Ceiling or top-mounted shower heads are quite popular here in Perth. As the name implies, these shower heads are mounted on the ceiling, and they spray directly underneath. Ceiling or top-mounted shower heads are essentially rainfall shower heads mounted on the ceiling.

Here, at Alpine Building Products, we offer an excellent selection of ceiling / top-mounted shower heads for you to choose for your new bathroom. Our Round Shower Head, Slim Round Shower, Square Shower Head, Slim Square Shower and Cube Shower Head Black are all excellent choices.

2. Rainfall shower head

Rainfall shower heads are by far the most popular type of shower head in Perth. Such shower heads are designed to simulate the water flow of rain. It provides a gentle shower stream and gives you a chance to enjoy a relaxing showering experience. While rainfall shower heads can be ceiling mounted, running plumbing in the ceiling can be difficult and costly. That’s why wall-mounted rainfall shower heads are also available in the market.

If you’re looking for rainfall shower heads in Perth for your bathroom renovation, you’ll find none better than those offered in our collection. We offer a wide range of ceiling / top-mounted rainfall shower heads. But if you’d prefer a wall mounted shower head, we also have a range of shower arms that will allow for wall mounting.

3. Fixed / Single/ Wall-Mount shower head

Wall-mount shower heads, also known as fixed or single shower heads are the traditional choice. Such shower heads are usually found in small apartments and basic condos. While these are simple shower heads which are incredibly budget-friendly, they’re also easy to install. Such shower heads offer basic water flow, but you’ll also find shower heads with different flow mechanisms.

While we don’t offer complete wall-mounted shower heads at Alpine Building Products, you can easily purchase one of our shower arms to convert any ceiling / top-mounted shower head into a wall-mounted unit.

4. Handheld shower head

A handheld shower head is a special type of shower head which consists of a shower head attached to a hosepipe. They offer full body coverage without needing to move and position your body unnecessarily. Handheld shower heads are incredibly affordable, and they offer a great compromise between expensive shower heads and cheap wall-mounted units.

At Alpine Building Products, we offer one of the largest ranges of handheld shower heads in Perth that are ideal for bathroom renovations. Check out our Charli Hand Shower and our Cube Handheld Shower. You won’t go wrong in choosing either of these shower heads.

5. Twin Shower Set / Rail Shower Sets
