Signature Hardware Oxford Thermostatic The Signature Hardware Oxford Thermostatic is a two-piece riser unit that offers the option of an extended-height installation, so it's perfect for tall users who are tired of stooping.

Editor's Notes

September 12, 2020:

Because it offers better variety, coming as it does in several sizes and finishes, the NearMoon Rainfall takes the place of the HealthyLifeStyle Luxury at this time. The NearMoon choice is an adjustable arm and rainfall head combo; it has no built-in restrictor, which allows it to offer a comfortable experience — although not exactly an eco-friendly one. But if you already have a shower head you wish to continue using, we think the ever-popular Moen Waterhill remains a great option. It's a cinch to install, and its flange is more attractive than the flange found on many other models. The Delta Addison remains a fine alternative, and we have added the Brizo Litze as a top option, as well. This model doesn't come cheap, but it pairs wide adjustability with an eye-catching, durable gold finish, for a model that is both useful and attractive. At the other end of the price and simplicity spectrum, we kept the G-Promise Extender. You can't adjust it all that much, but at the very least, it helps move your shower head away from the wall.

April 05, 2019:

We looked at many styles of shower arm extensions that will fit most shower set ups, but variations do occur, so be sure to take time to examine the provided measurements before making a choice. That said, we think the Moen Waterhill and Delta Addison are both top options for many users. Neither is particularly tough to install, and they're both stylish but not overly noticeable or garish. The Moen is the more expensive of the two, which is understandable, given the brand's durability and longevity. For those who want something straight, rather than curved, we kept the Aqua Elegante and added the G-Promise Extender. The former lives up to its name and is indeed elegant, but you may need to re-tighten and adjust it from time to time. The latter is for bringing your shower head closer to the user and is one of the simplest options you'll find. Finally, we decided to remove the HotelSpa 1116. It has a design quirk that makes it too easy to install at weird angles, leaving many users frustrated. For an alternative, consider the Sprite Flexible Chrome, which arrives with shower head included.
