Stepping into your shower should be one of the best parts of every day. And, the right shower head can make it even better. Whether you’re looking for a Zen experience to wind down or an invigorating way to start your day, a shower head swap is a quick and easy DIY project that can enhance the look—and feel—of your entire bathroom.
Shower Head Types
Different shower head types have different installations and plumbing requirements. Your bathroom layout, existing pipe structure, and desired outcome will all help determine the best shower heads for your space.
Standard: Standard shower arms have a straightforward design that extends from the wall and angles downward.
Offset: Offset shower arms provide additional headroom while you rinse. They extend out from the wall and curve upward. Their shapely design also brings a unique look to any shower setup.
Extended: Extended shower arms move your shower experience further away from the wall. A separate shower head attaches to the arm to deliver a rainfall showering experience.
If you’re putting together an outdoor shower oasis, you’ll want to shop specifically for outdoor shower heads. Rather than a separate piece from the rest of the shower, you will commonly find these available as a sleek, one-piece shower panel. Designed to withstand the elements, outdoor showers are made of highly durable materials and finishes that will last for years to come. Outdoor shower heads are available in a variety of designs, but are most often found in a rainfall style to fully encompass that experience of being at one with nature.
Ceiling-mount showers hang directly over your head. This style is installed from your ceiling, allowing the water to flow evenly over your body for a true rainfall effect. Installing a ceiling-mount shower is more involved than standard shower installations, so if you’re seeking a rain shower head, consider carefully between ceiling-mount and wall-mount options.
Wall-mount shower heads extend directly from your wall via an arm or flange. Arm styles come in a variety of styles, with standard, offset, and extended among the most popular.
Shower Head Materials & Finishes
You see your shower head every day, so the finish you choose will enhance your overall bathroom aesthetic. Additionally, consider how different finish materials will wear and require cleaning.
Porcelain is an excellent choice for a vintage-style bathroom. This ceramic material is usually seen in custom makeovers where a classic look is desired.
Shower heads can have a complete finish or contain finished accents on their collar or along the spray patterns where the water comes out. Finishes include brass, polished brass, brushed nickel, chrome, oil rubbed bronze, polished nickel, and stainless steel.
Due to its durability, most high-quality shower heads are made of brass. A metal that resists rust and corrosion, brass is a hassle-free material because it rarely needs replacing.
Stainless steel is low maintenance and easy to clean. It is naturally resistant to stains and rusting and is light yet durable. Stainless steel retains its luster over time and can withstand extreme temperatures.
Shower Head Styles
The shape of a shower head determines whether it will coordinate well with a traditional, transitional, or modern bathroom. Selecting the right shower head is just the beginning of transforming your bathroom into a space that reflects your personal style.

If you’re seeking a handheld showerhead, or a detachable showerhead with hose, you can find those in the hand showers category.
Clean lines make square shower heads ideal for a contemporary bathroom. This style delivers a rainfall experience because of its wide, flat shape. Similar to square shower heads, rectangular shower heads deliver a rainfall experience and have a modern look.
Round and oval shower heads are the most versatile, style wise. Modern or classic looks can be achieved, depending on the design.
Uniquely shaped shower heads bring visual interest to your space and are great for custom projects. From cylindrical to trumpet-shaped, these styles have personality and charm.
Shower Head Nozzle Types
Shower heads have varying nozzle types, and their differences go beyond aesthetics. Generally, shower heads will have one of three nozzle types: raised nozzles, silicone nozzles, or flat nozzles.
Raised nozzles create a streamlined, powerful downward spray. This high pressure shower head may have removable nozzles that make them easy to soak in a cup of warm water or vinegar to remove any sediment buildup.
Silicone nozzles feature small nozzles that are made of silicone rather than brass or plastic. The rubber shower nozzles are clog-resistant, so they require very little maintenance aside from general cleaning.
This type of shower head has a flat face that creates a linear look for bathrooms with a minimalist aesthetic. It makes general cleaning a breeze with the use of a damp cloth or soft paper towel to wipe away buildup.
