1. A stylish shower for under £80*
If the recent hikes in energy bills and the cost of living have left you carefully counting your pennies, a stylish new dual outlet shower may seem one luxury too far. However, we’d beg to differ.
Even if you’re working to a tight budget, you can easily afford this stunning all-in-one system. With the ability to switch between the luxurious overhead drench head and the more focused handset, the experience is utterly exhilarating. And the great thing is, it can be simply fitted to an existing bath shower mixer tap or combined with your choice of bar valve.

6. Brush up on your brass
While matt black has proved an exceedingly popular shower finish in recent years, the top choice for 2024 is most definitely brushed brass.
A superb option for contemporary and traditional style bathrooms alike, brushed brass gives off a warm, inviting appearance, whilst being easy to maintain.
This exposed mixer shower system from Mode Bathrooms comes complete with cool-touch technology, meaning no risk of accidental burns, should your skin come in contact with the valve. Plus, with thermostatic control, it keeps your water temperature consistent, meaning no sudden shocks when someone turns the kitchen tap on!
7. Stream music as you shower
If singing in the shower really is your thing, you won’t want to be without this next product in 2024!
The Mode Stream Bluetooth speaker shower head is the perfect way to give your mornings (or evenings) a boost. Featuring a detachable speaker (that can be charged using the USB cable supplied), stream music straight from your phone or tablet.
As the speaker forms an integral part of the shower, audio doesn’t get drowned out like with conventional speakers. You can listen to podcasts, audiobooks and much, much more. Plus, it’ll make a fabulous gift for any special music-loving person in your life!
