If you're thinking of updating your shower, or looking to begin a whole bathroom makeover, one product you really should consider is a digital shower.

We often think that when a product is "digital" it’s instantly more technical and difficult to use. However, digital showers—or digital mixer showers—are often called "smart showers", quite simply because they are.

Digital showers give you precise temperature control, provide the ultimate contemporary style for your bathroom, as well as being packed with helpful and intuitive features. To help dispel the myth that digital is difficult, we’ve asked the UK’s No.1 shower brand, Mira Showers to tell us why digital showers are easy.

First let’s look at what makes digital easy for the homeowner, with 3 simple reasons why:

1. Digital showers that suit you

When buying a new shower, quite often it can feel as though your options are limited by your water system, current shower and lack of style options. With Mira digital showers, there are a range of options to suit you.

First, you can choose between a single outlet or dual outlet digital shower. Put simply, there is the option of having just the practical handshower with a single outlet such as the Mira Mode digital single outlet which comes with the award-winning Mira Switch showerhead. Or you could further indulge in dual outlet shower, which has an additional deluge showerhead—take a look at the Mira Mode digital dual outlet for more inspiration.

Next, you can consider whether you want a ceiling or rear fed shower. This means that you have the option for your water supply to be directed through your ceiling or the wall on which the shower will be positioned, giving you added flexibility in your bathroom project.

Finally, you can choose between different valves depending on your water pressure. A standard valve suited to either high pressure/combi boiler systems or a pumped valve for gravity systems. Remember to check with your plumber if you need advice.

Handy hint: Find out whether you need a pumped shower.

2. Style and substance

Digital showers offer great additional benefits both in terms of how they look and how they perform. To add a touch of sleek minimalism to your bathroom, try the Mira Mode digital shower range. Mira Mode is the epitome of style, and was recently awarded a Red Dot Design award. Not only does Mira Mode look great, it’s innovative too. This digital shower comes complete with an app for your smartphone for greater control; so switching your shower on/off, setting your shower duration and temperature are made that bit easier.

For a modern, contemporary look, it has to be the Mira Platinum range. This premium digital shower range is sleek, stylish and packed with innovative features. Its handy warm-up mode means that your shower will pause at your ideal temperature until you’re ready to get in. Plus with temperature and flow control, it’s quick and easy to fine tune your perfect showering experience.

3. Flexibility

One key benefit of a Mira digital shower is its flexibility. The digital controller/interface where you control your shower is flexible in where you position it within the showering area. With the Mira Platinum, you can also purchase an additional wireless controller which can be positioned up to 10m away from the shower, for example in your bedroom, so that you can switch your shower on from the comfort of your bed.

The Mira Mode digital shower comes complete with an additional on/off remote control which can be positioned up to 10m away from the shower valve. This means that you can switch the shower on/off easily from outside of the showering area—ideal if you have a large enclosure or the shower is installed over the bath.

For your installer

Mira digital showers are also easy to install. Everything that the installer needs comes in one box, including the fixings, so you’ll have everything that you need from the start. There are both wired and wireless digital shower options to choose from, depending on the installation.

When installing the Mira Mode digital shower, be sure to download the Mira Mode app for your smartphone. The app has handy troubleshooting tips, such as being able to switch over the outlets at the touch of a button, avoiding unnecessary additional pipework. Plus for added ease, you can watch the step by step videos for Mira Mode below, which guide you through the installation.
