Dreaming Of A Home Sauna For Winter Days? It Might Be More Affordable Than You Think!

On those icy winter days, there’s nothing cosier than coming home from the cold outdoors and unwinding in your personal home sauna. Some might prefer a hot bath or getting cosy in front of the fireplace, but it’s about time to take it to the next level.

So why should you invest in a private sauna to begin with? We’ve outlined some pretty compelling reasons for you. Just keep reading.

Reap the sauna health benefits 

… in the comfort of your home. Visiting a public bath has its charms, but these days it’s much more convenient, relaxing – and safe – to enjoy this ancient practice privately. 

The health benefits of sauna bathing are far-reaching, especially when it comes to wellbeing. An online global sauna survey by Australian researchers found that “relaxation/stress reduction” was a highly important reason for using the sauna. But regular sauna bathing promotes many other health benefits, including:

  • Pain relief
  • Improved sleep
  • Detoxification
  • Speeds up muscle recovery
  • Promotes beautiful skin 
  • Cardiovascular health 

A study from eastern Finland identified strong links between sauna use and improved cardiovascular health. The findings showed that “men who used the sauna two to three times per week were 27 per cent less likely to die from cardiovascular-related causes than men who didn’t use the sauna.” The Finnish know how to sweat it, and so should you!

Ready to use all year round, at your convenience

The health benefits of a sauna bath don’t stop with the season change! It might be easy to think of it as a winter activity, but you can safely use your custom-built sauna all year round. Plus, it’s a great bonding experience you can share with your friends and family (yes, even kids!). 

Jack Tsonis, the president of the Australian Sweat Bathing Association (ASBA) is encouraging all Australians to enjoy this traditional Finnish practice: “sauna, on the one hand, is a form of exercise … but it’s also well recognised as a social activity, especially in Finland and other places,” said Mr Tsonis for ABC News

How much could a Home Sauna Cost you?

Your own personal sauna doesn’t have to break the bank. 

Depending on your space requirements, you can expect a custom-built sauna to cost anywhere from $4000-10000. And a specialised sauna company will install it for you at home with a minimum of fuss or inconvenience. 

The price you’ll end up paying is dependent on room size, location, materials and finishing touches. Part of the decision-making process is where to put the sauna (indoor, outdoor), what sauna heater you choose and which accessories you need – and are best for your space.

In the long run, a custom-built sauna is an affordable way to enjoy the health benefits of sauna bathing in your own home, meeting your specific requirements.

But if you’re looking for a cheaper option, you can also opt for a DIY Sauna Kit, a prefabricated self-install model. The kits are usually designed for the most popular room sizes, and arrive at your house flat packed and ready to assemble. 

How much space do you need for a Home Sauna?

Whether you’re looking for a one or four-person residential sauna room, a custom-built sauna will provide the perfect solution for your space and needs.

Brendan from The Sauna Company says “No matter how much space you have available – or if you have a particular space in mind –, a professional supplier and installer will create a custom sauna experience to your exact specifications.” 


With all the health benefits associated with saunas, it’s no wonder that more and more cultures around the world are embracing this Finnish tradition. And if you want an individualised experience that works for your lifestyle, budget, space and needs, look no further than a custom-built sauna.
