The Moen S6320 Velocity Two-Function Rainshower justifies its premium price by boasting an attractive appearance, a strong metal construction, and a large coverage area. If you have the money, the Moen S6320 Velocity Two-Function Rainshower is worth the cost because of its high-quality design and functionality. Despite being in the same price range as the Moen, the Delta In2ition 5-Spray and Delta HydroRain Two-in-One 5-Spray couldn’t compete because of their awkward designs and difficult operation. The Moen’s small connection to the shower arm made installation more difficult than with other models I evaluated. The fact that it took a few more minutes to get the threads to catch wasn’t a big concern, but a longer shower arm would undoubtedly speed up installation.
The Moen looked fantastic after being installed. It has a traditional rainshower appearance thanks to its extra-wide 8-inch face, and its 100 nozzles provide exceptional performance. The Moen outperformed the other high-end versions I tried because of the water’s unexpected strength and overall pleasant feel. One of the second-highest I tested was 1.85 GPM from it. For a broader showerhead like this one to function properly, a high flow rate is unquestionably required. The movement of the adjustment lever was one of my favorite aspects of the Moen. This lever easily and silently switches from a full-coverage mode to concentrated rinsing, unlike other versions that have noisy mechanical clicks when you change settings. The entire device has a good degree of movement and swivels on a ball joint attached to the water supply arm, although its large form restricts its pivoting more than thinner ones.
Is the design of your bathroom sophisticated enough?
You should first think about the layout of your present bathroom. Does it have the sophistication to accommodate a rainfall shower head? Let’s face it, installing a rain shower head in a bathroom that hasn’t been renovated in a long time won’t look good. To ensure that your bathroom complements the spa-like ambiance you’re wanting to generate with your rain shower head, you might want to think about renovating the entire space. To assist you in doing this, Mission West Kitchen & Bath provides a variety of options, such as stunning modern plumbing fixtures, personalized bathroom vanity cabinets, and high-quality bathroom worktops.
Ceiling or Wall Mount??
Rainfall showerheads were all first ceiling-mounted. However, wall-mounted solutions are becoming more and more common because installing plumbing through the bathroom ceiling may be a major undertaking. Because the shower arm of these showerheads arches out over and above your head to direct the showerhead straight down, they may attach exactly where your old showerhead did and still provide the overhead rain shower sensation. You should pick carefully because wall and ceiling mounts obviously have quite distinct aesthetics and often cost various amounts.
Selecting a shape
The two most common shapes for rainfall showerheads are square shower head and circular. Usually, the decision is based on how your bathroom is decorated overall. Modern bathrooms with a lot of angular fixtures, such as a square bathtub, often go well with square heads.
Selecting a Size
Sizes range from 6 inches across to 10 inches or more for rain shower heads. A bigger size with more nozzles will ostensibly give a wider area of “rain” for your shower, but if you already have low water pressure, it will just exacerbate the issue. More pressure will be present with smaller showerheads with fewer nozzles.
Selecting a Finish
You may also have the opportunity to select the finish once you’ve decided on the kind, size, and shape of rainfall showerhead you desire. Numerous finishes, including various metal tones, gold shower head alike tone, brushed, polished, oiled, or rubbed finishes, etc., may be available, depending on the manufacturer. Don’t worry about perfectly matching the other bathroom plumbing fixtures; nowadays, mixing and matching is usual as long as the finishes look well together.
