Steam Shower Controls And Features Explained


july 11

Talk about a luxurious experience! There’s little that compares to stepping into your very own steam shower for a bit of rest and relaxation. If you’re considering adding this slice of heaven to your home, you might be feeling a bit confused about which of the features and accessories you should add on. So, here’s a run-down of what’s available and what makes each one so valuable.

Control Headquarters

Steam showers come equipped with an easy-to-reach control panel so you can adjust your steam shower experience with little effort. Some steam showers come with a remote control allowing you to program the steam, lights, music, and more before you even set foot in your shower.

Handheld Shower Head

Most steam showers offer a handheld shower head option that allows you to direct the spray of water without even having to stand up.

Rainfall Shower Head

The large rainfall shower head is installed overhead. It’s much larger in size than a typical shower head. If you close your eyes, it’s easy to believe that you’re standing under a soft rain falling in the rain forest.

Hydro Massage Jets

Hydro massage jets direct the spray of water to acupressure points on your body. The direction in which they spray can be adjusted. Whether they spray at the same time or in sequence can also be adjusted.


What’s a spa experience without your favorite music playing in the background? Are you the kind person who always needs to be connected? You can hook up your smart phone, too. Bluetooth technology allows you to listen to your iPod playlist or the radio, talk on the phone or watch videos.


Aromatherapy has long been associated with well-being. Have an aromatherapy dispenser installed in your steam shower unit, and experiment until you find your favorite scent of essential oils.


Chromatherapy lights cover the entire spectrum of light. Each color is associated with a particular emotional state. The colored lights have been found to improve mood and add to the overall ambiance of the steam shower experience.
