Every summer resident and owner of a suburban area dreams of building a bathhouse on a plot. When building a bath, owners often face the question: what should be the shelves in the bath so that they are both practical and convenient? You also need to decide on the height and width of the shelves.
The first issue that needs to be addressed is the number of levels of shelves. Two shelves will be enough if the height of the steam room is not more than 2.2 meters. You can set the third level if the ceiling height is higher. The distance from the ceiling to the upper level should be no more than 120 cm. The distance between the shelves should be no more than 50 cm. If you make the ceilings lower, the hot air will be under you and you will not be able to steam well.
You should also take care of the convenience of the steamer if you want to bathe with a broom. Since the person who soars another usually stands. At the same time, it is inconvenient for him to bend down or stretch his arms up. For this, a special low bench is usually made.
Shelf width also plays an important role. It must be calculated in accordance with the dimensions of your bath. The main condition is that the width should be sufficient so that it can be in a prone position. According to the advice of experts, the width should be at least 65 cm.
Shelf material plays an important role. Most often, linden and aspen are used to make shelves. They are inexpensive and easy to process. Also on the market they can offer the wood of the palm tree of Abashi. This tree grows on the African continent. Of the positive properties, low thermal conductivity can be noted, t.e. the shelf does not burn when heated. From the negative sides, it can be noted that Abash does not retain its color – the Abash tree has a bright color, however, after a while it darkens. Unlike Abash, aspen and linden retain their color.
