Add A Home Steam Bath To Your House
With all of the remodeling shows on television now itís hard not to think of all the ways to upgrade your home for the real estate market. There is so much thought and effort put into getting the most money out of your home, that sometimes whatís important in a home is often forgotten. Because a large portion of these home shows are marketed towards people who are trying to make money on their homes, there are a lot of products that are poorly marketed or just plain lost in all the chaos. Whether you are selling, buying or just trying to make your home yours, your bathroom is certainly one of the key hot spots to do some much needed upgrades.
Most traditional bathrooms have the same elements in them for functionality. They all have a bathtub/ standing shower, sink with a cabinet, and a toilet. There are only so many things we can do to a bathtub and shower and sometimes new tile and shiny new fixtures just arenít enough. A home steam bath is the perfect way to update your bathroom while giving you something to look forward to after a long day at work. These beautifully European crafted units come in a wide range of pre-built sizes, but can also be customized to fit the exact space you are trying to fill. If you are tired of your bathtub and never use it, you should consider a steam room and shower combo. This will provide you with a standing unit that seals tightly to keep in all the beneficial steam, and also has the plumbing to fit a shower in the same space. There is no secret about the benefits of a home steam bath, they can help alleviate aches and pains, sinus pressure and ailments due to allergies, boost your immune system, as well as kick start your metabolism! Who wouldnít love to burn six-hundred calories in the shower every morning? I know I would!
If your bathtub is important to you and you find that submerging in warm water is as peaceful as it gets, research the steam baths that also incorporate a whirlpool tub. These units are also great space savers for homes with one bathroom and children who need to bathe in a conventional tub. Most pre-built residential steam rooms are made from high grade acrylic materials that are preformed. However, if you are looking into custom building your steam room you should take a few facts into consideration.
The temperature in your home steam bath will be between 104 degrees and 120 degrees, with a preferred humidity of 98 percent. Most sessions will last about fifteen minutes and should last no longer than twenty minute. All exposed areas of your steam bath should properly covered by tile, marble, or some kind of waterproof material. Commercial grade water-proof paint is okay, but isnít recommended.
The overall medical and mental benefits associated with a home steam shower are almost innumerable. Proper expectations and of course your share of homework should be done before making a decision on purchase. Whether youíre in the market to sell your home, or are looking to upgrade a lifelong home with something special for you and your family, steam rooms are quickly becoming a popular and healthy addition to your abode.
