Sauna Shower/Bathtub

I am near closing on an older home, and I'm starting to plan for some remodels. One of the most intriguing ideas to me is putting in a sauna shower, as many can be found for relatively cheap in online stores.

I am a first-time home buyer with a lot of ambition for this house, so I want to do as much research as I can before I make final decisions.

After researching sauna showers, I have found no unbias reviews or actual customer comments. I am wondering if anyone owns or has owned a sauna shower in their home, and if there are any benefits or consequences that I should expect to experience. Thanks!

Sauna Shower/Bathtub

Expect to spend a lot on the materials and door for your unit. A steam shower or sauna walls and ceiling should be covered with a water proof membrane before installing tile with firmset(not mastic).

Also the ceiling should have a slight slope towards the back wall-If left flat water will condense and cold water will drip on you.
