How to Shop For The Best Shower Head

 

Are you remodeling your bathroom? Did you move into a place with an old shower head that barely works? Is your shower head too low for a tall family member? Well, then it's time to find the best shower head! If you've done any research to this point, you're probably feeling a bit overwhelmed. 

Before you even think about the best shower head for your home, you need to consider who's in your household and what their bath and shower needs might be. The best shower head isn't always the one that looks the most beautiful but rather the one that gives you the most refreshing and rejuvenating showering experience. But hey, who's to say you can't get the best of both worlds?

Let's take a look at the best shower heads for different bathrooms and find you that shower head that's going to make your family smile and leave your guests asking, "where'd you get that showerhead?"

 

The Best Shower Head for a Busy Bathroom

The Best Shower Head for a Busy Bathroom

 

If you live in a smaller home with few bathrooms, or have a bunch of kids, your bathroom is likely a high-traffic zone. It may make your inner decorator happy to have a Rain Shower Head that matches your Farmhouse style. However, it's not necessarily the best shower head for crazy bath times.

 

When you have different ages and sizes sharing a bathroom, the best showerhead will be multi-functional and easy-to-use. If you have young children, they take more tub baths, so a handheld attachment can be a life saver when it comes time to rinse shampoo out of their hair.  It also makes it quick and easy to clean the tub.

How to Choose A Master Bath Shower Head

 

Deciding on the Best Showerhead for your master bath means going through a step-by-step process. Just like we did in the other bathrooms, consider your most important showering preferences.

 

- If you're a couple, and one person loves their invigorating massage shower, then a soft Rain Shower Head isn't going to make you both happy.  

- Do you shower quickly in the morning and run out the door?  Or take a relaxing massage shower after a hard day at work?

- If you have sore muscles, thick hair, or a disability, think about what's most important in your shower head design.

 

Once you've talked over the features you'd like, then you can narrow down your options to find the best shower head design for your master bath.
