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

Designer Brassware: envisioned by Kelly Hoppen, created by Crosswater.

Kelly Hoppen is a renowned name in the interior Design world, and now increasingly so in the consciousness of the general public, with Kelly’s appearances on popular programs such as Dragons Den, and interior Design series ‘Superior Interiors’. Creating chic, sleek interiors Kelly Hoppen’s designs are timelessly elegant and her style is highly coveted. Key notes are upscaled decorative accessories (think large scale vases and lamps), which create a sense of space and luxury, combined with a more paired back colour pallet and luxurious materials and surfaces.

Kelly Hoppen MBE

Kelly Hoppen MBE

In 2013 Crosswater, one of the UK’s most popular brassware brand names and Kelly Hoppen teamed up to produce a range of fashionably stylised and lustrous coordinating mixer taps, showers and mixers.

The first range was dubbed: KH Zero 1. These products were welcomed into the market with continued success and interest. The popularity of these has seen a further 5 ranges launched.

Zero 2 text

The current Design groups are: KH Zero 1, KH Zero 2, KH Zero 3, KH Zero 5, KH Zero 6

KH ZERO 1KH Zero 1.

This design range fuses together squared edge, ample-feeling tap bodies with slimmer curved spout designs that feature very sculptural negative spaces. The matching shower valve plates combine the same mix of squared back face plates, with round handle blocks and slim, curved levers. The handles add a lovely functional element, with comfortable smooth action technology and premium quality you would expect from Crosswater.

KH ZERO 2

KH Zero 2.

The Zero 2 range features rounded solid tap bodies with elongated, sophisticated thin lever handles, following the form of the spout. Modern and chic, these pivot on a smooth joint to control both temperature and flow in one action. The cleverly designed, slim handles are the main showpiece feature of these taps. Coordinating bath and basin versions with minimal ceramicware would create a softly serene, sophisticated bathroom space with a spa feel.

KH03

KH Zero 3.

Zero 3 has a well designed, thin handle on a pivot similar in fashion to the Zero 2, but with a completely different overall aesthetic. Boldly geometric, with crisp 90 degree angles and squared off corners the Zero 3 evokes a more architectural taste with strong, straight lines and corners.

You could pair these with black basins, polished concrete floors, geometric tiles, and a bespoke smoked glass wetroom screen for a look right out of the most exclusive interior design magazine of the moment.

KH05KH Zero 5.

Next is Zero 5, with a completely different feel again. This is a single kitchen tap, with a subtlety traditional design, featuring decorative fluted nozzle and base detail. Combine this kitchen mixer with a Belfast Sink for a beautiful timeless look.

KH Zero 6.

Last but not least is Zero 6, an edgier range with a nice contemporary twist. The forward angled tap bodies add a sense of movement and energy. The slim handles are light and smoothly operated adding to the overall dynamic, a pleasure to operate.

Hansgrohe Axor Starck V tap – innovation in movement!

We are really excited about the very latest tap that is in our showroom and we wanted to share this with you as soon as we could. Philippe Starck has excelled himself with this design of tap which he himself describes as “a revolution, the essence of minimalism a vortex, this wonder of nature, surrounded by complete transparency,”

The Axor starck V Spout tap has a glass body with an open ended spout which when operating allows us to see the water forming a vortex so fascinating that many will, we feel sure, just want to see it operate and almost forget why they have turned on the tap in the first place! The glass body and open-ended spout make it possible for us to experience water a completely natural element at home.

Axor Starck V

Hansgrohe are the manufacturers of this latest masterpiece and are renowned for their technological design and for bringing some stunning designs to the bathroom, the AxorV is just the latest. The spay researchers at Hansgrohe have been working in conjunction with Philippe Stack to try to bring us a way in which we could see the vortex in operation and they have succeeded with this glass bodied product.

However, what has not to be lost it that the tap has to be both functional and made easy to keep clean, they have achieved this with their easy click-in design and safety-stop function make it really easy to remove the glass body from its base to clean it, even without having to close the valve. Naturally the selected crystal glass has also been very carefully chosen and is dirt resistant and can be cleaned in the family dishwasher.

