WILL A WINDOW WORK IN A STEAM SHOWER? - Yes, it is possible. Neither the heat nor the cold will penetrate through your window if you have double-pane windows. This is a feature of all newer homes.
IS INSULATION OF THE STEAM SHOWER NECESSARY? - Yes, Insulation prevents heat loss in the shower, especially when the ceiling or walls are exterior walls. Insulating the shower ensures that the heat remains inside the shower and prevents cold air from entering.
WHAT ABOUT A SMALL SHOWER, CAN A BENCH BE BUILT? - The steamer does need to be sat in, after all, so you need a seat to relax while in it. We can build a corner seat in the bath but in a tight space that can be a bit uncomfortable. We can also install a teak wood bench that folds up the wall and finally just placing a chair in the shower when using the steam will work.

STEAM SHOWER INSTALLERS

TILE INSTALLATION for STEAM ROOMS & STEAM SHOWERS
Any kind of tile will work for a steam room installation or steam shower installation but there is a difference between each type of tile with respect to the heat efficiency of the steam generator.
Ceramic tile, porcelain tile, and glass tile are the most efficient for your tile installation and do best in retaining the heat that has been generated. It is also possible to install natural stone but it requires more maintenance with sealing the stone every year or two depending on how frequently the steam unit is used. For a large steam room or steam shower, it may be better to use a nonporous tile.
The steam shower featured is a 13x24 porcelain wall tile that is set horizontally with the grout lines matching in straight lines. This steam shower is tiled with natural stone tiles on the ceiling and floor. Because the steam shower is small, the limited use of stone tiles is not detrimental to the steam generator's efficiency, as a larger shower or larger amount of stone tile used for the installation could be.
