Raised Shower Heads for Tall People 8


When you hear about tall people problems, low shower heads are usually at the top of the list. Maybe it’s because most people shower first thing in the morning, when they are grumpy at the world, and it’s like the shower head is the first of the day to say, “Wow you’re tall!”. Enough’s enough, let’s show those shower heads whose boss! Below are some raised shower heads for tall people.

Raised Shower Heads for Tall People

The first and most versatile solution is the adjustable height shower head bar (above pic). Its biggest advantage is that people of a variety of heights can get the shower head into just the right position. Though remember, tall people, your household shorties would appreciate you lowering the shower head after you’re done, especially if you mess with the massage settings. The main downside of this style shower head is that you need to drill new holes in you showers wall…

If you don’t feel you need that much adjust-ability, you might do OK with a simple pivoting shower head extension arm. Finally, if you don’t live with any shorties at all, then you might go for the overhead ceiling shower head (preferably pimped out with led lights) or just keep it simple with an S-style shower arm. Another handy adaptation is the curved shower rod, as it provides more shoulder room so your wide shoulders aren’t always rubbing up against that cold, slimy shower curtain.

    We installed one of the S style shower head extensions. The water pressure drops too low to shower. Do you know of a fix for this? I’m wondering if this same problem would occur with one of the shower heads that has the built in extension.

      There will be some pressure drop for sure. If it’s a big drop it could be that you over-tightened it. Make sure to use Teflon tape to prevent leaks without requiring too much tightening. Even though I have an adjustable one, I still to have a bit of pressure drop. But I like to think of it as saving water 🙂
