Alternatives to Rainfall Showers?

We fully understand that rainfall showers are not to everyone’s taste. With this in mind we've decided to give you a quick rundown of our favourite alternative types of shower:

Shower Towers

Much like I did, you’re probably asking yourself what is a shower tower? A shower tower is a tall panel in which a shower head, hand shower, body jets (ooh fancy) and controls are installed. These showers are great for those who are looking to add a real modern designer feel to their bathroom. Although quite large in size, shower towers are great for adding a minimalist look to your bathroom as all fixtures and pipes are neatly hidden away.

The black slimline shower is tipped to be on-trend throughout 2020 so why not get the jump on your friends and upgrade your bathroom now.

Digital Showers

Are you fed up of your water going cold when someone turns on a tap? Then a digital shower is for you. Unlike traditional showers, the digital thermostat is built into the shower unit, meaning water temperature is controlled directly from the unit an not from water input. Ideal for those in a busy household who don’t have time to wait for the water to heat up each digital shower is packed with clever technology and lots of great features, a digital shower will certainly improve your showering experience.

All of our digital showers offer smart, simple showering at the push of a button. Many contain varying features such as: LED light indicators which flash whilst the water temperature is warming, and then remain on once the water has reached the correct temperature. An additional on/off remote control can also be included that is placed outside the shower and just to blow your mind that little bit further.
