What you should think about first

Future owners of the baths Sometimes they do not think at all about how their bath will be used, for example, in the winter. But this is very important! Thermal insulation of the bath should be such that could withstand the temperature drop from +90 ° C in the steam room to -35 ° C outside. And such a large temperature drop invariably leads to the appearance of condensate, which will necessarily affect the service life of the materials from which the bath is made. And it is better not to take foam plastic as thermal insulation - although it does not deteriorate due to condensation, mice like to settle in it.

Floor covering

You should not make the floor cement and put tile on it if the bath is a separate house, which is also not heated in winter. There is a high probability that the floor and tile on it will crack.

Air Circulation

The bath should have a well thought-out air circulation - inlet in the floor area and exhaust in the ceiling area. And between the insulation and the wall should be a gap of at least 5 cm for air circulation and prevent the formation of condensate.
