What Features should You Look for in a Steam Shower Enclosure? – What You should Know
Once you’ve decided to get that steam shower for your home, you’re on your way to a higher quality of life – not only does a steam shower help you relax and rejuvenate, the numerous health benefits are sure to leave you feeling refreshed and in top shape as well. However, there are so many choices on the market that it may be hard and confusing for the first-time buyer to make sense of it all. There are, after all, so many options out there. Here, then, are some of the things you should know regarding the features to look for in a steam shower enclosure:
Aromatherapy and chromatherapy
Aromatherapy is just one of the nice features that come with a steam shower; allow that scent to fill the enclosure and soothe your troubles away. As aromatherapy is associated with the sense of smell, chromatherapy is associated with light – and both are aimed at making that steam session so much more pleasurable.
Radio and music
Listening to relaxing music can enhance the steam shower experience a thousand-fold, whether you’re listening to soothing ocean rhythms or exotic pan flute melodies, you have the ability to relax your mind and focus your attention on the good things in life. Often, there are radio, MP3, or Bluetooth options included in the latest shower cabins.
This feature allows you to start the steam production in a matter of minutes. Although this may consume more electricity than usual (as the water must be heated quickly to the point of turning into steam) it’s a great feature to have when you have some time limitations.
Yes, even your steam shower may have a remote control – this way you can allow the steam shower to begin heating whilst you focus on other tasks around you. It also allows you to regulate and pre-set or pre-determine the exact temperature you want, to soothe away your troubles.
You don’t need to focus on the steam shower alone; there are combinations out there that provide the luxury of a shower with back jet options, steam shower and whirlpool baths, all in one. Basically, you can have that all-in-one shower and bath cabin for that extra pleasure.
As you can see, there are many options out there – and these are just the beginning. Finding the right steam shower enclosure will not only depend on your wants and needs, but also on the amount of space you have available and, of course, the budget you are willing to set aside. A steam shower or shower cabin, however, is a great investment and it pays to consider the various designs.
