Title: What type of materials would be best for a bench in the steam room?
Post by: Payton on September 08, 2009, 07:09:28 AM
Since my room is rather small...  would I be better off with a fold down seat or a small bench?  my concern is that since the area is tiny to begin with will the bench take up too much floor space?

Without knowing the size of your steam shower area, it is difficult to say.  Typically, in small enclosures, a folding seat (http://steamsaunabath.com/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?manufacturers_id=&keywords=fold) is preferable so that it can be folded out of the way when not in use.  However, nothing beats having a bench where you can lie down!

Call a Steam Bath Specialist (http://www.steamsaunabath.com/catalog/project_coordinator.php) to help determine which option is best for you.

If I were to put a bench in, what material would be best suited for this application?

You can use the same materials for the bench that you use on the walls.  Ideally your bench top will be a sold surface since it's not very comfortable to sit on grout lines.  Or use larger tiles.
Side note:  Floor tiles work best with more grout lines, like 2"x2" to allow for better traction.
