Although mobile homes were once pretty basic and luxury wasn’t exactly an important element to be considered, this is no longer the case, and with the advent of options in steam shower sizes, this is one fixture that mobile home owners are taking an interested look at. Besides, if you’re using your mobile home for traveling who wouldn’t want to wash off from the beach and days out exploring in the luxury of their own home.
The benefits for health
If you haven’t done much investigation into steam showers, you may not be fully aware of the great benefits to not only the resale of your home, but also for your own mind and body. A steam shower has shown to be a great place in which a homeowner can relax, and shake off the anxieties and stress of the day. Steam helps to open pores (releasing the toxins, dirt and debris that we unknowingly collect through our environments) and moisturize skin. It can also increase circulation, increasing skin elasticity, and reducing the signs of wrinkles and fine lines. Often applying heat to joints can reduce aches and pains, and a steam shower can do the same, allowing for pain relief and increasing ease of movement. If you’re feeling congested, stepping into your steam shower can mean instant relief and decongestion without the use of medication. Even better, certain models include vessels into which you can pour essential oils for aromatherapy use.
The benefits for home
We’ve gone over a few of the many benefits for your health, but what can a steam shower do to improve your home? As it turns out, plenty.
Although you may think of a steam shower as a luxury for a bigger home with plenty of bathroom space to spare, steam showers come in a wide range of styles and sizes to accommodate most homes and their room allowances. They’re not hard to install, and with so many options on the market, many homeowners have found that perfect model to fit not only their bathroom size and budget, but also their sense of style. With quadrant trays as small as 800 x 800 and in variations like 800 x 1000, you’re sure to find the perfect corner for your spa like experience that the whole family can enjoy. With more and more homes incorporating luxury items, a steam shower can make your home a competitive contender when it comes time to sell.
Before buying, consult with a trusted professional plumber to find out exactly what other renovations (if any) your bathroom might need before installation. You may need to think about extra insulation or freeze protection depending on the set up. Once you’ve determined what space you’ll be tucking your steam shower into, head out and discover all of the options on the market. Whether you’re looking for a combination steam shower, a corner unit or a walk in style, there will be many different types to choose from. Take your time, and talk to your local supplier to gain an insight into all of the variations available. Think about the elements in your bathroom and make choices that mean your steam shower blends well with and compliments the rest of the space.
Some steam showers can accommodate seating, and there are a variety of ways that you can have your shower head installed. Double shower heads are a popular choice, for either a shower for two, or to enjoy spray from two angles at once. Some will incorporate built in shelves for all of your body and hair products, and, as mentioned above, some even allow for essential oils so that your steam shower becomes a wonderful space for an aromatherapy session. Your shower can come in a square, rectangular, or even curved shape.
Most steam showers will look wonderful with transparent glass doors, but if that’s not your style, there are other options to choose from. Doors can have frosted panels or even partially frosted panels for privacy, and you can include frames or choose a more seamless style. Door handles can match other fixtures in the bathroom, whatever finish you like most. Consider a touch panel with the options that you will use most in order not to under or over buy.
If you’re looking for a bit of luxury in your bathroom, a steam shower will not only add value to your home, but also give you a mini vacation each and every time you step through the glass doors.
