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? - While inside the steamer, it would be good for you to be able to sit down and relax. The shower can be enhanced with a built-in corner seat. Another option is to buy a folding bench that can be mounted on the wall to save space. Or just purchase a chair to be placed in the steam shower when in use.

Installing a custom steam shower means taking the bathroom's walls down to the sub-floor and removing the tile from the shower's base.
Steam shower units can be installed in adjacent closets to the shower or built into the shower using the bench.
In this case, the shower is covered with a tile backer board which is a cement board.
The steam shower is covered with a watertight Schluter Kerdi membrane to ensure maximum protection.
A thinset slurry is applied to the Durrock prior to applying the cement pour, which bonds the cement into place.
To ensure proper drainage from the shower drain, the cement-poured pans should be troweled with a thick layer of dry pack mud, at a rate of 1/4" per ft.
Before the shower floor tiles are installed directly to the Schluter shower pan, they are filled with water and tested for leaks
It is now time to install the tile directly to Schluter/Kerdi shower membrane.
The tile installer typically begins with the walls and ceiling of the shower before tiling the shower pan last to allow the cement to cure properly.
An important feature of the steam shower is the large custom bench, which houses the steam system and has a recessed niche for storing soap and shampoo bottles.
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.
