The Key Differences Between Sauna Kits & Pre-Fab Saunas

Posted on 31 July 2023

Imagine stepping into a blissful world of tranquil rejuvenation, where stress-free relaxation is a life mantra. A sauna offers precisely that, and having one in the comfort of your own space can enhance your overall well-being and elevate your lifestyle. When venturing into the realm of home saunas, you’ll have a plethora of options. Sauna kits and pre-fabricated (pre-fab) saunas are two prominent choices.

Read our blog to learn the critical differences between these options and discover the perfect sauna experience tailored to your needs.

Sauna Kits vs. Pre-Fab Saunas: The Basics

home sauna kitSauna kits offer a delightful opportunity to build a customized sauna from scratch. They typically include all essential home sauna components like wall panels, benches, sauna heaters, and other accessories. DIY enthusiasts and homeowners can customize the sauna as per their requirements. You can give wings to your creativity and actively participate in the sauna assembly process!

In contrast, pre-fabricated saunas are ready to install pre-built units. These factory-made saunas come in various designs and sizes and can be easily installed within hours. The convenience and versatility of pre-fab saunas make them a hot favourite for sauna lovers.

Customization Combos

Sauna Kits offer unparalleled customization options, including wood type (cedar, hemlock, or aspen) and sauna heaters. You can experiment with different types of benches, layouts, and sauna sizes that perfectly align with your preferences and available space.

Though pre-fab saunas seem more limited in terms of customization, they often offer additional options so buyers can tailor their experience. Bespoke pre-fab saunas from SaunaFin allow personalization with expandable units and can be used both indoors & outdoors. Adding a pre-built changing area or a porch allows you to create a complete wellness space!

Sauna Kit: Pros & Suitability

Sauna kits are ideal for homeowners who wish to integrate a sauna into an existing indoor room or wellness space. Though they require considerable assembly skills, sauna kits provide the flexibility to adapt to your specific space, budget, interiors, and requirements. Sauna kits are ideal for areas with a controlled climate–basements, spare rooms, or dedicated wellness spaces within your home.

Pre-Fab Saunas: Pros & Suitablility

Pre-fab saunas are a super convenient and easy-to-install option for homeowners. They’re usually freestanding–can be installed anywhere(indoors or outdoors). They also have pre-installed lighting, wiring, and a choice of pre-fitted sauna heaters and accessories. Pre-fab saunas are particularly suitable for country cottages or homes with outdoor spaces. They offer a seamless blend of aesthetics and wellness, your outdoor oasis to soak in nature’s beauty. Portability is another distinct advantage of a pre-fab sauna–you can easily uninstall and move it when you shift or sell the property.
