Steam Rooms for Home – The Benefits of a Steam Room
Steam Room Benefits
Steam Room Benefits. Adding a sauna or a steam room to your home may not be the most obvious choice when renovating or building your dream home from the ground up, but if you’ve got the space why not add this bit of luxury?
A sauna or steam room can help with relaxation after a tiring day or when the weather is freezing outside. By having a sauna built into your modern designed bathroom or gym complex you will enjoy the benefits they provide to keep you fit and healthy for years to come.
In this article, Steam Rooms for Home – The Benefits of a Steam Room, we gathered some of the best Sauna and Steam Room examples to highlight possibilities of how you can incorporate this spa luxury into your living space.
Steam Room Vs Sauna
The difference between a sauna and a steam room is normally a dry sauna and a wet steam room. Saunas (my favourite) will provide a dry heat that will eventually make your pores open and you will sweat.
This will be quickly or slowly depending on the heat of the sauna. With a steam room you will generate a moist heat. If the steam room is very hot this can be very relaxing as it works quickly in opening your pores.
However, from my experience this is not always the case. Most steam rooms do not generate enough heat and can take quite a while before you feel anything happening. If you stand up in the room, you feel the benefits more as the heat rises quickly to the ceiling and form water droplets.
Both can open your pores, loosen up your muscles and help you relax.
Step inside this contemporary corner and take a break from the day. Release toxins, sweat a little and enjoy this zen space right inside your home. If you’re inspired by simplicity and subtle texture, this design may be what you need inside your house! This is a great mix of modern and Asian-inspired styles.
Here’s a smaller example you can place in your house and even in a bathroom. Just a nook can transform into a seat for two if you design it just right. And this is a very raw, natural look combines with some contemporary tones and shapes. It’s the unfinished wood that gives the area a warmer, more rustic presence.
A sleek space with multiple seating options. This example is paired with a marble-covered bathroom, mixing the organic stylings of a luxurious spa and a ultra modern room to do your daily routine in. The strong lighting also highlights the beautiful texture and colors of the wood inside.
This floor plan has a much more masculine vibe and not as chic and sleek as some of its predecessors. There’s a definitely simplicity and easy charm about it but the dark spaces between wooden pieces give this a stylish yet manlier nature and the warmer, softer lighting inside makes it a more romantic and inviting design.
One of the most modern designs of the bunch, this idea wreaks with of sophistication and fashion-forward appeal. We love how it’s a standalone room instead of being attached to the family-bathroom or couples’ space. Walk-in, close yourself off from the world and enjoy a bit of “me” time while inside.
Now, here’s a eclectic design you don’t see everyday. We’re used to modern lines and clean edges, this rustic, cabin-fevered design is drenched in homey, cozy vibes. Soft, fluid shapes and a view that can’t be beat – the entire family or a handful of guests can enjoy this space before (or after) a dip in the lake is taken.
Believe it or not, you can create an idea full of gorgeous tiles too. It’s a much more modern style than a classic wood or bamboo choice and we love the glisten and shine this can add to your time of luxury. Just keep things neutral for a more relaxing ambiance. Pay attention to the sloping seats as well, adding a more feminine touch to a colder area.
Shine bright with a glittering bathroom, that has a hidden steam room too! This entire place is covered in sparkling tiles, but this space is highlighted by a classic wooden door with a stylish pattern. And although we can’t see inside, we love how this accent incorporates a more traditional tone.
Inside this example, you can sit, of course, but lay down too! While you sweat take a 5-10 minute nap to refresh and revive. We love how this design utilizes every bit of space inside this bathroom and the sloping ceiling just adds extra style and unique appeal. This one doubles as a dry sauna too as you can see the rocks and heating mechanism.
We saved the best for last, or at least our favorite. This sleek and chic design is the most posh of the bunch and we love how it combines deep, wooden tones with modern tiles and beautiful neutrals. The curved corner example adds a more unique look than a simple square treatment and we’re inspired by the design that may be small but also very strong.
