New faucets are an inexpensive way to bring bathrooms and kitchens up to date. Adding low-flow faucet aerators will also save you money on your water bill.
Shower heads come a wide range of styles and finishes. A new trend is to install a combination of shower heads rather than a single wall-mount shower head for a spa like experience. The shower heads can be adjusted to produce a spray that ranges from fine to coarse and a water action that ranges from gentle mist to strong massage.
Top-mount or ceiling-mounted shower heads spray from directly overhead, life rainfall. Some top-mount heads can be installed flush with the ceiling in situations where the ceiling is too low to install a wall-mount head.
Sliding bar shower heads are mounted on a rail system to accommodate a wide range of heights.
Consider installing low-flow shower heads when possible. They use only around 2.5 gpm while maintaining an effective spray of water.
