Choosing the Right Shower Head for Your Bathroom

When it comes to renovating your bathroom, most people spend weeks racking their brain over paint colors, vanities, and tiles. While those are certainly important, have you ever thought about which shower head you’re going to choose? As an element that adds style and function to your bathroom, don’t be so quick to grab the first one you find.

Low-Flow Shower Head

A low-flow shower head will help you reach peak water efficiency. By using roughly 2.5 gallons per minute (compared to other heads that use roughly 5 gallons per minute) you’ll save water during a shower and see a dip in your water bill.

High-Pressure Shower Head

Is good water pressure a priority for you? If so, an aptly named high-pressure shower head may be the best choice for your bathroom. High-pressure showers have become popular over the years for a few reasons:

  • Water conservation: Don’t be fooled by the name “high-pressure.” These shower heads may not be as efficient as low-flow heads, but they do use less water than traditional shower heads.
  • Saves money: The less water you use, the more you’ll save!
  • Ultimate comfort: Low water pressure is a staple of bad showers everywhere. High-pressure heads can easily be combined with different water patterns to provide a spa-like experience right in your home.

Wall Mounted Shower Head

Wall mounted shower heads are the most popular choice among homeowners because they’re relatively inexpensive and easy to install. They’ve also come a long way in recent years and can be programmed with different water speeds and patterns.

Hand Held Shower Head

As one of the most versatile options on the market, hand held heads (try saying that three times fast) detach from the wall, making it easier to clean your hair, body, and shower walls. It’s also great for homes with children or the elderly, since it can extend to the bottom of the tub or built-in seats.
