Need advice on installing overhead rain shower head

I am remodeling my bathroom and need some advice on placement of a rain shower head. I plan to install it in the ceiling and already have the rough plumbing done. I'm now trying to decide how low it should drop. I have 8 foot ceilings and I'm rather short (5'3"). I purchased a 10" round rain shower head and the only options for vertical shower arms are 4" or 6" shower arm. Does the height of the shower head affect the rain effect of these types of shower heads? Since it's a vertical water stream, I would guess there's not much outward splashing, but should I be concerned about the water splashing out onto the outside floor since the top of my shower door is below the bottom of the shower head (if I use the 6")? My shower dimensions are 3 feet x 6 feet and the shower head is centered in both directions.
