A good quality overhead shower
can be the simplest and most rewarding change you make towards a luxurious bathroom experience. These high-end fixtures can transform a basic shower into an invigorating spa-like affair that can set the tone for your day ahead and leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready for action.
Flow Rates and Pressure
The flow rate of water to the shower head determines the pressure it produces. You can choose a higher gpm (gallons per minute) for more powerful, invigorating showers or a lower gpm for a gentler, more relaxing experience.
Shower heads, handles and valve controls come in a range of finishes including chrome, brushed nickel and polished brass. These finishes have a high-end look but can require frequent upkeep to hide spots and fingerprints.
Height and Coverage
Depending on the size of your bathroom, you'll need to think about how much room is available for an overhead shower system. A large bathroom may need a larger system than a small one, and a low ceiling can reduce the space an overhead shower can take up.
Overhead rain showers are designed to be ceiling mounted or wall mounted and feature a large flat head that hangs directly over the user's head. These systems deliver a powerful yet gentler shower experience because the water falls straight down without needing to be manipulated by hand or stooping.
