08 July 2021

There are many varied shower head designs on the consumer market today. These designs offer a wide variety of water pressure, spray patterns and aesthetic value for bathroom decor.

From basic shower head styles to luxurious rain showers and filtered shower heads that lessen limescale and mineral deposit build-up, there is sure to be an ideal product to meet your preferences and needs.

Different Popular Showerhead Styles for You to Examine

Varied shower head designs that are currently popular for you to examine before making your choice include the following styles:

  • Adjustable Shower Heads. These basic showerheads offer a simple design, yet they have many more options than single-spray heads. Their versatility is due to their multiple spray choices. Typically, these designs have no less than three choices to select from. Some offer 12 different varieties of spray patterns.

Having multiple options for changing the spray pattern is especially helpful when you share a shower with other household members. With the mere flick of a switch, each shower user can quickly change the settings to suit their preferences and needs. These showerhead designs are quite easy to install, and they are available in a wide range of prices to comply with every household budget.

  • Rain Shower Heads. The traditional style of shower head has a short neck mounting that extends outward from the wall. However, the rain shower head design is positioned directly over your head so that the water streams straight downward like natural rainfall. Most people find this design very relaxing when taking a shower.

These showerheads are also quite elegant, adding to the overall style of your bathroom decor. There are some disadvantages to rain showers since they usually only have one or a few spray patterns and they have a low-pressure, non-massaging spray. They are also somewhat difficult to install and can be more expensive than other models.

  • Eco-Performance Shower Heads. If you want to limit your household water consumption to help preserve natural resources, this shower head is an ideal choice. As an eco-performance design, this model operates at lowered pressure levels, using less water.

This eco-friendly showerhead uses as little as 1.5 GPM of water, while traditional models typically use as much as 2.5 GPM. Using the eco-performance design, you can save eight gallons of water during an eight-minute shower. During one year of showers, you can conserve about 3,000 gallons of this vital natural resource. This style of shower head is relatively easy to install and is reasonably priced.
