Showerheads – More Troublesome Than You Think!

A few months ago, I replaced my showerheads for my two bathrooms. It was a real hustle before I could make a purchase. Choosing the best showerheads that everyone in my home would be happy with was not a walk along the path. I made several trips to the local hardware stores asking questions, examining the available showerheads, but none of the products seemed to meet my family’s expectations.

Factors we considered

Before I started shopping for showerheads for my two bathrooms, we first sat down as a family to decide on the following factors:

Budget

I discussed with everyone in my home the amount of money I was ready to spend on our bathroom showerheads. This made my search a bit easier. Narrowed down, things become much easier and better.

Spray style

We discussed and agreed on the spray style that all of us wanted. Even though preferences differed, I was able to ensure that we agreed on a common spray style.

Types of bathroom showerheads

We agreed that we were going to get showerheads with handy adjustable features that can allow for the selection of desired jets’ intensity and spray pattern.

Here are some of the showerhead types that we looked at.

Rain showers

These large and flat showerheads are flat and are usually fixed above the user. They direct the spray straight to the user. This was actually the first type we looked at.

Body sprays

These types have several spray heads, and they are usually integrated into the walls of the shower.

Hand-held showerheads

We also looked at these types and somehow considered them because they can be used to wash both hair and hard-to-reach places effectively.

Other showerhead types I looked at include dual and multiple showerheads, colored lighted showers and single-head spray showers.

Reviews of the top rated showerheads

With the help of other family members, I did a thorough research on the internet and came up with the top rated showerheads that I believed were everyone’s best bet.
