For all the music and pop lovers shower is the right their favourite place. After all it is known to be the best place to strain your vocal chords. Well, showers are commonly preferred than baths across the globe. One of the main reasons is time. Bath is a luxurious treatment to pamper your body. In daily life it is not possible to devout an hour or more for bathing. Therefore, a quick shower is usually preferred. It helps in kicking off tiredness and laziness. After a shower you feel fresh and energetic. When hot water is poured from the shower it cleans dust, grime and gives you a relaxed and rejuvenating experience. Shower provides refreshing and re-energising spirit and is thus mostly preferred.
Another reason for preferring shower is the utility bills. By installing solar panels at your home you can get hot water in the shower round the clock without worrying about the utility bills. As the water is heated by solar heaters, you don’t have to use the electric water heaters. On the other hand those who use bath have to heat the water, regulate the temperature well and then bathe. While bathing in the tub the temperature of body is believed to be higher than in shower. This is because the water is the tub is stagnant therefore, when you stay in the tub for long time; the temperature of the body too gets warm. In shower as it is constant flow of water the temperature of the body is relatively cooler than the tub.
Showers are the right choice for those who want speed. Bath in tub takes a lot of time. It is the right choice when you want to relax, revive, rejuvenate and pamper yourself. When you have lots of time and want to pamper yourself with a nice aromatic bath or a bubble bath then tubs are the right choice. However, in daily life when you have to rush to your office, do the daily chores and lots of other work to do; you have to opt for shower. You cant wait till the tub fills or drains. Just quickly you turn on the shower and then leap out once you are done.
Showers are known as the right choice for all those who are suffering from cold, lung problems, asthma, bronchitis and allergy. In shower as there is constant flow of water from a particular distance cold, bronchitis or lung problems can be avoided. In bath one spends lot of time in water therefore the chances of cold are high. A hot shower bath can relieve their problems effectively. Those who are suffering from muscular stretch or spasm may find using bath tub to be effective. As one can spend more time in tub the muscles tend to relax while bathing. This can be done occasionally but for everyday life showers are the right choice. Therefore, one can find increase in the use of showers than bath tubs today. After all, hardly one has time to have a leisure bath everyday.
While you plan to re-work the bathroom space, the first thing you need to consider is its design. While working on bathroom remodeling ideas for small bathrooms, try not to change the existing layout and plumbings. You can either add or reduce the elements, but avoid shifting the major elements. If you have a bathtub then you can consider adding a shower enclosure, or steam shower. You could also consider adding a combination unit which will replace your current bath and in most space give you the feeling of much more room in your bathroom with this fully enclosed whirlpool bath and steam shower. Apart from this, add a wall hung vanity to the basic. Corner, wall hung basin is best to be added instead of pedestal basins that occupy a lot of space. Utilize the corner space as much as you can. If you are adding a shower stall consider using glass as this will not give a blocking effect.
The heated towel rail is the latest invention in designer bathroom accessories, always providing a warm towel for you to dry off after a relaxing bath or shower. Taking the ordinary towel rack one step further, it helps to reduce the time you spend picking up wet towels all over your bathroom, day after day.

- What they are
- Why people use steam rooms
- How to take steam baths
Steam baths have been popular for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks used to take them, as well as the Romans, Turks, and Russians. Today, steam rooms can be found in most spas and health clubs, but...
Thanks to developments in steam generator technology, residential steam rooms are becoming more and more popular.
What is a steam room?
A steam room is an enclosure with an average temperature somewhere between 115 - 125 degrees Fahrenheit. A steam generator is used to keep the room filled with thick clouds of mist.
Steam rooms are made of water proof materials (tile, cement, marble, etc). The room has to be well sealed to prevent the steam from escaping and to prevent moisture damage to the surrounding structure.
Why do people take steam baths?
People use steam rooms for a variety of reasons...
To let off steam! - I personally love the steam room for the relaxing feeling that comes when I step in. For me (and many others) the effects are instant, the steam room is one of the most soothing places to go. If there is any tension before you step in, you’re almost guaranteed to feel lighter when you come out.
Improve skin complexion and tone - Steam bathing is great for skin cleansing and softness, regular use can help keep your skin smooth, soft, and glowing.
Pain relief - The heat produced in a steam room can provide temporary relief for muscle and joint pain. Steam bathing on a regular basis can also help injuries heal faster.
Respiratory relief - Steam has been used over the centuries to ease congestion and provide relief for various respiratory ailments.
How to take a steam bath
There aren’t too many rules, but…
Don’t eat first - Wait 1 or 2 hours after a meal. The effect of heat on your blood circulation can interfere with digestion.
Dress light - Or not at all! Some people do go nude. I use the steam room at the gym where I work out, and I wear a towel to sit on and soak up perspiration. If you have your very own personal home steam room, suit yourself!
Drink water - Drink at least 8 ounces before you start a steam bath.
Don’t stay too long - Yes, a steam room can be incredibly relaxing, but try not to stay in past 15 or 20 minutes. Some people do prefer to stay longer, listen to your body; it will let you know when it's time to go.
That’s really about it.
If you have any health complications, make sure you talk to your doctor first to make sure steam bathing won’t be harmful to you.
