Your bathroom is with no doubt a perfect space where you can relax your mind after a hard day's work. It gives you that peace of mind that you need after a stressful day. Another yet good thing about this space is you can transform it to another room in an instant. Some find a space where they can do their laundry too whilst others have seen the flexibility of the bathroom to be transformed into a sauna. If you want your bathroom to become a steam room in an instant, here are a few things you can do.
Begin by cooling down the room first
If you want to create more steam in the room, it is always best to cool it down first. The cold has its way of creating more steam later on when you want to enjoy it for the purpose. You do not have to turn on the water and set it to cold just to be able to do this. All you need to do is open a window whilst the doors are closed. The colder the weather outside the better steam you will enjoy during the sauna bath.
Make sure the bathroom is closed
Closed in the sense that you have to pay attention to every possible spot or hole where the steam may come out. Preparing a damp towel to be placed on the floor particularly at the bottom of the door will help so that the air will not get in and seep out of the space. Using duct tape to cover any tiny hole will help. You do not have to worry about paint coming off the walls where the tape is placed. The moisture created by the steam will help in easily removing the duct tape after your steam bath.
It is time to turn on the hot water
But before you do this, make sure that you have plugged the drain of your shower area. From here, you can turn on the knob of the shower to the hot water setting. In order to enjoy the steam that you have always been dreaming of, you must make sure that the shower curtains (or the shower door if you have one) are closed as well. Allow a few minutes to keep the room hot.
Turn on the cold water from your sink
Use that cold water to wet a towel. Apply the wet towel starting from your forehead then your nape. This will cool you down before you indulge in your sauna bath. The reason for you to go through this step is to make sure you will not pass out whilst enjoying the steam in the bathroom. Otherwise, you will end up stressed rather than relaxed after the bath.
Relax and enjoy the steam
After doing the steps mentioned above, you can now enjoy the steam in your bathroom. Make sure that there is a comfortable space where you can sit down and relax. Basically, you can choose to sit down on the toilet or in the corner of your shower. If your shower room has a bath tub, you can make use of that space as well. To enjoy it even better, close your eyes and take deep breaths whilst you let the water run to your body. You do not have to stay that long in the steam. It will only take ten minutes bathing in that steam room of yours before you shut off the water.
These are just quick and easy steps that will help transform your bathroom into a steam room. But of course, if you do not want to go through the same process every time you feel like getting a steam bath, it will be good to consider incorporating a space inside the bathroom where you can do so. Include it in your bathroom renovations as well.
