Hi. I am remodeling an existing shower and adding a Mr. Steam unit.  I need lighting.

The shower is 36 inches x 40 inches, so it's a small one.  But big enough for one person to take a steam, seated on a little teak stool, I think. There is a window adjacent to the shower, so the shower does not "need" lighting during daylight hours. A t night, the bathroom has lighting at the sink, which is across from the steamshower, so some of that light will spill into the shower.  You don't "need" a light in the shower to shower at night, right now, though I realize you may want/need light when the steam shower is full of steam.

I like the Bathology lights, but because the shower is so small it seems that the Spectrum 510 system is overkill.  Do I need to buy this system to have even just two Spectrum lights?

I believe two fixtures would suffice for this shower, but I am concerned that the LED light, when on "white" would not be an aesthetically pleasing light.  Consequently we are wondering if we could do one halogen light and one LED color-shifting light.

I am interested in one Brilliance 410 LED RGB color ceiling light, and the hardware needed to operate it.
Also, can we use a Spectrum 310 with a 410?
If that is not possible, then my inclination is a system with two LEDs that shift color, and no halogen/true white.

I'm also somewhat unhappy at having multiple panels/switches in my shower:  one for the lighting and one for the steam unit operation.  Perhaps I should have bought a bigger control panel from Mr.Steam (to also handle the lighting), though that wasn't what I wanted to do at the time (and I am not recalling if that is even available from Mr. Steam).

I need to resolve this ASAP as we have already demo'd the shower and it won't be long before construction really starts and the pieces are needed.

I appreciate anyone's thoughts.
