Steam Showers and Remodeling

So how to choose the best steam shower for your remodeling project?

It boils down to a steam shower generator as part of a new or refurbished shower, on one hand. On the other hand is the prefabricated steam shower unit.

However, your first decision is whether to install a steam shower or a sauna.

Steam Shower and Sauna Therapy

We have included elsewhere saunas and steam showers as an extension of our bathroom component collections.  However, while a sauna may or may not be installed as part of a bathroom remodel project, a steam shower can also double as a regular shower.

We have included electrically heated and Infrared saunas, and steam showers in the context of Universal Design and aging in place for their very great beneficial effects.

How to choose between a sauna and a steam shower? It is totally a matter of personal preference and in our experience comes down to how and in what ambiance the individual wants the therapeutic heat delivered. Although we must say that a steam shower lacks the ambiance of a sauna room.
