High/Low: Rain Shower Head

I recently posted on how challenging it can be to pick the perfect kitchen faucet. During our recent remodel I was faced with yet another fixture dilemma–although this time it was all about the shower head, more specifically a rain shower head (the only fixture on my husband’s wish list. My request? A shower head without rubber nozzles). Here are three we considered, all at different price points:


Above: If money were no object, I would go for the slim 11-inch Toto Rain Showerhead. It starts at $788.40 in chrome finish from Faucet Direct. 


Above: A middle-of-the-road option is the Kohler Traditional Round Rain Showerhead, which measures 8 inches in diameter and is $418 from Amazon (shown here in brushed nickel). 


Above: The Delta 8.75-inch Rain Showerhead starts at $122.23 in chrome finish from Faucet Direct. It is also available in stainless steel and Venetian bronze.
