The benefits of steam have been appreciated for thousands of years but it’s only been relatively recently that they’ve become available to ordinary people in their own homes. The Vidalux steam shower range makes the health and wellness benefits of the steam room at the gym available at a price people can afford, making it possible for everyone to enjoy the luxury of steam treatments in the privacy and convenience of their own bathrooms. Vidalux offers steam showers in a range of sizes from a compact 800 x 800 right up to a spacious 800 X 1200mm and beyond so there is sure to be something to suit all sizes of bathroom as well as all budgets. Steam showers by Vidalux all share the highest standards with regards to ease of installation, build quality and aesthetics and a core feature set with the upper-end models having outstanding functionality at an excellent price.
That Vidalux use the very same components that are found in the much more expensive “high end” brands and we believe Vidalux offers the best value for money for EXACTLY the same features and quality as showers costing twice as much
Ease of installation
If you’re worried that installing a steam shower cabin could be complicated, then you can relax. Assuming the plumbing is already in place, installing one of our steam showers is about as simple as any DIY job could be, partly because all Vidalux steam showers have been designed to be easy to assemble, partly because Vidalux provides all necessary hardware and partly because the installation guide is both clear and detailed and has a combination of diagrams and explanations written in plain English. Alternatively, if you prefer to avoid DIY or are just short on free time, it should be very straightforward and affordable to hire a tradesperson for the job, particularly since these self-contained shower cabins can be placed in front of untiled walls, thus saving both the trades person’s time and the cost of the tiles themselves.
Our products are investment pieces and as such are built to last and its this eye for quality that has quickly seen us become one of Europes leading brands.

The benefits of steam
Perhaps you’ve heard about steam showers and the benefits they offer, but been unclear about what they are. You know every single gym, spa and respectable hotel has a steam room but maybe you’re not sure why. Let us summarize for you. Steam gets right into the core of the body and cleanse it from the inside out, pushing out toxins and everyday pollutants such as dust and pollen which can easily be absorbed into the body through the air we breathe or polluted environment. It’s therefore particularly beneficial to anyone with respiratory issues and even arthritis as it softens mucus or soft tissues while increasing blood flow. It encourages the body to sweat and opens the pores to make sweating easier, thus helping to keep the skin in good condition. It also relaxes both body and mind, helping to ease away muscle pains and mental tension. In fact, some people may see this as steam’s biggest benefit in a hectic modern world.
Steam and aromatherapy are a superb match, which is why Vidalux steam showers incorporate it’s benefits to the fullest. As steam is water vapour it is an utterly pure base in which to carry essential oils, be that in the form of a ready-made blend or your own concoction. Again, this functionality is especially useful for people with respiratory conditions as it enables them literally to breath in oils which can help their condition, for example, menthol oils are known for their ability to clear out congestion in the lungs and sinuses and some of them have other beneficial properties, such as being anti-bacterial. Other people may wish to use it to treat other minor ailments, improve the condition of their skin even further or just help to improve their mental state.
Lighting can also influence how we feel, which is why all our steam showers are equipped with chromotherapy mood lighting which can either cycle through a range of colours or be set to stay on the colour which best suits your mood at the time of your shower. Depending on your choice, the effect can be calming or energizing, leaving you chilled out or raring to go.
Music is all about emotions and, as such, is just perfect for including in what should be quality “me time”. All steam showers by Vidalux are fitted with a superior sound system which incorporates FM radio. The main reason why Vidalux opted for FM rather than DAB is that even at this point in time, FM reception is much more consistent, both in the UK and across different areas in homes. This is one of the reasons why FM is likely to continue to be transmitted in the UK for long into the future. As well as FM radio our showers also have Bluetooth connectivity to enable you to connect your mobile device, with your own curated selection of music and play it through your steam shower’s speakers. Of course, Vidalux has ensured that all its steam showers are equipped with speakers which will perform capably even when the shower is operating to its maximum ability.
Touch Screen Control
Revolutionary touch screen control panel is at the centre of everything that goes on inside the shower – As a minimum, it controls the steam off/on, temperature and timer, but also the extractor fan, radio, Bluetooth, volume, ozone and chromotherapy lighting. Think of this device as the ‘Ipad’ of the shower and you get the idea
Of course you don’t have to have a steam session every time you shower, the range allows you to engage in any of the following, steam session, shower or steam and shower together, and of course you can shower in any way you wish be it from the large overhead rain shower, the hand shower or the body massage jets, all of which are controlled by the industry leading Vernet shower valve
More, So Much More
As mentioned above the showers come with so many features we could mention at length like the extractor fan, LED spot lights, Ozone cleaning system to mention a few. One thing we can say about all these features is quality, quality, quality. The 15 years Vidalux have spent evolving in this market, designing for other companies, installing, manufacturing means we know more than ANY other company what it takes to make a great steam shower.
