View All products in Steam Shower »
Ordinary showers are being replaced by Steam Showers because of the reported health benefits. A constant stream of consumers are flocking to home improvement stores or surfing the Internet to find the perfect steam shower. There are many factors to consider such as the size, the materials used in the construction and the additional electronic features. Now, it's not the old days of stoking the train boiler to get more speed... these days steam is all about health. From the aesthetic point of view, the one factor to consider is the type of steam shower enclosure you'll need.
Similar to a sauna, the types of steam shower enclosure depend only on two aspects, the shape and the size. There are four popular shapes of steam shower enclosures. These are the square, the rectangular, the semi-oval, and the half circle. The size can depend on the size of the family or the number of people who will be using the steam shower at one time. The choice of shape, on the other hand, will be influenced by the location of the steam shower and the personal preferences of the buyer.
The square steam shower enclosure has all sides of the same width. Its greatest advantage is that it saves a lot of space and it can be easily fitted into a wall or a corner. For this type of shower enclosure, the recommended material for the door is glass. The glass allows a steamy view of the outside and creates an illusion of space. Of course, glass doors and glass walls are also good for other types of enclosures.
The rectangular steam shower enclosure is appropriate for a combination of shower and bath. Some people like to always have a choice, whether to bathe or to shower. A rectangular shape is also good for bigger shower only enclosure because it can accommodate two people at a time. The semi-oval steam shower enclosure, which is also called quadrant enclosure, has two ends that are similar to that of square enclosures. The middle part has one side straight and the other side curved. The straight side is placed against the wall while the curved side is the one that faces the rest of the room. The major advantage of this type of steam shower enclosure is that it can maximize space.
The half-circle steam shower enclosure, which is also called the D-shape enclosure, has one side that is straight and the other side creates one curved enclosure. The straight side, of course, is the one that is set against the wall and the curved side faces the room. Many customers prefer the half-circle-enclosure as it is stylish and modern. But due to the way it needs a lot of space, it is rarely the choice of many consumers.
