When it comes to upgrading or choosing a new shower, there are many different options to choose from. That’s why we asked Mira Showers, the UK’s No.1 showering manufacturer, to give us their top tips on choosing a new mixer shower.

What is a mixer shower?

Put simply, a mixer shower takes the water from your hot and cold supplies and blends these together to achieve your desired temperature. There are lots of style options to choose from depending on whether you are looking for a replacement mixer shower, a specific design or multiple outlets. Let’s take a look at some of the key considerations for your new mixer shower purchase.


Bar valve replacement

If you already have a bar valve mixer shower and are just replacing this, there are Mira mixer showers to suit. The Mira Coda Pro, for example, has a premium chrome finish will make a stylish statement in your bathroom, whilst its thermostatic temperature control makes showering safe for all the family. Easy-to-use controls make it simple to divert between the hand shower and overhead deluge shower, if you choose the Mira Coda Pro ERD.

Complete the look with matching taps

For a contemporary and cubist design, choose the new Mira Honesty EV or ERD mixer shower. This beautifully designed mixer shower is guaranteed to make a statement in your bathroom. Better still, the Mira Honesty range features elegant taps to match with your new mixer shower. The Mira Honesty tap range features monobloc, basin pillar, bath pillar and bath shower mixer options, depending on what you require. Similarly, if you have a traditional bathroom the Mira Virtue range also features complementary taps in a classic, Victorian-inspired design.

Dual outlet options

If you are looking to enhance your showering experience, choosing a dual outlet mixer shower could be a great option. A key benefit is the added practicality when cleaning your shower. Having the separate handshower makes cleaning your bath/shower enclosure a lot easier. Plus, having the two outlets means that you can use one to clean the other.

When choosing a dual outlet mixer shower, you will be spoilt for choice with stylish designs. For a classic, traditional bathroom then look no further than the Mira Virtue ERD mixer shower. This stylish mixer has been designed down to the very last detail, taking inspiration from Victorian design. Its simple control for flow and temperature makes showering easy for all of the family, with the added reassurance that it will work on all systems and pressures.

If you have a contemporary bathroom style, opt for the Mira Agile ERD mixer shower. This neat, minimalist shower is a popular choice and, like all Mira mixer showers, will deliver up to 3 times more flow than similar products with the powerful Mira Magni-flo™ technology.

Upgrade to digital

To upgrade your showering experience, why not look for a digital shower? The difference between a digital shower and mixer shower is that the digital technology (within a digital shower) enables the ultimate precise temperature control – to within a degree. Digital showers, depending on the product, also have precise flow control as well as other innovative features that aren’t available on mixer showers.

The Mira Platinum Dual digital shower is unlike anything else. In this innovative range, you can have both the deluge and showerhead working simultaneously. If you prefer just to use the separate handshower, the Mira 360 showerhead (which comes with the Mira Platinum range) has 4 unique spray experiences, so you can find the spray to suit your mood. Plus, the welcoming warm-up mode gets your shower to your desired temperature, then pauses until you are ready to get in.
