Bathroom renovations involve a lot of decision-making, and one of the decisions you’ll have to make is what kind of showerhead to install. There are many different types, ranging from the typical wall-mounted unit to massage shower jets. Some also use up more water than others.
Explore the different showerhead types to know which one fits your lifestyle and preference...
The most commonly used showerhead is the standard wall-mount showerhead. Some models feature options for adjusting the water spray. A possible downside of this type of showerhead is that it can only be moved slightly by adjusting the shower neck.
The ceiling-mount or top-mount showerhead is installed on the ceiling. The spray of this type of showerhead is reminiscent of rain, as water comes from directly overhead. Ceiling-mount showerheads come in many shapes and sizes. Some models can also be mounted flush to the ceiling, which is great for bathrooms with low ceiling heights.
Connected to the wall with a flexible tubing or hose, the hand-held showerhead is a good option for people with disability and the elderly. It’s also great for bathing kids and pets and cleaning the bathroom itself.
Showerheads installed on the wall, body sprays are great for a soothing bath experience. Install as many body sprays as you want; just be sure to install them according to your height and leave ample space between heads.
Body spray panels
You may also opt for a body spray panel, which is also installed on the wall. The experience of a body spray panel is similar to that of a whirlpool tub. It has water jets that can deliver a powerful water massage. - Aislinn Kee
