When it comes to interior designing of any place, what are the places that come in your mind? Bedroom, living room, kitchen….and? Many of us forget about the bathroom! From outdoor spaces to the tiniest corner, we all try to decorate every place, but how can you forget about another important part of your house?
Bathrooms are a new way to show luxuriousness. You might have seen the grand bathrooms in hotels and resorts. We all love the spacious and modern restrooms, right? On this god’s green planet, water is the most valuable and essential resource. We all talk about the reduction of energy consumption and water-saving, but are we actually doing anything to save it?
Do you know how much a regular toilet can use water with each flush? Five gallons…Yes, five gallons! — with each flush. Now you can easily calculate the amount of water you flush daily and then multiply it with the world’s population. You will get shocking numbers, right? Have you ever think like that? So, why spend more when technology allows us to use the resources more intelligently.

To reduce that obvious waste of a precious resource, many manufacturers are offering dual-flush toilets. What is it? How can it help to reduce water waste? Answers to all your questions lie in here, so keep on reading.
What is a Sink Toilet Combo?
A sink toilet combo consists of many elements such as a toilet seat, basin with a tap, cistern, and potentially, some storage. When all the elements are put together, it forms a sophisticated piece of bathroom furniture.
A Toilet Sink Combo is for Whom?
Toilet sink combo is beneficial for people who have limited space and also for those who want an eco-friendly bathroom. We all know how challenging it is to find a perfect place to live in metropolitan cities, right? Due to the shortage of space, there are only limited and compact places. So, this is a perfect solution for compact areas as it saves a lot of space. Also, this concept is becoming more popular as they offer real benefits. So, we should all consider and try using it.
How Does this Work?
After you do your business, you use the sink to wash your hands. The bowl uses freshwater, but all water used from the tap flows into the cistern and is stored for the next flush (known as greywater). And when you flushed, the toilet uses the greywater instead of freshwater. But don’t worry, the cistern normally fills if not enough water is used from the tap, while excess water goes into the pan via the internal overflow.
