Why Garden Rooms Make Ideal Saunas

Have you ever longed for your own private spa and sauna room, but thought that it was simply a pipe dream? Building a sauna in a garden room may be the answer you are looking for. Not only can you have a bespoke design, but you will also have a view of your outdoor green space, and a lovely cooling walk back to the house.

What are the benefits of a sauna?

Warm insulated rooms have been used for centuries to provide therapy and relaxation. They not only feel pleasant, but the heat raises the heart rate and dilates the blood vessels. This allows the blood to circulate more freely in the body, just as it does during moderate exercise. This can create a relaxing sensation, and promote better sleep.

People who suffer from joint pain and arthritis find that a sauna reduces the levels of pain and tension in the body, and improves their flexibility. There is also some evidence to suggest that the warm temperatures lower blood pressure, decrease the risk of heart disease, and relieve the symptoms of asthma.

How do you create a garden sauna room?

To ensure you get the right balance of heating, ventilation, and insulation in your sauna room, it’s advisable to consult a specialist company, who will be happy to design a bespoke structure to your specifications. Careful consideration of materials needs to be made, so that the room is thermally efficient, and heated in the most effective way possible.

Inside, the room will need good quality wooden benches to allow one or more people to enjoy the sauna comfortably. The heating will require a control panel, to allow you to adjust the temperature of the room to your desired level. The lighting design also needs to be well planned, in order to create that welcoming and relaxing ambience.
