Q: I want a rain-style showerhead and would like a little guidance. What new features should I look for in a rain-style head?

A: Rain-style showers are flooding the market, thanks to new water-saving technology and fancy features. Here are three of my favorite rain-style shower systems.

  1. Wireless speakers. These rain heads actually include a portable wireless speaker that lets you take a shower with your favorite music.
  2. Water tile panels. These overhead showers are flush with the ceiling and built into an ambient-lighted panel. Rain washes you while colorful lights sooth you.
  3. Rainstorm showers. These rain-style systems store water in a hidden reservoir and can produce a burst of warm summer rain to wash away your winter blues.
