Showerheads aren't just about water flow. Their overall shape can have a big impact on the look and feel of a bathroom, too. From brutally minimalist industrial chrome tubing designs to graceful, flowing styles that appear almost organic, the lowly showerhead as a decorative statement has definitely arrived. Add some drama to your 15 minutes of morning water play with a daring shower fixture that will urbanize your dwelling and give it an uptown sensibility.

We also like glass-look showerheads that mimic the appearance of ice. They have a clean, fresh look that's right at home in a bathroom. If you're a devotee of glass block windows and accessories, glass design showerheads will make you want to get back in the water again -- and again.
