The definition of a steam shower may not be known to each and every prospective customer in the Fairfax Station region, so let’s cover some of the basic characteristics that can be seen on most any steam unit. The first thing you will notice about a steam shower is that the walls of the enclosure extend from the floor all the way up to the bathroom ceiling. This is a key trait since it is what makes the unit capable of containing the steam within the shower area. Another thing that will catch your attention on a steam shower is the vent, or transom, which is what the user adjusts to create his or her ideal environment inside the enclosure. Now we’ll examine the specific steam shower featured in the photo in order to give Fairfax Station residents an even clearer understanding of this product.

To begin with, we notice that clear glass has been used to create a floor-to-ceiling shower enclosure that will yield a warm, humid atmosphere within the stall. Next, take a close look at the area above the shower’s single swinging door. This small piece of glass on hinges is the transom. As we inspect this shower, we also observe the frameless design in which little clips take the place of the aluminum frame so often used in the construction of glass stalls. Finally, we can see that the homeowner has chosen chrome hardware and a vertical pull handle for the door. The steam shower that a Fairfax Station resident orders for her or his home can look similar to this one or it can be very different. Here is just a sampling of the many possibilities that await your careful consideration –

  •    - Frameless, framed, semi-frameless

  •    - Swinging doors, frameless slider, bypass doors

  •    - Single door, double doors

  •    - Vertical  handles, horizontal handles

  •    - 20+ finishes for hinges and handles

  •    - Custom enclosure design
