See how homeowners created a gorgeous bathroom retreat while using Earth-friendly materials and designs.
The materials in this bath -- eucalyptus veneer and African mahogany for the cabinetry, quartz-surfacing countertops, and marble flooring -- are sustainable and renewable.
To conserve electricity, this space maximizes natural light by day, offering two skylights and a large glass doorway to an outdoor spa. When artificial light is required, low-voltage fixtures on dimmers brighten the room.
The faucets for the sinks, steam shower, and two-person conventional shower in this bathroom are water-conserving, low-flow models. Energy-efficient radiant heating provides warmth on cool nights, and the bath's paints contain no volatile organic compounds (VOC) to pollute the air.
