In a recent post, I noted that a 50-year old who spends an average of 15 minutes in the shower per day will have spent 190 days of their life in the shower. It was a jaw-dropping number, one that first got me interested in upgrading my shower head. It’s also the first number I note when friends tell me they are content with their dollar store shower head. Should you do everything possible to make sure you are comfortable in the shower? Yes. Does that start with an excellent shower head? Absolutely! Here is a list of my 5 favorite shower heads from Amazon.

My Review: I love this shower head, and it’s the shower head I am presently using. It has two separate heads (one handheld), along with numerous water functions. My absolute favorite function is the Stay-Warm Mist function, which is the most relaxing water function that I have ever experienced from any shower head. Not only does the water get released in a powerful mist, but you can even feel the wind that is generated from it. It’s the closest I’ve truly felt to a rain storm in the shower. You also can’t beat the price. If you’re looking to keep it inexpensive, this is absolutely the shower head to go for.

Comments: The future has arrived. This is an LED shower head that actually changes colors based on the temperature of the water. How cool is that? This is the one shower head that will completely wow any guests you have over. Sure, they may be a little confused when you ask if they’d like to come into the bathroom with you. But it will be all worthwhile the moment you turn it on and give them a demonstration. The one downside to this shower head is that it’s a bit lacking in function compared to other shower heads in this price range, but you’re paying for the style. Don’t forget the music, and it’ll truly feel like a party in the shower. It’ll also quickly wake you up in the morning.

Comments: This is one of the more affordable yet luxurious shower heads that you will find. I was first introduced to one of these square rainfall shower heads on a brief stop in Vegas several years ago. Yes, this is one of those shower heads you might find in a $300 dollar hotel. It’s limited to the one function, but it will truly feel like a nice summer rain shower. It’s a great combination of affordability, luxury, and it’s pretty to the eye. It also has an 11-inch arm which allows you to raise or lower it. Those of you who are tall will especially appreciate this.

Comments: Multiple water functions? Check. Handheld? Check. Under $20? Check. If you are looking for a great shower head but want to stick to a small budget, this should be at the top of your list. It’s very affordable, and will still be a great addition if you’ve never upgraded your shower head.

Comments: This is a very basic shower head, but is noteworthy due to the price. Despite the ridiculously low price tag, it still offers 5 spray settings, along with a flow control to help with your water bill. It also looks good, and can still be a nice replacement for any old shower head that is dirty and just needs to be replaced.
