STEAM SHOWER-LAKEWOOD, Co Part 1
This Lakewood, Co steam shower by Action Shower Pan & Steam Shower Company is a work still in progress. Allot goes into building these steam showers and it is always helpful when the homeowners have a clear vision of what they wanted to accomplish.
This is how the shower looked before construction. The Homeowner knew that the bathroom footprint was pretty limited, but just enough space could be expanded on by eliminating the shelves adjacent to the shower.
One of the things that we talked about and the questioned asked was "Will there be room enough for a built-in bench"? Yes! However, another question arose as we conversed about the bench. Will there be room for a door to swing open with the toilet so close to the shower. That was the question.
The built-in shower bench needed to be large enough to house the steam generator also had to have enough room on top to sit comfortably and also had to be deep enough to allow the shower door to open. The minimum depth is 15" for comfort. After all, the new steam shower will be a place to relax and unwind.
Shower pan is tiled with porcelain sheet mounted tile purchased at Floor & Decor. Stay tuned for Part 2 as we look to finish the tile installation and grouting. Shower doors will next be measured and custom made from a professional glass company and we will let you know hopefully in part 2. In most cases, there is a 2-week turnaround from the time the shower doors are measured, but with this crazy year, 3 weeks has become the norm in some cases.
