Posted on 29 January 2020
The city that never sleeps has a new favourite past time: relaxing and unwinding in your own personal in-home sauna. New York City is defined as a trendsetter; a city for everyone to discover experimental art, music, culture and cuisine. One trend that is gaining popularity in New York City is installing an indoor or outdoor sauna. Whether you are looking for a small sauna to add to the master bathroom of your apartment or a backyard sauna for your home or cottage, there are a variety of options to suit every budget and home. An at-home sauna provides an oasis to escape the hustle and bustle of city life on your own schedule. Whether it’s after a long day at the office, the morning after a night out or after a tough session at the gym, your personal sauna will help you relax and re-centre yourself. In fact, a sauna is a great addition to any wellness routine. In this blog post, we’ll address some of these benefits as well as popular styles available for installation in New York.

Care & Maintenance
An at-home sauna provides years of luxurious escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. As opposed to a hot tub or swimming pool, saunas require significantly less maintenance, which allows you to relax and unwind without worrying about any daily chores. Although outdoor saunas require slightly more maintenance than indoor saunas, both require minimal work to maintain their function over time. For outdoor saunas, wood will begin to weather due to sunlight and precipitation. If this does not bother you, you can simply leave the wood to develop a weathered look for a unique aesthetic. Otherwise, you can prevent the weathering process by periodically using a low-pressure wash and applying a stain that contains a UV inhibitor to reduce the effects of sun exposure. In terms of interior maintenance, simply vacuum or sweep the inside of your sauna at your leisure. To remove any tough stains or dirt, lightly scrub the wood with warm water or use a fine grit sandpaper. For indoor saunas, the exterior does not need to be cleaned, but may require occasional dusting. Otherwise, maintenance of the inside of the sauna is the same as for outdoor saunas.
Benefits of Adding an In-Home Sauna
Both indoor and outdoor saunas provide a variety of benefits to homeowners. Saunas provide a true oasis to escape to after a hard day at work, a particularly grueling workout or a long day in the cold New York City winter. In your sauna, you can relax and unwind and take a moment to just focus on yourself. Saunas can help relax your muscles in order to soothe aches and pains. Whether you’ve finished a hard workout or are looking to reduce pain associated with arthritis or aging, a sauna can help you ease your suffering. The relaxation afforded by a sauna is also demonstrated to help aid in sleep, allowing you to fall asleep faster and reach a deep sleep more efficiently. Many people find that calming environment of the sauna helps them feel better overall and more rejuvenated, allowing them to clear their mind and relax their body. Whether you are purchasing the sauna as a unique design element of your home, a backyard treat or a spa-quality escape, a sauna is a great addition to any home or outdoor living space.
