How do you turn on water to heat up without getting wet? - I'm designing the same shower with same options (good idea on fold down seats), but I'm curious with your design how do you turn on the water so it can warm up without getting sprayed by the water?

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Tankless water heater. They are almost instant hot on... then you can step in, step to side, fire it, and get wet and enjoy shower. Some of those controls have preset temps too, so you don't have to fiddle with it once you set it with the temperature mix you prefer; just turn it on and enjoy.

Edit: just found out that there can be an exterior shower/tub temp control, that you can start from outside the enclosure and it lets you know when the water hits the preset temperature you desired; then you can get in... hm. On our shower I put the controls where you can reach in to nudge the handheld to the side and turn on, then step in and engage whatever else you want (showerhead bar plus handheld). The tankless heater is waiting for budget; I did plumb to pit it in later.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to How to Choose Tile for a Steam Shower
This porcelain tile offers up all the style of marble without the risk of mineral deposits ruining the finished look. Porcelain tile is also stronger than natural stone and can be a considered if wall-hung, fold-down benches will be used.Tip: Plan the layout your benches so that you won't sit right beside the steam head in your shower.
John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to Steam Showers Bring a Beloved Spa Feature Home
You don't need a large space to put in a steam shower. In fact, many are designed to stand alone, and can be purchased as a unit to be installed in your home. This steam shower is a favorite of mine. Designed by Holger Hoos, it's a hard-working steam shower that's part of a tub conversion. Tip: All steam showers need to be sealed well. We use a product called Kerdi Fix in combination with waterproof flashing material. Make sure to talk with your professional about vaporproofing options to build a shower that'll last for many years.
