Upgrading the shower head in the bathroom

For some time now, we’ve been putting off purchasing a new shower head. Don’t ask why, it’s just one of those small things that you keep forgetting about when things like work schedule catch up to you.

With our current set up, we have to┬áput up with terrible power coming from the jets, with a single function spray that doesn’t offer much in the form of versatility.

What’s more, the design feels ancient, and whilst we have renovated the whole of the bathroom around it, it’s one of the small finishing touches that we never got round to doing. With so much currently available, including different technologies, this is something I am going to be sorting this weekend.

From what I’ve gathered to date, the top shower heads listed on the Shower HQ website include a good selection of spray functions, and give users a choice in how powerful the water jets are.

There are several well known types on the market. These include

Rain fall -which is something that offers a larger than average head with more nozzles. The idea behind it is to increase the surface area the droplets hit, giving a much fuller, washing experience.

Handheld – These are quite common in smaller households, or for people who need a versatile option to adapt to a variety of different scenarios. They usually detach from a fixed arm, and are often used by people with limited space in the bathroom.

Fixed – Standard fixed models are pretty much as described. They are fixed in one position, although they do quite often come with the ability to adjust the spray settings to match you preferences.

LED – These shower heads are more for decorative purposes, as they include water powered LED lights that shines down the jets and can actually indicate when the water is scalding hot.

Because we’ve got quite a bit of floor space available, we will probably end up going for a rainfall shower head, simply because water coverage is something we feel is important. No one wants to move around too much whilst washing, and this handles that by rinsing your whole body.

With the various other upgrades we’ve put in, like the sink, bath, and flooring, we feel that it’s really getting there. It’s far more presentable than when we first moved in, and very soon everything will be functional and up and running too.

With the other upgrades being made, I’m falling in love with our home, and feel a little proud of my work, I must say.
