Home Sauna – Size Matters

Do you want a small personal sauna for only two to three people; or a larger sauna for family and friends to share as a group of five to seven people? Perhaps you’ve got limited space, or perhaps you only need to cater to so many people at once; saunas can be custom built to accommodate as many people as you think you’ll need. Of course the bigger they are; the more change in the price you’ll be seeing due to more wood and larger heating source required.

Heating your Garden Sauna

The therapeutic benefits of saunas have long been understood; and herein comes another important decision. How will you heat your sauna? If you opt to keep things more modern and have a location in mind with electrical access you could use electric heaters to warm those aching bones and muscles. Many of these models also come with programable temperatures; making sure that the heat levels will be just to your liking. They can also include timers so that your sauna will be ready to be enjoyed after a hard day.

If you want to keep things truly traditional for the full sensory sauna experience, then you should look no further than a wood burning sauna stove! Imagine the heat of a carefully prepared fire crackling away nearby; warming your room and melting those aches and pains away.

This method is clearly the only choice if you’ve got no access to electricity where you’ve decided to put your sauna and it does require more attention to regulate the temperature than a modern controlled unit, but for many, there is just something special about the whole ambiance a wood fired sauna creates; the sight, the sounds, the smell; you’re truly enjoying a moment.

So now you’ve got all you need to start dreaming up what sort of wood sauna you need. Just pick your spot, find a style that works for you and start down the path to relaxation today!
