Title: STEAM SHOWER FROM AN EXISTING SHOWER
Post by: Brooke on February 11, 2009, 09:07:11 AM
I am wondering if a steam shower can be built from my " existing" shower. Currently, I have a two person corner shower with two shower heads. The dimension from one wall to the glass shower wall is about 58 inches. The "back" wall is 63 inches. My shower definitely needs to be re-done, the door handle doesn't work and the shower head has absolutely no water pressure. I have spoken to several re-modelers and they have provided me with various opinions; some of which are (1 ) to gut the entire bathroom and move counters, (2) to try to fit a prefab unit into the space.

I am at a total loss at this point. I have heard that prefab units are not the best!  Is this true? I want steam, but I want to do it right the first time, if this is even a possibility!

Any suggestions?

A steam shower can be created in any waterproof environment that is fully enclosed, regardless of size.  You should remodel the shower environment according to your preferences and needs, and then select a steam generator sized for that application.

The whole point of steam bathing is to relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy so building the shower "your way" is very important.  You can read specific details on steam shower design using the helpful tool found here
