zaa98746_169First set a budget. Shower heads start at about $10 for the most basic to over $1,000 for some very elaborate models with all kinds of features. The average good quality shower head goes for about $150.00. Find a range that suits you. Consider the cost of installation in your budget.

You should decide on the finish of the shower head next. Brass, pewter, stainless steel, bronze, chrome, gold, platinum, and nickel finishes are all widely used and available. It really just depends on the tastes you have, as well as the design of the room. If you are getting a shower-tub combo, you will want to match the finish on both the shower head and the tub faucet. There are also combination shower head/faucets already made for this reason.

They are especially good for bath time if you have young children or pets. They are also convenient for the elderly or the disabled, for easy access and control.

Features some shower heads include are full spray, massage, rain, mist, and jet sprays. Some of them have more than one of these, allowing you to change between them. There are also environmentally friendly models that use less water.
