When renovating your bathroom or designing a new one, the shower is an important part of the whole process. It really doesn’t end with the type of shower you decide to have, buy you must also consider the type of shower head you want in it. There are many different kinds of shower heads to pick from and as result many home owners are not sure of which one to pick. When picking a showerhead, the best advice anyone can provide is to place the most priority on the features available as well as the cost. Hence, below are some of the most common showerheads and their features in use today.
Wall mounted shower heads
Wall mounted shower heads, like the name suggests are fixed on the shower/bathroom walls. Over the years, a lot of R&D has been carried out to ensure they have the best features and functionality. To name a few features; the heads is designed to be adjustable to a variety of angles depending how you wish, they also include hard water countering technology which helps in preventing corrosion and defilement of the skin. In addition to this, the shower head offers a variety of modes which you can interchange at will. The modes vary in number for different shower heads but the most common modes are misty and massage.
Top mount shower heads
Some people prefer their shower water raining from above as opposed to walls, hence the go for the top mount option. It has relatively the same features as the wall mounted shower head including the shower effects. The only difference as observed in the names is the position the head is installed.
Sliding bar shower heads
If the shower serves multiple people with different height, for example a family, a sliding bar head is the best option for you. The head is attached to a permanently fixed stand to the wall; however, the head itself is vertically adjustable to an individual’s preferred height. This means even the young get to enjoy the full experience of a shower just like an adult.
Dual Shower Heads
One of the best inventions to ever hit the bathroom remodeling market is that of the dual shower head and the double shower head. A really good double shower head can really make a difference to your shower experience and one that I highly recommend is a handheld shower head along with a rain shower head together they make having a shower seem like your on a tropical island.
Hand held shower head
This type of shower head is dismountable from its holder. The head is attached to a hose which makes it easier to maneuver the movements especially with slippery hands. Such a head is very efficient especially when washing something or someone else. For instance when you wash your kids or dog, you can use this head to make the washing much easier as opposed to using a fixed head. It is also very good for concentrating hot water pressure on specific parts of the body that may require the soothing effect.
Shower section systems
These systems have customized shower heads which provide an array of shower effects to the stream of water. Some homeowners who are current making use of these systems highly recommend it as it is almost like a Jacuzzi despite the standing part. The system provides control options for the head in terms of temperature, volume and pressure. You also have the freedom to decide how you want the effects and where you want them to concentrate the effect. This is because they system is characterized by multiple shower heads including ceiling and wall mounted shower heads which cover the body from the chest and back all the down to the feet.
Aerating and lighted shower heads
Nowadays, showerheads have amazing features such as LED lighting which comes in a variety of colors for setting the mood during a shower. Others have incorporated aerating mechanisms which mix water with air to create the feeling of enhanced pressure. This is advantages as you get to enjoy great pressure without using up a lot of water.
