Whilst, we all enjoy a soak in the bath every once in a while, most of the time our busy lifestyles mean a quick shower is the most practical option. That said, thanks to the advances in showering technology there is no reason why this cant be just as rewarding. So, when considering improvements to your bathroom, whether to increase the appeal of your home for potential buyers or simply because you fancy a change, there are two different routes you can take.
The rip it out and start afresh option
Youve made the decision that you want to give your bathroom a total revamp. Perhaps you want to move things around to make better use of space or remove the bath and replace it with a wet room area. Whatever the reason, this will open up a whole world of showering options to you.
If you have a low pressure gravity-fed system or a high-pressure system (ask your plumber if youre not sure) then you could choose a mixer shower. The shower uses the hot water supply you have in the house, (stored or instant) and as the name suggests mixes this with cold water, supplying it at the desired temperature.
Mixers are available in many different designs, many of which can be used as an upgrade to create the minimalist look. Popular showers in the Creda portfolio include the Creda Bar Mixer and the Creda Overhead Bar Mixer. Both options come in a contemporary chrome finish and feature separate flow and thermostatic temperature controls.
The Creda mixers both provide affordable luxury however the Overhead Bar Mixer is even more striking in its design with a fixed rain shower and a detachable handset offering a flexible and stylish showering solution.
Moving forwards the very latest in bathroom technology is the digital mixer shower, sure to add the wow factor to any designer bathroom. Offering a wealth of benefits, the Creda Digimix is not only the ultimate in luxury showering but it is also flexible and easy to fit.
Compatible with either low or high pressure systems, the Creda Digimix is completely wireless which means it can be controlled via a remote whilst the mixer base unit can be hidden away discreetly in the airing cupboard, under the bath or in the loft, resulting in minimal disruption to tiling.

The upgrade and make good option
If your budget doesnt cover a complete revamp, then a bathroom makeover isnt out of the question. Electric showers are not only a cost-effective option but they are also economic and efficient to run. When you think of an electric shower you perhaps think of a white box on the wall. However, this is no longer the case and the new electric showers from Creda have been specifically designed to add a splash of colour and style to any bathroom.
If you are planning to replace an existing electric shower then an important consideration is what side the electrical cable and cold water inlets are. Unlike some other models available, the Creda AquaAmbiance and the Creda Advantage 550C are ideal replacement showers because they feature multiple entry points down both sides of the shower for pipe work and cabling making them compatible with the plumbing and electrics on your existing shower.
