Have you ever wanted to have all of the luxuries of a steam room in your home? If so, you’re in luck! With a few simple pieces of technology and some mechanical and plumbing skills, you can make a steam room in your current shower! Below are some tips to get you started.

Get the Right Shower Head

One of the most important items you need to make a steam room in your shower is the proper shower head. If you want to have the best shower head for this purpose, then you should invest in a smart shower head. With one of these, you can talk to your shower head or otherwise configure it to have the perfect level of water pressure, the right temperature, and a hydrating level of steam.

Install Exterior Controls

To avoid getting the wrong things wet when you build your own steam room, you will need to have some of the controls on the outside of the shower. This will keep the computer portion of the smart shower from getting ruined or glitching out. By doing this, you are also able to set up all of your desired features before you step into the shower, so you will not need to stand around waiting for everything to adjust.

Have a Shower Door

If you don’t want the steam to escape from your shower, a shower curtain isn’t going to cut it. If you do not have a door on your shower, then it’s high time that you install one! One of the best types of doors for steam room showers is one made of tempered glass. These shower doors make it so enough light can get in that you will be able to see well, but not so much light that if someone walks into the bathroom while you’re in it that they will be able to see you clearly. If you are still nervous that someone might see you, then you can always put a shower curtain on the inside of the shower as well. Also, if you do not know how to put in a shower door, you can find some easy tutorials and guides on how to do so online.

By doing these three things, you will be well on your way to making a steam room in your shower. So, what are you waiting for? Create a spa experience in your home now!
