TILE INSTALLATION for STEAM ROOMS & STEAM SHOWERS
Any kind of tile will work for a steam room or steam shower tile installation however, there are still variations in each of these tiles when it comes to the heat efficiency of the steam generator that will be installed in your bathroom shower installation project.
Ceramic and glass tiles are followed by porcelain tiles as the most efficient tiles that are non-porous and do a good job of retaining the heat that is generated. Installing natural stone requires more care, such as sealing it every year or two, depending on how often the steam unit is used. However, it may be wiser to select a non-porous tile for larger steam rooms or steam showers.
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.
