A good shower head will make your shower experience feel like a luxury and not a chore! The most efficient shower heads are ones that have a powerful spray and give you that super clean, refreshed feeling. This article explores the best shower heads for 2021 and outlines how to choose the best shower head based on your needs, including low and high pressure handsets and rainfall showers.
The Latest Shower Heads for 2021
The most popular shower heads for 2021 include rain shower heads along with shower handsets to provide the most lavish shower experience. Since the pandemic, we've been spending more time in our homes than ever, so many people are opting for spa themed bathrooms which offer maximum levels of relaxation.
Our Favourite Handheld Shower Heads
Handheld shower heads are perfect for rinsing, and in instances when you may not need the power of a large shower head, for example when washing your hair in the bath. Cleaning is also made easier with handheld shower heads, as they're perfect for rinsing around the bath. The best idea for showers is to go for a handset along with a full shower head which will give you more of a luxurious shower experience.
Our Favourite Fixed Heads
Fixed shower heads are becoming the most popular option for modern showers due to their minimalist style and lush shower experience that they provide. They are becoming less of a big-ticket luxury item and more of an affordable solution, so it's no wonder they're in demand! They are also easy to clean as they have no hose, unlike shower handsets and rail kits, which can be a hinderance as the hose is susceptible to limescale or mould, so having the head attached to the wall or ceiling is the preferred option.

This shower head is a firm favourite here at Drench, due to its minimalist, modern and efficient design. The chrome plated metal shower head is not only durable, but will look great in any modern or traditional bathroom.
The nozzles are also easy to clean, which makes it even easier to remove the limescale from your shower head.
It also includes a swivel ball joint which allows for easy adjustment of water flow direction, and a standard 1/2" thread to suit all standard shower arms.
