Steam showers may not be a need for everyone, but for some itâ€™s considered an essential. Imagine having a rough, long day at the office and all you want is to come home and de-stress. Your legs are sore from standing all day, or from wearing heels, and anything to take the pain away will make your day. So you decide to take a shower, plop down on your shower bench and push a button. This button emits a lavender-scented steam (you can choose your own scent). Pretty soon you are no longer stressed; you are calm and relaxed, and you didnâ€™t have to go to a spa. When youâ€™re done steaming, you can shower for a refreshing rinse.
How It Works: Steam Shower
We came across an article from This Old House, that explains how exactly a steam shower works.
â€œA steam shower is triggered by digital controls in the shower stall. That triggers an electric valve to fill the steam generator with about a gallon of cold water. Then, the generatorâ€™s electric element brings the water to a boil. A pipe channels the hot vapor to the steam head, or disperser, which fills the stall with tropical moisture that never gets above a safe 118 degrees Fahrenheit.â€
This is a luxurious option for those that wish for that spa oasis feel. Steaming has added benefits to your skin and sinuses, not just on your overall stress levels. We believe thereâ€™s more to a shower than just bathing; itâ€™s about being in a soothing relaxing environment. If you need that fixture thatâ€™s going to go above and beyond not only in design but also in personal preference, opt for a steam shower. Weâ€™d highly recommend a professional when installing one of these steam units. Also, your bathroom has to be â€œsteam proofedâ€ before installing a unit. Would you install a steam shower?
