There are numerous health benefits to steam showers, from relieving minor bodily aches and pains to clearing the sinus. These are just some of the reasons why a lot of people are now upgrading their regular bathroom into a sauna or steam shower room. If you’re considering installing a steam shower in your Master bathroom, purchasing a pre-built kit is a more cost-efficient option compared to building from scratch, mainly because you will have to hire the services of several laborers or sub-contractors to complete the project.
Building a steam room from the ground up requires professional services for tiling, constructing the steam-proof enclosure, plumbing, and electrical wiring. The professional fees alone for the hired sub-contractors can put a dent in your budget. You will also need to purchase the materials separately and oversee the entire project. All in all, you have to allot a large amount of time than you can afford to spare just to ensure that the project runs on schedule.
With pre-built steam shower kits, you only need to concern yourself with the plumbing and wiring phases of the project. And if you have experience working with pipes and electrical connections, or if you are up for the challenge, you can even take care of both tasks yourself.
Pre-built kits for a sauna or steam shower usually include the following:
- Pre-fitted wall and ceiling panels
- Pre-hung door
- Ceramic emitters
- Heater guard
- Pre-made benches
- Louvered Vents
Additionally, pre-built kits for saunas and steam showers can be customized so you can still get the sauna or steam shower you want according to your specifications. You can also discuss installation procedures with the manufacturer so you can do away with hiring a professional for the job and save a considerable amount of cash on labor fees.
