Comfortable Seating

(See Products)

Comfortable seating is always recommended in a steam shower.  For built-in seating, we strongly suggest a smooth, solid surface material for a bench top maximizing durability and for superior bathing comfort. Many bathers find sitting on grout lines to be uncomfortable. Don't forget to slope the bench top ever so gradually from wall towards the drain just enough for water to roll and not too much to create seating discomfort. Additionally, extend the slab top 1" - 2" over the seat riser creating a lip. Request the supplier of this material to round the edge/lip that will overhang the seat riser for extra comfort. A seat top designed in this fashion affords greater comfort, is structurally sound, is easier to more effectively slope, protects/shelters the vertical seat riser tiles, and maximizes bench top depth without compromising shower base/floor space.

See some Steam Shower Seats in our image gallery!

Generally, seat height ranges from 18" - 21" off the floor and 14" - 24" deep. When designing your built-in steam shower seat, we suggest you sit on several different household chairs first to get a reference point and then design your seat to your liking. If space allows, consider maximizing bench length and depth enabling steam bathing while lying on your back.

For larger steam showers with space sufficient for two-level (upper and lower) seating, SteamSaunaBath suggests the use of a slip resistant material for the lower level seat top.

If your steam shower does not allow for a built-in seat - no problem. Consider the use of wall mounted, fold down Teak or European Wood seat. If a non-permanent or removable seat is preferred, consider a portable steam shower seat adjustable for all sizes and capable of being stored when not in use. Both will afford the ability to relax while enjoying the greatest form of bathing available.

Do not forgo the addition of steam to your shower as a result of not having the space for a built-in seat. There is no such thing as a steam shower that is too small. It has been said far too often and we wholeheartedly agree - the greatest joys can come in small packages!
