Shower faucets are present in nearly every bathroom, and although they have a single specific job, still, they are available in multiple types, and each type brings its own stylish appearance on differs a lot in terms of the price.
If you have never thought regarding the types of shower faucets, this is normal and I’m not here to judge you, since most of us often go to the store, find something we like and purchase it without paying attention at all if there is better product, etc.
In this article, I will explain to you the types of shower faucets so that after reading this article, you will have a better understanding of them, so later on, you would be able to pick the type you find the most visually pleasing. Shall we start? Let’s go!
Based on valves
Valves play a huge role regarding the lifespan and performance of literally all types of shower faucets, since valves can drastically improve your comfort and the overall experience that you will have in the bathroom.
Single & Double-handle shower faucets
Single-handle shower faucets are the most common type available on the market, and I’m sure that you’ve seen like hundreds of them. For your information, they are popular because their design lets you adjust the water flow and temperature easily according to your preferences.
On the contrary, double-handle shower faucets have been around for ages, since they are traditional and at the same time, if you prefer having more traditional bathroom decor, then they will be highly suitable for you.
Tub/Shower Combo Faucets
This is basically a combination of wall-mounted tub spout and a showerhead on the bathtub. What’s cool about them is that they are based on the same handle and diverter which usually employ a button or lever. The lever/button lets you adjust the flow of the water between the tub and the shower itself.
Based on showerheads
They do really exist, and in fact, they are available in two sub-types, such as Fixed Showerheads and Handheld showerheads.
The first type is mounted on walls or ceilings depending on your preferences, and what’s cool is that they can swivel about 180-degrees so that you can adjust the height and direction of the water flow.
On the contrary, the latter type have been around for over a century, and they are widely being purchased due to their simplicity and their flexibility, since you can reach every part of your body with your hand!
Fortunately, you can find all of them on numerous online/physical stores, however, since most of us have a busy lifestyle, you can easily order it from the Internet, but prior to purchasing, try to ensure that you have done a little bit of a research regarding the best faucets for your shower.
In conclusion, these are types of shower faucets that you can encounter, and now, I have a question for you. Which type is the most suitable for you?
