And the same wide selection of shower sizes to fit your bathroom. In a nutshell, steam showers just have more functions thanks to today's steam shower technology. Let's take a look.
Most homeowners have shower stalls verses steam showers in their bathroom. Shower stalls typically have four parts including the floor tray, shower door, side panel(s), and titled or acrylic wall. While shower stalls are found in most homes, they are quickly being replaced with fully enclosed steam showers. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) reports steam showers are one of the most popular bathroom remodeling features purchased.

And because shower stalls are open on top, your whole bathroom is exposed to mold and bacteria. Have you ever had mold spots on your ceiling?
A steam shower on the other hand is fully enclosed. Steam showers keep your bathroom walls, ceiling, and floors free of buildup found with regular shower stall usage. Another advantage of steam showers is the ozone sterilization system. The steam shower's ozone sterilization system is a self cleaning steam shower function killing bacteria, mold, and viruses. This allows you to have a clean steam shower experience every time.
