When most people think of shower heads; they generally think of the traditional wall mounted variety. Wall mounts come in a large variety of styles and options.

These pieces allow the user to control exactly where the water is dispersed and can even be used while seated in the shower. Hand held shower heads should be installed by a plumbing professional and provide a decorative and practical showering tool.
Showering systems with multiple shower heads and computer control have gained popularity in recent years. These systems provide an unforgettable experience. Systems range from a few shower heads to over a dozen shower heads. They can be programmed to perform a variety of functions and are able to be customized to your needs. Programmable systems can offer shower lighting in a wide range of colors and intensities. The lighting adds to the experience and can be coordinated with the shower heads to enhance the experience.
