Benefits of Rain Shower Head Singapore

Did you know that the temperature of your shower can affect your health? Cold showers can be refreshing and soothing after you return from an outdoor activity while hot showers help to detoxify and relax your muscles.

At Fullsun, our rain shower head singapore is equipped with TOTO’s technology such as Aerial Pulse and Water Pillar to offer a luxurious showering experience. They both function to deliver a relaxing and stimulating flow of water to energise and invigorate the body. That said, here are the benefits of using a rain showerhead.


Stress-relieving Powers

There’s a reason why a hot shower feels relaxing after a long day or a hard workout. That’s because the massaging nature of a shower combined with hot water increases circulation that loosens up your muscles. Also, TOTO’s Water Pillar technology helps to control a single stream of water so that it gently glides over the entire body which makes for a far more comfortable shower experience.

Cold showers, on the other hand, lack the necessary recognition for their stress-relieving powers. However, it helps to kickstart your system and get your metabolism revved up to warm up your body under the refreshingly cool water. Also, it helps to soothe skin sensitivity, ease muscle sores, and improve your skin and hair’s natural shine.


Coverage and Water Pressure

Using a rain showerhead for hydrotherapeutic purposes is effective because the full coverage keeps the waterfall consistent, making you feel like you’re standing under the rainfall. Not only will it distribute water to provide great coverage, but also water consumption isn’t sacrificed in the process.

Thanks to TOTO’s Aerial Pulse technology, you can have a comfortable showering experience while using less water. The air is drawn in through the showerhead and then added to the water. The showerhead then pulses the enlarged water droplets as they fall for an invigorating and relaxing experience.

5 Factors to Consider Before Buying a Rain Showerhead

Now that you’ve learned about the benefits and types of rain showerheads, it’s time to purchase one for your bathroom. But before you head to Fullsun and get one, here are several factors to consider:


#1 Bathroom style

Installing a rain showerhead into a bathroom that lacks a style update isn’t going to look right. Unless you’re redesigning your bathroom, you can then proceed with your selection of a rain showerhead.


#2 Wall or ceiling mount

Rain showerheads are originally ceiling-mounted but running the plumbing through the ceiling can be a big project. Hence, wall-mounted options have made it easier for people like you to install one in your bathroom.


#3 Shape

Rain showerheads generally come in either a square or round shape. Your choice of a rain showerhead may vary depending on the style of your bathroom. Square rain showerheads generally work better with bathrooms that have plenty of angular elements in them.


#4 Size

Rain showerheads typically come in sizes ranging from 6 inches and up. Larger sizes deliver a larger area of water for your shower, but this depends on your water pressure. If you have poor water pressure, you may not enjoy the shower. Smaller rain showerheads with less nozzle will have more pressure.


#5 Style/Finish

Once you’ve narrowed down the type, size, and shape of your rain shower head, you may have the option of choosing the style or finish. Depending on the retailer, you may have several finishes to choose from such as chrome, brass chrome, and chrome plated.
