This is the ultimate in luxury and they are not as expensive as you may think. The smaller one person home sauna units can probably be installed in a large spare closet. Most lines will give you the option of a flat unit or a corner unit, at least on the larger 3 person models. We are going to look at the two person home sauna models, since that seems to be the most popular size. You really do not get that much room to stretch out in the one person home sauna models, but if space is limited, then they will be the option for you. There is not much of a price differential from one manufacturer to another, so the deciding factor could very well be the design and the type of wood. They all give you different choices.
If you are handy and want to save some money, take a look at the home sauna kit options available. It will take some time to do while most of the pre fab units can be up and running in less than two hours, but you do have a choice, and that is always a good thing.
Pay close attention to the electrical requirement for each unit. You really should have your sauna on its own circuit breaker and make sure that children cannot access it when you are not around. The temps can go over 100 and safety must always be your first concern.
These are more than just a fun thing. They are great health aids and really help you relax after a long and trying day.
