Your home should be your sanctuary, the place that houses your favorite things like your bed, your couch, your comfortable sweatpants, and your ideal shower. Typically, we have to book a stay at an exclusive five-star resort to get a shower experience like the ones we see in hair commercials. You know the ones, where it looks like the person is standing underneath a waterfall that is magically located inside a shower. Well, it’s time for your close up, because we’ve found three rain showerheads that are going to make you excited to get up in the morning. Or go to bed at night if you’re more of an evening shower person. With these showerheads, you may be increasing your bathing ritual to twice per day.

Rain showerheads are an easy and inexpensive way to turn your regular shower into a spa-like experience. Because of their extended size, rain showerheads provide a wide coverage, which means no more constant circling in the shower to keep your entire body warm and covered in water.

We’ve included three sizes of rain showerheads below, ranging between 8 and 12 inches. It’s essential to take note of the size of your bathtub or shower stall when deciding on which showerhead to purchase. Smaller showers may not be able to contain the wider coverage of oversized rain showerheads.

If you don’t already have a ceiling attachment for a rain showerhead, you can still use your existing wall attachment. We recommend purchasing a shower arm extended to use if a ceiling shower arm is not already installed to achieve the waterfall effect, with the extended arm allowing the showerhead to sit in the middle of your shower and drop water directly downward instead of on an angle.

Easy to install and perfect for providing a feeling of luxury, these are three of our favorite rain showerheads on the market right now.


1. Luxe RainLuxe 12-Inch High Pressure High Flow Showerhead

Combat weak water flow and install the Luxe RainLuxe High Pressure High Flow Showerhead in minutes to turn your bathroom into a spa with a high volume and long-lasting waterfall showerhead.

Pros: The 12-inch Luxe installs in minutes, replacing old shower heads, including standard shower arms or overhead ceiling fixtures. Also working as an outside showerhead, the 12-inch Luxe has 150 anti-clogging nozzles that allow for a high-flow pressure with no flow or water restrictions. Cleaning is simple, with users able to wipe the showerhead between uses.

Cons: Because the 12-inch Luxe is oversized and doesn’t have a flow restrictor, some customers noted that it uses more water than traditional showerheads.

2. DreamSpa Ultra-Luxury 9 Inch Rainfall Showerhead and Handheld Combo

Featuring two options, the DreamSpa Ultra-Luxury 9 Inch Rainfall Showerhead and Handheld Combo makes for a relaxing and convenient bathing experience.

Pros: Unlike both Luxe options on our list, the DreamSpa comes with a handheld attachment that adds convenience to customer’s showering experience. The handheld attachment works with push-button flow control and can be used as an overhead showerhead. The 9-inch rain showerhead has rub-clean jets for easy cleaning and a solid brass ball joint for a leak-free connection. No tools are needed for the matching chrome combo, with the showerhead easily attached to any overhead shower arm. Unlike the Luxe, the DreamSpa comes with a water restrictor.

Cons: Some customers found the diverter, which moves the water from the showerhead to the handheld, difficult to access and wish that there was an option for water to come out of both units at the same time.

3. Luxe RainLuxe 8-Inch High Pressure High Flow Chrome Showerhead

The Luxe RainLuxe 8-Inch-High Pressure High Flow Chrome Showerhead has 100 anti-clogging nozzles that provide a wide and even waterfall effect in the shower.

Pros: The Luxe RainLuxe 8-Inch-High Pressure High Flow Chrome Showerhead is a smaller version of the 12-inch model, which gives it a lower price point and makes it a better fit for smaller showers, including stall-style showers. The 8-Inch model has all the same features, including anti-clog, easy-to-clean nozzles, a chrome finish, and a no-restrictor high-flow showerhead. Because the 8-inch is a smaller size, it does not use as much water as the 12-inch model, which is a common complaint among 12-inch customers.

Cons: Some customers found that if the water pressure was already weak, the Luxe didn’t help to improve the pressure strength significantly.
