The shower surface can be tiled with any type of tile. Our first choice in tile installation is porcelain tile because of its durable low maintenance qualities and porcelain tile's heat efficiency. Ceramic tile is also highly valued in steam shower installations as is glass tiles. Marble tile and other natural stone tile can also be installed by our steam shower installer
However, there is more maintenance involved with natural stone tile including tumbled travertine tiles that must be addressed during the waterproofing preparation and sealing of the stone once it is installed on a routine schedule. This will help in the prevention of mold growth that may happen if installation steps are omitted.

If it can be fixed. And finding the right people to service your unit is a subject in itself. Some Steam Generator Options to consider - THERMASOL - STEAMIST
WILL A WINDOW WORK IN A STEAM SHOWER? - Yes, it is possible. As long as your window is a double-pane window. Most newer homes do have double panes. No heat out and no cold in.

TILE INSTALLATION for STEAM ROOMS & STEAM SHOWERS
Any kind of tile will work for a steam room or steam shower tile installation however there is a difference in each of these tiles with regard to the heat efficiency of the steam generator that will be installed for your bathroom shower installation project.
The most efficient tile that is non-porous and does the best job at retaining the heat that is generated is a quality porcelain tile followed again by a quality ceramic and glass tile. Natural stone also can be installed but will require more maintenance with sealing the stone every year or two depending on how frequently the steam unit is used. However, for a large steam room or steam shower, it may be wiser to select a non-porous tile as mentioned.
The steam shower featured is a 12x24 porcelain wall tile that is set horizontally with the grout lines matching in straight lines. The ceiling and shower floor are tiled with natural stone tiles. Because the steam shower is smaller than most showers the minimum use of stone tiles mainly on the ceiling does not affect the efficiency of the steam generator whereas a larger unit could be affected negatively.

Our 40 years of tile installation and bathroom remodeling experience is applied to all of the projects that we contract with for a safe, secure and beautiful steam room & shower installation.
