Live a Little – Luxury Like This Doesn’t Cost a Lot
I’ve always wanted a home theater. Room. You know, the massive TV on the wall, sound system that rocks the foundations, acoustics designed by a master, and chairs that adjust, recline, heat, cool, vibrate, and give me a foot rub. I have a friend who does these rooms. $100,000 and up… after the construction.
But the truth is, I have a great flat screen TV, excellent Bose surround sound, recliner chairs and a massage unit that heats and vibrates. So, while I can dream of the real thing, I have a “good enough” version.
But a steam room is another thing. The pleasures and benefits of a good shower are appealing enough, but add in that steam and eucalyptus oil and you might be talking about a slice of what God has planned for us in heaven.
And the really cool thing is that you can modify many existing showers for around $1000, get a full prefab unit for under $2000, do a complete custom job for under $5000, and beat the Ritz for $25,000. We’ve done the searching for you and pulled together some of our favorites.
You may prefer to build in a custom unit using various combinations of tile, wood, glass, or stainless steel. Many of the less expensive units also have some plastic components.
Multiple shower heads, large baths with jacuzzi jets, and optional dry sauna can add to the total effect.
For me, I want some music in the steam room, so many of the prefab units do include sound systems, and a custom design can easily accommodate any quality of sound system you may like.
