Refresh Your Bathroom This Easter

The Easter bank holiday weekend is typically the time when we start thinking about improvements around the home – from starting or completing DIY tasks, to painting the spare bedroom or just generally de-cluttering the cupboards, there’s always something on the list to be done. If you’re planning to give your bathroom a refresh this Easter weekend, then why not consider one of our brand new gse graphite electric showers?

We think these graphite electric showers would look striking in a variety of different bathroom styles – from contemporary to more traditional. They’re available in a choice of three power ratings: 8.5kW, 9.5kW and 10.5kW, so there is a choice to suit most households. We know that our customers like their bathrooms to be stylish, and no longer is the bathroom the ‘forgotten’ room of the home. We have developed this graphite range of electric showers to meet increasing customer demand for different styles and designs.”

One of the biggest bathroom trends for 2013 is a simple, natural style of bathroom. The use of simple lines and natural materials, such as woods and stones, to recreate a spa-like feel at home are all set to make their mark on bathrooms in 2013. The use of graphite colour would complement natural stone beautifully, so our gse showers would work well with this emerging style.

If you are interested in finding out more about the new gse range, the 3 electric showers are now listed on our website www.gainsboroughshowers.co.uk and prices start from £122 for the 8.5 gse.

New Electric Shower Range!

We’re very excited to announce the launch of our newest electric shower range – the gse range!

The gse range is our first range of graphite coloured showers – we had increasing demand from our customers to introduce a graphite range alongside our gloss white and satin chrome ranges, so here it is!

Gainsborough gse range

The gse range is available in 3 power ratings: 8.5kW, 9.5kW and 10.5kW so there will be a shower to suit most households. The showers offer easy-to-use controls making them suitable for the whole family to operate.

Electric showers have become increasingly popular in the UK in recent years due to their wide range of benefits. We have previously written a post on the benefits of electric showers.

All of our gse showers are supplied with fully chromed accessories (height adjustable shower rail, shower head and shower hose) to give them a contemporary finish. The 8.5kW and 9.5kW models are supplied with a single spray shower head, while the 10.5kW model is upgraded to a three spray shower head.

Safety Features

All three models in the gse range have a selection of safety features, including:

  • over temperature protection, which protects the user from selecting dangerously high temperatures
  • phased shut down, which switches the shower off gradually, flushing residual hot water from the system – protecting the next user and also reducing limescale build-up around the heating element to prolong the life of the shower.

Replacement Showers

Many of our customers with older Gainsborough electric showers will find that the gse range is a suitable replacement. We’ve listed all relevant shower models and any necessary information on our replacement showers page.

Prices start from £122 for the 8.5 gse electric shower, and all 3 models include free delivery.

Interesting Facts About Showers [Infographic]

Today is World Water Way, and to raise awareness of water usage, we have posted a fascinating infographic about showering.

In the UK, around 68% of household water is used in the bathroom – mostly in toilet flushing and showers and baths.

We also found the Men vs Women statistics particularly interesting.

For example, 70% of men shower daily compared to 57% of women, however, 64% of women think about to-do lists in the shower compared to 48% of men. So does this mean that women are too busy to shower everyday? And when they do, they are still thinking about other tasks to do? This may be why they tend to shower for 2 minutes longer than men.

Have a read through and leave a comment to let us know what you think…

New Era in Air Travel – Photon Showers

Business travellers are always looking for ways to make travelling more comfortable. After all, frequenting flying is tiring and business travellers often have meetings straight from the airport. What little sleep they manage to get on the flight is often interrupted, causing stress and tiredness. Furthermore, time differences and jet lag can make the situation even worse. 

So, Delta Airlines have presented a concept “photon shower” which uses bright lights instead of water to wake up tired travellers. It’s been described as a “90 second light bath”. When the starting and destination cities are put into the shower, it can calculate how many time zones have been crossed and how much light is therefore needed to combat jet lag. Very clever!

Photon Shower

This is not the first time an airline has experimented with light therapy; Finnair has offered business travellers bright light therapy into the ear canal since 2012.

What do you think of this “light shower”? Would you be tempted to use it on a long flight?

At the moment it is just a concept product, but it could be making its way to aeroplanes in the future.
