If you’re looking for the best rain shower head then today might just be your lucky day because this right here is all round rain shower head with robust build, clean design and an impressive efficiency level. First things first, let us address the standard chrome finish which makes this shower head much more likely to fit with any bathroom design and give it a little bit of an appeal. Also, the design is minimalistic which is what a lot of people are looking for and the head comes in 4 different colours.
In terms of efficiency, this shower head couldn’t get any simpler. The S6320 is a two-function rain shower with an 8 inches wide shower head and that is huge. Of course, a large shower head would require a powerful flow rate but at 2.5 GPM, you simply have nothing to worry about. Hence, this Moen might not be the best rated shower head in the industry but it is definitely capable of being your best. So, perhaps you should check it out!
And from a traditionally circular rain shower head, we move to the less traditional SR SUN RISE. This right here is a unit which has accumulated an abundance of positive rain shower head reviews and we thought we should put that out there because learning from others’ experiences can save you a lot of trouble. However, we are not going to dismiss the rest of the review and just rely completely on what others think of this product. So, let’s talk details!
First things first, design should be your primary concern here because this is an all functional rain shower head same as every other unit on this list. The question which poses itself here is: are you a modern or a classic person? If the answer is modern then you have found yourself the perfect rain shower head. Also, note that the stainless steel finish gives this shower head a lot more appeal than it already has and that’s something which we all want to see in our bathrooms.
In terms of circumference, this high pressure rain shower head measures an astounding 12 inches which is not going to be far away from an actual raining experience. The large shower head is so immersive that you can close your eyes and feel the tropical thunder. Jokes aside however, this might just be the best rainfall shower head in the industry and with a 2.5 GPM flow, you’ve got no excuse but to dance under the rain.
This HotelSpa is indeed a giant! Perhaps not as big of a giant as the previously reviewed shower head but definitely way up there. HotelSpa is a firmly grounded manufacturer in the industry of shower heads and it has probably invested in every different kind of shower heads by now. In our book, nothing indicates quality as much as an increase in demand and that’s something which this brand has managed to pull off so quickly. But, what about the Giant?
The Giant is a shower head with quite the reputation and it all starts at engineering. This unit is rather different than the rest because it comes with an adjustable arm, a gigantic shower head and an intense stainless steel finish which would look good anywhere.
In terms of functionality, there is no other to put this beside “greatness”. With 100 nozzles, what would you expect? Yes, this shower head features 100 nozzles for superior water flow coverage and with a 2.5 GPM flow, you can be certain that it’s not going to get slower. Obviously, there is a lot more to this unit but you should check that out for yourself! Are you a Giant?
We anticipated that there would be another Moen on this list but boy were we wrong. Hence, here is another SR SUN RISE to your pleasing. Do not flinch however as this ranking comes as no surprise since this is one the leading brands in this specific niche and as we all know: passion pays off. So, let’s take a moment to admire the F5043.
This unit is obviously a luxury rain mixer shower head combo set but most importantly, it is a gigantic one. Before we move into functionality, let us first take a moment to appreciate the concealed installation brass shower bracket holder and brass shower mixer valve. Literally, the design of this shower head is perfectly simple and that is what most of us are looking for. But before we move on, let’s not forget the stainless steel finish which makes this unit look like a gadget from the future.
As far as efficiency goes, you can only imagine what a 10 inches wide shower head has to offer. A realistic rain fall shower experience is what sets this SRSH apart from the rest and with a solid GPM, you can worry less about running into shortage situations.
The hardest thing about creating rain shower head reviews is to be objective but it seems like every shower head makes you forget about the previous one and the Yodel is no exception. We might go as far as saying that this is the best rain shower head in the industry but at the end of the day, it all goes back to you.
This power shower head is definitely one of the best looking designs you’ll find out there and it all boils down to the sharp shape and the stainless chrome finish. Also, it is important to note that this unit harbours no plastic parts which makes it that much more robust and reliable and not to mention that it’s made entirely of stainless steel.
As far as functionality goes, it is crucial to note that the Yodel is 12 inches wide which is one hell of a rain shower experience. This is the kind of platform which will easily immerse your entire body under the endless flow of rain drops. Further, it is amazing how you can easily remove any of the nozzles manually to unclog it whenever and if ever that happens. So, wanna give it a shot?
Don’t worry, this time we did bring you a different rain shower head by a different brand. No need to be grateful, just doing our job. The DreamSpa definitely one of the few rain shower heads on this list which actually comes with a hand held shower and that is always a nice touch. Indeed, you might really desire that rain fall experience but trust me, sooner or later, you will wish you had a handheld unit nearby.
