Planning for an indoor sauna

Saunas have a lot of health benefits and allow you to relax and forget about the problems of life. It can be quite challenging to install by yourself an indoor sauna, but not doable.


Space is very important for a sauna.

It depends how many people can fit in. Usually an indoor sauna is no bigger than for 3-4 persons. As for the place of the installation, consider using the bathroom if it’s big enough. Also, you need to consider that you will need a shower to cool down after using the sauna.


There are 3 methods available for heating: electricity, wood and gas. Depending on the heat source, the planning must be done different. Electricity is one of the most convenient and widely used. Gas is considered a cheaper solution. The use of wood can provide a pleasant aroma. However, there are some regulations concerning this source of heating.


Indoor saunas are found in a variety of styles which range from prefabricated kits to custom made ones. Before you decide on the style of the sauna, consult brochures and sales room for inspiration.

Sauna kits are easy to assemble and can be purchased from any specialized shop.


Air need to circulate around the sauna to improve the heaters’ performance. You can bring fresh air in by installing a fan under the heater or by ensuring that there is a gap under the door.


Insulation is one of the most important things for a sauna. If the insulation is good, this will maximize their performance and prevent the heat from escaping. Aluminum foil is the best material to be used, and you can also install fiber glass too.
