Positioning Your Showerhead
A wall-mounted showerheads is the most traditional type of showerhead.
A stationary, wall-mounted showerhead is the most common type of showerhead. Typically placed at least 6 feet above the floor, its height cannot readily be adjusted, but its head usually swivels. In addition to basic, single spray showerheads available, you can also purchase multi-spray units.
Ceiling-mounted showerheads typically have one setting and are used to supplement a wall-mounted fixture. They are often larger in diameter than regular showerheads, and referred to as rain showerheads because of their ability to produce a rain-like effect. Rain showerheads can be wall mounted, but should have a long arm that extends away from the wall and parallel to the floor. This allows the showerhead to function the same way a ceiling-mounted unit would.
