A Steam room can be built in almost any location either indoors or outdoors.
With outdoor steam rooms you will require weatherproof roofing and suitable exterior cladding to stand up to all weather conditions.
Most commonly steam rooms are commonly built to fit into your bathroom area. The use of ceramics, marble and tiles or various forms of sheeting with full height glass walls will ensure that your steam room will be a feature in any home.

Modular steam rooms are either fibreglass, acrylic or hard plastic moulded sections which include the seating as part of the structure. As the cabins have a domed ceiling the energy use is reduced compared to custom built steam rooms.
The exterior of the steam cabins can be finished with any suitable material to blend in with the surrounding environment.
