I think it’s hard to find any kind of inspiration for decorating a bathroom. As a room it needs to be functional and practical and it’s difficult to add any kind of real style outside of the essential bathroom furniture, particularly in a family bathroom. I came across this lovely post on the Pippa Jameson Interiors blog a couple of days ago which talks about all the great things you can add to a bathroom to give it a little character. Pippa mentions adding texture through different materials, but as much as I love them I can’t see them being very practical with children around. Glass bottles are a definite ‘no-no’ these days.
In my days before babies, I had lots of lovely items strewn about the bathroom – glass dishes, candles, wooden logs and so on. Now, of course, the only things strewn across my bathroom tend to be plastic, foam, and brightly coloured. And let’s not forget wet soggy flannels, discarded underwear, and plenty of loo roll!
So I was delighted when Mira Showers contacted me to ask if we would like to try out one of their brand new shower heads, the Mira 360. What a great way to add a bit of dramatic style to our ‘over the bath’ Mira shower and to spruce up the bathroom decor! And of course my other half was very happy to try out a new bathroom gadget.
The Mira 360 Shower Head comes with Flipstream technology – a completely unique flipping mechanism which allows you to alternate between the 4 different spray options. Cool! The design is sleek and minimal, gently curving and aesthetically pleasing. It was easy to fit to our existing shower and it wasn’t long before we’d persuaded Miss E to try it out.
So what are these 4 sprays? Well according to the blurb they are:
Rain – a full drenching spray; Burst – an awesome sheet of massaging water; Cloud – soft and soothing, surprisingly soaking; Storm – a breathtaking saturating downpour.
Here it is in action attached to our shower
We loved the Flipstream technology, very novel. The differing sprays are innovative. Did they deliver when attached to our shower (it’s supposed to be suitable for all showers and ours is a good Mira Escape electric one)? Well in the majority they did. But the shower just didn’t seem to produce enough power to make Storm as breathtaking as it should have been! It is staying put though, and I do love that it seems to be enticing my children near water again! Long may that continue.
The Mira 360 Shower Head retails for £60 and is available from Mira Showers’ website.
Mira Showers kindly sent me the Mira 360 Shower Head to review for free. The opinions and comments however, are genuine and my own.
