What is a Rainfall Shower?

As the name suggests, rainfall showers create the uncanny effect of raindrops, effortlessly giving the illusion of standing in the rain! Boasting a larger surface area than your ordinary shower, these clever shower heads imitate 'raindrops' that are not only refreshingly gentle, but also extremely effective.

The Pros

With a rainfall shower head, you get to experience all the luxury of an indulgent spa experience at home! These shower heads are not only designed to look stylish, they also make your shower look, sound and feel like a relaxing summer rainfall, giving you a unique and calming showering experience we all desire.

Due to it's larger shape, the rainfall shower head is also much easier to clean than your typical shower head. You can easily wipe the surface without having to tackle any small nooks.
