An indoor sauna can be quick and convenient, especially when you value privacy and don’t wish to step outside. Indoor home saunas in Montreal are easier to access in all conditions; come rain or snow, you need not worry about roofing, weatherproof exteriors or regular maintenance. With wiring and water access, an indoor sauna can be placed in most areas of your home. Install one in the bathroom of your small apartment, or dedicate an entire room for a luxurious personal sauna spa! Here are some sauna spots that can work for your indoor sauna: 

  • Bathrooms
  • Any spare room
  • Storage closet 
  • Basement
  • Attic
  • Upstairs 

Outdoor Placement Options

An outdoor sauna can be a perfect getaway for home sauna enthusiasts—a tranquil, relaxing space in your backyard! An adjacent pool for a refreshing dip post sauna sounds like the epitome of luxury! Outdoor saunas require adequate space, privacy, proximity to power, and preferably, a structure to shield the sauna exterior from the elements. Place your home sauna outdoors if you plan on having a large sauna (think sauna bashes!) or want space for an invigorating hot yoga session! If you have a cottage in the mountains, take your sauna outdoors—feast your eyes on the majestic mountains or a scenic lakeside. Outdoor sauna spots include:

  • Backyard
  • Home Garage
  • Patio
  • Poolside
  • Deck

Home Sauna Placement Considerations 

Consider the following when choosing your home sauna spot:

Flooring: If you’re building your own home sauna, choose floors made of stone, concrete, or wood. Prefab saunas already have cedar or other hardwood that can withstand the rigours of sauna use. Ensure that the sauna is placed on a level and sturdy surface. 

Power Access: Your home sauna should have easy access to power. Double check connections and ensure the wiring is clear of water or other hazards. Involve a licensed electrician for wiring a DIY sauna or placing it outdoors. 

Moisture Control: Provide adequate drainage for the sauna so that water does not accumulate around the sauna. 

Access to Shower/Pool: A traditional Finnish sauna is incomplete without a refreshing dip in the lake!—replicate the effect by placing your sauna near a shower or pool.
