If you’re remodeling your bathroom or looking to upgrade your bathtub, all of the various features and specific details you find while browsing bathtubs may be overwhelming. This article will describe some of the common features of bathtubs to help you pick the right style, size and type for your bathroom.

SteamShowersInc.com offers air-jet bathtubs, free-standing bathtubs, walk in bathtubs, dip-in bathtubs, drop-in bathtubs and whirlpool bathtubs. All of these bathtubs can be used in hydrotherapy, or the medicinal use of water on the body to reduce pain, promote relaxation and improve circulation to ease the muscles. Hydrotherapy is also a form of physical therapy.

Whirlpool massage jets provide a deep massage that helps tired muscles and improves circulation. These jets shoot water to provide hydrotherapy to the body. Air jets, on the other hand, shoot bubbles of air that gently massage the body. This also creates circulation but offers a softer massage. Air jets clean themselves if you run them after draining the tub.

Walk in bathtubs offer a safer alternative of getting into a bathtub that is necessary for those who are worried about falling. This includes elderly people or people who have suffered a bodily injury. Additionally, depending upon which model you choose, walk in bathtubs on SteamShowersInc.com come with built-in seats, grab bars and textured bottoms for safety. Our walk in bathtubs are ADA compliant and come with whirlpool jets and air jets, or air jets alone, depending upon your preference and needs. Walk in bathtubs also come with handheld showerheads and come in six standard sizes for ease of installation. These units are made of reinforced acrylic and can easily replace your old set up. Furthermore, everyone in the home will be able to enjoy the walk in bathtub.

The Ariel Platinum line of bathtubs offers more luxurious features in all-in-one units that are convenient to install. These include jets, chromatherapy lighting and FM Radio. Chromatherapy is the use of colored lights to influence a person’s mood. For example, the color red stimulates emotion while the color blue relaxes and brings peace to the person.

These models come in a variety of styles, including narrow models that are see through and larger corner bathtubs that accommodate more than one person. The Ariel BT-062 Whirlpool Bathtub is a great choice for those wanting a more vintage look that still includes claw legs, six hydro-massage whirlpool jets and a handheld showerhead. Alternatively, the Ariel BT-150150 Whirlpool Bathtub is an extremely modern corner bathtub model with side by side head rests for those wanting a contemporary look. It is capable of holding 98 gallons of water, includes a computer control panel and nine hydro-massage whirlpool jets. The front of the unit is accented with tempered glass.

With a ready-to-go bathtub unit with multiple features included, there’s no need for excess remodeling work in order to create the bathroom experience of your dreams. Remember to always measure how much space you have available before ordering your new bathtub. If you have further questions, please call us at 1-800-304-3598.

Corner steam showers are smart on space. Just because you have a smaller bathroom doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice on products that will make your bathroom more modern and make you feel better after using them. Having a bathroom with a corner steam shower doesn’t mean you can’t upgrade to a steam shower unit and use it for both regular showers and steam showers using a steam generator.

Corner steam showers from SteamShowersInc.com are a great alternative to customer corner steam showers, which can be more costly. Creating a customer steam shower may mean having to retile, install a special, airtight door, create a sloped ceiling and buy each part separately, including the steam generator and any extra features you would like to have, like music and aromatherapy.

Additionally, our steam showers come with various features, depending on which model you go with. Our different units include a steam generator, multiple shower heads, body massage jets, computer control panel with timer, etc. Ariel Platinum units may include surround sound speakers, chromatherapy lighting and an aromatherapy system.

These extra features will change showering as you know it. Body massage jets will help release the tension in your tired muscles, chromatherapy lighting will add a new aspect you’ve never tried before and aromatherapy can add calming and relaxing essential oils to the shower experience. Most of all, bathing with steam will open up various possibilities for enhancing relaxation, cleansing the skin and bringing relief to the respiratory system.

These all-in-one units are also convenient to install. They come with simple, standard hot and cold water lines and drop in style drains. This convenience gives you the freedom to do more with your space. For example, perhaps with a corner steam shower you will now have the room you need to add a wall between the toilet and the rest of the bathroom. Having a corner steam shower may also make the bathroom look less cluttered and give it more open space.

The look and features of your corner steam shower will vary with which model you choose to install. Some models accommodate more than one person simultaneously, making a steam shower an experience you can share with your partner. We offer different colors and styles, from rectangular units to curved, round units and units with steps leading up to the shower floor. You may want a modern, stainless steel look or a white, traditional look to match the rest of your bathroom. Perhaps you want a steam shower with wooden floor and ceiling or you prefer an acrylic material.

Furthermore, we offer two corner steam shower units that come with a whirlpool bathtub: The Ariel 701 Steam Shower with Whirlpool Bathtub and the Ariel SS-608A Steam Shower with Whirlpool Bathtub. Each of these models accommodate two users at once.

On SteamShowersInc.com, click on the tab on the website under steam showers and you can browse solely corner steam showers if you know that’s what you will need. We carry corner steam showers from Ariel, Ariel Platinum and Ariel AmeriSteam. You can also use the Quick Search function to browse corner steam showers.

One health benefit that you may not expect to receive from your steam shower unit is improved quality and length of sleep. Improved sleep also leads to greater quality of health in other areas, including avoiding viral infections, weight loss, lowering blood pressure and increasing mental concentration.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults require at least seven to nine hours of sleep each night, while teenagers require between eight and a half and nine and a quarter hours each night. It’s important to practice good sleep hygiene, including creating a routine for falling asleep and going to bed at the same hours each night. Not getting enough sleep can result in inability to concentrate in the work place, inability to drive safely while fatigued and a higher risk of contracting a common cold and lowered immunity.

First, decide what time you are going to go to sleep each night. Most likely, you need a minimum of seven hours each night. Then, prepare a sleep routine that you will begin each night at least 30 minutes before you want to fall asleep, but it can last as long as an hour.

A sleep routine may look different for everyone. Some people like to eat a small snack before bed, read a book, exercise or take a shower or bath. Taking a steam shower or a bath with steam can be effective for helping you fall asleep for several reasons. First of all, a steam shower is great for promoting relaxation. Steam increases blood circulation, which relieves achy and tired muscles. This releases tension from your muscles and helps your body relax. It also creates mental relaxation. Studies have shown that steam increases the deepness and length of sleep as well and that the act of heating yourself during a sleep routine will create a better quality of sleep.

Additionally, the relaxation that steam brings may be especially helpful to those that suffer from chronic pain. If you have chronic pain that is keeping you awake at night, a steam shower before bed may help you get the relaxation you need to fall asleep and rejuvenate your body and revitalize your energy level. On the other hand, you may have an allergy, a cold or a breathing problem that is hampering your sleep. Bathing with steam also helps improve breathing and this may be the help you need before bed.

You may own or be able to purchase a steam shower unit with an aromatherapy system. This means you can add relaxing scents to your showers before bed to comfort yourself before falling asleep. Lavender is a very relaxing scent and can be added to a steam shower by using essential oils in the aromatherapy system.

It’s important to stick to your bed routine each night. When you get into bed, turn off all electronics and lights that may distract you from falling to sleep. A healthy diet and exercise will also help you obtain better sleep. Do not neglect sleep; better sleep means better memory and lower levels of depression. Additionally, a relaxing sleep routine may be healthier than sleeping pills. Take a steam shower at night to improve your breathing, relax your body and help you achieve longer periods of deeper sleep.
