ABOUT A STEAM SHOWER INSTALLATION
SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND -
With all of the stress that each and every one of us faces nowadays coming home to a relaxing session of steam and bliss is a very good source of stress relief. More and more people in the Boulder County region are making it a point to budget for a steam shower installation.
WHAT STEAM UNIT SHOULD I PURCHASE? - When selecting your steam unit do the research. Some who have invested their money for a bathroom renovation have made the mistake of purchasing a lower-end steam unit only to not be able to use the steam shower until the unit can be fixed. 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 pane. No heat out and no cold in.
IS INSULATION OF THE STEAM SHOWER NECESSARY? - Yes, especially when the walls or ceiling is an exterior wall. Insulation ensures that the heat remains in the shower and doesn't escape outside and guards against a cold chill coming in.
WHAT ABOUT A SMALL SHOWER, CAN A BENCH BE BUILT? - That's a tough one. After all, you need to sit down to relax while in the steamer. One option is to build a corner seat in the shower. Or buying a folding seat to save space.
Among the perks of installing a steam shower in your home include the use of a raised shower bench and handheld shower spray, as well as the integration of a recessed shampoo niche.

Installing a custom steam shower follows the removal of the existing walls and tile from the shower floor to ceiling. This process takes the walls and floor down to the studs and sub-floor.
If you want, you can install the steam shower units in the adjacent closet or you can build a bench, so the unit can be kept in the shower itself.
The steam shower in this picture has a tile backer board is a cement board that is installed as the foundation of the steam shower
The Schluter Kerdi waterproof membrane is applied over the entire surface area of the steam shower so as to provide adequate protection for the shower.
A thinset slurry is applied prior to the application of the cement pour to the underlayment and the Schluter shower drain so that it will cure together before the tile installation
The cement poured pans should be troweled with dry pack mud for greater control and to ensure proper drainage to the shower drain at a ratio of 1/4" per/ft to the shower drain.
It is mandatory for us to test Schluter shower pans before tiles are installed directly to the shower floor, so we fill them with water and test them to make sure they are free from leaks before tiling the shower.
After Schluter/Kerdi membrane is installed to the shower pan, the next step is to install tile and grout to the Schluter/Kerdi directly
During the tile installation procedure, the tile installer usually starts working on the walls and ceilings first so that the shower pan can be tiled last to allow for the cement to properly cure.
Part of this steam shower is a custom seat that houses the steam generator and has a recessed niche that accommodates soap and shampoo bottles.

TILE INSTALLATION for STEAM ROOMS & STEAM SHOWERS
Installing tiles for a steam room or steam shower can be done using any type of tile but there are generally differences in the heat efficiency, which are determined by the kind of tile you choose, as well as the kind of steam generator that will be installed for your bathroom shower installation.
A quality porcelain tile will retain the heat the most efficiently of any tile. Glass or ceramic tiles offer a good next choice in terms of retaining heat during use. Also, natural stone tile can also be installed, but this entails more maintenance once it is installed and requires to be sealed every two years, depending upon the frequency with which the steam unit is used. Although you can select a porous tile for a large steam room or steam shower, it may be better to use a non-porous tile as mentioned previously.
The steam shower featured is a 13x24 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 in a negative way.
