Consider a Programmable Shower for Your Chicago Luxury Condo

Posted by Helaine Cohen on Sunday, March 31st, 2013 at 5:07pm.

Next to kitchens, a bathroom remodel offers the biggest return on investment. While you may not be ready to rip out the commode or re-tile your bathtub, simple updates like installing a programmable shower at your Chicago condo can add value and luxury. It’s the latest in shower technology, and it will have you hitting the snooze button a little less in the morning so you can spend more time in the hot water.
Chicago luxury bathrooms Programmable showers feature easy-to-use digital controls that let each member of the family pre-set their ideal water temperature, pressure, and even the type of spray, from a steady stream to pulsating jets. Best of all, the waterproof control panel mounts right on the shower wall where you can alter any setting at the touch of a button.

One of these amazing devices will set you back between $290 for a basic unit, and up to $3,500 for one with all the bells and whistles. Additionally, you’ll want to factor in the cost of installation, and this will vary depending on whether you’re in the middle of a remodel or simply adding a programmable shower to your existing bathroom.

If you’re in the market, consider the Vigo Shower Massage Panel, with six fully adjustable body spray massage jets, an integrated thermostatic valve, a fog-free mirror, and an adjustable multi-functional shower head with a 60-inch, chrome-plated brass hose. The panel sells for about $360. At the high end of the spectrum, the Moen ioDigital Vertical Spa offers four programmable presets, a 7-inch rainshower shower head, four body sprays, and an LCD screen interface that displays the water temperature. You can even get it with an optional remote control, and the unit retails for about $3,400.
