How to Install a Showerhead in 5 Minutes + a Giveaway

A big thanks to Delta Faucet and Home Depot for partnering with me on this post. As always, all content and opinions are 100% my own

Y’all. It’s way too often I find myself wishing I had an “[Insert skill here] for Dummies” handbook with me at all times.

What did we do before Google? And YouTube? If you’ve ever found inspiration on this blog, you can probably bet a whooooole lot of Googling happened to pull it off. (Like installing our train wreck concrete countertops that about gave me a heart attack. I still shudder thinking about that one.)

The other day, we finally ventured on a project in our master bathroom that we’ve been meaning to do since its big makeover. Last year, I gave our shower an industrial factory window style look (for waaaay cheap)…

…but it was still missing one much needed upgrade:  Ye old showerhead.

I always have to remind myself that home wasn’t built in a day. We’ve gotten to the point where we can now upgrade the little things we’ve missed in our past room makeovers. But I’d finally had enough trying to clean this blasted shower with its itty bitty stationary showerhead.

Delta Faucet saved the day with this guy:

I honestly thought this showerhead was going to take a solid hour or two to install. Nope. 5 minutes. No joke.

My “contractor” was very serious about his job. 😉

This hubs of mine is a total nutcase. DIY projects are never boring with him, I’ll tell ya that.

3. Remove any old plumber’s tape from the faucet and wrap a couple of fresh strips of plumber’s tape around the end.

6. Clip the hand shower piece into the showerhead and wham bam done. No “Showerhead Installing for Dummies” handbook required.

And we didn’t have to pay a plumber and spend an afternoon waiting around to do it.

I’m actually excited to clean our shower now. Is that weird?

It has water-saving capabilities of H2Okinetic Technology to control speed, movement, and droplet size, so it actually feels like a rain shower but uses less water.

We’ve had it for nearly a week now and showers officially feel like a little spa escape… which this mama really really needs most days.

And I’m thinking now we need another one of these in our hallway bathroom to wrangle Olivia and Lola at bathtime. (That’s always an adventure.)

  1. I’m so glad I found your blog through BetterAfter! Your kitchen makeover is fantastic! But this is more important: A while back I fell in love with your shower glass door but I lost the link somewhere in space! I’m so glad I found you again. And your shower head tutorial is great.

  2. That shower head looks awesome! We are currently building our new house and the standard shower heads are so basic. This one looks like a fantastic alternative! Thanks for sharing the tutorial!

    1. It’s sooo worth the switch. Makes me think we should have gotten this one years ago when we first moved in instead of wrestling with the old one.

  3. We have the same shower head (and used to have one with the handle in our old house) and it is so hard to clean the shower without the handle! As if I didn’t already procrastinate cleaning it as it were, now I’m like I have to wait until I have enough time to clean the shower and then take a shower because I’m going to get wet. How long is nap time again?! Yep, not happening today. (Also, I’m fairly certain we moved into the same neighborhood as you this fall. Small world. Just wanted to say hi from down the road :))

    1. Kara! Oh my gosh! I totally just stalked our neighborhood FB group and sure enough, there you are. Or at least I’m pretty sure it’s you. Small world. 🙂 I’m right there with ya. I’m so not cleaning a shower without a handle and drenching myself when I have zero time to clean anyway.

  4. and for tall people, like moi, this adds about 6″ to the shower head, so it’s much more accomodating. And LOVE your shower doors.

  5. Oh My Goodness it looks wonderful! Thanks for the tutorial! Mr. Fixit is a “scream”! I would love to have one of these. If I don’t win I will have to get one. Have a very Merry Christmas!

    1. Thanks, Susan! There’s never a dull moment doing projects with this Mr. Fixit. Total silly goose. Merry Christmas to you too!
