Ceiling Mount Shower Head: Pros and Cons

circular ceiling mounted shower head

A ceiling mount showerhead is installed on the ceiling above a bathtub or in a shower cubicle. Other popular designs for showerheads include wall-mounted and handheld showers. All these designs have definite benefits and disadvantages.

Advantages of a Ceiling Mount Showerhead

The major advantage of a ceiling mount shower head is that it is right over your head. With a wall-mounted showerhead, you might have to adjust your body position or the showerhead itself from time to time to allow the water to reach everywhere. It would help if you held a handheld showerhead at all times. If you drop it or let it sit on the floor, you may drench the surroundings with water. If you have a ceiling-mounted showerhead, you can stand and enjoy your shower in peace. You can choose from a variety of designs and materials as well.

Drawbacks of a Ceiling Mount Showerhead

A ceiling mount shower head has a few drawbacks as well. You can't easily target the stream towards your back or other parts of your body. Also, a powerful stream of a water landing on your head at all times may contribute to hair loss, especially if you use hot water.
