For many people, rain shower heads are considered to be the most sensual and elegant of all shower heads. 

When you have a rain shower head installed, it truly is like having a part of mother nature in your bathroom. 

If you’ve ever enjoyed feeling the sensation of rainfall, then you’ll love these types of shower heads.

Each unit is uniquely designed to provide the user with a relaxing rainfall experience while some of the best rain shower heads have multiple spray patterns, e.g., massager or drench

As with most shower heads, you can choose from something that’s simple or practical to a unit that’s sophisticated and stylish.

The best rain shower head will have a wider than average head which allows for a wider body coverage

Many of the smaller units can be installed directly to the existing pipe for a wall mount installation but it is usually recommended that an extended arm be used for this method of installation. 

That way the user can elevate and extend the shower head to experience more of a rainfall sensation. 

Other installation options are ceiling mounts, whether it’s a flush mount or attached to an arm extending directly from the ceiling.

Change your ordinary shower into a relaxing experience with any of the following rain shower heads:
