The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the home, not only can it add significant value to your home – it’s a room designed for unwinding and important relaxation away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. At the Shower Doc, we like to think we know a thing or two about bathrooms – so have put together a guide on some quick and easy bathroom upgrades to improve both bathroom style and function.

Give your bathroom an update without starting from scratch

Give your bathroom an update without starting from scratch

Water Pressure

One of the most frustrating things in the home is a lack of water pressure, not only does bad low water pressure mean that your taps dribble – it usually means a disappointing shower experience where you have to ‘run around under the shower to get wet’ For those with this issue, there is the Salamander HomeBoost. This is an intelligent water pump, which recognises when pressure and flow is low and automatically boosts the performance of mains water. They work to great effect and are incredibly popular, furthermore – we stock this product with over 50% discount.

Shower Enclosure 

It may be that your current shower enclosure takes up either too little, or too much room. Older, more bulky shower enclosures can take up a lot of room in smaller bathrooms and ensuite – whilst the same can be said for small shower enclosures getting lost in bigger bathrooms. Today, shower enclosures have been optimised in creating the maximum available space for showering, with the minimum footprint into the bathroom. One of our bestsellers is the Premier Walk-In Slimline Enclosure, perfect for creating a more luxurious shower experience.


If you are looking for an upgrade from the traditional type of shower in your home, there are a number of options available to you:

Digital Showers are perfect for contemporary bathrooms, and offer unrivalled control and style. The Aqualisa Quartz Digital Shower is one our top performing showers and boasts sleek controls, allowing you to precisely control shower temperature.

Many of our customers are also choosing to replace their old shower with a shower which also has a hand held showerhead – just like the Aqualisa model above. These showers usually have larger shower heads, also known as rainfall shower heads, which really enhance showering experience. For those looking for the most luxurious showering experience, we recommend the Crosswater Rio Revive LED Illuminated Shower Head with Double Waterfall (Quite a mouthful)

This shower boasts a brilliant visual effect, with LED lighting in green, red or purple colours. The shower also has a double waterfall feature for the ultimate showering experience.

Wall Panels 

Shower Wall Panels offer the perfect fit for any bathroom, and provide an easy and inexpensive alternative to tiles. Once installed, they offer a seamless finish in a wide variety of colours and finishes. The Carbon Pearlescent finish is one of our favourites, and can be seen below.

Mirrors and Multimedia 

Everyone needs a mirror in their bathroom, whether it’s plucking, shaving, hair styling or washing – they serve an important function whilst helping brighten a room. The EuroShowers LED Backlit Demisting Mirror, with Bluetooth Speakers however takes mirror function a couple of steps further. Available with over 53% off RRP.


Updating taps can be a brilliant way of improving the form and function of your bathroom. A massive range are available, from budget taps to luxury taps which suit basins, baths and showers. One of our favourite from the basin tap range is the Crosswater Basin 3 Hole Set Deck Mount Tap.
