5 reasons why you need dual shower heads

5 reasons why you need dual shower heads

Posted by Kristin Kudeva 8th Jun 2023

Dual shower heads offer a variety of benefits and come in a few different options that will make everyday living easier and more enjoyable.

Most showers that feature two heads usually have a main shower head; this typically would be rain-effect to provide you with a luxurious shower option.

The additional head is usually mounted on a small wall arm or bracket and is called a handset. This small shower head can be used for a quick refreshing shower, for washing hair or it could be used to rinse the shower out after use thanks to its flexible hose. It’s also ideal for small children as the main shower head can be a bit too powerful for them.

Whatever your plans for two shower heads are, you’ll find this design a welcomed addition to your bathroom that will give you better control over how you want to bathe.

So, join us on this journey as we unravel the amazing benefits that dual shower heads bring to your daily routine!

1. Turn your bathroom into a blissful SPA retreat

If you're not fortunate enough to have regular spa visits, there's still a way to transform your bathroom into a relaxing at-home spa. A double shower head system is the answer you're looking for!

First up, we have the fixed shower head - it's perfect for drenching your body, washing away the stresses of the day and preparing you for a state of pure relaxation. Then there’s the handheld shower head with its array of spray settings, including rainfall, jetting, and massage. It's like having a personal masseuse at your fingertips. And the cherry on top? You won't even have to step out of the shower. Convenience at its finest!

One remarkable option to consider is the Bristan Exodus Dual Control Shower, which comes complete with a shower arm, a convenient handset, a flexible hose, and a sturdy holder. Everything you need for the shower of your dreams!

With its 200mm fixed shower head, it's like standing beneath a glorious waterfall, feeling the cascading water envelop your body. But it doesn't stop there – the Bristan Exodus is crafted with precision from ABS brass material, perfectly blending durability with a modern touch.

With this Bristan dual shower pack, you'll forget all about those spa trips you thought were out of reach.

2. Simplify shower time

When it comes to sharing a shower with a partner, it can either be a delightful experience or a tricky balancing act, especially when there's only one shower head in play. But a double shower head can be a fantastic solution that will make shower time a breeze for couples.

With this ingenious system, the battle for water domination becomes a thing of the past.

But that's not all the double shower head system has to offer. It brings flexibility to a whole new level, accommodating people of different heights with ease. The handheld shower head, known for its mobility, can cater to shorter individuals, while the fixed shower head takes care of taller people. It's a showering solution that embraces everyone's unique needs.

3. Enhance shower accessibility

For those with disabilities or the elderly, using a regular shower head can present its fair share of challenges. Sure, a handheld shower head can offer control over the water flow. But let's be honest, the fatigue of constantly holding it can dampen the experience. On the other hand, a fixed shower head keeps your hands free, but it leaves you drenched and unable to direct the water where you need it most.

With a double shower head system, you can finally enjoy the best of both worlds. No more acrobatics or awkward manoeuvres under a fixed shower head. Now, you can effortlessly switch between the fixed and handheld shower heads, tailoring your showering experience to your exact needs.

4. Boost home value

Investing in a double shower is a smart decision that can yield impressive returns. When it comes time to sell your home, it can give your home a remarkable competitive edge. The allure of a double shower, with its enhanced functionality, can be a decisive factor that sets your home apart from the rest. It exudes an air of sophistication and indulgence, creating a lasting impression that resonates with potential buyers.
