Home Living : January 6th 2009
HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, January 6, 2009 1 Water wise Your shower can account for up to one- quarter of your water use. An easy way to save water is with a more water-efficient shower head. These use about half as much water as traditional models, meaning you can save about three buckets of water each time you shower. They can also save money on water and energy bills. Sydney Water will install a water-efficient shower head as part of their WaterFix service, and the plumber will also install flow regulators in your taps and fix minor leaks around the home. The basic WaterFix service costs $22 and can save you around $66 a year in water and energy bills. It can also help water down your carbon footprint, reducing the average household's carbon emissions by around two tonnes. To book a WaterFix visit, call 1800 995 886. HOMELIVING Launching a counter attack » ADVERTISING FEATURE Increasingly, designers and homeowners are choosing washbasins with sizeable shelf space on either side to display toiletries and accessories. Decorative vases and candleholders placed around the washbasin help create a more relaxed bathroom environment. By replacing large under- or over- counter vanity units, this look helps achieve a minimalist-style bathroom. Villeroy & Boch has a new Variable washbasin that has a smooth, round bowl set into a long shelf. The relatively deep basin features a wide rim and juts out from the shelf, providing a distinctive aesthetic. It is available in five designs -- a single, centred washbasin with two options of shelf length; a single washbasin with the bowl positioned to the left or right of the counter; and a double washbasin, ideal for couples. Villeroy & Boch's washbasins are available with the company's Ceramicplus finish, providing a surface which is easy to maintain and keep clean. Ceramicplus causes water to form droplets which then roll off the surface and down the plug hole, taking lime and dirt residue with them. It offers environmental benefits by eliminating the need for aggressive cleaning agents. The Villeroy & Boch Variable washbasin is priced from $999.
