Open any home decorating magazine and youâ€™re likely to see a bathroom so beautiful youâ€™ll wish you were a towel. Youâ€™d be able to hang out there all day.
Thatâ€™s how I feel about my bathroom. Part of the master bedroom suite, it features custom cabinetry, monorail lighting, custom-cast concrete counters, and a spectacular vessel sink made by a local potter. But my favorite amenity is the tiled steam shower, which includes a bench for relaxation, a glass block window to bring in natural light, and a clear glass door to make the space feel larger. Once it fills up with steam, I donâ€™t want to leave.
4 Prefabricated steam rooms take the guesswork out of constructing your own steam bath. Acrylic seats are molded into wall panels, which interlock with an acrylic ceiling to create a watertight room.
My bathroom even though it occupies a relatively small space required extensive planning. There were several months of just wishing and longing, followed by a couple more months of serious planning, and concluding with a few more months of actual construction. But it was all time well spent. Indeed, if you plan your steam shower installation with such close attention to details, youâ€™ll wish you were a towel, too.
