Bathrooms are getting bigger as we spend more time there. Many homeowners strive to create a personal oasis in this room for relaxing at the end of a busy day. One popular spa feature moving into the home is the sauna as an ideal way to relax and release the stress of the day.

After several slow years of home renovations, homeowners are again investing in luxurious home upgrades, especially in the bathroom. Finnleo and Amerec, divisions of TyloHelo Inc., have noted an increase in the number of bathroom remodeling projects that include both a sauna and a steam shower.

Saunas and steam showers are complimentary design elements in a bathroom. A shower adjacent to the sauna is ideal for cooling off between sauna innings or at the completion of your sauna time. Steam is an easy-to-add shower enhancement without requiring any additional floor space. Since a steam generator can be tucked into a nearby cabinet or mechanical room and does not intrude upon shower space, a standard shower can be easily converted to a steam shower, allowing the homeowner to enjoy the benefits of sauna AND steam.

Health benefits of sauna and steam include:
• Both relieve stress
• Both relax muscles and soothe aches and pains in muscles and joints
• Both flush toxins
• Both cleanse the skin
• Both induce a deeper sleep
• Both can be used for aromatherapy
• Both feel great!

When asked why both a sauna and steam room is desired, many homeowners said they prefer a steam shower as a start-the-day-pick-me-up while the sauna is preferred after a workout or for relaxation.
