If there's one place we hadn't though about adding color before, it was a showerhead. But, now the showerhead — like the iPod and the laptop and the toaster — come in a rainbow of colors. Thank goodness! And thank you, Grohe!
The only thing we'd worry about is a color dating faster than, say, a stainless steel showerhead, but one of these colors might be great in a kids shower or a beach house. So far, we have heard through New England Home magazine that the Rainshower Icon is available at Sachs Plumbing Supplies in Stamford, Connecticut, (203) 325-1355. Also available in green.
Grohe says that the showerhead is water efficient and designed in an oval shape, rather than the usual round shape, to better spray over the human body (which is not round). It won a red dot design award in 2009.
We have inquired through Grohe to see where else in the United States this product is available and will let you know in the comments section if we find out.
