A good shower head is more than just a way to get yourself washed up: it can refresh and relax you, preparing you for the day to come or helping you unwind before bed time. Some shower heads can even help your muscles after a workout by providing a gentle massage. There are shower heads that drench you in a downpour of warm water, shower heads that send out a pulsating stream of water to massage you, and even showers with multiple heads to get you clean faster. From less than £20 to more than £500, there is certainly one to fit your needs and style.
- A full-body drenching experience that makes you feel like you're standing in a rainstorm. Usually they are installed from the ceiling, but they can be on an extending arm from a wall mount or from a riser mount. They come in various shapes including Raindrop, Centurion, or Sunflower. They also come in varying sizes, from 200-400 mm.
- They offer a range of pressure from a light to powerful spray. Depending on the model they can pulse or change positioning. Usually they come as a wall, riser, or hand-held model, which provides extended mobility and flexibility.
- Shower Tower
- These more expensive set-ups are the pinnacle of the shower experience giving a full-body spray from the top and sides, much like a luxury spa treatment.
Keep in Mind...
- If you know that your home has low shower pressure or you have a large household where everyone showers at the same time every morning, be wary about purchasing a rainshower head for two reasons:
- They are usually less powerful than their adjustable counterparts, which have much smaller heads.
- They will use up hot water faster than other shower heads.
- If you have low pressure already, it will feel even lower than normal unless the pressure regulator is replaced while installing it.
- If you like very hot showers, remember that some heads that aerate the water to make it feel more abundant actually cause the water to cool down by several degrees, so you may want to look at either an adjustable head or at a rainshower head that comes equipped with a temperature gauge adjustment.
- Water type can also affect how you choose a shower head. If your area has hard water, opt for a plastic or rubber head instead of a metal one, as they are less likely to become clogged by calcium deposits.
