We're no longer living in the days of a utilitarian shower head. When it comes to attracting attention, the showerhead isn't boldly assertive. At least, not as much as your bathroom mirror, vanity, and tiles, as they make more noticeable visual impressions. Nevertheless, the showerhead is an essential bathware component of your bathroom since it's responsible for ensuring you have an enjoyable showering experience every day.

With varying water pressures, nozzles, and other features, picking out a good shower head for your bathroom can be a huge undertaking if you have not done your research beforehand. To make things easier, here are some important tips to keep in mind while choosing a shower head for your bathroom:

Types of Showerheads: 

If you are unsure of which kind of showerhead to go for, here's starting with 3 different types of showerheads you can choose from:

  • Standard Wall-Mount Shower Heads: Despite being simple and elegant, these showerheads aren't overpriced and are perfect for those who don't want to overspend. Using wall-mounted showerheads is easy, hassle-free, and DIY.
  • Hand-Held Showerheads: They are known for their flexibility of use, which is important when bathing children or animals, or when it comes to washing certain parts of the body where a wall-mounted showerhead can't reach.
  • Rain Showers or Ceiling-Mounted Showers: Unlike traditional showerheads, ceiling-mounted showerheads, as the name implies, provide a 'drenched in rain' feeling. Showers are installed on the ceiling, directly above your heads, to ensure an enjoyable drenching. However, improving these showerheads may require regular plumbing repairs.

The Right Spray Pattern: 

The single-spray shower head is usually the cheapest option. Nowadays, shower heads come with multiple spray patterns. Spray patterns include massage, rain, rinse, power, pulsating, champagne, and combinations of these. While the pulsating and massage patterns are soothing to your body, the rinse provides an overwhelming feeling of soaking. Aside from the patterns, you must also consider the intensity of the shower head.

Water pressure: 

Most people prefer high water pressure, but a low-pressure shower head has its advantages as well. Water-saving low-pressure shower heads allow you to save on your water bills by restricting the water flow. Although they are economical, it's difficult to adjust the temperature quickly.

In contrast, high-pressure showers provide a more satisfying experience due to the rapid flow of water through their small nozzles. Plus, they're budget-friendly and offer complete value for money.

Bathroom layout: 

Before choosing the type of shower to install, evaluate the available floor space in your bathroom. A shower partition provides a great way to separate wet and dry areas within a bathroom & keep the space clean.


Buying a shower comes at a variety of prices, so it is best to establish a budget first before finalizing any decisions. Also, installing both a bathtub and a shower in one place is a cost-effective solution.


By keeping these factors in mind you will be able to narrow down your search and finally locate the ideal shower head that will instantly alleviate your troubles after a long day.
