: You don't need to build a shower to have a steam system. Installing the steam option is just as easy with a bathtub installation — easier, in fact.

A steam shower or steam bath often looks like any other bath or shower with the exception that you can fill the room with a thick fog of steam.
This is the evolution of the steam shower. Disguised as a regular shower, this space can be transformed into a steamy retreat. Ask your designer to make sure you have room for two in there. A sloped ceiling, the right amount of lighting and the ability to cool off under the showerhead can upgrade an average steam room experience to a great one.
Tip: You will want to be able to warm the bench ahead of time, so plan on a way to heat it or to have the shower spray hit the back of the bench wall and seat. A handheld fixture near the bench works perfectly for this.
