TILE INSTALLATION for STEAM ROOMS & STEAM SHOWERS
There are various kinds of tiles that can be used for a steam room or steam shower & tile installation there is a difference in each of the tiles relative to the heat efficiency of the steam generator that will be installed for your bathroom shower installation project.
Tiles made from porcelain, followed by glass and ceramic tiles are the best heat retaining materials. Natural stone can also be applied but requires more maintenance with sealing the stone after the installation. 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 13x24 porcelain wall tile that is set horizontally with the grout lines matching in straight lines. Despite the steam shower's small size, using stone tiles on its ceiling and floor in smaller quantities does not reduce the steam generator's efficiency, while a larger unit would probably be adversely affected.
