Home saunas offer all the relaxation and luxury of a high-end spa, but in the comfort of your own home. A sauna in your home allows you to engage in the ultimate relaxation at the end of a long, tiring day, without having to make an appointment or pull your car out of the garage to get there.
Several different types of home saunas are available. Conventional saunas include those that use hot rocks and water to produce steam, smoke saunas use the power of an extinguished fire to raise the temperature in a room, and heat-storage saunas eliminate the possibility of eye and throat irritation from smoke. Electric saunas and infrared saunas are also popular additions to homes.
Home saunas don't have to be built into your home, though many homeowners prefer it. Saunas can be portable, and some quick-build home saunas take only an afternoon of work before you are free to enjoy your new investment. Basic saunas might cost several hundred dollars, while high-end site-built models can cost tens of thousands. Home saunas also come with a wide array of options, including heated towel bars, dressing rooms, thermometers, curved benches, decorative lights, and oils to keep the benches in good condition.
