Designed to emulate the sense of relaxation and freshness that a natural rainstorm can bring, a rising trend in shower design is the wide overhead rain shower head that distributes water straight down. It’s stylish, luxurious and also more water-efficient than traditional showerheads. Plus, it’s versatile—you can get an inexpensive model that easily attaches to your existing plumbing, or include it as one element in a complete bathroom renovation.
