The Top Showerhead Trends

Last updated on November 15, 2023

Want to upgrade your shower with a new showerhead? These are the top trends you can follow. Read on!

Showers have been around for a long time, but they’ve never really changed much. The basic design of showers has remained pretty consistent over the years: a tub or basin with an overhead sprayer that sprays water onto your body from above. That is why showerhead connections are standard and fit any shower.

But there is one trend in particular that we think will be here to stay – and it’s not just about how you use the bathroom anymore!

The current trend in showering is simpler and more eco-friendly. It is soft and gentle, with leading manufacturers on three continents introducing new concepts that seek to nurture users while meeting ever-stingier water restrictions. When the rest of your life is busy, and high stress, soft and gentle is a good choice.

H20Kinetic Showerhead Technology

The H2Okinetic® technology from Delta offers a revolutionary way to control how much hot and cold water comes out of your shower head. With just one touch, you can adjust the flow rate between slow and fast, allowing you to regulate exactly what amount of water hits your body at every moment. It’s like having multiple heads – only better because it saves water and energy too.

This technology is designed to help conserve water by delivering precisely controlled amounts of both warm and cool water on demand. Press down on the handle to increase or decrease the volume of water flowing through the unit. You’ll never have to worry about wasting precious resources again.

Handheld Showerheads

A handheld showerhead is perfect if you don’t have enough space to install a full-size model. Handheld models usually come with three settings – rain mode, massage mode, and pulsating mode. Rain mode delivers steady streams of water; massage mode provides gentle massages while pulsating mode creates a rhythmic pulse effect.

LED Showerhead

LED showerheads rely on water flow to power LED lights. The showerhead has a small turbine which is installed in the shower lights. Once water flows through such a turbine, the showerhead will light up instantly.

Water-saving Showerhead

This type of showerhead uses less than half as much water compared to traditional ones. This means more savings when using this kind of showerhead.

Dual-functional Showerheads

These types of showerheads offer two different functions. One function allows you to choose either high pressure or low pressure. Another feature lets you select whether you want to get wet all over or focus on certain areas of your body. 

Chrome and Matte Black Finish

Whether it’s made of plastic or metal, brushed nickel finish is the most popular in showerhead trends. But matter black is also prevalent. We also find rubbed bronze popular. These finishes look great together. They complement each other well.

It is because these taps last longer, and they add value to any bathroom decor.

What about chrome? Chrome has been around since the early 1900s, but its popularity seems to be waning. Manufacturers still use it like Kohler and Moen, but not everyone likes them. Suppose you do decide to go with chrome, then you should know how to maintain it properly. You need to clean it regularly and use stainless steel polish to protect it.

More Spray Modes

Rainfall Mode

In rainfall mode, the showerhead sends continuous streams of water downward. In addition to providing comfort, this setting helps keep hair away from the face.

Massage Mode

With massage mode, the showerhead gently vibrates against your skin for added relaxation.

Pulsation Mode

When pulsation mode is activated, the showerhead emits short bursts of water. Pulsations are ideal for people who have arthritis or joint pain.



Showerscapes are available in many shapes and sizes. Some even include built-in speakers so you can listen to music while taking a bath.

Home Spa Experience

The Home spa experience offers an array of features that make bathing easier and more enjoyable. For example, there are adjustable jets that allow users to customize their showers according to their preferences. There are also aromatherapy options that provide soothing scents during your time under the spray.

Smart Features

Some smart features let you control various aspects of your home via a smartphone app. For instance, some showerheads now support Bluetooth connectivity.

New Showerhead Shapes

There’s no end to the number of new designs being introduced into the market today. From sleek curves to geometric patterns, we’re sure you’ll be able to find one that suits your needs perfectly.

Design That Contrasts Tile

If you prefer tile walls, consider installing a showerhead design that contrasts the tile. This will help create visual interest between two different types of surfaces.

You may think the modern style looks simple, but it actually comes with lots of details. The best way to achieve this kind of look is to choose a contemporary showerhead that complements the overall theme of your bathroom.
