Choosing the Right Handheld Shower Head

Choosing the Right Handheld Shower Head

Choosing the right handheld shower head can be overwhelming, especially with the wide variety of features and styles available. Deciding what design best accommodates and improves the user’s experience is crucial when choosing a handheld shower head for your home. Don’t know where to start? Here is a product guide to help you determine which benefits, accessibility features, and style are best to meet your needs.

Consider Key Features

Our handheld shower heads offer several key features to create the best shower experience. First, the multi-spray settings allow the user to customize their shower experience to their own comfort and needs. Most units feature anywhere from 1-5 spray settings. For example, our 5 Function, 3 Way Handheld Shower Head Kit offers 5 spray functions with a combination of bubble, spray, and massage. These mode adjustments are great for a user struggling with muscle aches or pains, or someone who simply enjoys a range of water pressure.

Flow rate (typically measured in GPM, or gallons per minute) is another feature to weigh when shopping for a shower head. This metric measures how much water is released from your shower head in a given amount of time. It does not affect water pressure but can help reduce water waste. Many of our handheld shower heads have an eco-friendly flow rate of 1.8 GPM, optimizing consumption and saving you money while still offering ample water coverage.

Allow for Accommodations

There are several other important features to consider when creating an optimal shower experience, including hose length and flexibility. For users with limited mobility, a long shower hose that provides plenty of movement will help widen their range of motion. Our 3 Function Handheld Shower Head with Slide Bar includes a 60 inch flexible hose for maximum accessibility, allowing the user to maneuver the shower head and move around with ease.

Placement of the handheld shower head within the shower or tub is important to keep in mind, especially if the intended user struggles with grip or mobility. Several of our handheld shower heads include brackets that attach onto a traditional overhead shower arm or exist as standalone units. They are designed to be compatible with a variety of plumbing fixtures. The Ponte Giulio Magnetic Wall-Mounted Hand Shower includes a magnetic shower head that can be placed anywhere in your bathroom, creating an seamless shower experience by taking it on and off the wall easily.

The ease of installation is an important consideration as well. Each one of our handheld shower heads offer easy do-it-yourself installation with little to no tools, designed for simple and quick set up. Be sure to investigate the connection type before purchasing, especially if you plan on installing on your own.

Identify Your Style

There is no need to sacrifice quality for style in the bathroom. With a variety of finishes and shapes available, it is easy to find a shower head that complements your home’s aesthetic. First, decide the shape of your ideal shower head face, often round or square. Then, opt for a finish that matches existing bathroom hardware. Our handheld shower heads are available in common household finishes, including polished chrome, brushed nickel, and white. They are the perfect combination of function and design for an easy shower upgrade.
