What makes the best shower heads?

Some people like to bath, while others prefer to have a shower. If you are a shower person, you will probably like a certain type of shower. Unlike having a bath, there are a number of things that you could consider when picking your shower. Read on for advice on what makes the best showers heads.

Shower heads

There are a number of different shower heads that you can buy. You can buy some that give a soft rain shower, those which give a powerful force of water, or those that have the ability to do both whenever necessary. You can also buy shower heads that have extra functions, like massage sprays. These are extremely good for those with joint pain, or those who play sports and need massages after they've have played their matches.

The basics

Before you start picking out shower heads, think about what you need. Do you have a shower unit that is fixed to your wall or one that is attached to a mixer tap. This will determine which sorts of shower heads you should consider to buy. The type of shower that you have should then, be considered. Do you have a double door shower cabin or do you have a unit over your bath which requires a shower curtain. This will determine the sort of unit that you can buy, depending on its power and output.

Personal to you

Consider what it is that you are looking for. Are you looking for a cheap shower or something a bit more expensive? Do your friends have a shower that you admire? Is there a company that you like. For example, Kohler Mira Excel showers are both popular and affordable and are used in homes, schools and within industry. Perhaps, you would like to buy a Mira 415 Ltd shower for your home. These options are completely up to you. Only you will know of your personal preferences.

Considerations

Even if you really want a powerful shower, consider the type of shower that you have and the size of your bathroom. As mentioned previously, if you have a small bathroom and have an over bath shower, this may not be possible. Also think about your utility consumption in this respect. An extremely powerful water shower head will use a lot of water and more power from the electric water mixer. Decide whether or not, a powerful shower is worth an extra monthly expense.
