Classic Luxury showers

Rainfall? High-pressure? Low-flow?

Taking a shower might be an everyday occurrence but your shower experience doesn’t have to be.

Choosing the correct showerhead can take your experience from boring to blissful.

Environmental Impact

Are water restrictions in place where you live? If they are, it’s important to consider the flow rate of the showerhead you’re buying. Aim for a showerhead with a low flow rate of 1.75 or 1.8 gallons per minute (GPM). If you enjoy long showers, this is also a good eco-friendly option.

Water Pressure

If there are no water flow restrictions in your region, you can decide if you want a high-pressure head or not. The market offers various water pressure options, ranging from variable-pressure shower heads to high-pressure ones with a flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute (GPM).

Spray Pattern

What’s your preference: a gentle, misting spray or a focused, massaging one? Perhaps you prefer a wide spray shower head to maximise water coverage. Keep your preferred spray pattern in mind when deciding on a shower head.


It’s also important to keep the style of showerhead in mind that will work best for your needs: fixed, handheld, dual or rain? 

A fixed showerhead is budget-friendly and great for a small shower while handheld showerheads offer greater flexibility, allowing you to adjust the pattern or direction of water spray. Rain showers provide a gentle, steady flow and cover a large area – it’s perfect for creating an at-home spa experience. Dual showerheads, meanwhile, come with one fixed shower head and one hand-held shower head – offering you the best of both.

Showerhead Mount

It’s also important to consider the placement of your showerhead within your shower space. Will you use a wall-mounted shower arm or an overhead one? Do you require a shower bar or extender? Factor in these details when selecting a shower head, ensuring it’s compatible with your mounting setup.

Showerhead Filters

A lot of urban areas include chlorine in their water treatment to disinfect it. While chlorine is vital for clean drinking water, it can be harsh on your hair and skin, stripping away natural oils and leading to dryness, itchiness, and lacklustre hair. If you’ve experienced these effects, it might be worth looking into a filtered shower head or a universal shower head filter that can fit any shower head.


The material your showerhead is made out of is nearly as crucial as its functionality. Nowadays, numerous shower heads are crafted from lightweight, affordable plastic with metallic finishes. While they mimic metal’s appearance, they don’t offer the same durability and can deteriorate over time. In contrast, all-metal shower heads are typically sturdier and less prone to wear and tear.

Finish and Style

In the past, the standard was a simple chrome showerhead. Although many homes still embrace this timeless style today (and rightfully so!), there’s now a plethora of finishes and styles available for shower heads. When selecting the perfect shower head for your home, take into account your bathroom’s other fixtures and accessories.
