How to Choose the Right Shower Fixtures for Your Home

How to Choose the Right Shower Fixtures for Your Home When selecting shower fixtures for your bathroom, first consider its décor. Showerheads, handles, and valve controls come in numerous finishes, from polished chrome and brushed nickel to stainless steel and oil-rubbed bronze, so you’ll have no shortage of options for finding fixtures that suit your aesthetic preferences. But here’s a tip: If you want a consistent look for your shower space, choose all your fixtures and accessories from the same manufacturer. Now, let’s explore the selection of fixtures you’ll see as you shop around.

Fixed Showerhead

Fixed showerheads are traditional options. They are mounted to the wall with a shower arm and cannot be moved or pivoted.

Handheld Showers

If you want affordable convenience, go with a handheld showerhead. Attached to the wall with a flexible hose, a handheld showerhead locks into an upright position to work as a standard adjustable showerhead and can also be taken off the wall and used by hand.

Rain Showerhead

These options are typically installed directly to the ceiling or feature a shower arm that extends into the shower stall so that the spray falls straight down like rainfall. Rain showerheads are often low-flow, which means they use less water.


While showerheads get most of the attention, the valves, which regulate water pressure and temperature, are no less important in creating your shower experience. Popular options include:

  • Pressure-balancing valves – If you want just one handle to turn your shower on and off and control the water temperature, this option is ideal.
  • Thermostatic manual valves – Great for custom shower systems, these valves will automatically maintain your desired temperature setting.
  • Thermostatic digital valves – You can use this state-of-the-art option to digitally control the shower spray as well your bathroom lighting.
