What are the benefits of a rain shower?
If you’ve not experienced the wonders of a rain shower already, here are some of the great reasons to install a rain shower in your home.
Enjoy a full rain shower experience
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of a full rain shower from the comfort of your own bathroom. A rain shower head usually hangs directly overhead and expels a larger quantity of water over a wider area, giving you a more luxurious shower experience.
Gentle water pressure
Rain showers don’t have the same concentrated water pressure as standard shower units. The result? A gentle, rain-like shower that’s both relaxing and refreshing. If you also want the option of having stronger water pressure, you can get rain shower units that also come with a standard second shower head so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
Add style to your shower
There’s no doubt that rain showers have become a feature associated with stylish modern bathrooms. Installing a rain shower can give a functional yet stylish touch to your bathroom at an affordable cost.
