For some people, the best part of staying in a luxury hotel is the fancy plumbing fixtures. Having a massaging shower head or a relaxing bathtub can make a big difference in how much you enjoy your stay away from home.

Plumbing fixtures have come a long way in the decades since indoor plumbing was introduced. There are all kinds of styles and shapes nowadays for any kind of motif or feel you like. There are a wide variety of shower heads specifically.

A hot shower is a big part of the day, whether you do it in the morning, before bed, or both. So, having a shower head that suits your style and needs is important.

Luckily, there are plenty to choose from:

  • Single spray shower head. This is your typical shower head that is found is most bathrooms. They are less expensive and don’t have as many settings or variations. The nozzle moves and the spray pattern can be adjusted, usually. Depending on the finish of the shower head, the price can range up to $50 approximately.
  • Rain shower head. These shower heads spread an equal amount of water over a wide surface area. They are very trendy as of recently and many people add them when they do a remodel. Because the same amount of water is being released over a large area, the water pressure is lower with these shower heads.
  • Handheld shower head. These shower heads are attached to the end of a long hose, making them great for households that have children or people who cannot stand in the shower. Also, having a shower head on the end of a hose makes it much easier to use as a tool for cleaning the shower.
  • Dual shower heads. Multiple shower heads means more water coming from more places. This is nice for showers that are very big, so that the person in the shower doesn’t have any area that is not getting water sprayed.
