Product: Rainfall Showerheads

We have had several homeowners recently opt to choose a rainfall showerhead as an additional feature in their bath remodel. Like you, many homeowners desire to make their bathroom into a place to relax and unwind. While they have become a huge trend for bathroom renovations, is it the right feature for you? Let us dig in deeper to both the pros and the cons of the trendy rainfall showerheads.



They are incredibly aesthetically pleasing and give the feel that you are relaxing under the rainfall. The steady stream of water created a very calming environment.

A Gentler Showering Experience

Rainfall showerheads have a bigger surface area than standard showerheads. This increase in the surface area makes the water pressure less intense than a normal showerhead creating a therapeutic showering experience.

Full Coverage

The width, stream, and positioning of the rainfall showerhead make it so the water can provide full body coverage. This might be important to you if you are sick of having to rotate to rinse part of your body in the shower.

Easy to Clean

Most rainfall showerheads come with anti-clog features, equipped with rubberized nozzles. This makes for easy and hassle-free cleaning.



The bigger size of the showerhead can be seen as a con by some homeowners. It will take up more space in your shower and that might not be an option depending on the size of your bathroom.

Less Water Pressure

If you are someone who loves showing with a lot of water pressure, rainfall showers might not be for you.


Rainfall showerheads are more of a luxury and because of that, they are priced like a luxury. You can expect to pay a couple of hundred dollars for a sturdy and reliable rainfall showerhead. They are also known to use more water than a standard showerhead which could increase your water bill.

Potential Installation Issues

The plumbing might cause some setbacks in your rainfall showerhead dreams. You may even need to increase the size of the pipe from the source to get your desired water pressure.

Rainfall showerheads can be a great addition to your home. The decision to install one is solely up to you and your preferences. We hope that this helped you understand your options more and learn a little bit about the ins and outs of a rainfall showerhead.
