Sometimes waiting for something works in your favor, like waiting hours for that super delicious chili to finish simmering. Other times, the last thing you want to do is wait. Enter the Fast-Start Warm-Up function on a steam shower.

Let me note right here that not every steam generator comes equipped with this feature. So, when you’re ready to bring a luxurious and relaxing steam shower into your home, consider whether you want one with a Fast-Start Warm-Up function.

Steam generators can take up to 15 minutes to heat the water and release warm steam. One with a Fast-Start Warm-Up feature will take only about 1 minute to bring the water – and subsequently, the steam – to the ideal temperature. Some even come with an “always on” feature.

You’ve installed the steam shower or the whirlpool bathtub you’ve always dreamed of. Now, you’re looking at the space leftover in your bathroom and wondering how you’re ever going to fit a vanity in there.

Choosing the right vanity isn’t just an issue for those people with small bathrooms. The type of vanity you choose affects the entire look of your bathroom.


So, to help you choose well, I want to point out that there is such a thing as a corner bathroom vanity unit. The corner unit not only works to maximize space in small bathrooms, it also functions as a focal point in both large and small bathrooms.

What do you think of corner bathroom vanities?

The bathroom vanity is such a vital part of our daily lives. If it didn’t keep all of our stuff organized, it would be really hard to get out on time in the morning, especially if you have kids. Just think, without the right vanity you’ll end up looking at the clutter every morning. That alone could make you want to step into the steam shower and just stay there until you forget about the mess!

So, when it comes time to renovate – or simply upgrade – your bathroom, give the vanity a lot of thought.

One decision you’ll have to make is whether to opt for a single or double vanity. Here’s what you need to know about each.

You know a single vanity is perfect if…

  • you have a small bathroom
  • you can’t afford higher plumbing costs than are already necessary
  • you live alone or you and your family members use the sink and counter at different times
  • you’re working with a small budget

You know a double vanity is perfect if…

  • multiple family members ned to use the sink and counter space at the same time
  • you have a large bathroom and a larger budget
  • you need more room to store toiletries
