If you’ve spent any time at all perusing steam showers, you’ll notice that they’re available in a whole range of sizes. The trick to choosing the right one for you depends entirely on your lifestyle and the actual space you have available in your home. At first glance, you might think that most bathrooms can barely comfortably accommodate three people let alone a toilet, sink, bathtub, and steam shower unit. Look more closely and you’ll see that steam showers also come in a shower-bathtub combination. So, there’s no excuse not to consider installing a steam shower in a small bathroom space.
Beyond the actual steam shower dimensions, you might also consider whether you’re interested in a one-person or a two-person steam shower cabin. The larger the unit, the more you’ll be able to fit into it. Rather than having a corner, fold-up bench, you could have two long benches or a built-in, curved lounge chair. Doesn’t that sound luxurious?!
Once you’ve decided on the size of the steam shower and the accessories you’d like to add, like an aromatherapy dispenser, chromatherapy lights, Bluetooth capability – there are lots of way that you can customize your steam shower experience! – you’re going to need to turn your attention to the steam generator.
Steam generators, as the name suggests, is what produces all that wonderful steam in the cabin. You pour the required amount of water into the tank; you turn it on, and voilà, luxurious and relaxing steam! More than at any other time, this is when you need expert advice. If you choose a steam generator that’s too small for the size of steam shower you’ve bought, it won’t produce a satisfying amount of steam. Too big, and the generator will produce too much which will end up costing you on your energy bill.
There is some leeway, though. If you’re hoping to reduce costs where possible, here is one option for you. You can purchase a 110V generator for your larger steam shower unit (instead of a 220V generator), but only if the size of your steam shower allows for it.