A number of finishes is offered for this revolutionary tap, chrome and high-gloss white variant, together with 12 other exclusive finishes, such as brushed nickel for the base and a sandblasted crystal glass variant for the body.

Axor Starck V bathroom tap by Philippe Starck

We are delighted to be associated with the exclusive launch of another stunning design from Philippe Starck in the shape of a glass bodied open ended spout tap that looks, as well as functions, beautifully. Indeed when describing his new design, Philippe said “Axor Starck V is a revolution, the essence of minimalism, a vortex, this wonder of nature, surrounded by complete transparency,” and we could not have described it better.

Axor Starck V

The Axor Starck V was the subject of a lot of research by the Hansgrohe technicians until they finally perfected the vortex principal which is the secret of this exclusive mixer. The Axor Starck V is certainly beautiful, but importantly it is functional as well. With the very easy-click-in design and safety-stop function, this makes it really easy to remove the glass body from its base to clean it.

Axor Starck V2

The material itself is also very carefully selected, Hansgrohe used crystal glass, which is top quality and importantly this is dirt resistant, you can even put the glass body into the dishwasher! In addition to the chrome and high gloss white, you have a choice of twelve different finishes, for example brushed nickel for the base and a sandblasted crystal glass variant for the body.

Bringing 21st century technology to your bathroom – Vado Identity Taps

As if by magic the Vado Identity waterfall taps, controlled cleverly by a unique digital touch screen which allows the change of temperature at the touch of a button! This is truly futuristic technology and with the water falling down the spout, changing in colour provided by LED lights, from blue to purple and from purple to red according to the temperature that has been selected on the touch screen.

Vado Identity Waterfall Basin Tap

You can choose between an open a wall mounted open channel spout or one mounted on a deck to fill the basin or bath and the open channel is a feature that is a wonderful blend of high chrome and LED lighting. The Vado system works well with low pressure plumbing, which it is not unusual to find in UK homes, working perfectly at just 0.5 bar.

Vado Identity Wall Mounted Waterfall Tap

The wall mounted completely digital touch screen which gives the bathroom an ultra-modern look that is sure to add style to any type of bathroom decor. A warm or hot bath is yours at the touch of a button and the temperature is easily gauged by the colour of the water running down the waterfall effect spout. The concealed control unit has the assurance of a 12 year guarantee from the manufacturer, supplied through UK Bathrooms at the lowest discounted prices to be found anywhere.

The St. James Collection

The retro styled Victorian and Edwardian bathrooms are very much in demand today as more people appreciate the simple, elegant lines and crisp white finish that makes this classical styling appealing.

We are pleased to present the very latest St James range of high quality products that include both the ceramic products, as well as a full range of Victorian styled bathroom taps and mixers, bathroom showers and traditional bathroom accessories.

Buying these vintage style products does not mean that you will have to put up with outdated technology, far from it. The St James technology is pure 21st century and although the taps, mixers and showering products look absolutely genuine Victorian items right down to the porcelain handles, they are in fact crafted from solid brass and individually polished by hand, to give a totally flawless appeal and shine.

Take the St James Traditional Deck Mounted Bath Shower Mixer Tap as an example. Looking at this you can imagine being in a swish Mayfair hotel at the beginning of the 20th century, the fine detail of the handle of the mixer and taps hides the modern disc technology, no more washers and dripping taps today.

St James Traditional Deck Mounted Bath Shower Mixer Tap

Again the Hampton High Level Toilet Suit is pure elegance but now includes water saving dual flush cistern. Similarly the Hampton Low level suite also has dual flush and will bring that sense of luxury to a bathroom or cloakroom.

Showering is not something that is totally new, our predecessors also enjoyed the luxury of an overhead shower. By combing the St James Manual Shower Valve with the 15mm Shower Arm and Head, a luxury style early twentieth century shower will have been created. The shower valve will deliver smoothly every time the correct pressure and water temperature and is suitable for all systems.

The St James Collection manufactured by the established British company Marflow Engineering Ltd.
