Top 5 Shower Heads
Welcome to GetMojo, we do the research so you don’t have to! In this video, we’re offering our picks for the 5 best shower heads on the market.
There’s nothing quite like a good shower at the end of a long day. But as you no doubt know, all shower heads aren’t created equally. But which shower head is right for you? Well, to help you decide, we’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.
The Front Runner
Kohler Forte Shower Head (22169-G-CP)
If you like to feel completely enveloped by your shower, then this Kohler model will definitely be of interest. Praised by everyone from Wirecutter to Goodhousekeeping for its intensity and ability to create large, soft water droplets, this shower head is available in numerous different finishes, and is easily adjustable, thanks to its convenient brass ball joint. Aside from the aforementioned key water setting of this shower head, this model also offers fine spray and heavy massage settings for added versatility.
High Sierra 1.5 GPM High Efficiency Low Flow Shower Head
This model may only have one setting - which is characterised as heavy and aerated - but its lack of extra options pays off in its incredibly low price. Ultimately, this affordable single nozzle shower head is for those who want to shop on a budget, and save money in the long run, thanks to its eco-conscious low flow of just 1.5 gallons per minute. It looks slick too, with a sturdy metal construction that’s available in a series of sleek finishes.
The Rain Shower
Moen Adjustable Spray Shower Head (S6320)
For those seeking that luxury spa-like rainshower experience, look no further. This large eight-inch diameter shower head boasts two impressive settings - one that offers a relaxing, large-coverage rainshower, and one that delivers a relaxing massage. You can easily toggle between these modes too, thanks to the shower head-mounted lever. It may be on the pricier side, but this model offers a more immersive experience - plus it looks really high-end, regardless of which finish you choose.
Delta Faucet H2Okinetic In2ition 2-in-1 Dual Hand Held Shower Head (58480-PK)
Having a fixed shower head is one thing, but what about having a detachable one? Well, Delta Faucet has you covered. As well as boasting five different spray options, this model’s headlining feature is its detachable head, which sits in the center on the main shower head, magnetically attached. Simply undock it, and you’re good to go. And both shower heads can be used at the same time, allowing for greater flexibility - and coverage - when showering.
Before we reveal our final pick, here are a few other great shower heads that are worth a mention:
Waterpik Twin Turbo Handheld Shower Head (DSL-653)
AquaDance Premium High Pressure Rainfall Combo
RainSpa High-Pressure Multi-Setting Rainfall Combo (2827)
The Smart One
American Standard Spectra eTouch
For those who like to introduce sophisticated tech wherever possible in the house, American Standard has this fancy, touch-activated Spectra eTouch shower head. As well as offering a stop/start function, this product’s wall-mounted touch panel allows the user to seamlessly toggle between the shower’s four different spray modes. You can even opt to touch the shower head itself to change the spray modes, if you find that more convenient. Add to that its neat and tidy design, and you’ve got one of the coolest shower heads on the market.
So which shower head should you choose? Well, some people can become a little obsessed with finding a shower head that offers as many water flow modes as possible. And variety is indeed great, but in practice, most will be happy with one solid setting, so just be sure to pay attention to the gallons per minute water flow figure to ensure that that setting is heavy enough. Our advice: try and get a shower head that offers at least 1.5 GPM.
