Good Question MyMyBOOty
Yes, the Chroma light is only Chroma colors, no white light.
The more light in a steam shower the better so yes, we would recommend a white light in addition to a chroma light.
In addition to the MSChroma light, Mr Steam offers and MSLight MS Light
The MSChroma light can be controlled from their eTempo/Plus steam control.
The MS Light needs a separate light switch on the exterior of the shower.
Other white light options are available as wellSteam Shower Lighting
Lighting is an important part of a steam bathing environment and should always be considered when constructing a steam shower. Besides the obvious safety consideration, lighting allows for maximum control of steam shower visual ambiance. When on, light will reflect on the steam or airborne vapor particles creating a visually unique and pleasing rolling mist.
