The Original Finnish Sauna

Jun 26, 2008
The Finnish sauna is a neat outdoor sauna you might consider if you don't have the space to have a sauna inside of your home. It has a neat design and there are many reasons why you need the sauna outdoors.

The Finnish sauna has been around for centuries. In Finland, it is estimated that there is an average of one sauna per household. Saunas are extremely popular there. The benefits are far more recognized. This type of sauna is in the shape of a barrel. You can buy one today. The shape actually came from the fact that in Finland they would take the old beer barrels and turn them on their sides and convert them into sauna's so the barrels didn't go to waste. Today, the barrel shaped saunas you find are not actually beer barrels from Finland but they are designed with the same concept.

It is said that the Finnish sauna provides the best heat and steam circulation because of the circular design in comparison to the square and the rectangular saunas. These saunas are made of cedar and have a natural insulation which is capable of retaining heat while the sauna can still breathe.

You might consider a Finnish sauna for outdoors if you don't have enough space in your home for a sauna. You will need to be sure you have an extra room or a place you can design a sauna. You should also be sure you have the proper plumbing for a drain. Most people like to have a sauna near the bathroom so they can hop in the shower after spending time in a sauna. However, if you don't have space in your home then you will have to have an outdoor sauna and the barrel shaped saunas are designed with style and the look great.

A Finish sauna can provide the same benefits any other traditional sauna would provide. They are not difficult to put together. They are designed with Western Red Cedar which is durable and perfect for outdoor construction. Cedar also doesn't heat up like other woods do. The structure is solid and you don't have to worry about weather conditions stopping you from enjoying your sauna. The doors to the saunas are also fully insulated and they have tempered glass. The glass is double paned so it can withstand the high heat coming from the sauna and it is tinted so the ultra violet rays cannot get inside also.

The structure of the Finnish sauna also has bi-level seating which allows for even more people to come in and enjoy. The different seat levels also allow you to cool off at the higher level rather than leaving the sauna.

The Finnish sauna is a popular choice for an outdoor sauna. If you cannot have an indoor sauna then you might enjoy the round barrel sauna. There are many great benefits to this type of sauna and the red cedar is very nice looking on the outside of any home.
