Custom Steam Showers
Your home should be your sanctuary, a place where you can relax and unwind at the end of a long day. And what better way to relax than with a custom-designed steam shower?
A steam shower looks much like a regular shower, but is fully enclosed from ceiling to floor and outfitted with a steam generator. Adding a steam shower to your home is relaxing and may even provide health benefits.
The Three Custom Steam Shower Types
There are three key types of steam showers: 1) shower conversions, 2) custom-built steam showers and 3) steam shower suites.
- Shower Conversion
In general, modern standard showers can be converted into a steam shower with the installation a custom glass door, a steam generator and the addition of waterproof enclosure materials. Retrofit conversions may not work for older showers.
- Custom-Built Steam Shower
Custom steam showers are typically built from the ground up, allowing you to have total control over the materials, hardware and design.
- Steam Shower Suite
A steam shower suite may include other custom and spa-like fixtures like a deep tub, towel warmer, custom vanity and more. The possibilities are almost endless.
Converting your current shower into a steam shower is typically the least expensive option. But if you value having total control over the design, choosing a custom-built steam shower might be your best option. If your whole bathroom could use a facelift, it’s a great time to consider an ambitious steam shower suite.
Design Your Custom Steam Shower
A steam shower is multi-purpose. It can be used as a regular shower, or with the steam generator turned on.
All steam showers must include a floor-to-ceiling shower enclosure and a steam generator – but beyond that, the possibilities are seemingly endless.
Homeowners may choose options including:
- Custom Walls
Wall options span from custom tile to all-in-one shower kits and even poured concrete. If the barrier is watertight from floor to ceiling, it’s an option for your custom steam shower.
- Custom Doors and Enclosures
Your steam shower may include a custom door or window outfitted with specialty glass types ranging from tinted to textured. Custom glass is an easy and affordable way to bring instant style to a steam shower.
- A Steam Generator
There are many steam generators available online and via your local bath and shower supplier. Whether you hire Glass Doctor® to build your custom steam shower or you build it yourself, weigh your options carefully. A bathroom or shower remodel is not an easy or quick job. Be sure to contract a reputable electrician, like our friends and fellow Neighborly® brand, Mr. Electric®, for safe generator installation.
- Custom Finishes
Steam showers are all about relaxation. To make your steam shower a home spa, consider adding a comfortable bench and think about options for sound (speakers), light (soft lighting to promote relaxation), multiple showerheads and even aromatherapy.
