When you start with a shower head that dangles from an extended wand, your reaction to a new shower head may be a bit exaggerated. I guess I didn’t realise how much such a small product would change the look of a bathroom. I like the black and white tiles in the shower stall in my mom’s house, but the room needs some serious work — the new was a huge improvement, not only aesthetically but in terms of the shower flow quality.
Beautiful in its simplicity I like the shininess and modern look of the Danze shower head.
The bathroom (with just a shower stall) is quite small—meaning that every piece in the room has high impact. When you decorate a room with inferior products in such a small space, their inadequateness is amplified. My mom’s bathroom shower head was one of those inexpensive ones on a handheld wand, except that it no longer held in place, so the head dangled.
BEFORE: Not the most appealing shower head is it? And why is it mounted so close to the ceiling?
AFTER: It couldn’t have been easier to install this shower head—I just unscrewed the old wand/shower head put the enclosed white plumber’s tape around the threads and screwed on the new Danze shower head!
I didn’t see any water leaking when I turned on the shower. I really like the waterflow—not too streamlined, but also not too splayed. The weight of the shower head is nice and heavy—which speaks to the quality of it.
