Copper Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation

Smart Home Heating & Technology

When we say that there will always be a family member that will be too cold while someone else is too hot, you automatically know who those people are. So, to keep everyone happy (and to stop Mum turning up the heating without you knowing) we recommend investing in some smart home technology - or in other words, welcome to Nest Thermostat!

Not only will Nest regulate the temperature of your home, it may also save you a few pennies. We promise you, you won’t hear the phrase ‘just put another layer on!’

  1. No more programming.

    Just turn it up and down. With Auto-Schedule, Nest learns from you and programs itself.
  2. Save while you’re away.

    Don't heat an empty home. Home/Away Assist adjusts the temperature after you leave.
  3. Control it remotely.

    Change the temperature from anywhere using your mobile, tablet or computer.
  4. Manage your hot water.

    Nest can control your hot water tank. You can even adjust the hot water schedule from your mobile.
  5. Check your Energy History.

    See how much heating you've used and why. The more you know, the more you can save.
  6. Say goodbye to guessing.

    True Radiant turns the heat on just in time to reach the temperature you want, when you want.
  7. Get it installed.

    The Nest Thermostat should be installed by a professional. Find a local pro at

Quick Ways to Freshen Up Your Bathroom

The bathroom is going to see a lot more footfall and traffic over the festive season so make sure that it’s going to impress anyone who uses it. With that in mind, you can really make some big changes with a few small additions.

Anorak Wave Bath Towel

Anorak Towels

Anorak towels are fun, quirky and pretty damn cute! With patterns to choose from such as ‘Orcas’, ‘Fish’, ‘Waves’ and ‘Owls’, there is sure to be something that will brighten up your bathroom. After all, life is too short to not have funky bath towels!

Copper Bathroom Accessory Set

Bathroom Accessories

An accessory set is basically royalty when it comes to sprucing up your bathroom so we’ve got some gorgeous sets for you to choose from. From Copper Bathroom Accessory Sets to Marble Sets and Patterned Sets, we can’t think of an easier way to add style and design to your bathroom without having to grab your paintbrush!

Tidy Your Bathroom with Savvy Storage

There’s always one person who will have a little snoop in your bathroom so make sure you have the capacity to hide (stuff away!) all of your lotions and potions. You’ll look way more organised and it’s an excuse to add a gorgeous new mirror cabinet. You can even get one with LED lights – someone’s fancy!

LED Mirror Cabinets

The great thing about LED Mirror Cabinets is that they serve multiple purposes. There’s obviously the main one (you can see yourself in the mirror!) but the LED light adds a warm glow to your bathroom. They’re also great for creating the perfect lighting for shaving or applying make-up. We love the Dawn Illuminated LED Mirror Cabinet as the shelves allow you to hide all those year old shampoo bottles that you might just ‘need one day!’ 

Pedal Bins & Storage Bags

By adding a couple of accessories such as a pedal bin or a storage bag, you’ve instantly given a home to the more unsightly aspects of your bathroom. Yep, used towels now have a place to hide so no more excuses as to why they’re on the floor. A bin is also the best way to stop clutter building up over time, without you even realising! Plus, we’ve got some pretty cute options- just take a look at this Marble Pedal Bin – it’s on trend and a pretty impressive price too. You could also match your storage bag with your towels too as we’ve got the whole shebang when it comes to co-ordinating your Anorak towels with an Anorak Storage Bag.

Feeling inspired to shake up your bathroom just in time for the big festivities? Good! We did our job.

Oh while we’re on the topic, let us be the first to say Merry Christmas… (And a happy new year!)
