TILE INSTALLATION for STEAM ROOMS & STEAM SHOWERS
For your new bathroom shower project, any tile will work well for the tile installation that involves a steam generator, however, the heat efficiency of the steam generator and the maintenance of the shower surfaces will differ depending on the tile.
Quality porcelain tile and ceramic tiles retain the largest amount of heat, followed by high-quality glass tiles.
A natural stone tile can also be used, but it will require a greater amount of maintenance. Sealing the stone might be necessary every year or two depending on how frequently it is being used and mold can become a problem with natural stone. Ventilation is key in this case.
It will be better, however, to pick a non-porous tile for a large steam room or steam shower with minimum use of stone tile as an accent.
The steam shower featured is a 12x24 porcelain wall tile that is set horizontally with the grout lines matching in straight lines. Natural stones were placed across the shower ceiling and floor. Because the steam shower is of a smaller size, the use of stone tiles does not affect its efficiency whereas if the shower were larger and more stone tiles were installed, the tiles might adversely affect the steam generator's efficiency.
