For $1000 – $5000 You Can Get the Pleasure and Health Benefit of a Steam Room in Your Home

Master Bath Remodel
Here is an example of an inexpensive ready-to-go steam room

I’m a steam bath kind of guy.  Maybe your a sauna lover.  It isn’t that I don’t like a sauna.  I just like the cooler, wetter, effect of steam.  For today, I’m talking about how cheap and easy it is to add a steam room to your home, whether or not you are doing a complete remodel of your bathroom.  On another day, we’ll look at the sauna or even a combination.

Years ago I added a couple of rooms to my house.  One was a family room.  The other a combination double tub with concentrated jets, twin shower heads, and a dry or wet rock pile for sauna or steam.  This was all enclose in a tiled 10 X 10 room.  It was great to look at, and a lot of fun to use.  The cost of all that was a lot less than you might think.

But, today I have different house.  The master bath has a full sized tub, glass sliding doors, and is quite separate from the rest of the room.  With no difficulty at all, I can add to the top of the glass slider enclosure and create a decent seal.  Or I could take out the sliders and replace with a unit that would completely seal that side.  The other three sides are all tile.  For under $1000, I can buy a steam generator, and Voila, I have a steam room.

Alternatively, I could take out the tub (there are other tubs in the house), and buy an enclosed unit that is all prefab and ready to install.  And those start at around $1400 and go up and up and up. For $2500 you can buy a very nice one.  Depending on the spot you want to place the unit, you may have some plumbing expense and then you have some minor construction costs
