While the look and style are always a major concern, there is much more that needs to be considered when designing a steam shower. The tile, grout, and adhesive must be able to withstand more moisture and higher temperatures than a typical shower. A bench seat should be positioned for comfort and safety. The steam head should not be directly facing where a person’s legs would be placed. The glass shower door should go to the ceiling to maximize the effects and efficiency of the steam unit, but then must have an easy access vent hatch built in.
This steam shower pictured features a frameless shower door with starfire glass, green onyx tile, and French gold fixtures. The bathroom remodeling project, located in Monmouth County, New Jersey, was completed by Mark of Excellence Design Build Remodel.
Picking tile is an important part of this process. The Design Build Planners recommend that New Jersey homeowners visit the Best Tile showroom in Keyport. Ask for Nanci McCarthy, the branch manager, and tell her Jason and Neil referred you for an extra discount
