It’s starting to get hot and humid in the country, adding to the toll of personal issues that we currently face—not to mention the challenges of the still raging pandemic. To ease these tensions however briefly, nothing beats a nice, long shower. You just turn the knob, stand there and breathe slowly.

If you are planning a renovation, there is no other perfect time than today to add a shower in the bathroom or upgrade the old one. It isn’t only aesthetic or chic, it can also help with one’s well-being. Oh, you will be surprised by the abundance of choices on Wilcon Depot’s catalogue.


If you want to be traditional, pick the classic wall-mounted showerhead from Pozzi. The brand uses high quality plastic and metal, making the item durable even against corrosive chemicals. This type is still the easiest to install and can work for smaller bathrooms.


If you want to take control, this is the type for you. The hand-held showerhead is flexible. You can focus on a specific area of your body and control the water pressure. Go for the silver Grohe Tempesta, with four pressure settings to boot. Go modern with Sefa, a black finish showerhead guaranteed to last long.


A personal favorite, this type really simulates the soothing sensation of a downpour. Buy the sleek and industrial Grohe SmartActive 310 Rainshower, which provides two spray patterns and gives you full helm over the “heaviness” of your cleansing bath.

Want the best of both worlds? You can opt for a type with the hand-held and rainshower component. Birke, for example, allows you to take control with one option and completely surrender with another. This is easy to install and conserves water. It is made with long lasting stainless steel that’s easy to clean.


If two options are still too little, enjoy another feature with panel showers. It gives you overhead and handheld showerheads plus body massage jets. You may think it takes up so much space, but you actually just need to install it on the wall. Sefa’s panel shower is made from topnotch stainless steel. It is lead-free, acid-proof, alkali-resistant and noncorrosive.


We are in the digital world after all, so why wouldn’t we expect this find in the marketplace? The best thing about this item is the exact control it offers. Look at Grohe’s model. You can choose a specific temperature, spray pattern and so much more. It modernizes the bathroom because of the user-friendly panel with back-lit icons. It also has a safety shutoff to prevent the thermal shock we all dread.
