Choosing The Ideal Steam Shower Cabin

Steam shower cabins precisely like the bathrooms that they will be situated in arrive in countless varied sizes, shapes and layouts. Stemming from customer demand and the companies desire to become the leader in the field, its now difficult not to track down a steam shower that will not completely compliment your bathroom layout.

Though this is truly great and it's alway the most preferred to enjoy a wider range of goods and shapes at our disposal to choose from it is a good idea to recognize the fundamental principles of fitting a steam shower before diving in and purchasing.

The first and foremost golden rule is this:

""Allow the size of the shower plus the size of a body"

Crash here and the job is now over!! The easiest mistake to make is to look at a space and think, well I want a snug fit for my shower

This will certainly not work!!!

This cannot and will not happen For any and all steam shower cabin installations the installer will need to physically get behind the unit to make all the connections and put the panels together. In almost all case the shower unit is built full to completion then and only then is it pushed back into that gap and its final resting position. If you don't have this addition room it will be impossible to install your shower. For Assistance CONTACT US.

Another important rule is the height above the unit:

A steam shower will be giving off a lot of steam. It is important to either think of the height above the unit or to think of the material of that roof above, Imagine if your immediate ceiling was painted with emulsion which the steam would just eat leaving to drip on your shower or worse still untreated wood?? Many of the popular steam shower cabins come with a extractor fan but will you be ducting this straight outside??  The next best thing would be to have an additional running extractor in the bathroom in use while using the shower, but not everyone will have this luxury. So in this scenario it because a judgment call, the elements versus the environment and the the materials in the bathroom effected such as furniture.

Then the rule thats so obvious its easy to miss

Mini me Vs Supersize Me

Sounds crazy but you be suprised how many steam showers are returned or swopped due to this, sounds easy Simply rip out the old, forget paying for tiles, a tiler and decoration, simply install a free standing steam shower in its place, simple. Well yeah, but be carefully here not to completely over do it by installing a monster of a unit in the middle of a tightly spaced ensuite and additionally be careful to fully study all sizes and drawings of units when buying. Because a units is advertised as a corner unit 900 x 900 this may not mean that its 900 across the back against the wall. The unit might be curved fronted so it could mean its 900mm to the most pertuding part of that curve and less across the wall. View our FACEBOOK.

RULE: Think twice, do it once

Don't be the product, buy the product!
