EcoSmart is trending- be smart and save water!

UK Bathrooms are committed to sustainability and being as eco-friendly as we can to the planet. We improved our delivery packaging earlier this year to green packing materials that are not harmful to the environment. However, there are still many other efforts we can make into protecting the climate and the environment.

Presenting the Hansgrohe EcoSmart function:

Innovative EcoSmart

Climate protection concern for the everyday individual can begin with showering and bathing, as the function that consumes the most water in our everyday lives. As water experts, Hansgrohe assumes a pioneering role in conserving this precious natural resource. Most of Hansgrohe mixers and showers are fitted with Hansgrohe’s EcoSmart technology. It only requires up to 60% less water than other normal products with no obvious difference thanks to its efficient design. Less hot water consumption means lower energy requirements. Therefore, fewer CO2 emissions and lower costs.

How does this work?

Showers

The water pressure in your shower is measured by the “Precision O-Ring”, it reacts flexibly to the water pressure and adjusts water quantity. If the pressure is too high, the ring makes the opening smaller. Vice versa, if it is too low, it expands the opening.

Available EcoSmart showers

Mixers

These work by adding air and operating with a special flow limiter. The EcoSmart aerator is integrated into the spout of the basin mixer and enhances the water with air. The outcome is a full, bubbling jet of water. A “precision elastomer” reacts automatically to various water pressure and modifies its shape. It maximises the flow, thus constantly saving precious water.

Here are a few available EcoSmart mixers

Following up the holiday season, the beginning of the New Year is always the most exciting time to plan something new and fresh!

We are looking into the latest bathroom trends for 2018.

If you are looking to invest in a bathroom remodel, you’ll be wondering what are the popular current materials, textures or styles. And what are the latest designer innovations in bathroom technology?

The tonal metallic touch is not specifically a brand new trend, however, is not going anywhere soon.
Especially the choice of Brass! It brings a warm golden tone to your bathroom design and ramps up the luxury feel instantly.

The AXOR Uno Select presents the newest Hansgrohe brassware technology, the select control provides simple temperature control over the tap.

Blends with natural materials

A key material that brings a tactile natural element into your bathroom design is wood.

This walnut colour Bauhaus Glide II Wall Hung Vanity Unit provides a warm tone and handcrafted feel to your bathroom design.

This is an excellent example of the elegant mixture of natural materials that can be suitable for a modern bathroom design.

The units finish is fully proofed and tested for family bathroom use, so you can rest assured there will be no distorting and splitting on the unit.

Burlington Low Level Toilet

You can also add more of a natural element by using an oak toilet seat.

It fits really well with a traditional style bathroom and is much more attractive than a generic white plastic seat.

Innovative solutions

Showering the Next level – The Shower

More than just stylish showers are very practical which is why they are the choice for most people as part of their daily routine. There are a number of different shower options available: from basic and affordable showers to luxury showers and water saving showers.

One of the most common types of shower, are mixer showers. These take hot and cold water from you water system allowing you to get the perfect temperature. Mixer showers can be powerful, depending on your water pressure. The other option is an electric shower: cold water is taken from your mains supply and heated by the heating element in the shower, when the water flows past. Electric showers are a good option for those with large families or those who use a lot of hot water as you don’t rely on a boiler. The can be use any time of day and heat up straight away.

Shower heads 1

Shower heads come in all shapes and sizes; from basic single function shower heads to multi-function shower heads with pulsating massage and different flow options. Fixed overhead and waterfall and rainfall showers to LED light up shower heads from Phoenix. You can choose from designs which will fit modern and contemporary as well as classic bathrooms from a wide range of manufacturers. Showers can also be fitted with duel shower heads, including fixed and moveable shower heads from Imperial or options for a two person shower.

LED shower heads

There are also a number of options available for the ultimate shower experience with body jets. These are fixed in the wall and adjustable to hit your body pretty much from every angle. They can be placed at any height and work well as a massage function, depending on the strength of the water jet.

Grand Designs Watch – Japanese Home

Tamayo Hussey, moved to the UK with her husband Nigel, however since she moved here she has missed Japan very much. The changes and culture shock inspired the couple to build a Japanese inspired home to ward off her home sickness. In the Wye Valley they bought a house which came on a nice plot of land. The house wasn’t very good, so they say goodbye to that to build their dream house by altering it completely.

