Showering is a quick and effective way to clean up in the morning before you leave for the day; showers are also less expensive and take up less room than bathtubs. Showers can also be calming since the water gently massages sore muscles as it cascades onto your body.
The shower head greatly impacts how you feel while taking a shower. The multiple spray holes in this component of the shower, which is connected to the shower arm, disperse the water’s flow. The shower head’s mounting location, spray pattern, and type significantly impact the spray’s direction, water pressure, and even where the spray impacts your showering experience.
Here are five tips for choosing the perfect shower head for your bathroom
The water supply across the nation may have high levels of minerals, chlorine, and other impurities that can dry out your skin and hair. In order to filter these contaminants as soon as they reach the home, it is normally advised to install a whole-home water softener (if you’re living abroad) or water filtration system, although this isn’t always an option. For instance, tenants of condos or apartments frequently lack access to the main water line and may have many water connections entering the unit.
By spending money on a shower head with a built-in filter to remove the impurities before the water exits the shower head, you can still solve this problem reasonably easily and continue enjoying your showers without worrying about harming your skin and hair. If selecting a shower head’s spray pattern is often motivated by preference, selecting a filtered shower head is frequently driven by necessity.
2. Spray Pattern
When you are standing in the shower, only you truly know how you prefer the water to feel. Full-panel shower items can massage your entire body with several sprayers that can be adjusted to target all the appropriate locations after a hard day at work.
Rainfall, massage, and jet spray patterns are some of the popular choices. Shower heads with massage and jet settings can also offer consumers a modest hydrotherapy experience, whereas an overhead rainfall spray can be intended for peaceful, silent relaxation.
The mount is a crucial component to take into account when selecting a new shower head. In most showers, the top of one wall has an inclined shower arm that extends, allowing the shower head to spray down into the enclosure. Although rainfall shower heads should be used with horizontal shower arms that extend over the shower, rather than being tilted down from the side, these shower arms can be used with fixed, handheld, dual, and even fixed shower heads.
Another choice resembling an overhead horizontal shower arm is a shower head positioned on the ceiling. The shower arm positioned in the ceiling is connected to the rainfall shower head, allowing the water to fall directly downwards. However, if you want a shower head hanging from the ceiling, you will need to budget for adding plumbing if it isn’t already there.
4. Energy consumption
A showerhead will use more energy the greater the water pressure it needs. In the typical Singapore household, the shower is the third-highest water-using appliance, typically dispensing 2.1 gallons (gpm) of water per minute. Ask your appliance provider for a water-saving option. That way, you won’t only save water, but also electricity.
5. Your preferred look and style
It’s easy to overlook, but the showerhead must also look appealing to you. Make sure the finish you choose complements the design of your bathroom. Although it may not seem like a big deal right now, showerheads can last long, so you might as well enjoy the one you choose!
