Advice From a Pro: How to Select the Best ShowerheadYou may be surprised to learn how many different kinds of showerheads are available on the market today. From no frills and handheld models to aerated and lighted versions, you can find just about anything you’re looking for. That said, not every showerhead is appropriate for the design of your bathroom or existing plumbing.

The following information will help you to select the best showerhead for your bathroom and your lifestyle.

Showerhead Position

If you don’t want to have to move your existing plumbing, you’ll probably need to select a standard wall-mounted showerhead. This is the easiest change to make because all you have to do is unscrew your existing showerhead and screw in the new one. There are many different standard wall-mounted showerheads to choose from that come with a variety of features.

If you’re willing to move the plumbing, you can take advantage of the new and popular overhead showerheads that soak you with a deluge of water from above. Overhead showerheads are suspended from the ceiling, either pendant-style or flush with the ceiling.

The Handheld Option

Handheld showerheads are usually located in the traditional wall-mounted position, but they offer much more flexibility. With a handheld showerhead, you can easily bathe kids, wash the dog or thoroughly rinse your hair. These showerheads are great for a family bathroom.

Body Sprays and Spa Shower Panels

If you want to create a spa experience in your home, consider installing multispray shower panels in your bathroom. These panels are usually installed in vertical rows on opposite walls. The crisscrossing water pattern gives you a massage as you shower and imitates hydrotherapy spa treatments. This option requires extensive plumbing work, but it can be well worth it.
