Trends come and go, especially for the home. What may be hot now, may not stay hot for long. It’s important not to get caught up in the latest trends at the risk that they will date quickly. With home improvement, you want to make sure that you opt for more of a timeless approach and make the most of your investment.
Sustainability has been a hot trend recently in New Zealand, becoming more mainstream every year, with campaigns such as Plastic Free July; and the nationwide ban on single-use plastic bags. Homeowners are increasingly looking for environmentally friendly options for renovating their home.
Caring for the environment and choosing sustainable options that are long lasting is a must for any home renovation. Whether it’s making sustainable choices in the garden, such as planting the own veggie patch, or using sustainable appliances and fixtures in the home, there are many ways for homeowners to make more ecological choices.
When renovating, it’s important to keep this in mind, and look out for alternatives that might be easier, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly. Saniflo’s Sanicompact is the first ever toilet to be awarded a 6-star WELS rating for water efficiency. A completely self-contained unit, Sanicompact has a water saving cistern-less flush, using 3 litres of water for a full flush – this is half what a standard toilet uses. This means the average New Zealand household can save up to 13,000 litres of water per year.
This means it is financially savvy on the water bill as well as being environmentally friendly, making a great option to consider for a bathroom renovation. Homeowners can easily use this pump in their homes and the best part; it makes the toilet addition possible nearly anywhere in the home. There is no need to rely on existing plumbing locations, or gravity. As there is no need for cutting concrete or flooring to access drainage or lay pipes, there is no disposal of flooring to worry about.
Saniflo is known for making the seemingly impossible bathroom and kitchen installations possible. It is now easy and affordable to add wet area fixtures anywhere you desire. As with any plumbing product, you will need to get your local plumber to install a Saniflo product.
Unlike traditional fixtures, Saniflo products don’t rely on gravity. With small pipework, Saniflo opens up a world of possibilities for your dream bathroom, kitchen, laundry, granny flat or powder room.
