Bathing in an at-home steam shower is an immersive experience. In a steam shower, you sit down and let the steam envelop your body. You may also be able to use spa features, including FM Radio, aromatherapy and a foot massager. Even if you don’t notice it at first, a part of what makes a steam shower such an amazing experience is the effect the steam shower lights have. Without the steam shower lights, the shower enclosure would be much darker inside. Enhance your steam shower with steam shower lighting fixtures.
Steam shower lighting fixtures are used in both custom steam showers and prefabricated steam showers. For a custom steam shower project, you will have to purchase the lights separately and have them installed by the professional who is putting your shower together. There are light kits available for steam shower projects. In a prefabricated steam shower model, the steam shower lighting fixtures are usually included in the purchase.
Steam shower lighting fixtures help create the right atmosphere. They are also important for safety, so that the user can see inside of the shower. You may not be accustomed to having lights inside of your shower. With most average showers, the main bathroom light is the only one that is turned on before using the shower. However, the current bathroom trends include large, over-sized, walk-in showers. With these types of showers, you may need additional lighting to enjoy the perfect shower experience and to ensure safety during use.

Light fixtures to consider for your steam shower project include ceiling lights, wall mounted lights, LED lighting, spectrum lighting, waterproof lighting, low-voltage lighting and dimmable lights.
Of course, the lights will have to be replaced when the bulbs go out, just like with any other lighting fixture. For most units on Steam Showers Inc, we recommend purchasing T9 bulbs from a home improvement store like Ace Hardware, Home Depot or Lowes.
The number of lights necessary to illuminate the shower will depend upon the strength of the light and the size of the shower. For example, a bigger shower will require more lighting.

Chromatherapy lighting is another type of popular steam shower lighting fixture. Chromatherapy is a mood lighting and is known as an alternative medicine that originated in Ancient China. Chromatherapy involves the affect that different colors have on human psychology; it’s been used to treat depression, memory problems, lack of energy and appetite and stress. In steam shower units from Steam Showers Inc that include chromatherapy lighting, you can choose one color of light or you can let the colors cycle as you enjoy a steam session.
