1. Is buying a steam shower the right move for you?

Before you make the decision, you need to explore all of the options. Keep in mind that installing a steam shower isn’t just about ordering one on Amazon and installing it yourself. You need to have a professional install your unit and there might be additional costs to upgrade your bathroom to be able to handle all the steam it will endure, which a normal bathroom would quickly deteriorate if not treated correctly.

2. Prefab or Custom?

You must decide if a prefab unit like the Insignia Steam Shower or a custom steam shower is the right choice for you. Measurements in your bathroom must be taken and you have to look at your budget if there are certain features you want that might not be available in premade units. There is a wide range of options in the prefab market from super budget to super luxury with every bell and whistle you can imagine. But, if a certain look is what you’re after or you have an awkward space, a custom steam shower might be the way to go.

3. How to find the right company to install a steam shower?

Installing a steam shower isn’t an easy task and a normal plumber might not be able to handle it. You’ll want to do your research and ask for references from different steam shower installing companies. If you go custom or prefab, there is still a lot of electronics involved and with the amount of moisture that is created by a steam shower, you’ll want to make sure things are property insulated, covered, etc. A good idea is to speak with an interior designer who might have a good relationship with a quality bathroom remodeler.

Well, there you have it! Just a few things to consider when buying a steam shower, but regardless of which way you go, if you decided to install one, you’ll surely be living the good life, so just do your research and enjoy!
