A Worthy Addition to Your Home
Outdoor showers are not generally considered a good idea except for specific predetermined purposes such as use alongside an outdoor pool installation. The stigma against public bathing is of course quite large due to the fact that public nudity is usually illegal, or at least is in most civilized places, and therefore if you want to take a comprehensive shower of that sort outdoors then you had better have a pretty good coverage available.
This coverage can’t simply be the flimsy curtains and whatnot common to many indoor shower systems- these are far too skimpy for your needs, as a shower installation located in the outdoors is likely to be subject to windy conditions.
Now, mitigating these windy conditions becomes less of the problem if outdoor shower steam rooms are part of your project. Rather than a mere flimsy cubicle of unreliable proportions, the steam shower room is typically constructed of sturdy and worthy materials which do not have the susceptibility to wind that a standards shower would. The reason for this is the simple fact that a steam room is built to specifications meant to run counter to the whole “letting things in” principle. The steam shower is about not letting anything out, you see.
However it must be considered that the primacy on ventilation for the average steam room is far more intense than that of a regular shower. The reason for this is that a steam room must vent, by definition, the excesses of steam that are liable to crop up in the process of their usage. This usage, if regular, must allow for regular venting lest the user be cooked alive like steamed lobster. This would be a delicious but ultimately quite horrid fate and should therefore be avoided with all your will and might.
So the outdoor steam room is quite a valid addition to your household equipage, but only if the ventilation is adequate. The general idea is that since the steam room is usually so sturdy, there is no reason not to have it outdoors, especially as that is its traditional location.
