The showerhead seems like an afterthought. After all, it isn’t boldly demanding to have its style noticed. The vanity, mirror, tile, and more make bigger visual impressions. But the showerhead is one of the most important parts of your bathroom because it’s where you start your day each morning. If your showerhead doesn’t provide enough pressure, is an eyesore, or frustrates you every day, it makes it hard to start your day off right.
Take these thoughts into consideration when choosing the perfect showerhead for your bathroom.
Price is always a consideration when making a change to your bathroom. And while it may seem like the most important factor in the moment, keep the long term in mind. Remember that you’re choosing to change a part of your home that provides both daily comfort and cleansing. This might be an area of the bathroom that is worth splurging a little
Traditional single-spray showerheads are typically going to be the least expensive option, and they often come with an adjustable nozzle to change the spray patterns. More trendy showerheads, like a rain showerhead, will cost you quite a bit more.
There is a showerhead to match any style. Even when opting for an inexpensive traditional showerhead, you can choose different finishes to match the rest of your bathroom. If you’re remodeling your entire bathroom, now is the time to choose fixtures and elements that go together, including the showerhead. If you’re simply replacing the showerhead, aim to have its style match the rest of your bathroom.
What needs do you have, and can a showerhead help you meet them? Maybe someone in your family needs to sit on a bench while showering. A wall-mounted showerhead may make it difficult to accommodate that need, while a handheld showerhead can be detached from the wall for greater flexibility.
Maybe you struggle to keep your shower clean. A ceiling-mounted showerhead keeps the water flow to the center of the shower, reducing the amount of water that gets on the walls — effectively minimizing the risk of mildew growth.
Have people with drastically different heights in your home? Think about installing a sliding bar showerhead. Mounted on a bar, the sliding bar showerhead is easy to adjust for height. It can come as a handheld showerhead as well.
If you like to stay on top of the latest trends, consider luxury. These days, bathrooms — especially master bathrooms — are getting luxurious makeovers. People are recognizing the pleasure of having a mini spa in their own home. A rain showerhead gives a luxurious experience — and often looks beautiful too.
Looking to reduce your carbon footprint? A low-flow showerhead can help you reduce the amount of water your household uses by thousands each year. And technology has improved over the years so that low-flow doesn’t necessarily equal low-performance. You can still find a luxurious, high-performing showerhead that significantly reduces the amount of water you use each year.
