Steam Shower Installation – Why Choose to install a Steam Shower?
Steam showers are great for many reasons. We all know that they are very relaxing but they also come with great health benefits. Steam showers have a positive effect on blood pressure as exposure to steam widens the blood vessels so that blood flow increases and improves circulation.
The heat also relaxes muscles and reduces tension and gives relief to stiff joints. Exposure to heat and steam releases stress and has a fatiguing effect that can improve sleep when used before bed.
Just a steam shower or a the shower/tub combo?
When ordering a steam shower you need to decide if you need a dual tub and a steam shower or just a steam shower alone. The shower/tub combo is more expensive but it’s important to note the benefits that come with the price tag. Tubs include built-in seats, foot massage and whirlpool massage jets. If you’re looking to create a luxurious bathroom environment the shower/tub combo might be the right way to go.
Installing a Steam Shower
The installation process is not too different from installing a regular shower, also a steam shower doesn’t need to take much more space than a regular shower. The total price of a steam shower installation depends on what shower you choose to install as units start at £800 and go upwards.
