Selecting Your Residential Sauna

A home sauna from can provide years of enjoyment if you carefully select the right sauna. If you want to install a home sauna, there are several design aspects you should consider.

Think about the following:

• How big do you want the home sauna to be? Portable saunas from Polar Sauna will seat only two people, but an outdoor sauna from Catalina Luxury Saunas can accommodate up to seven people. Figure out how many people you'd like to be able to use the sauna at a time, and how much space you can dedicate to the sauna

• How much do you want to spend? If money is no object when building your home sauna, go crazy: install all the amenities you want in your sauna without worry. If, on the other hand, you want to stay within a budget, consider what the most important aspects of the home sauna will be, and dedicate your money to that aspect. If you are on a strict budget, consider a portable steam cabinet from Aroma Steam

• What kind of heat do you want? Research the different kinds of sauna heat (gas, electric, or wood stove, or infrared) and figure out what will be the best for your home sauna

• Should it be inside or outside? Do you want a traditional outdoor home sauna, or do you have space for the sauna inside? offers various models of outdoor and indoor saunas from manufacturers like Polar Sauna and the Caatu Series from Sauna Warehouse

By carefully pre-planning your sauna, you will be happier with the end result.
