Overwhelmed with choices while shopping for a new shower head? Not sure how to find the best shower head for your bathroom's aesthetic and personal preferences? We're here to help. Our buying guide below will give you all the ins and outs you need to find the perfect shower head for your bathroom. 

Before making a purchase, you'll want to consider how the shower head looks with your other bathroom fixtures, the installation difficulty, where you want the shower head mounted, and much more. Once you know what to look for when shopping for a shower head, it'll be easier to find the best shower head from our wide selection of shower spouts

Here are a few factors to consider before you begin your search for the perfect shower head: 

  • High flow versus low flow

    You shouldn't buy a shower head without knowing the difference between high and low water output. High flow shower heads generally offer the same volume of water as low flow shower heads, but the pressure is higher. Though many people prefer the massage-like feel of a high-pressure shower head, others find low flow more gentle and relaxing, especially with a rain shower head mounted on the ceiling.

  • Coordinating with other fixtures

    The last thing you want is to spend money on a shower head only to realise it clashes with your bathroom's style and colour scheme. Thankfully, you shouldn't have any trouble finding a shower head that complements your space with the vast selection available at ACS Designer Bathrooms.

    We have shower heads of all styles to match your other fixtures, whether they're chrome-plated or stainless steel. We also have copper and black shower heads to match on-trend bath spouts and bathroom taps. If you're looking for other pieces to match your new shower head, check out our inventory of bathroom accessories.

  • Water efficiency

    Is making greener choices with your household appliances important to you? If so, you'll want to buy a water-saving shower head that makes a massive difference in efficiently using water and the energy used to heat it — this will help you save money in the long run. According to the Australian government, a 4-star shower head that flows at 6L per minute can save 105kl of water consumed yearly.

    Of course, there's nothing wrong with preferring a more luxurious shower with a high-pressure shower head. There are many other ways to preserve water and energy at home. 

  • Consider installation difficulty

    If you plan on installing a shower head on your own, you may want to consider its installation difficulty. Some shower heads might appear easy to install, but looks can be deceiving. For a seamless installation to ensure you can ensure great water pressure and no leaks, don’t be afraid to call in professional help if needed! Have experience installing shower heads or similar fixtures? Then you're probably okay to purchase most shower head types.

  • Determine where you want it mounted

    The most significant difference between the types of shower heads is that some are meant to be mounted on the wall and others on the ceiling — with each producing a different showering experience. Though wall-mounted shower heads are more common, you shouldn't have too much trouble finding fittings for either type.

  • Wall-mounted shower heads

    The wall-mounted shower head is perhaps the most popular of all types. Budget-friendly and aesthetically pleasing, wall-mounted shower heads are easy to install and allow for uncomplicated daily use.

  • Rain shower heads

    A rain shower head features a more prominent face than your typical shower head. They're designed to imitate the sensation of rain gently falling onto your skin and are incredibly popular — with many enjoying their unique and tranquil bathing experience. Either mounted on the ceiling or to make a high impact on your bathroom decor, select a style that can be recessed and hidden in the wall for dramatic effect. If you're interested in rain shower heads, check out the amazing selection in our overhead shower series!

  • Hand-held shower head

    Hand-held shower heads are ubiquitous and for a good reason. Unlike most shower heads, they're detachable and can be moved from their cradle to easily extend the head’s reach to wash your entire body. They're versatile, easy to use, and an excellent choice for people of all ages. If this style appeals to you, browse our inventory of hand-held shower heads in our rail shower series.
