If you’ve decided it’s time to upgrade your bathroom and have been harbouring a desire to include a steam shower in the remodel – then here is a super quick and simple guide to making sure you end up with the best steam shower for your bathroom.
A quick glance online and you’ll probably realize that the range of choice when it comes to selecting a Steam Shower nowadays is mindboggling!
So here are 3 simple steps to making a smart and practical choice:
1. Measure and plan
There’s no point in lusting after the latest luxury steam shower unless you’re sure it can actually be installed in the space available in your own bathroom. Start by taking essential measurements; width, length, etc. and considering if you want to maintain the existing layout (more or less) or are prepared to finance major rerouting of water and drainage systems to accommodate any new installation.
Map out a simple floor plan where everything will be located and make sure to consider issues such as in which direction the door of the enclosure will open. Some units come with left or right-opening doors or sliding doors (which eliminates any door swing space, and are ideal for smaller bathrooms).
2. Filter options
Shopping online has never been so easy. Once you’ve established the maximum size of space you have to play with, simply go online and filter steam shower units by size first. This will narrow down the options considerably. Then explore the exact dimensions and features of several options which interest you.
Read through the small print regarding installation and any other requirements to make sure that each one would be practical to install and operate. This will probably further refine the possibilities.
3. Budget basics
If you have an open-ended budget, you’ll simply be able to choose the steam shower you want with the features you desire, and there are loads of excellent features to choose from. If your bathroom remodel budget is part of bigger plans and the budget is less generous – decide which shower features are essential, which are desirable, and which you can live without. This should still leave you with a good few options to select from.
Again, once you’ve made your final decision – ensure that all instructions for installation can be accommodated in your bathroom and try to have any necessary modifications carried out before the unit is delivered to your home. This will avoid any unnecessary delay when it comes to actually installing the unit.
Once installed, you’ll be able to enjoy your very own steam sessions in the comfort of your own home whenever you feel like it.
