Bathroom accessories, such as towel bars and toilet paper holders, are available to match the finish and style of the faucet you choose, and are an easy way to add a bit of pizzazz to your bathroom. Purchasing bathroom accessories in a set is less expensive than buying items individually.
The eco-friendly, water saving Lindley Kitchen Faucet from Moen uses almost a third less water than other faucets and has a stylish appearance as well. Pushing the button on the extendable nozzle changes the stream pattern and reduces the flow from 2.2 to 1.75 gallons per minute.
Tub and shower faucets, like this one from Moen, that come equipped with a pressure balance valve adjust to any changes in water pressure automatically. This allows your shower or bath to maintain a constant water temperature and prevent scalding when water is being used elsewhere in your house.
One way to save water is to install low-flow aerators on kitchen and bathroom faucets. They can be installed in minutes by screwing them into the end of faucets. While most aerators limit water to three gallons per minute, low-flow models are available for around $5 that can reduce the flow to as little as one GPM. This can reduce faucet water usage and save energy.
