Cheshire Steam Rooms

Steam rooms are becoming an increasingly popular addition to the home. Clients can opt for a cabinet that combines shower and steam facilities in one luxury cubicle, or we can design and build a custom steam room or cubicle, tiled or mosaiced, installing the finest steam pumps for a truly luxury experience.


We install only the best. When considering the steam pumps, steam heads and other aspects of your steam room installation we consider only the most reliable and well-made components. Top of the list is Tylö a Swedish company who have been manufacturing steam room components and cublicles for both home and commercial use for the last 60 years.

Steam Rooms v Saunas

Saunas provide dry heat in a wood-paneled room from a wood or electric stove. They may have a small amount of steam if water is poured over the hot rocks, however a sauna overall provides dry heat. The temperature in a sauna typically ranges from 160-200 degrees Fahrenheit with a low level of humidity (ranging from 5-30 percent).

Steam Rooms provide moist heat from a water-filled generator pumping steam into the enclosed room. The temperature in a steam room typically ranges from 110-114 degrees Fahrenheit with a humidity level of 100 percent.

Health Benefits of Steam Rooms

The raised temparature created by the saunas produces sweating that opens pores and can temporarily cleanse the outer skin.

It can also help relieve the symptoms of those suffering with respiratory problems and allergies - though in this case steam rooms are thought the better option over the saunas since the moist air will help to clear sinuses and airways.

Other health benefit are claimed - such as removing toxins from the body (through sweating) or weight loss (caused by the heart working harder to cope with the increased blood flow to the skin and therefore burning calories), however neither of these claims have been scientifically proven.

Those with a heart condition should consult their doctor before using a sauna or steam room.
