The old shower was basically a rubber hose with a handle and a showerhead at the end. The water was running from your head to your toes and that is it. Nothing special. but with time came special shower heads, massaging shower heads, with 10 different functions. Later on came the Body sprays, that will spray water onto our body from the side. This can also be massaging, or any other type of suiting.
The industry recognized that taking a shower is not just an act of humans, in purpose of getting clean. It became clear that it relaxing, regenerating capabilities make it a necessary must in a household. At this point we are talking about the enjoyment of taking a shower, not the purpose of it. I'm sure people would take showers even if they were not dirty in some way. I know I would.
Showers became so popular in the US, that more and more people got rid of their bathtubs. If they had a choice between a shower cabin and a bathtub, any of the would choose a shower cabin.
Even efficiency wise a shower will consume much less hot water than a bathtub.
Nowadays, you can have as many body sprays installed in your shower as you like, the only thing is the water pressure that needs to be considered, because if the pressure is low, than the more sprays you have the less pressure will get to your showerhead.
Talking about showerheads, there are some many to choose from. There is one of my own favorites, the so called flood showers. It is basically like standing underneath a waterfall. I have never tried it, but it must be a great feeling. The other favorite of mine is the rain showerheads. These also require a solid water pressure, but if you have it, they are great. Even fancier are the sky shower installations. They are basically very similar to the rains showers, except that they are installed inside the ceiling, so if you take a shower it is like standing in the rain.
There are also shower columns, shower sets, and other installations that you might see every day. They can bring the same joy to your life as the other type of installations, if you choose wisely. Some of them come with faucets, some don't.
the only thing I would like to mention about faucets, is that if you buy one, consider buying a thermostatic faucet for your shower. You will not regret it. I have one like that, and it has been much nicer than any other type I ever had. You will not burn yourself, you will not jump out of the shower, because it is too cold. They are just great.
