How big would a room have to be for adding one upper bench in a steam room with a lower bench?

I am building a steam room in the basement next to a work out room. I use a steam room in a club now and want to know if I should put an upper bench in the steam room I am designing.

What is the benching sizes? Height & Width?

The most important factors when considering two-tier benching are ceiling height and room depth.  As long as you have enough height for sitting comfortably on the top bench and enough floor space to move around, two-tier benching allows for environment variations within one enclosure and is a wonderful enhancement to any steam shower.

Ideally, you would construct 24" deep benches at 18"-20" and 36" off the floor. Be sure to use a smooth surface material such as marble or granite and slope the benches a few degrees to keep water from pooling on the benches and for overall bathing comfort.

For more detailed information, read about comfortable seating.
