Showers can give you the burst of energy you need to start the day. And the right showerhead can significantly improve the satisfaction you get from showering. If you want to know how to choose the right shower head for you, read on.
How the showerhead you’re using matters
1. A showerhead’s design can improve water pressure and elevate your shower experience.
If your home has low water pressure, choosing a high-pressure showerhead can instantly upgrade your shower experience.
Unlike outdated models, there are options that provide a wider coverage area in the bathroom.
2. Switching showerheads can save water and money.
Designed to reduce the amount of water it expels, a low-flow showerhead makes your more water-efficient, reducing water heating costs.
There are also showerheads with sophisticated features that allow a more customized shower experience while conserving water simultaneously.
A modern, water-efficient showerhead design typically uses less than 2 gallons of water per minute, unlike a traditional showerhead that uses twice as much.
3. A showerhead can give your bathroom a more upscale appearance.
Bathroom renovations can be daunting and expensive. But changing or upgrading your showerhead can alter your bathing experience and modify a small bathroom without the trouble of a major renovation.
How to choose the right showerhead for you
1. Determine who’s using the shower.
Young children? Senior adults? Just you? Will your pets use the shower too? If young children will use the shower, you might want to get a hand-held showerhead. You also have to consider how easy and comfortable the shower will be for people of various heights and different needs.
2. Consider your needs and habits.
If you want to keep things simple, a wall-mounted showerhead is the most cost-efficient option. If you’re after a more relaxing experience, there are Waterfall and rain-effect shower heads to consider.
3. Make sure that your existing plumbing can accommodate the shower system you have in mind.
Aside from the measurements of the shower stall and the size of the shower arm, you also have to take into account the location of the shower, and whether or not your existing plumbing can accommodate it.
If you’re thinking of installing a top-mounted shower head, for example, be ready for extensive plumbing upgrades.
4. The type of showerhead you install greatly affects your comfort in the shower.
Conventional showerheads can’t be moved much, while hand-held showerheads can reach tricky spots. This makes the hand-held showerheads more ideal for families and pet owners.
