Kohler 22169-G-CP Forte Multifunction Showerhead

Kohler 22169-G-CP Forte Multifunction Showerhead

The best showerhead

Of all the models we tested, this elegant, three-spray showerhead offered the fullest, most powerful rain-shower spray, with huge, soft drops that felt gentle on skin.

Buying Options

$74 from Amazon
$82 from Lowe’s

The Kohler 22169-G-CP Forte Multifunction Showerhead has the best rain-shower spray of any showerhead we tested: It produces a powerful, dense full soak that envelops your entire body. The Forte aerates its stream, creating larger, softer water droplets, which make the spray feel fuller and warmer. This three-spray model has two other excellent settings: a pummeling massage function and a silky-soft fine spray. The showerhead installs easily, and you can adjust the spray settings smoothly with one hand. And the Forte’s brass ball joint securely pivots the head to hit the far corners of a tub or stall.

Moen Attract Magnetix Chrome Rainshower Combo 26008

Moen Attract Magnetix Chrome Rainshower Combo 26008

A luxurious, versatile combo showerhead

This efficient and versatile showerhead has six distinct settings. And it offers both a rain-shower and a handheld head, providing every possible experience you could want.

Buying Options

$90 from Home Depot

The powerful Moen Attract Magnetix Chrome Rainshower Combo 26008 pairs a handheld and a rain-shower head, along with six spray patterns, to produce an exceptional variety of great showering options. The handheld unit’s magnetic dock snaps securely into its own dedicated socket—which is far easier than maneuvering a handheld shower into a narrow holster within the main showerhead (as is found on some competitors). The 26008 is almost as easy to install as a fixed showerhead, and it includes a pause button, which allows you to halt its 1.75-gpm spray without losing your temperature setting.

Kohler Freespin Bellerose 3-Spray Dual Showerhead Combo

Kohler Freespin Bellerose 3-Spray Dual Showerhead Combo

A strong flow where you want it to go

This showerhead features a unique, 360-degree rotating design with pivoting heads on both the rain-shower and handheld base, providing a customized shower with a total of 15 different spray combinations.

Buying Options

$90 from Home Depot

The Kohler Freespin Bellerose 3-Spray Dual Showerhead Combo offers supreme versatility with a clever design that allows you to maneuver the two showerheads—one fixed, the other a detachable handheld—in a complete circle. When it’s not detached, the handheld nestles in a pivoting cradle, just like its attached counterpart, allowing you to adjust both water flows in all directions and hit different areas. So this pick is ideal for households made up of people with varying body types and spray preferences (there are 15 to choose from).

Nebia by Moen

Nebia by Moen

A steamy home-spa experience

This showerhead will cloak you in a warm, comforting mist, combined with the force of a cleansing downpour.

Buying Options

$257 from Home Depot
$300 from Amazon

The Nebia by Moen requires a few preexisting shower and plumbing conditions for proper installation. But if your bathroom meets the criteria, and you’re the type who goes to the gym primarily to sit in the steam room, this luxury pick is the closest you’ll get to an in-home spa without breaking the bank. Along with its height and aim versatility, this showerhead features a relaxing atomized steam and drenching soak (which is strong enough to thoroughly rinse thick hair), making it a worthy splurge for some. However, the very specific spray function lacks universal appeal.

High Sierra 1.5 GPM High Efficiency Low Flow Showerhead

High Sierra 1.5 GPM High Efficiency Low Flow Showerhead

The best low-flow showerhead

At just 1.5 gpm, this exceptionally low-flow showerhead has one of the fullest sprays of any model we tested. But there’s only one (strong) setting, which may feel overwhelming to some.

Buying Options

$40 from Amazon

The High Sierra 1.5 GPM High Efficiency Low Flow Showerhead is a low-flow model that feels luxurious. It’s the most powerful low-flow showerhead we tested, spraying heavy, drenching droplets that felt more powerful than the 2.5-gpm settings on some other showerheads. We also appreciated its sturdy, all-metal construction. The High Sierra has just one setting, making it less versatile—especially if its strong spray pattern feels too overwhelming. It’s also not as attractive as our other picks.
