What makes a shower Cabin or Steam Shower, such a popular product?

The steam showerenclosure has gained immense popularity with home owners searching for a modern and therapeutic appliance for their bathrooms.

Although now a common feature for the home these ingenious showering appliances were until recently an expensive form of therapy found only in exclusive hotels, gyms and spa retreats. It is really only through the advancements in technology that the price of these amazing devices has decreased making it become an affordable asset for the home.

For those who may have experienced a steam room, the steam shower is a concept very familiar in use as it is created in the same form as a shower enclosure. If you are unfamiliar with any of these devices then in short the steam shower cubicle is manufactured in the same shape as a shower cubicle and the same showering abilities. The difference being that the steam shower cubicle is produced within a self-enclosed cubicle and houses it’s very own steam generator. Each system comes fully fitted with a variety of additional features that can consist of LCD television, stereo or music system, radio, speakers, hands free telephone and mood enhancing lighting that is all controlled by a remote or touch screen panel. These additional gadgets are fitted within the constraints of the cubicle to enhance your enjoyment and these are just one set of the many features that come integrated within the interior.

The original concept revolved around a shower enclosure that was created for hygiene purposes. However as manufacturing practices started to improve it was not long before these devices became more and more complex. This soon led to the creation of the steam shower system we know now of today.

The whole idea was to produce a showering system that would provide you with the ultimate experience and so manufacturers started introducing a combination of elements that would allow you to savour the time spent within the shower cabin. So amongst the remote controlled gadgets you were also introduced to a vast selection of health giving attributes and therapeutic items. Items such as body massaging jets were integrated to provide you with a sensual body massage, foot and calf massaging system offering you a comfortable way to relieve aching feet. A small, yet powerful steam generator that sits in the base of the unit, this enables you to enjoy the opportunity of savouring the treatment of steam.

Whilst not all of these features are on all steam shower models, as with most products, features are changed and upgraded over time. AquaLusso have taken some common seen features out of their products in favour of higher quality components and improved visual appearance. Foot massagers, whilst in theory these are a nice item to have, they are generally poor in performance and a hindrance inside your shower. AquaLusso did a large amount of customer research on their products to realise that QUALITY is the customers key focus and most are attuned enough to discard products with 'wizz-bang' lists of gadgets that they will not use or break all too soon. The same seems to apply to lighting. Tray lights, tower lights and ceiling. It is adequate enough to have a ceiling light to provide cabin lighting. Many cheap branded or unbranded shower sellers choose to have lights fitted all over their shower. Again this may look impressive in a carefully staged picture, but in reality customers do not use them all beyond the initial first few weeks of the showers use. Another consideration is the access required should one of these bulbs fail. We know that LED lights are longer lasting, lower power consumption, but cheap products often have poor quality of circuit boards and this leads to failure. So how would you access the lights fitted in the low step shower tray ? Our guess is the only way is to take the whole shower to pieces as access to the areas needed is simply not possible any other way.

Most of all these remarkable cleaning cubicles are created for the user to be able to relax and unwind at any time they wish, all within the confines of their very own bathroom.
