Frequently asked questions
Can you have a custom steam room at home?
You’ll be happy to learn that most of the custom built steam rooms we install are not restricted to commercial premises and can be added to your home. It’s worth noting that you will need a fair bit of space, not just for the steam room itself but also for the steam generator. This is generally kept in a separate location for noise and maintenance purposes.
The type and size of your home steam room will be dependent on your space and your taste. For example, it’s probably not feasible to install a bespoke tiled steam room in a regular sized domestic bathroom.
How much does a bespoke steam room cost?
Costs for custom built steam rooms vary depending on design, style, size and interior additions such as seating and lighting. As a result we would say you need to budget anywhere from £9,000 to £30,000 for a domestic or commercial steam room. A room stat size would service from 2 to 10 persons at a time.
Are steam rooms good for your skin?
Enjoying regular steam bathing offers many benefits. Typically these include lower blood pressure, easing joint stiffness, improving circulation and a whole host of benefits relating to the respiratory system. Often overlooked though are the benefits to skin in general and to specific skin conditions.
More so, conditions such as eczema and dermatitis are understood to benefit more from using a steam room than using a sauna. The hot damp air drenches the skin resulting in a hydrating effect.
How often should you use a steam room?
There are many opinions on how often you should use a steam room. It’s worth noting that the general consensus seems to be 2-3 times a week. This however may change if you have a particular condition that benefits from continued use. Also, you may wish to undertake short exposure steam baths but much more often.
