While looking to improve your home bathroom, you may be considering adding a steam shower. (See our post on Breaking Down a Luxury Bathroom Design for more information on home bathroom design.) An at-home steam shower is relaxing and incredibly convenient. You’ll no longer have to go all the way to the gym or the spa to enjoy a steam session when you can do so in your own home. The question you’ll want to ask while remodeling your home bathroom is: are most steam showers also a regular shower?
The answer is:
Yes, most modern steam showers are also a regular shower!
At-home steam showers fall into two different categories: custom steam showers and pre-fabricated steam showers. A custom steam shower is built in the bathroom using tile, a steam generator, a shower head and other additional options. A pre-fabricated steam shower unit is an all-in-one purchase that can be connected to the existing water supply and electrical power. Prefab steam shower units are made up of the shower enclosure, steam generator, shower head and more. The shower enclosure is typically made up of tempered glass, metal and acrylic paneling or sauna wood panels. These units sometimes come with additional luxury features, like FM radio, massage jets, aromatherapy and more.
Generally, you won’t need both a shower and a steam room to enjoy a steam session in your home. Either of the above options can be installed to include both options, so that the same shower enclosure can be used for both average showers and steam showers.
The following is an example of what a custom steam shower may look like. It is the only shower in the bathroom alongside a freestanding bathtub. The design of the bathroom, including the tile and fixtures, is beautiful. Natural light flows in from the large windows and gives the space a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
