The bathroom can be one of the least eco-friendly spaces of your home if you’re not careful. Just think about how much water and energy is wasted in the bathroom everyday – not to mention the materials used in the design of the bathroom. If you’re looking to design a more eco-friendly bathroom, then consider some of the following bathroom remodeling tips:

Trilogy Showcase- Eco-Friendly Bathroom Designs

When remodeling your bathroom, try to use materials that are eco-friendly. For example, using local materials, such as stone, instead of ordering materials from far way. Materials that are shipped to you have to be transported, which means that you are contributing to the use of gas and the release of exhaust. You may also want to think about using recycled materials – you can find some beautiful wood to repurpose for your vanity, for example.

Don’t forget about your fixtures either. Look for low-flow faucets and dual flush toilets. These fixtures help to reduce the amount of water that is used without sacrificing performance.

Consider some of these eco-friendly bathroom remodeling tips. Be sure to contact us at Trilogy Builds today for more information and advice concerning eco-friendly bathroom design and green building in general.

If you’re planning a green home design, then odds are you have some idea about a few of the green home building materials that you can use. However, there are a few surprising materials out there that we can incorporate  for a green home design. Here are a few of those materials:

  • Tires and other trash – Believe it or not, you can use tires, cans, old appliance parts, and more to build your interior walls as well as your roof.
  • Straw bales – Straw bales are a fantastic option for insulating your home, whether you’re planning a standard wood-framed house or a steel-framed one. When stacked above one another, they’re even strong enough to be load-bearing.
  • Shipping containers – You won’t believe how many shipping containers are being used everyday around the world. There are plenty of empty ones that just sit around. And guess what? They are a fantastic building material as they are fireproof, waterproof, durable and insulated!

These are just a few of the materials that you may not have realized can be used for your green home project. Find out more by contacting us at Trilogy Builds today.
