How to Choose the Right Shower Head

These dual shower heads offer a complete hydrotherapy experience.

It’s hot outside! You might find yourself spending more time in the shower this summer trying to cool off on those sweltering hot days. But did you know that the right shower head can make your summer cleansing all the more therapeutic? Replacing your shower head is an easy, affordable way to give yourself a fresher start in the morning. And like everything else in the bathroom, there are a million and one shower head options to choose from. Whether it’s a lavishing spa or no-frills convenience you’re looking for, you can find a shower head that fits your bathroom needs.

Wall Mounted Shower Heads

Wall-mounted shower heads are the most common and budget-friendly choice. They work with existing plumbing and are simple to take apart and reinstall. You can also easily add extra features to wall-mounted shower heads such as adjustable nozzles, sprays and pulsing massages or mists.

Handheld Shower Heads

With handheld shower heads a single spray nozzle is attached to a hose, allowing for easy maneuverability and control. These shower heads are excellent for reaching hair and hard-to-reach places. They are also very convenient when it comes time to wash kids or pets.

Top Mounted Shower Heads

Top mounted shower heads, or rain showers, are positioned directly over the user’s head and provide a sensual and stylish experience. These shower heads are luxurious and effective when it comes time to clean. However, unlike the easy replacement of other shower heads, a top mounted fixture may require extensive upgrades to your existing plumbing system. They are best installed during a full bathroom remodeling, and are a good solution for low ceilings.

Body Sprays and Spa Panels

Body sprays or multi-spray shower panels can provide a complete hydrotherapy experience. Installed in vertical rows on opposite or adjacent walls, these custom installations require extensive plumbing work, but also offer the most luxurious and comfortable shower. Make sure you consider the heights of each of the shower’s users before choosing installation points.
