A major cost in upgrading to a steam shower involves the curve of the stall. In particular, the curvature and slope of a shower ceiling is important to the distribution of steam. Steam is not maximised "if the shower ceiling is flat," states an article in Fine Home Building magazine. A curved ceiling, however, makes condensation distribution more even.

Be Sure It Does Not Bother You

Steam showers are not popular with some people due to phobias. Steam can cloud and prohibit vision--making you feel enclosed. Even shower stall doors made of acrylic and/or fibreglass will become fogged. Because of this, according to Fine Home Building, "some people find being enveloped in steam too claustrophobic".

Bottom Line

An average steam shower should cost a homeowner approximately £1,300. Fine Home Building states that this cost can be but the beginning of expenditures, depending upon the elegance of the shower design. A vapour barrier and/or bath fan can be additional help in distributing moisture and steam.
