Saunas are generally sold as complete rooms, either in kit form or as fully assembled units. Sauna rooms are one type of sauna that you can easily install in your own home. They do not require a lot of space and you can easily convert part of a room or an unused room in your home. You could create the perfect sauna as a corner getaway or even have the total outdoor type as a focal point of the patio. Even if you live in a condo or apartment, you can still enjoy the many benefits of a sauna, thanks to a sauna room.
Before installing your sauna room, make sure your unit has automatic back flush and drainage of steam which will stop any lime or chemical build-ups. The sauna room should not let any moisture escape from the doors. Steam omitted from the unit can cause harm to the fabric and other objects of the room. The warm, humid conditions of a sauna room serves as an excellent breeding ground for bacteria and other harmful viruses, therefore the room should be often washed clean with water.
Cedar wood is one of the popular choices for sauna rooms, it feels cool upon touching, has a mild pleasant fragrance, resists staining and doesn’t splinter easily. It has properties which allow it to expand and contract which is particularly important in a sauna where the wood is exposed to extremely high, dry temperatures, interspersed with blasts of humidity when water is splashed on the heater or the walls. The atmosphere inside the sauna room is hot, and the steam generator can sometimes raise the temperature of air to such a degree that it affects some people and their breathing, especially asthma sufferers. For this reason, you should pay close attention to the control panel and make sure it maintains a suitable temperature at all times.
Sauna rooms offer great privacy and safety in that you can easily walk around without anyone seeing you in your bathrobe or your swim suit. Indoor rooms also prevent one from having to walk outside, especially in cold conditions. Consider installing waterproof speakers in your sauna room to add musical flavor to an already soothing atmosphere. Your room can become a haven of relaxation and comfort.
