using different materials on the floors, on the walls and in the shower. Using all-over tile is a good way to make a small space brighter, as the tile will reflect light.
