In our house, we like to be green when we can and we also like to save money whenever possible. One way that we were able to do both of these things is by salvaging toilets for our new home. We salvaged three toilets, and are happy to give them a new life in our home. 

After a thorough bleaching prior to installing, our new/old toilets are looking like a million bucks. We did two main things in order to give them a fresh look - replaced the levers with Fluidmaster Tank Levers and replaced the toilet seats with seats that have the soft-close feature.

If you are intimidated by plumbing, you don't have to be with Fluidmaster products. They have easy-to-follow video tutorials for installing many of their products, including their tank levers. These Fluidmaster tank levers can work with any toilet. They come in a variety of finishes, styles, and materials. The above oil rubbed bronze lever is used in our second-floor bathroom, which matches our oil rubbed bronze faucets and showerhead. 

In our master bath, we went with the 698 Brushed Nickel Premium Contemporary Lever

As you can see, we were able to take salvaged toilets and give them a fresh new look just by making a couple of simple changes. These Fluidmaster levers are a simple way to upgrade the aesthetic of your toilet in just a few easy steps. And as a person who is generally intimidated by plumbing tasks, the easy-to-follow how-to videos helped to make me feel like one of the pros!
