Archive for Steam Shower Pictures
Our visitors (and most potential steam shower owners) often have trouble understanding exactly what a ceiling rain showerhead is. This picture gives an accurate picture of why these types of showerheads (also known a “amazon rainshower”) are so desireable. They drench your body in water in a relaxing and rejuvenating manner.
A modern bathroom design with room for a bathtub, walk-in shower, and travertine tile flooring. The high ceilings make the bathroom feel spacious, and the white crown molding adds a touch of luxury. The skylights allow in natural light which makes the entire room look even more open. The designer was careful to match the shower wall tile to the floor tile, and glass shower door swings both ways.
A luxury bathroom design featuring a home steam shower and bathtub dropped into a classy tile skirt. The white base of the shower keeps the room from looking too modern, while still taking advantage of the glass so the shower doesn’t feel claustrophobic or cramped. One interesting thing to notice about this bathroom design is the simple color scheme. There are only three colors in the entire bathroom: the stained wood of the cabinet, white and and the noche dark of the tile.
This is an absolutely gorgeous bathroom design with a whirlpool steam shower. The picture is taken from a house located in Miami, Florida. The bathroom makes great use of space, allowing for a walk-in shower / steam room, Jacuzzi bathtub, and poured concrete / dark stained wood vanity. The bathroom isn’t huge, and yet it fits all of this without feeling cramped. Each section of the bathroom uses a different shape / size of tile, and yet they fit together in perfect harmony. The bathroom mixes the best of modernism and minimalism, offering wonderful functionality and elegant simplicity at the same time.
This is a good example of how even a small bathroom can fit a steam shower. Many homeowners have the misconception that a steam shower takes up additional space, but in actuality it simply requires a seal around your existing shower and good construction practices.
This shower room was built using only 18″ x 18″ square noche dark tumbled travertine tiles. The bench is large enough to hold several adults, and the simple but effective brass showerhead offers a classic feel. This is an example of a simple shower design that offers a comfortable feel and a stylish look.
This luxury bathroom design features a green theme, with a Jacuzzi bathtub and a steam shower. The glass block lets natural light into the bathroom. Behind the door on the left is a dedicated toilet closet.
Another example of a custom enclosed shower room that serves as both a shower and a steam room.
This bathroom features a long, comfortable whirlpool bathtub by Kohler, and a custom glass steam room / steam shower enclosure with multiple showerheads. Most of the bathroom is made from marble, which looks gorgeous but stains easily. The vanity features a stone vessel sink.
This steam room / shower combo is built solidly and fits well into the bathroom. Our issue with it is the inward swinging door. With plenty of space in the bathroom, the door can make it difficult to get out of the shower once you are in, without offering much benefit. The bathtub also feels cramped because of the unnecessary archway built around it.
This steam shower, located in San Francisco, California, is made from 2×2, 4×4, and 12 x 12 tumbled travertine tiles. The shower includes 3 shower heads, a variety of hot/cold knobs, and a 6 KW steam generator. The black fixtures fit seamlessly into the design of this shower.
On the left is a classic steam room, with a bench and enough room for two adults. On the right is a doorless walk-in shower with translucent glass tile to allow light in but not take away from the bather’s privacy.
This bathroom design was possible because the contractor had so much space to work with. In addition to matching vanities, the bathroom fits a Jacuzzi bathtub and a separate steam shower enclosure. Despite having plenty of space, the builder chose to combine the steam room with the shower. A look inside the steam shower showers a pair of simple shower heads, two wall jets, a small bench, and elaborate travertine tile designs and patterns.
This homeowner elected to leave the steam function off and create a stylish walk-in shower. Taking the glass up to the ceiling and adding a glass door would have allowed this shower to function as a steam room, as well. We included it in this section because the design is so tasteful.
This walk-in shower offers an interesting touch. When you want to use it as a steam room, you can shut the door. Otherwise, leave the door open and you have a walk-in shower that is easy to get in and out of. Walk-in showers (and walk-in bathtubs) are especially useful if you have an elderly or disabled member of your household. This shower offers a simple but effective overhead ceiling rain shower, outdoor lighting, and a travertine tile finish.
This wonderful custom steam room is built from blue and gray travertine tile and stone, designed with the feel of a rocky riverbed.
It’s one thing to talk about steam showers and steam rooms, but it’s another thing to see examples of real custom and kit steam showers. Today we are beginning a series of posts with pictures of steam showers from existing houses. The point of the post is just to get an idea of various styles and building materials that you might like in your house. We aren’t going to get technical or explain the mechanics behind the various showers.
Our first example is a built-in steam shower with tile. This is a classic travertine tile shower with a glass door that completely seals the shower.
