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 Year, New Bathroom?

The New Year has well and truly made its mark. So what resolutions did you make? To eat healthier, to give up smoking, or to make home improvements perhaps? If you’ve struggled to think of anything, or perhaps you’ve even already fallen at the first hurdle, don’t despair, how about making some changes around the home?

The start of a new year is the ideal time to refresh and renew, and often one of the most neglected rooms of the home is the bathroom. Does your bathroom need some New Year TLC? Thankfully, designers in the industry have predicted some bathroom trends for 2013 to help you decide on a new style:

Eco-friendly

Environmentally friendly products have been popular for some time now. Consumers are beginning to realise the importance of protecting the environment, and are buying products that reflect this. Think about the rise in ‘eco-friendly’ cars, and organic, environmentally friendly food. It’s the same with bathroom products – from water-saving taps, to eco-friendly shower heads, the bathroom industry has certainly taken notice of this consumer trend, and so there is plenty of choice for eco-conscious buyers. An added benefit of eco-friendly is that it usually means money-saving as well. In addition to water-saving devices, electric showers can be an economical choice for many homes as they work independently from the hot water system. By heating water on demand, installing an electric shower can mean that less energy is used to heat stored water that could otherwise be left wasted and unused.

Save Space!

Another trend for bathrooms in 2013 is going to be clever space-saving storage options. More and more homeowners are choosing to stay and extend their homes, rather than move house.With families growing  space becomes a premium, and with bathrooms typically being one of the smallest rooms in the home, storage space becomes even more scarce. While some homeowners may be able to extend their homes, add another bathroom or even an ensuite, there are many who need to make do with the space they have. So, the demand for cleverly designed, space-saving bathroom cabinets has become much greater.

Add Some Art

Typically, bathrooms tend to be quite visually sterile, with plain, earthy tiles, and neutral colours. As homeowners get braver with their interior design, bathrooms are becoming more exciting. Now, the hot and steamy condition of a bathroom isn’t the best place to hang valuable artwork, but a bright print protected by a waterproof glass screen could be an option to add some colour whilst withstanding the humid conditions.  Another idea is to add some eye-catching tiles to add a splash of colour to the room. Be creative!

Sensual Spa

Another bathroom trend for 2013 is to recreate spa like experiences at home. Many of us have had lovely experiences in posh hotels and health clubs, with their luxurious bathrooms, and now the trend is to recreate these relaxing, indulgences spaces in our own bathrooms. So, from heated towel rails, to underfloor heating, ambient lighting and streamlined, we’re all looking for the latest high-tech advances to make our bathrooms as luxurious as possible. Of course, when it comes to showers, you can’t get much more luxury than a digital shower. Press the button and the shower tells you when the water is heated and the shower is ready to go – no more testing the water with your arm! Extra touches around the room, such as candles, spa-like bottles and products all add to the effect.
