Shower Heads

After a long day at work one of the first things people look forward to is a nice relaxing shower.

There is just something about the experience of pressurised water hitting the body that can sooth stress and pent up energy. Are you tired of having a shower that produces a weak sprinkle?

It is probably that the shower head has probably been selected by way of price or looks or as an afterthought to the cubicle or tiling when a bathroom is being planned.

Tip: take the time to visit the showrooms of a dedicated bathroom retailer. They will have a wet area with a range of shower heads and you will be able to try a range of shower heads to see the individual spray patterns to ensure you get the one you want.

The team at Style Plus look at some of the design planning essentials for a bathroom renovation:



Shower Heads

Hand Held

Hand Held

The most common shower head. Attached to a length of hose that allows versatility of movement for better interaction with, and spray on, those harder to reach areas that soap likes to cling to.

The directed spray from this type of shower head can be fantastic. They are great for bathing kids and pets that are closer to the shower floor. These shower heads also make cleaning that much easier.

Body Spray

Body Spray

If you luxuriate in the shower, one shower head may not be enough for you. Add extra body sprays for the perfect solution.

These are smaller than a standard shower head and are placed on the walls of the shower in your chosen positions at multiple heights. They spray in multiple directions and flows to hit multiple areas. Some come with as many as twelve settings including mist, massage, and pulsing, wide and narrow stream.

You can also buy a single unit that incorporates the additional heads.

Body Spray
Rain Head

Rain Head

Increasingly popular, rain shower heads are large heads either mounted on the ceiling or extending above the head by way of a plumbing pipe running up and over.

They spray a good quantity of water in a calmer fashion than spray showers. The heads not only create the feeling of standing out in a warm tropical rain storm, they are super calming and stress relieving.

Combination

If you enjoy the experience of a rain shower but don’t want to get your hair wet with every shower then a combination is the way to go. This provides both a rain head and a hand held shower giving you the best of both worlds.

Tip: You can amp up the experience with added LED lighting which changes through colours as you shower. This is becoming more and more popular and with more ready availability the cost is coming down to a general consumer level.
