You walk into your thick-walled bathroom, turn on the switch, and water comes out of a randomly fitted tiny metallic thing with drilled-in holes, you allow the laminarly ejected water falls on your body for some few minutes, and you are done with your bath? NO! That should not be called a shower, and we think Water-Drop is a more befitting term for that. Or you too can come up with a name for it. And if you still have that kind of arrangement in your bathroom, you should consider a renovation!
Modern bathrooms are now harnessing the power of luxurious showers to transform your bathing period into a more serious and look-forward-to affair. Plenty of homeowners these days are insisting on a vacation-caliber bath experience, spending serious money on their own lavish power shower features. Well, it is more than enough to go crazy for a shower bathroom with a unique design approach, custom designs, dual hand-held, and rainfall shower heads, innovative lighting, variety of water options that lets you water in a multitude of different ways, and other cool features to help you relax better (Yeah, you should start seeing your bath time as a relaxation time too, not a get-in-and-get-cleaned period).
Well, you don’t have to spend a fortune on the luxurious transformation. All that is needed is the determination to deviate from the norms and elope into the world of luxury. If you are really determined (I guess you are, and that is probably the reason you are here), then read on till the end, as we share with you five ways to give your home shower a luxury hotel shower makeover. Enjoy.
Luxury Shower Head
The ability to vary and control the pressure of water is a sign of luxury. Luxury showerheads allow you to switch between several shower modes like high pressure saturating spray for a revitalizing rinse; gentle rain soft spray mode ideal for delicate skin; and a fine massage setting for a clamping spa-like treatment. Luxury showerhead also lets you restrict the flowing water and save you a great deal on water billing. There are shower heads that solve hard water by self-cleaning nozzles that prevent natural calcium build-up.
High-pressure rainfall water is known to have some soothing effect and it cleanses your pores by opening them up so that any dirt clogging them up can be washed, thereby giving you the perfect relaxation experience. The Sparkod luxury bathroom rainhead is the perfect replacement that will jet out high-pressure rain of hot water so your whole body is doused with the downpour. This showerhead does the hard work of removing the limescale build-up with full-powered anti-clogging silicone jets. And above all, the showerhead can be the center-piece that casts the appearance of luxury in your bathroom.

- Hassle-free removable water restrictor
- Beautiful, elegant, and luxurious design
- Self-cleansing nozzles ensure low maintenance of the showerhead
- The high-pressure water spray is amazing.
- Plastic (ABS) construction rather than metal. It is sturdy, but still plastic is plastic.
- It consumes a large amount of water
- (I am not sure if I can out this) Some Amazon customers complained the product is not durable.
Dual Shower Head
When it comes to your pleasure and relaxation needs, who says you can’t be extravagant? If one is good, two is better. Dual shower head system combines two shower heads in one convenient unit, combining the convenience of two different types of shower experiences in one shower. The shower heads can differ in size and function. For example, a dual shower might include a fixed showerhead like the Sparkrod mentioned above and a standard hand-held shower head, and spray settings are controlled on each shower head individually. Also, dual showerhead systems include a diverter valve to control water flow. This diverter valves could either be two-way diverter valves that switch between the two shower heads or a three-way diverter valves that let you choose between the individual showerheads or both shower heads at the same time. It all depends on your taste (Yeah, that is luxury). The diverter often includes a bracket to hold the hand-held shower head.
Before we even dabble into the features of this amazing product, it is worthy to inform you that this product comes in square designs and oval-square design, and that is another sign of luxury. It features a luxurious rainfall showerhead for drenching rainfall showerhead or the new state-of-the-art hand shower. The rain showerhead is 3” larger than the standard 6” showerheads in the market, this allows for a shoulder-to-shoulder water flow coverage. There is also an angle-adjustable solid brass ball joint nut for reliable leak-free connection, with a premium all-chrome finish. It’s sleek and luxurious.

Curved Curtain Rods
The beauty a curved shower curtain rods can add to your bathroom is mesmerizing, and that is probably the main reason they are widely used in hotels. A curved shower curtain rod will provide up to 33% more room in the shower. The design of it keeps water inside the shower instead of leaking out unto the bathroom floor. It also keeps the wet, sticky shower curtain further away from your body.
The NeverRust curved shower rods are made from aluminum, and unlike steel and even stainless steel – aluminum will never rust. The shining aluminum curved rod provides up to 6.5 inches of addition elbow room (when extended to 72”) giving your shower a more spacious feel (Yeah, spacious is luxurious too). It features a patented TwistTight installation that is fast, simple and easy, you simply extend the rod to fit your space and twist to keep it firmly in place and twist it firmly in place with no tools, no drilling and no damage to drywall or tiles.
- Quick and easy installation.
- The material is made of aluminum, which never rusts.
- The curve wouldn’t stay at the right angle. Ideally, you want it facing horizontally away from the tub, but it would slowly tilt so it was facing down over a couple days. This made it difficult to fully pull the curtains to the wall.
- The metal “cups” on the end dug in and wrecked the paint on my wall. They’re also big, so I couldn’t quite shut the curtain all the way.
Back exfoliator is ideal for cleaning hard-to-reach areas like your back. Not only do they perform the cleaning task well, but it also stimulates proper blood circulation and eliminates dead skin cells, leaving your skin smooth, fresh and rejuvenated. However, traditional exfoliators are handheld, wait, what if you can mount your back exfoliator on the wall? Isn’t that luxurious? Yes.

You then snap all suction cups to luck them in place on your wall. A luffa pad then attaches to the board using Velcro. The luffoliate is perfect to get those hard-to-reach spots on your back and get rid of that back acne once and for all. This exfoliator is also easy to clean and maintain.

You don’t have to break the bank to enjoy a life of luxury. It just requires the proper selection of bathroom accessories to serve one or two purposes. After all, luxury is all about being a little bit lazy and classy. Our vast experience in interior decoration helped us select some of the best products on the market, they are not really costly but they will definitely serve your purpose and move your shower from a home level to the luxurious level. Luxury is also about carefully selecting your accessories to meet your taste, some of the features above can be used together, while your bathroom may only need one option. For instance, you can install a back scrubber along with a shower panel as they don’t really have anything in common (except that they are both luxurious), but it isn’t really advisable to install a showerhead, a dual showerhead, and a shower panel in a single bathroom, except of course you want a luxuriously luxurious bathroom. We wish you the best on your voyage to luxury.
