Your Complete Shower Heads Guide: Tips & Tricks

Table of Contents

Your shower is one of the most personal, private areas in the entire home. And because of that, it should be personalised to you and your preferences! There are many elements of a shower that you can change to suit you, but one of the most important are shower heads. Shower heads dictate the water flow, pressure and the overall look of your shower.

This article will outline everything you need to know about shower heads, and let you know what’s best for you.


Types of Shower Heads

Most heads can be split into two categories: overhead and handheld. Overhead showers can be further categorised based on how they are connected to the shower, either on the ceiling (ceiling heads) or the wall (wall heads). Things like rain showerheads fall under this type, and usually come in square or circular shapes.

Handheld showers are typically connected via a hose and are popular for their flexibility and reach. Most handhelds have features which allow you to adjust the water volume, flow and pressure.


Which One is Better?

There’s no real answer as to what’s better; it’s all about you and your preference! As we mentioned, handheld shower heads are very versatile, able to directly target different parts of your body. Overheads on the other hands, provide a more complete, all-encompassing experience – especially if they are large in diameter or have adjustable flows. They can also be further customised in the forms of shower rails, which allow you to adjust the height of the showerheads for different people – great for large families.


How to Change Shower Heads

If you’ve made the decision to swap out your current shower head for a new one, you’ll need to know how to change them. Luckily, doing so is very straightforward.

Simply unscrew the old, and screw in the new! For more complex products, be sure to read any manuals or guides that come with it. There’s no need to call a plumber to enjoy your brand new shower head.

How to Clean Shower Heads

When cleaning shower heads, it’s best to keep it simple. Warm, soapy water and a sponge or microfiber cloth are the best way to keep your head shiny and clean. Try to avoid harsh cleaners as much as possible. Not only do they ruin their finish, but they can also affect the quality of water that comes out of your shower.
