5 Reasons to Upgrade Your Traditional Taps to a Modern Shower Mixer

Gone are the days when a bathroom was just a functional corner of your home. Now, it's a space that reflects your taste and style – a place for the ultimate comfort, relaxation and self-care routine.

If you’re looking for a small yet effective bathroom upgrade, installing a modern shower mixer tap is one of the best ways to enhance your bathroom without breaking the bank. 

With their sleek design, shower mixer taps eliminate the clutter of separate hot and cold taps, creating a smooth, minimalist look. But it's not just about aesthetic appeal; the smart, ergonomic design of shower mixers also makes a more intuitive user experience.

Just a small turn of the handle, and you're set for a perfect shower!

If you’re still not convinced, here are five reasons to upgrade to a modern shower mixer today. 

Precise & Instant Temperature Control 

Remember those days of endlessly juggling between hot and cold taps to reach your perfect shower temperature? With a modern shower wall mixer, that's a thing of the past.

Precise & Instant Temperature Control

Shower mixers combine both hot and cold water supplies into a single output, allowing for precise and instant temperature control. That means no more wasting precious minutes in the morning adjusting the temperature.

Plus, it reduces the risk of temperature fluctuation during your shower, giving you an uninterrupted, relaxing experience from start to finish.

Water Conservation Features 

Living in Australia, we all know how important it is to conserve water where possible, and it's no secret that showers are one of the main contributors to water use in the average home.

But that’s why we love modern shower mixers; they use water-saving technology to limit the flow of water without affecting the pressure.

This can result in significant water savings, helping you reduce your environmental footprint while also saving money on your water bills.

It's a simple switch, but it can have a massive impact.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

Changing over from traditional taps to a shower mixer might sound like a big job, but it's surprisingly easy. Most shower mixers can be easily installed into existing plumbing systems without the need for extensive changes.

On top of that, they're typically designed to be low-maintenance, thanks to their high-quality materials and easy-to-clean surfaces.

This means you can spend less time worrying about maintenance and more time enjoying your new and relaxing shower experience.
