The Right Shower Head According to Experts

The Right Shower Head According to Experts

Showerheads are the type of appliance you never think about until you do. Then, when you need one, you realize you’ve fallen into a hidden world of water pressure and sizing and functionality. Consider us your tour guide in that frightening new world. When you’re picking out a new showerhead, here’s what you should look at first.

Type

The National Pipe Thread size is standardized in the US. That means the fitting connecting a shower head to the “elbow” will almost always be the same size–½ inch NPT. You shouldn’t have to worry about a shower head fitting onto your shower elbow.

There are numerous types of showerhead. Start your search by finding out which kind you want and/or which would work best in your particular shower. Here are the most common kinds of showerhead:

Wall-mounted Single-head: The simple bowl-shaped head that usually attaches directly to the shower elbow. The main advantage of the single-head showerhead is its simplicity and flexibility. - Punctual Plumber Dallas

    Hand-held Showerheads

    Thanks to the additional reach and control provided by a three- to six-foot hose, a hand-held shower can help you perform multiple tasks, from bathing kids or the dog to washing your hair to rinsing down your shower enclosure. Handheld showers are wall mounted and can be loaded with extras. - Spruce

    Ceiling (or “Rain”) 

    These heads come affixed to a long, “L” or “P” shaped arm that attaches to the shower elbow. The arm positions the showerhead directly over the showering person. Punctual Plumber Dallas

    Pressure

    Different showerheads require different psi for effective flow. If your home doesn’t have enough water pressure for the head you choose, water won’t be able to flow with enough strength or consistency to be effective.

    RainLuxe 12 Inch Shower Head 

    Has excellent performance at high or low water pressure. Durably built, better than any hotel shower head for high volume and long-lasting, yet at a fraction of the cost of a shower panel or other rain shower heads.

    Energy Consumption

    The more water pressure a showerhead requires, the more energy it will use. Showers are the third-highest water using appliance in the average US home. The average showerhead uses 2.1 gallons per minute (gpm).

    Look

    It’s easy to forget, but you gotta like the way the showerhead actually looks! Be sure to pick a finish that matches your bathroom’s decor. It may not sound particularly important now, but showerheads last awhile; you may as well actually like the one you end up with!

    The Rainluxe chrome shower head finish matches your other bathroom shower fixtures and has a swivel joint to aim the head to where you need it most. Made of rust-free materials, your shower head will look good for years to come.

    If you want to create a new look in your bathroom, but want to avoid a complete interior overhaul, consider tweaking your color scheme and decor. A few simple changes can create an entirely new vibe without going over budget. Design a bathroom with colors and styles that truly speak to you. Since it’s the room you spend time getting ready in the morning and preparing for bed, it’s important to create a space the boosts your energy and offers you a quiet respite from your busy schedule.

    Give your bathroom—and every morning—a big, bright energy boost. This cerulean blue is a refreshing color that can be balanced out with neutral features, such as the white and gray shades in the cabinetry, rug, and sink. These crisp blend of colors help to create a dynamic bathroom with a soft, rejuvenating side.

    Even if you don’t have large windows scaling your bathroom wall, you can introduce your fondness for nature in other ways. Stone or wood will emit a natural look, while mint green and white colors will ensure a refreshing feel. Clean lines will help reiterate the modern theme you’re going for—these square sinks work well in a rectangular shaped room and panel windows.

    Adding color to a bathroom doesn’t need to be bright or showy. Choose a light mint color for a lush backdrop. If you pair this with white countertop and cabinets, you’ll have a clean look that lets you play with the floor design. Simple colors also give you the flexibility to accessorize with other pops of color in the guest baskets, towels, and decor.

    Neutral colors, like an ash gray, give your bathroom a soothing sentiment. Pairing your grey walls with whites and browns will offer a welcomed contrast. For fully luxurious touch and to complete the look, install a freestanding tub, separate shower and vanity table.

    Blend a rustic look with a more modern shower, double-faucet tub and linoleum flooring. Play with natural tones of the woods by using oat and brown-colored paint to round out the room. White and silver accessories bode well with this rich color scheme, so the natural browns can take center stage.

    You can begin your day in a serene bathroom by choosing a soft sky blue color for your walls and backsplash tile. To balance out the blue, white cabinets and countertops will preserve the tranquil look. Don’t forget to also consider upgrading the material of your faucet, shower heads and light fixtures—the touches of stainless steel help carry out the clean look.

    To create a clean and refreshing yet luxurious feel, design your bathroom using a pale pistachio paint with delicate white complements. Make sure to add small accents to the color scheme with hints of darker greens and golds. Don’t forget to elevate the relaxation vibe by putting candles and bubble bath on display.

    Don’t be shy to show your creative side when it comes to color. This mix of tangerine orange and white bathroom creates a space bursting with flavor. You can paint your favorite design or use wallpaper to mimic this look, but to balance it out, make sure to contrast the upper portion with solid-colored wainscotting below the chair rail.
