Invest in Better Daily Shower Experience with the Right Shower Rail & Head
It should go without saying that maintaining regular body hygiene is something one has to do on a daily basis. When it comes to how seriously the different nations around the world take this, we Aussies seem to be one of the leaders. Given the fact that the shower is something you use at least once a day, it is only natural to want to invest in something both functional and appealing.
On that note, bathroom interior designers say that shower rail sets are one of the most commonly used forms of shower outlets in bathrooms all over the world. And the reason is pretty simple, shower rail sets are all in one products that consist of a shower head, a shower hose and a rail. The purpose of a shower rail is to hold the shower head while allowing it to easily slide up and down for easier use. The benefit of this is that it allows you to take a shower without having to wash your head every day (which is the case with the fixed ones) while being able to adjust the height level. Regarding design, shower rail kits are available in square, angular, traditional or luxury style.
When it comes to the shower heads itself, except for the most popular type (sliding shower head), you can also choose a fixed one. Today’s fixed and wall-mounted shower heads are nothing like the old ones as now they are available in a range of sizes, shapes and finishes and are pretty affordable. The main downside, however, is the fact that they are restricted height-wise.
Fixed overhead rain showers are another type of fixed shower heads the purpose of which is to provide exceptional shower experience. Since these shower heads are extremely big and provide a real downpour of rain, they are not so popular among women. Usually, these types of shower heads are mounted on the ceiling and are available in a large square or circular shape and come in different finishes, allowing you to choose the right one with ease. Once again, the only downside is that you will have to wash your hair too every time you hop in the shower. Since you will be dealing with a great amount of water, you’ll also need to do some plumbing upgrades.
Except for one shower head, you can also opt to install body sprays and spa shower panels in order to recreate the experience of a hydrotherapy spa treatment in your home. Generally speaking, they should be installed in vertical rows on adjacent or opposite walls in order to provide a crisscrossing water pattern for a complete body “massage”.
