Do you love the sauna but hate the expense of a spa or gym membership? Do you ever wish you had a luxurious way to relax at home after a long day or warm up on a cold winter’s evening right in your own home? Look no further — what you need is a steam shower.
What is a Steam Shower?
Essentially, it’s just what it sounds like! It’s a moisture-sealed shower with a mechanism that creates and distributes steam, always keeping it at a safe 118 degrees (Fahrenheit). It creates a relaxing, tropical experience that provides relaxation without using a ton of water (approximately 2 gallons for every 20 minutes, compared to 50 gallons for an eco-friendly shower head).
How Does a Steam Shower Work?
We install digital controls that allow you to start a small steam generator — think about the size as a loaf of bread. It takes cold water (again, saving energy), and the generator’s electric element boils the water. The steam from the boiling water then channels through a pipe to the steam head, where it exits and fills your shower with luxurious, relaxing steam.
Are Steam Showers Expensive?
Steam Showers are a great add-on when you’re already considering redoing your bathroom. Redoing your shower stall is one of the cheaper major renovations you can take on. The costs will vary depending on whether you use a standalone, pre-designed, steam-ready enclosure or choose a custom shower designed specifically for your space and preferred aesthetics (the sky is the limit on luxury add-ons), but there are plenty of affordable options (some as low as $2000).
