Rainfall showers are often installed for their luxurious and relaxing sprays that provide the ultimate soothing experience. However, these shower heads are particularly limited in their ability to handle other tasks like rinsing out a tub or targeting washing. The same steady downward flow that creates the sensation of stepping under a waterfall can also be detrimental when bathing. Choosing a dual shower head set that combines a rainfall shower with a hand shower is the best way to enjoy the following benefits and more.
It’s hard to tilt and direct rainfall shower heads because they’re designed to create large but slow cascade effects that fall straight down to the drain. Other shower heads are more angled and provide a more directed flow for rinsing. Adding a hand shower head, in particular, makes it easy to get thorough rinsing of hair, legs, or even pets getting washed. Hand shower heads are ideal for shaving as well since it’s easy to rinse off the hair and shaving cream without having to step under the main shower head.
Better Bathing in the Tub
Relaxing and soaking in the tub makes it worth adding this feature to the bathroom. But actually getting clean while sitting in the same water can be a little challenging. Hand shower heads with generous lengths of hoses make it easy to lay back and relax while still rinsing off with fresh flowing water. There’s no need to stand or stay under the fixed rainfall shower head if you’re tired or need to recover after a medical procedure. Using a bath stool or seat is the perfect companion to a flexible hand shower head.
Cleaning the Shower
Finally, a hand shower head is ideal for cleaning every nook and cranny of the shower enclosure or bathtub. After scrubbing down the surfaces or soaking the grout, homeowners must thoroughly rinse away any remaining cleaning products before taking their next shower. The hand shower head can be passed over every inch of the shower and tub, ensuring there’s no residue left to react with soaps and shampoos.
Don’t shy away from installing a rainfall shower head just because it’s slightly more limited in function than other types of shower heads. It’s easy enough to overcome any issues by adding a hand shower to the bathroom with a new fixture from Kingston Brass.
