Fountain head

Few things ruin a guest experience like an anemic shower. But water pressure is only part of the equation. Hospitality showerheads are functional fixtures, of course, but their forms are increasingly important to guests, especially at high-end properties.

Here are five key trends in hospitality showerheads to inspire your new property or renovation design:

SMARTER SHOWERS:

Thanks to the rise of the Internet of Things, guests are growing accustomed to using touchscreens everywhere. And now that functionality extends to the shower. Several manufacturers produce showerheads with integrated touchscreens so guests can select functions from a display. Some models even feature timers or wireless/Bluetooth connectivity so patrons can turn on and warm up the shower before they get out of bed.

MAKER MOVEMENT:

Makers are having their moment and manufacturers are taking notice with unadorned utilitarian showerheads in traditional matte or high-gloss finishes. This aesthetic is particularly suited to urban hotels, especially properties in warehouse districts or those in rehabbed industrial buildings.

DOUBLE DIP:

Why stop at a showerhead? Many hoteliers are giving guests more options with showers that include a mounted showerhead and a handheld fixture.

SLEEK & SLIM:

While extra-large rain showerheads are still popular, some hotel designers are moving in the opposite direction, creating ultra-thin fixtures that produce a cleansing waterfall-like stream with contemporary style. This style is especially useful in smaller spaces that would be overwhelmed by a larger head.

REASONABLE RINSE:

With the entire hospitality industry focused on reducing water usage, manufacturers are devising new water-saving showerheads for hotels. One promising development uses air to produce bigger drops, so the shower feels luxurious without increasing water use. These innovations not only reduce consumption, but they appeal to the 50 percent of travellers in a Booking.com survey who said sustainability is a key factor in considering, “a destination they would not have otherwise been interested in.”
