Steam showers are becoming more popular as the home spa trend spreads across the nation and the world. Everyone wants to be able to feel the benefits of steam right in the comfort of their own home. We know that steam showers can be installed in nearly every size bathroom – even small ones! So, what else do you need to know?

How about this: how much is the entire steam shower going to cost?

The first distinction to make is whether or not you’re interested in installing a custom made steam shower or a pre-fabricated unit. A custom steam shower is definitely going to cost you more than purchasing a pre-made modular unit. You’ll have to be able to cover the cost of the tile and tile installation. You may also have to hire a contractor to slope the ceiling over the steam shower so that the water droplets drain properly. You’ll have to choose and purchase all the accessories separately – like the shower head, shower controls, steam generator, bench – and specialty products, like an aromatherapy dispenser kit and chromatherapy lights.

Pre-fabricated steam shower units can cost as low as $2000 (check for sales!) and as high as $11000. The difference depends on size and accessories. Steam shower accessories can run between $900 and $1500. The cost of those accessories is included in the overall price of the unit. Read through each steam shower’s description to locate the unit that has all the accessories you’re looking for.

So, you’ve picked out your steam shower will all the accessories you want. Now you’re wondering if you can afford to operate it over the long run. The simple answer is yes! Steam shower units are very efficient. The steam generators use very little water (about 1-1.5 gallons) and electricity. A typical 15 minutes steam shower can cost an average of 2¢!

When you think of a spa day, what comes to mind? Probably a bunch of women wandering around in robes sipping on fruit cocktails and snacking on tasting sweets, right? It’s no secret that the spa industry has peddled its wares directly to women for a very long time. Women should enjoy that pampering.

Men may not come right out and say it, but they would love to sink into the comforts of a spa day, too. They might not like hanging around in robes, but they would absolutely love the treatments.

Looking to take dad out for the day? Look for spas that offer a “Just For Dad” service. These are treatments that specialize in overall health and wellness. He’ll get a relaxing massage, time in a steam shower, and depending on the facility, many other amenities, too.

Look for packages that offer a haircut and scalp massage. Men love facials too, especially if they’re paired with a locally brewed beer. Your dad probably spends a lot of time on his feet. So, treat him to a foot massage. He’ll also appreciate hot herbal towel therapy followed up with deep tissue back massage.
