What is the average rain shower price?

When it comes to a rain shower, there are two main elements you’ll need to consider: a) the cost of the rain shower unit itself (including the rain shower head), and b) the labour cost for the installation.

The average price of a bathroom rain shower unit is around £150 – £400. On top of that, you then have the rain shower installation cost, which typically costs about £150 – £350.

Rain shower head price

The average cost of a rain shower head can vary massively, depending on the make and model. On average you can expect to pay anywhere in the region of £20 – £200+ for a rain shower head.

Generally speaking the bigger the rain shower head and the higher the quality model, the bigger the price tag. It’s always worth speaking to local shower specialists for their professional advice to know which rain shower head is the right one for your bathroom.

There are a number of factors that can affect the cost of a rain shower, including:

  • Size and shape of the rain shower head
  • Make and model
  • The complexity of the installation
  • Additional plumbing work needed
  • Any additional prep work needed
  • Tiling, if needed
  • Where you live

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.

We always recommend obtaining at least three quotes from our trusted tradespeople. Our request a quote feature is perfect for getting quotes – you post details about the job you want doing and we’ll send it out to local tradespeople in your area. Try it out!
