464345_num1053149

BeWarmer Limited the specialist in on-and in-flooring heating , has introduced an under rug heater called RugBuddy™.

The RugBuddy™ is a flat electric heater that has been developed to be used under a rug in any room including  your conservatory and warms the area from the ground up.

It just costs a few pence an hour to use and also enables you to utilise the conservatory for a greater period during the year.

RugBuddy™ is healthy, safe and silent, with none of the disadvantages of traditional portable heating appliances.

An advanced heater element is at the core of all BeWarmer’s floor heating products including the RugBuddy™.

Its thin design allows BeWarmer heating to be employed in any room in the home, without the need to change the floor level.

In addition you can cut your heating costs too: The Energy Saving Trust declares that you will save £75 per year, for each 1degC that you turn down your C/H thermostat.

BeWarmer says that existing RugBuddy™ users find that they can set their room thermostats 3degC lower, which saves them a massive £225 per year.

The RugBuddy™ typical running costs for a size of 1.25m x 1.6m, is 250 Watts, at just 4p an hour!

NB You do need an underlay of some sort under the RugBuddy – see RugBuddy FAQs on the website.

RugBuddy can only be bought online in the UK from BeWarmer Ltd.

The Magnetic Warmroom Innovation Reduces Winter Heating Costs

Warmroom panels

Warmroom panels

Households in the UK can save up to 60 per cent of heat lost from radiators in their homes, by using Warmroom, a novel new product from the Sheffield based Anchor Magnets.

The product provides the solution to an existing problem caused by radiators pushing heat into walls, instead of into the room. Installation couldn’t be easier, since Warmroom is magnetic, so it just sticks to the back of an ordinary steel radiator.

The product has been initiated in cooperation with the University of Sheffield, to check on its effectiveness and savings of around 60 per cent of heat usually lost through the back of radiators was demonstrated.

The Warmroom product has also been designed to be easily fitted as no tools are required.

Tests performed at the university, established that the temperature of a brick wall at the rear of a radiator measured 45 degrees, while soon after fitting Warmroom panels to the back of the radiator, the wall temperature fell to 25 degrees, which showed that the heat wasn’t being pushed into the wall any more, but was being returned into the room.

Furthermore, it was found that even with cavity wall insulation, a radiator will pass measurable quantities of heat into the wall, instead of into the room.

Easily Fitted

Easily Fitted

Warmroom panels are also easily fitted comparable to other conductive heat products, which have to be fitted to the wall, since the radiator doesn’t have to be removed from the wall and the panels are slid down the space between the wall and the radiator, then magnetise to the radiator’s steel frame.

The panels are not visible when fitted and can be removed, cleaned and used again should the owner move house.

Savings resulting from the use of this technology, can make a considerable difference to energy bills in the home.

Warmroom is only available from the Warmroom Website.

Anchor Magnets is a major supplier of magnetic materials used by many High Street retailers and conducts a rigorous environmental policy.

Craven Dunnill Introduces New Trendy Hexagon Tiles for 2015

Astoria Stone Tiles

Astoria Stone Tiles

The hexagon is forecast to be a favoured style trend in 2015 for both floor and wall tiles. The six-sided tiles are already appearing in ornamental patterns, such as individual floor tiles and mosaics.

In recognition of this trend, Craven Dunnill has added two new collections featuring the hexagon: Etruscan and Astoria Stone into its large Renaissance Range.

Astoria Stone

This new wall and floor tile range presents a multi-stone design, which is a striking interpretation of the fashionable natural stone.

Astoria Stone is made of porcelain and comes in 3 colour choices: Country, Bone and Taupe.

The design is a Hexagon glazed floor and wall mosaic sheet measuring 245mm x 247mm.

Traditionally shaped field tiles, which compliment the hexagon design are also available.

The Astoria Stone Hexagon tiles featured here are priced around £20.70m².

Etruscan Tile Fuoco

Etruscan Tile Fuoco

Etruscan

The Etruscan floor and wall tile demonstrates the comeback of terracotta as a fashionable interior design form.

These new tiles mirror the appearance of original terracotta, due to new technology, but are made in durable glazed porcelain, instead of the porous and softer traditional terracotta tiles.

The move to large terracotta tiles is another new development, including hexagon shaped 600mm x 600mm glazed floor tiles.

Pictured here,  (bottom) is the Etruscan Hexagon floor tile in Fuoco, 125mm x 145mm priced around £91.10m².

420044_num1007866One of the outstanding features of the Arcade range from Bathroom Brands is its beautiful accurate detailing.

The Fire Hydrant pictured here is the Arcade bath shower mixer, fitted to exposed water pipes.

Betta Living Introduces The Intelligent Bedroom Of The Future

418631_num1006785_600x600 A bedroom for the future has been created by Betta Living that includes a smart virtual bedroom mirror, that can suggest what you should wear; also monitoring procedures that are able to adapt the environment in your bedroom, to suit your personal biological readings, as well as self-created 3D printed ornaments and 3D prints of family pictures.

The virtual bedroom presents an idea of how UK bedrooms are likely top appear in the near future, as household furniture, technology and accessories progress.

For example:

Virtual Mirror with Personal Stylist Functions

A virtual mirror will replace mirrors on wardrobe doors –  something that has been developed already by Computerlove for retailers, and that Betta Living considers will be unexceptional in our bedrooms in a few years.

The intelligent mirror will display our wardrobe contents, enabling us to look around and try on garments virtually, as well as suggesting what to wear, depending on the weather, our diary and what has been worn earlier.

The clothes will be micro tagged,  so there won’t be any need to open the wardrobe door to choose items, as they will be visible on the virtual mirror.

By means of gesture technology, you can then swipe through items and try on outfits using pictures of your clothes, applied to a life-size image of your body.

Select a pair of jeans or a skirt and the virtual mirror will suggest tops, shoes and accessories from your wardrobe that will be ideal for the weather and what you are intending to do that day.

In addition if you don’t have the right shoes to complement an outfit, the smart mirror will connect you to a website shop, where you can purchase the required item.

When it’s time to take physical garments out of the wardrobe,

Also new developments in storage methods will allow garments to be easily removed from the wardrobe, like Betta Living’s infrared motion sensor rail to be launched soon.

418631_num1006786_600x600Smart Windows

Clear glass windows and window decorations will not be part of the futuristic bedroom; replaced by a transparent intelligent window  that will react to the season and time of day, or personal choices.

The window screen can either be transparent or blackout, acting as a virtual window blind, to display an image of your choice – or use it as a smart TV screen, or to check on the weather, or even social media.

Already, the Transparent Smart Window from Samsung can be viewed online at: http://bit.ly/1BG23em and may even be available in the near future.

There are too many innovations to include here, but more exciting details can be seen on the Gadget News website.
