How to Tall Hack Your Shower

This tallhack can improve your life substantially – use a shower head extender to make your shower fit your height.

While browsing Instagram with Tallsome, I came across a lot of people, mostly tall guys, who didn’t quite fit into their showers.

Besides planes with too little leg room, the low shower heads are probably among the most frequent #tallpeopleproblems on Instagram.Being tall seems to be a relatively new concept, since older houses never feature showers that that are appropriately high mounted.

There is a solution to the shower problem

You can actually easily fix your shower by installing a shower head extender. Instead of me explaining every step, I’m gonna recommend this Youtube-guide with a tall man explaining how it’s done:

He says that he bought his shower arm in HomeDepot, but I can’t find the exact same as he is using – check out this HomeDepot search on shower extender. However, I found this Swan Shower Extension on Amazon, which is $25 dollars and looks a little better than the one in the video.

Luxury Rain Shower

An installation of  the “real ones” that are ceiling mounted require some changes in the plumbing to make the pipes come from the ceiling. But at, you can extend your wall outlet with an arm and a rain shower head. Check out the different possibilities here  Rain ShowerHeads Have your tried some version of shower head extender?
