Ceiling mounted rain head vs standard wall mounted shower head?

tcjohnssonMay 15, 2009

I have two showers in my two bedroom unit (I didn't want tubs).

The showers are decent size at about 34" wide x 55" long. They each have a 14" deep x 19" high x 34" wide shower bench. My question is would you prefer to have a rain head where the shower head is mounted to the ceiling in the middle of the shower? Or would you rather opt for the standard wall-mounted shower head? Pros? Cons?

There was an enlightening discussion on this a while back so you should try doing a search. In general the gist of the comments was that a rain shower head experience is usually gentle and those with thick hair have difficulty rinsing shampoo and other hair products. Many, however, like the rain shower for the gentleness. In one shower that will be used by grubby children coming in from playing outside we have installed both a rain shower and a handshower in hopes that they will be enticed into getting cleaned up before they wander through the house. This will also probably be the dog shower. We haven't had a chance to use it yet as we are still waiting for our c.o. HTH.
