Using a rain shower head in your bathroom is even more fun than it looks. Aside from the usual compliments from your friends who get to see the beauty of the inside of your shower room, you will actually feel its benefits the moment you go under the steady stream of water pouring on your head and body, lightly and refreshingly.
Compared to the traditional shower nozzles that use high pressure to drive water right to your body, sometimes hurting you along the way, rain shower heads don’t push water out, they let it fall. There is a very big difference between the two. For the ones who want their shower hard and strong, you might not get the satisfaction that you are looking for in a rain head, but if you want to experience that old feeling of playing in the rain again, this new way to shower is for you.
For those of you who already have one, I am sure you are having fun using it. These tips might help you add more zest to your showers. For those who do not have one yet, these might help convince you to try one soon.
- Correct Positioning – To maximize the effect of your rain shower head, you must position it directly above your head so that you can maximize the feeling that it could give you. Some shower heads are still attache. If your showerhead is mounted like this, you might want to consider buying an extension arm for your rain shower head. Keeping the shower right above your head will give you the impression of raindrops directly falling on your head.
- Correct Head Size – Size does matter. The smaller the rain shower head diameter, the more water pressure you can get from it. You can start with 6 inch heads, and work your way up to a large rain shower head measuring up to 12 inches with less pressure and more coverage. Will give you the true feeling of playing in the rain.
- Focus on the holes – Little attention is given to the holes of the shower head, but this is a big factor affecting the quality of your water distribution. There are rain shower heads that have punched holes as water openings. If the water pressure is really low, this could make the water clump up just like water in the faucet thereby defeating the purpose of having a rain shower. The best rain shower heads are those that have individual holes that are precisely made that will enable jets of water to come out and not just drip over. This will ensure that the water is delivered outward in a perfect manner just like the actual rain even if water pressure is low.
- Aesthetics – Whether we deny it or not, aside from functionality, we are also interested in the overall look our showerhead can give to the entire bathroom. There are ceiling mount rain shower heads, rectangular shaped ones, and even irregular shaped ones to give that fun or visually interesting look.
There are a lot of choices on the market and you have endless options to choose from. Work with your imagination and picture what would look the best in your bathroom. One thing is for sure, the feeling of satisfaction and endless fun while playing in the rain can be within your reach whenever you want it.
