My American Standard Wishlist: Pick 3.

 

Here’s my third pick on my American Standard wishlist: The Bar Glass Vessel Sink. Who doesn’t love this new trend of above counter sinks? It’s easily my favourite current bathroom trend. How can you not love that now your sink can be a piece of art? This gorgeous sink comes in clear, frosted and a beautiful midnight blue.

My American Standard Wishlist: Pick 2.

Boulevard FloWise

My second American Standard Wishlist pick is.. The Boulevard FloWise! I love the understated elegance of the design of this toilet. It has a classic look with modern lines. (which is why I think it would go perfectly with the faucet in my previous post.)

Not only is the design stunning. It’s eco-friendly, which happens to be one of the most important features when I’m shopping for any household product. It’s high-efficiency, ultra low consumption (4.8lpf/1.07gpf) uses 20% less water than your conventional toilet and meets EPA WaterSense criteria.

What’s on your American Standard wishlist?

As you may know, Bathworks is running a fantastic contest where you can win $5000 worth of American Standard products to create your dream bathroom. That’s when I thought, what would be on MY American Standard wishlist?

I immediately fell in love with the Boulevard 8″ Widespread Sink Faucet. I love the clean lines and the square shape. I think it’s perfect for creating a minimalist and contemporary themed bathroom. It in itself is a statement piece for the bathroom.

Come fall in love with the Boulevard Sink faucet at one of our showrooms today!

Experience Truffle: Blanco’s Newest Sink Colour

Blanco has recently launched a brand new Silgranit® sink colour, and to say it’s stunning would be an understatement.

Truffle is easily one of the most versatile sink colours available on the market. It mixes browns and greys to create a beautiful taupe colour. It compliments dark and light counter tops perfectly.

Conservation Tips!

Everyone knows that there are benefits to conserving water, but what can you do to help? Here are a few ways you can update your old bathroom to an updated eco-friendly bathroom.

Check for leaks!

This probably the easiest way to start your water conservation journey. Make sure you regularly check all sinks, faucets, tubs and toilets are leak-free. A small leak can waste a lot more water than you think – thousands of litres a year!

Upgrade your faucets!

Water faucets are more efficient than ever. Choosing a WaterSense certified faucet will help you cut the amount of water you’re using. All the WaterSense labelled faucets reduce the water flow by 30%, but do not effect the performance of the faucet itself.

We carry a variety of American Standard faucets that are WaterSense certified, such as, the Boulevard, the Princeton and the Amarilis.

Boulevard Widespread Bathroom Faucet with Lever Handle – Bathworks Price $287.28

Go Flush!

Upgrading your old toilet to a high-efficiency water saving toilet will not only save you money, but save the environment too. Older toilets can use from 18 to 26 litres per flush, whereas a newer eco-friendly toilet will only use from 3 to 6 litres.

Check out American Standards FloWise Dual Flush toilet. They feature a two flush types: full flush at 6 litres per flush and a half flush at 3 litres per flush.

FloWise Dual Flush Elongated Toilet – Bathworks Price $208.00

Go Handsfree!

Do you leave your sink running while you brush your teeth? The beauty of hands-free electronic faucets is that they will only run when you really want them to, saving you money and litres of water each month.

American Standard’s Selectronic Promiximity Lavatory Faucet is the perfect fit for any bathroom. It features customizable water pressure, completely waterproof sensors and an integral in-line strainer that prevents clogging.

Selectronic Electronic Proximity Lavatory Faucet – Bathworks Price $435.60 (Special Order Item)

Low cost way to go green!

Aerators are a great and cheap way to save water. An aerator will restrict the flow of water from the standard 8.3 litres per minute to about 5.6 litres per minute, all while maintaining the quality and performance you’d expect fro your faucet. Aerators are a cheap and effective way to reduce your overall water consumption by up to 30%. Remember, not all your upgrades have to cost a lot money, even the little things will make a big difference in the long run.

Want to see how much water you’d be saving? Our friends at American Standard created a really helpful calculator. Try it out.

Quick fact: Bathrooms account for almost 65% of total household water use.

About Bathworks Style

Welcome to Bathworks Style!

There so many bathroom and kitchen renovation communities on the internet that sometimes it’s hard to keep up. They range from: the inspirational photo blogs, where you can find ideas to help you create your own bathroom oasis, the informational articles, where you can find useful tips which products to choose and how they will work for you in your home and the product review community, which is pretty self explanatory.

With so many resources, we thought it’d be a good idea to create a blog that will combine all these different bathroom and kitchen renovation communities. A one-stop blog, if you will. We’re passionate about what we do, that’s why we want to give you the most up to date information about bathroom and kitchen design trends, informational product reviews and helpful educational articles.

We encourage you to join in too! Ask questions! Post comments! Link us to your bathroom redesign and maybe we’ll feature your space on Bathworks Style!

Thank you for your support.
