7 Tips for Choosing a Rain Showerhead

A Rain Showerhead is one of the best ways to ensure that your whole body is covered while taking a bath and provides a great look to your bathroom too.

Rain Shower

Want to learn a few more reasons why you should consider a rain showerhead? Here are a few advantages of using a rain showerhead at home:

1. Better Coverage

Since a rain showerhead is designed in a way that it lies directly above your head, it provides you a better shower and coverage than a standard showerhead.

Usually, a rain showerhead comes in a square size and measures around 8×8 inches, it also has a radius of only 2 inches as compared to a standard showerhead. Since it provides you more coverage, you are bound to enjoy more while bathing and there is no need to adjust the shower head while bathing anymore.

All you have to do is stand still beneath the rain showerhead, no need to move side from side anymore too to get your body parts wet.

2. Different water flow rates

If you consider a good high-quality rain shower head, then you would also have options for different water flow settings. You have an option to use a higher water spray if you want a good strong shower and you can use a lower spray setting if you are more conscious about the water wastage.

3. Looks attractive

It comes in different shapes and sizes and looks better than a standard showerhead. So, if you get a showerhead with an elegant style and finish then you can easily enhance the look of your bathroom.

4. Factors to Consider when choosing a Rain Showerhead

So, now that you know about the advantages of having a rain showerhead, let’s talk about factors and features that one must consider when selecting a good rain showerhead for themselves. Here are a few things that you need to consider:

5. Determine the Showerhead Size

The size of your rain showerhead will determine the coverage of your showerhead. If you select a larger sized rain showerhead, then you would obviously have much more coverage.

If you are conscious about wasting water, then you can consider a rain shower head which would cover your body perfectly without wasting water. An 8×8 inches rain showerhead is usually an ideal size.

6. Consider the appropriate Style and Finish

Rain Showerheads come in different styles and finishes which makes it more attractive and appealing than a standard showerhead. So, you can buy a rain showerhead which complements your bathroom and makes it look more appealing.

Style and Finish

If you have chrome bathroom accessories, then make sure that you buy a chrome finish rain showerhead to complement your bathroom.

7. Consider the Water Flow Configuration

As discussed earlier, a rain showerhead includes different water flow settings which makes it more convenient to use. However, if you don’t require a lot of water flow settings, then you can simply use a rain showerhead with a single water flow configuration. You can also look for a showerhead with multiple spray options if you would like to have the option of using different water flow settings.

5 Features to consider when buying a Kitchen Faucet

Are you looking for a good-quality Kitchen Faucet for your Kitchen? Not sure what you are looking for exactly? Well, that is not a problem because everyone faces this problem in the start. You are new to the whole Kitchen Faucet market and you aren’t sure what things to look out for.

That is why we have prepared this list of features that you need to consider when trying to find a good a Kitchen Faucet for your kitchen:

Easy Installation and Repair

The first thing you need to ask yourself is whether you are going to install or repair your Kitchen Faucet yourself? If the answer is yes, then it is crucial that you select a Kitchen Faucet that is easy to install and replace. This is easy to find because most new faucets are designed so that they can be installed quickly and automatically. However, it is important to find a Kitchen Faucet which comes with detailed instructions so that it will become easier for you to understand and install it in your kitchen.

Sinkhole Configuration

The next thing that you need to consider when buying a Kitchen faucet is the number of holes available in your sink.

This is important because if you buy a kitchen faucet which requires 3 sinkholes but your sink has only 1 or 2 holes then you won’t be able to install the kitchen faucet. So, make sure that you check your sink configuration and then buy a kitchen faucet which is compatible with it.

Number of Handles required

The next feature to consider is the number of handles that you require in your Kitchen Faucet. If you want to multitask and want to use just one hand to control your faucet’s water flow and temperature, then a single handle kitchen faucet is ideal for you. However, if you are looking for a kitchen faucet with separate handles for hot and cold water, then a double handle kitchen faucet would be the right one.

Sprayer or no Sprayer

Another feature to consider is the sprayer that comes with a lot of kitchen faucets. A sprayer is useful for people who want to access more sink area.

Kitchen Sprayer

You have  3 options available if you are looking for a kitchen faucet with a sprayer, i.e., a pull-out kitchen faucet, pull-down kitchen faucet and a kitchen faucet with side sprayer.

Water Filtration System

One of the most important feature to consider when buying a Kitchen Faucet is the water filtration system. A water filtration system will make sure that you get clean and germ-free water whenever needed and will be really helpful in reducing diseases that are caused due to impure water.

A lot of kitchen faucets now use the in-built water filtration systems and provide you with clean water to use. So, make sure that you choose a kitchen faucet which comes with this technology.

So, now that you know all about the features that you need to look out for, why not go and find the perfect Kitchen Faucet for your home?
