    • Bathroom with Environmentally-Friendly Design

      In the bath, environmental consciousness is as important as beauty and luxury. A wide variety of high-quality, eco-friendly products means you won't have to compromise on style to build responsibly.

      This gorgeous, contemporary bathroom was designed with sustainable, Earth-friendly elements in mind.

    • Sustainable, Renewable Materials

      The materials in this bath -- eucalyptus veneer and African mahogany for the cabinetry, quartz-surfacing countertops, and marble flooring -- are sustainable and renewable.

    • Natural Light

      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.

    • Low-Flow Faucets

      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.
