Today’s showerheads offer more innovative options for cleaning, comfort, and water conservation than ever before.  Installing or changing your showerhead in your shower is one of the most economical ways to create a more pleasant and eco-friendly shower experience.  There are two basic types of showerheads:  fixed showerheads are attached to the shower arm and mounted permanently to the wall; hand-held showerheads are attached to the wall with flexible tubing, which makes it easier to maneuver the water where you want it.  These two types offer a wide variety of configurations with many different adjustable settings or spray patterns available.

When choosing the showerhead to fit your needs, keep in mind the following information:

  1. Traditional showerheads are fixed and the most affordable option available.
  2. Dual showerheads are fixed and offer wider water flow to cover a larger area, at multiple angles.
  3. Body spas and body mists are fixed strips of jets or misters that create soothing, massaging sprays with full body coverage.
  4. Overhead showerheads or rain showerheads are fixed and allow for a cascade of water to flow down from above to create a light, even distribution of the water.
  5. Slide bar showerheads are fixed and provide for a moveable mount of a vertical bar that can be moved up or down to adjust to the right height for the person in the shower.
  6. Handheld showerheads offer a wide variety of features and water flow options as well as provide the user to direct the water where it’s most needed or to concentrate the water in a specific area.
  7. Spray patterns determine the direction, range, and volume of water coming from the showerhead. There are wide varieties to choose from including full body sprays, massaging pulse sprays, power sprays, mist sprays, drenching rain sprays, and combination sprays.
  8. The material and finish of your showerhead will enhance the overall look of your shower and can be made to match the other fixtures in your bathroom. Chrome, nickel, solid color, brass, bronze, stainless steel, and mixed colors are available and provide polished, brushed, matt, satin, high gloss finishes or looks and can determine the durability, economical, and easy to clean materials.
  9. Water pressure and flow of the showerhead should be considered. Look for low-pressure showerheads as an option since they use less water but still offer a full shower experience without sacrificing the water pressure.  Many showerheads allow you to adjust the nozzle for a stronger flow when necessary.

Regardless of what you decide on, make sure you choose the best option for your lifestyle so you can enjoy your shower again!

Blomus Review

cool-lines-platinum-collection-250Blomus is a large housewares company that sells kitchen, office, bathroom accessories and products. They do not sell the hardware of any of these rooms—faucets, sinks, showers—instead they sell the other things, like tableware, bathroom mirrors, paper towel holders, organizational materials, and accessories. They are a good last stop if you have already redesigned your kitchen with new hardware and need to add the finishing touches. They serve a similar purpose to a store like Bed, Bath and Beyond, except they have a smaller selection and are much higher-end.

Is Blomus a Good Stop for Accessories?

Depending on how much you are willing to spend, Blomus could be a good stop for high quality, bathroom or kitchen accessories. They don’t sell things like table sets or shower curtains, but focus on the finishing touches to your room, like toilet brushes, soap dishes, and organizational products. They have more modern and contemporary styles, and most of their accessories like their soap dishes are stainless steel and for bathrooms or kitchens that are technologically up-to-date. This would not be a stop for someone who designed their kitchen in a more old-fashioned or traditional style.

Blomus Is a Good Choice for Some, but May be Pricy

We think Blomus is a good resource for accessories for the home, depending on your style matching with theirs. However, if you are at the end of your budget and don’t want to overspend, look elsewhere. Blomus’ soap dishes run $20-30, which seems a bit overpriced for what you are getting. Their products are not particularly unique-looking either, so you could find similar soap dishes somewhere else and for a more affordable price. Don’t get us wrong—their offerings are quite nice. But it depends on your priorities and what you are willing to spend.

Choosing the Perfect Hardware

 

Whether you are updating your kitchen or your bath, choosing the right cabinet hardware is big decision. Consider which style, shape, and material will look best in your space before you buy.

Knobs

The most popular type of cabinet hardware is the knob.  Decorative or simple in style, a cabinet knob is attached to a cabinet door or drawer with a single screw.

 

Pullsd6b321499c3134e5be9a080a24d7e0cf

Often referred to as handles, cabinet pulls serve the same function as a knob but are larger.  Unlike knobs, pulls are attached to the cabinet door with two or more screws.

Cup Pulls

Cup pulls are a popular choice for giving a space a minimalist, vintage feel. The semi-circular shape provides an easy-to-open handle for drawers.

Bail Pulls

Unlike other types of pulls, bail pulls feature a hanging handle.  The hanging handle is easily grasped and allows opening drawers with ease.

Regardless of the type of hardware you choose, they are all available in a variety of styles and finishes.  You are sure to find the perfect ones to accent your space.
