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!

Bathtub versus Shower – Which will you Choose?

In today’s world, your bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your house, so whytub not make it luxurious and comfortable or a soothing oasis away from the outside world.  When designing or remodeling your bathroom, make sure you choose the things that you would really, really like to use every day, since according to fact, you will spend approximately 2 weeks a year in your bathroom.  Both bathtubs and showers offer benefits and disadvantages, so you need to consider your needs before deciding which one to install.

Space, safety, features and style should all be considered when making your decision.  The size of your bathroom will determine whether you install a shower or bathtub.  Safety needs to be included when you have handicapped or children in your home, for their ease of use.  Both bathtubs and showers offer different features and styles to choose from.  There are a full range of traditional and contemporary designs, including shower heads and fixtures and bathtub types.  Bathtub types can include three – wall alcove, recessed, drop-in, or freestanding styles.   Showers can be combined with the bathtub if you want the best of both worlds.

Benefits and Disadvantages of Both:

Bathtub:

Bathtubs provide a great spot for extreme relaxation.  Historically, baths have been used for their therapeutic and healing properties.  If you add the right mixture of aromatherapy bath salts to your bath, you can relax your mind and aid in rheumatic, inflammatory, and muscular ailments, as well as relieve stress, since you can relax and take time for yourself.  They help your circulation by dilating your blood vessels, which can help to relieve aches and pains and be therapeutic.  Also, by immersing yourself in a bathtub of water you can take the weight off your joints and muscles and which can be helpful for arthritis, back pain, headaches, sports injuries, and many more ailments.

Shower:

Showers are invigorating and perhaps more cleansing and generally use less water if youshower have a low-flow shower head and don’t spend much time showering.  Beside water use, showers are quick to take, they’re effective since you can wash and rinse at the same time, feel good with the water flowing over or massaging your body, and can be incorporated into your hydrotherapy treatments since you can change from hot to cold water almost instantaneously.

Regardless of which you choose, make the most of out of your bathtub and shower by pampering yourself while bathing.  Make sure you get the maximum relaxation and benefits from both by using warm water, shower/bath gels and soaps, and aromatherapy bath salts to indulge your senses.  Enjoy the most benefit from your bathing experience, no matter which method you choose, by setting the mood – turn down the lights, light a candle, and indulge in your “you” time!