Houses in Japan are built from light materials, and only last around 20 years, however this is due to the risk of earthquakes, so it is safer and easier. Hoping to improve the current house, by making blend into the surroundings better than brick, with Japanese larch wood. Inside, room plans will be open plan and free flowing featuring a number of Japanese influences with tatami room and sliding paper walls and roof bath.

Like many home builders, the couple are doing as much of the project themselves to save money as well as not having an architect on site or anyone to project manage the build. They estimate the project will take 9 months, but that never works. So can the couple beat all the hurdles they come across?

Like much of the house, the bathroom features sleek and simple fixtures and fittings which flowed throughout the whole space. It included a simple counter top wash bowl sat atop a wooden unit with a simple mixer tap. For the simplicity, the Bauhaus Countertop Washbowl fits the bill along with the wonderfully designed Adamez Eclipse i Double Ended inset Bath. All these wonderful pieces can be found on our Grand Designs Page, if you are looking for inspiration.

Apollo Torino White Electric Radiator 450mm

You have created a delightful cloakroom form an unused cupboard and fitted it out with one of the many cloakroom suites that can now be bought but there is still one thing that it requires to complete the room; you need a towel rail or holder. So why not complete the cloakroom with one of the many electrical towel warmers you can see on our web pages which are easy to install?

The Apollo Radiator is a functional and well-designed electric radiator and is a great way to improve heat flow in a space with limited square footage. Your unused cupboard space is unlikely to have had a central heating circuit within easy reach so fitting the Apollo is ideal.

This radiator is finished in an attractive pure white, and measures 450 mm wide, you can choose a number of height options from 700 mm to 1500 mm. This gives a range of heat outputs from which you can choose, depending on the total area of the cloakroom; these outputs range from 200 watts to 450 watts, according to the radiator size.

Product testing and assembly occurs in the United Kingdom, and meets all safety requirements to prevent injury. The radiator comes in either a straight or curved design, so it is functional in just about any space. Not just a device to hang your towels but it warms the room too.

Francis Pegler Ebro Bath Shower Mixer

If you do not have a shower installing one is really quite an easy thing to do, all you need is a bath shower mixer, a rail and shower curtain and then you have a shower over your bath. A better and one of the more permanent ways would be to choose from the many hinged or fixed glass shower screens form the pages on our site.

The Francis Pegler Ebro bath shower mixer is modern looking and very efficient in use. Along with other Pegler products this bath shower mixer is made to the highest possible standard using only top quality materials and carrying the usual manufacturer 10 year guarantee. Operation is simple and the levers are ¼ turn making it easy even for even those people who may have a poor grip. Although the mixer requires a minimum operating pressure 0.3 bar it will work at high pressures too.

Aeon Zephyr Radiator

If you are fitting out a new home or are considering changing the layout and decor of your current sitting room, this could be the time to think about buying a radiator that will make a clear statement about you. Is it not time to get away from the drab ordinary, although undoubtedly efficient panel radiator? We would like to suggest that you look at the Aeon Zephyr radiators which are clearly different and suggest that you have made a subtle choice.

These are designed for hot water systems either direct or indirect and are available in five sizes. With the Zephyr, perfection has reached new heights and you will quickly appreciate the cool lines and of course the efficient warmth that you and your family will appreciate. Available in a brushed or a mirror finish the Aeon Zephyr will be a stunning but subtle addition to your home.

Do not leave it too late to upgrade

With the long summer nights with us it is easy to forget that, for many of us we had a very cold winter and long periods of frost and snow. During this period did you think that your radiators were not giving out sufficient heat? The chances are that they may have become affected by years of use and it is no secret that today’s modern radiators are far more efficient than their older counterparts.

If you are considering an upgrade to a modern radiator you should be thinking about contacting your heating engineer whilst the summer is with us and before they get busy. The radiators of today are sleek modern and ultra efficient and you will see a wide range at our web pages from which you can choose. Just one example from the multitude is the Aestus Sorano Designer Radiator which is offered in two sizes and three finishes. All these radiators are manufactured from high quality stainless steel tube and these stunning ‘wave style’ radiators are available in polished, satin or decor stainless steel finishes.
