Enjoy the warm clouds of relaxation
Every custom steam room is created to fit the area at your disposal, your design goals, and your budget. Since they function at 100% humidity with an average temperature of roughly 42°C, steam rooms are finished as a completely wet chamber in contrast to traditional Finnish saunas, which have a wooden interior.
Many kinds of steam bathing have been used for thousands of years. Depending on who you ask, steam rooms may also be referred to as Turkish Baths, Roman Baths, Hammams, or Russian Banyas. Steam rooms are a great alternative for individuals who don't like the hotter temperatures of a traditional Finnish sauna to relax, unwind, and relieve aches and pains.

Resources for classic tiled steam rooms and modular acrylic steam rooms are available at Steam Bath & Steam Room Installation. A glass steam room door and a steam generator or commercial-size steam boiler are typically all that is needed for tiled steam rooms. The more recent modular acrylic steam rooms share many of the same components as tiled rooms but typically require less upkeep. Acrylic steam rooms may be put together far more quickly and outlive tiled steam rooms, which need to be retiled or regrouted after only seven years.
List of some basic guidelines to consider for your steam room project
- The recommended distance for the steam generator to be located outside the steam chamber is 5 meters. Then, two nozzles inside the steam room are connected using an insulated copper steam line. Steam nozzles are typically positioned 250–300 mm off the ground.
- Depending on where the generator is located, you may also need drainage for the steam generator.
- Electric steam generators require a dedicated circuit and must be hard wired. Most home steam generators can be connected to either a single phase or three phase power source because they are multi-voltage devices.
- At 2100mm, the ceiling's typical height, things function best.
- Tiles and/or glass are used to complete the inner walls of a steam chamber. For all tiled finishes, epoxy grout and waterproofing must be applied.
- The ceiling of the steam room is always installed with powder-coated aluminum panels at Sauna HQ.
- The ideal benches are those that are suspended whenever possible since this allows the steam nozzles to be placed far from your feet.
- For the steam that is escaping from the steam room, an extraction fan should be installed, especially if the steam room has frameless glass doors.
Steam room benefits
Steam baths provide similar benefits to saunas but in a setting with higher humidity and cooler, more moderate temperatures.
Together with the feeling of wellbeing it offers, steam bathing has also been shown to be a highly effective treatment for conditions like gout, rheumatoid arthritis, bronchitis, and asthma. Furthermore, advised for a soft, smooth, healthy complexion is steam bathing.
Steam Room Design and Installation
Choose a location for your steam room. We advise staying no higher than 8' above the floor to avoid uncomfortable colder temperature changes near the ceiling. The recommended ceiling height is 7'. Install an air circulation system if the ceiling must be higher than 8'. Condensation won't drip on bathers if the ceiling slope is at least 3/4" per foot. A vapour-proof steam room door is required to completely surround the steam bath area and keep steam from escaping. A waterproof material, such as tile, must be used to seal all interior surfaces thoroughly. In a room, a floor drain ought to be in the middle. Before tiling the room, the rough opening size of the steam room door will need to be carefully framed in. Skylights and outdoor windows should not be used because of their inefficiency and because the steam will obstruct the view. Tip: Before tiling over walls, ceilings, and floors, contact your neighbourhood home improvement or construction supply store for the right vapour barrier to install. The ideal vapour barrier will be a huge sheet that can be used to cover the walls and ceiling in one piece (less seams is better).
Choose non-porous wall and ceiling surface materials that go well with your bathroom's design. The best surface materials for steam baths include ceramic tile, marble, granite, travertine, and porcelain tile. Choose a generator that is appropriate for the dimensions and special features of your steam shower to offer the most comfortable steam bathing experience possible. Tip: Request the correct backing materials and adhesives from your neighbourhood home improvement or building supply store to firmly install surface material (tile, marble, etc.) over vapour barrier. It might be preferable to employ a professional to install the surface material in your steam room if you have no experience tiling a room.
Choose a suitable location before installing the boiler or steam generator. Most manufacturers advise keeping the steam head no more than ten feet away. Utilities hookups include putting in a freshwater line and wiring a dedicated 240V electricity circuit (or 208V for most commercial). Typical places include a nearby closet, a cupboard, the attic or basement, under a bench in the steam shower, and so forth. The steam generator system MUST BE EASILY ACCESSIBLE FOR REGULAR MAINTENANCE AND MUST NOT BE EXPOSED TO FREEZING TEMPERATURES. For more information, consult the manufacturer's installation manual.