Initially, the first thing that catches your eye when looking at this model is the minimalistic design and the clean chrome finish. This indeed, is one of the few luxuries that most of us can still savour because there is nothing that feels better than a simple shower head with a simple installation process and simple functionality.
Speaking of which, in terms of functionality, this unit is no different to any of the previously reviewed shower heads on this list. In fact, the only difference might be that the DreamSpa is slightly smaller than the others. At 9 inches however, you are not going to be missing on much since you can still achieve the exact same immersive experience with a little less water wasted. All in all, this is a solid combo shower which definitely deserves a loving home.
There is a little bit of a difference between every shower head we reviewed already and this one. Alright, we lied, there is a huge difference between the Pulse 1019 and your standard rain shower head and mainly in design.
There is no other word to describe this shower better than vintage because that’s what it really is. The 1019 is not just an oddly shaped shower head, it’s actually a properly designed unit with a neat look and solid efficiency. However, before we get to that, we need to take a moment to appreciate the chrome finish which will make the whole thing stand out nicely in most bathrooms.
If you’re still reading this then you mostly likely enjoy what you’re looking at and would like to know more about the functionality of this shower. Well, you came to the right place because although it looks different from the rest, this Pulse isn’t that different as to what it has to offer.
Well, it’s clearly a combo shower which means that it comes with a large overhead shower head + a hand shower for those tactical missions. Of course, you can further use the shower hand to clean your toddler, pet and eventually the bathing area. It is critical to know that the Pulse 1019 features a 2.5 GPM flow rate which signifies that you can use both elements simultaneously at full burst without a single worry. The stream won’t get weak and nor would your wallet. So, what do you think?
And we’re back to the good old structure, except this time it’s a shower head brave enough to stand on its own. Indeed, the Hansgrohe at hand is the outcome of a continuous effort to ameliorate the rain shower head and grant us the shower we all deserve. This one might be a little heavier on the wallet but it’s definitely worth every buck.
Sure, you can get the job done with pretty much any other shower head on this list and do it quite as well but for the Hansgrohe at hand, it is all about quality in the long term. In fact, this is one of those items which are capable of lasting for a life time and still look good.
Speaking of looks, this shower head measures 10 inches from end to end and with that brushed nickel finish, it is simply splendid.
Elegance is important for your bathroom. However, without proper functionality, it’s as good as a engineless Ferrari. Hence, this unit comes equipped with about 180 nozzles for a complete and immersive rainfall experience. In brief, if you have never enjoyed dancing under the rain then this is probably as good as it will ever get. So, what are you thinking about? Is it worth it?
This might not be the best rain shower head on the market today but it definitely were at some point in time. That however, doesn’t take away a bit from this Vida Alegria as it is still a strong competitor and that’s not about to change either.
The Spashower Rain comes in a variety of colours: Chrome, brushed nickel and oil rubbed bronze. With such variety, you are for sure going to get the perfect colour match for your bathroom plus a little extra touch. Indeed, the appeal of this Alegria might be limited to some but it is definitely elegant, clean and simple which are the 3 main rubrics for a solid shower head.
Beyond the friendly look, the Spashower Rain also features quite a friendly functionality setting which doesn’t require professional help to install. Also, bear in mind that this is a large shower head which means that adequate pressure is required to keep the flow rate at its peak. However, once all the boxes are checked then you are setting yourself up for the most immersive rain shower experience in your entire life because this shower head will easily cover your entire body which is a luxury only a few get to experience. So, give it a shot!
Yet another combo except this time it’s by AquaDance which if you don’t know already is one of the pioneers in the industry of shower heads. Moving to rain shower heads was definitely the next logical step for this company as it is only right to forward their knowledge and expertise into a much needed product. Hence, here is the AquaDance 7” Premium.
This is obviously not your regular rain shower head because it’s actually a combo that combines “the best of both worlds”. Whether it’s the best or not is not an issue here because it is still the outcome of a reputable brand and that’s enough warranty for anyone. However, you can’t really deny that this is one of the most luxurious shower head / handle combo we’ve seen in a while and we’re seen a lot. Further, the best part about this combo shower is that it can be used separately and all at once at command.
In terms of design, this AquaDance is definitely solid and with that chrome finish, you can’t deny that it’d look great in your bathroom However, there is a lot more to learn about this unit beside looks and that’s mainly the fact that it comes with 6 different settings on both outlets and they range from power spray to soft massage and a variety of options in between. So, will this be your choice?
