Enhance your master bathroom this summer by adding a steam bath to it. Steam baths are an excellent way to turn your master bathroom into a luxurious way to unwind after a long day of swimming or landscaping in the sun.
Why Should You Get Them?
Steam can actually help you feel much better, especially if you are afraid of catching a summer cold. When you step into a steam bath, your body temperature will go up by a few degrees. While this may sound unpleasant at first, it will activate your immune system. Steam can also help clear up your skin and get harmful substances out of your system faster. Plus, your body and your mind will both feel much more relaxed – so you can relieve any tension or anxiety that you may be experiencing.
Ancient cultures all over Europe understood the benefits of using steam to help make baths more enjoyable. Roman cities, in particular, featured public bathhouses as social hubs for their citizens. But now, you don’t even need to leave your house to get the same beneficial results.
How Do They Work?
By now, you must be curious about steam baths and wondering how they could be any different than taking a bath in your regular bathtub. You could also build up plenty of steam through a long, hot shower to help revive you in the morning – that is, unless you’d prefer colder showers. In either case, here’s an explanation of how steam baths actually work. The steam bath is a small room of its own that takes the place of the bathtub and shower head in your bathroom.
Although you could theoretically install this in a guest bathroom to really impress your guests, that shouldn’t discourage you from upgrading your master bathroom as well. A steam generator is then added to your bathroom, but it is hidden somewhere else, and not necessarily inside your bathroom. Once that step is done, you only need to connect the generator to your home’s existing plumbing system. You can also still take regular showers once your steam bath is up and running.
How Can You Customize Them?
When you’re looking to customize the steam baths you add to your bathroom you’re not short of options. Think about it: a new shower head with massaging settings to help soothe your muscles, misters that can reach every part of your body, and even multiple shower heads. So whatever you’d like to add, it’s all up to you!
