A steam shower calls for a moderate amount of space – typically around 900mm x 900mm. However, modern steam generators are becoming more compact and adaptable. But the general rule remains: the more steam you want, the bigger the generator.  


Want sleek and discreet? Consider cupboard installation for your generator. Alternatively, explore the new and more compact options on the market that can seamlessly blend into your shower enclosure.

Ventilation is the feature that keeps your comfort levels at their highest. It reduces stuffiness, without reducing steam. 


We understand the importance of getting that airflow just right. That’s why we recommend getting exhaust fans specifically designed for steam showers. These little powerhouses keep the air circulating, ensuring your steam experience is as comfortable and healthy as can be.

Steam valves put the power in your hands. Allowing you to adjust the heat, flow, and timer to your heart’s content. Ideally, install the controls in a convenient spot to ensure effortless relaxation every time. 


 In the end, it’s all about functionality. That’s why every space we create is tailored around you; in a way that allows you to tailor it yourself.

Mosaic tiles? Yes. But in 2024, we’re seeing a rise in popularity of large format tiles with sleek, rectified edges. These allow for minimal grout lines, creating a seamless bathroom aesthetic. 


Ceramic and porcelain tiles are classic choices, offering durability without compromising style. Want a wow factor? Go for glass tiles or natural stone. The bottom line: there are so many ways to use bathroom tiles. 


Top Tip: We believe in striking the perfect balance between style and function. Make sure your tiles have a non-slip surface for extra safety and ease, especially for your shower floor.
