4. Showers are growing.
Bigger seems to be better
when it comes to showers, and studies show that many people are
significantly expanding the size of their showers during
renovations. Larger showers are ideal places for relaxation and
rejuvenation, and walk-in showers with oversize panes of glass,
multiple water sources and oversize rainshowers are becoming
“We’re seeing the oversize rainshower trend boom right now,” says
Dixon. “GROHE offers many different rainshower styles in hand
showers and showerheads that provide users with the spa-like shower
experience they desire.”
5. Conserving water in the shower is good for your wallet
and your soul.
Water costs can vary widely depending on
where you live in the country. No matter where you live, however,
reducing the amount of water you use will decrease both your water
bill and your utility bill (electric or gas, depending on which
fuels your water heater). To calculate how much you could save, you
first need to get a better idea of how much water you use. The USGS
Water Science School offers a great online water use calculator.
Once you know how much water you use, you can take steps to reduce
- Installing more efficient showerheads.
- Reducing shower time to about five minutes.
- Using technology such as thermostatic valves and digital
controls to shower more efficiently.
“Sustainability is a core principal during the design process at
GROHE,” Dixon notes. “Between our water-saving technologies,
faucets with adjustable flow rates and WaterSense products, we’re
proud to be category leaders in that regard,” she concludes. Using
less water is good for the environment, so you can feel positively
about your water conservation efforts, all without losing any
enjoyment of your shower experience.
