The powder room or half bath is typically a main floor bathroom with a sink, toilet, small vanity and mirror. It is usually the smallest room in your home, averaging just 4 feet by 5 feet. If you measure its popularity by the amount of traffic a room gets per square foot, the powder room is certainly worthy of a unique design.
Because of its small size, the powder room is a great place to take chances with design. You might try an intense color or unique materials and products that might typically overpower a larger bathroom.
We've put together a list of some of the hottest green products for the bathroom. Every faucet, toilet and showerhead in this list is designed for water-efficiency and meets or exceeds the EPA's WaterSense® requirements. Showerheads are the newest addition to the WaterSense® family of bath products.
Advances in plumbing technology and design mean that you can now choose faucets, showers and toilets that use significantly less water than standard models while still delivering the rinse, spray and flush you expect.
