Default Shower advice - thermostatic or tap mixer?

Hi all,

Just looking for some advice on a shower.

We're getting our small bathroom (2x1.8m) gutted and are thinking of upgrading the shower.

At the moment there's a cheap tap shower mixer and we are thinking of upgrading to a thermostatic one.

Question is, do you think it's worth it? the thermostatic ones probably cost a bit more and it will also be more expensive labour-wise (pipework and replastering). But my impression is they look a bit nicer. Is the performance significantly better?

The Mira Element range looks good value at £180.

We have a decent combi boiler, which is about 6m from the bathroom, model = Valliant ecotec pro24
