Indoor vs. Outdoor Saunas: Which is Right for You?

December 19, 2023 | Tips & How-To

A sauna is a great place to relax, unwind and let the stresses of the day melt away. But if you’re considering adding one to your home, there’s one question you’ll likely need to answer first: indoor or outdoor? Both indoor and outdoor saunas offer many benefits to consider, and we’re here to break down the differences so you can make the best choice for your home.

Indoor Saunas

Indoor saunas can be a great use of extra space in your home and add a touch of luxury to your self-care routine. 

Whether a custom sauna built directly into your home’s infrastructure or a free-standing structure, these personal oases offer soothing, dry heat to maximize your health and wellness for years to come.

With features like full spectrum LED mood lighting, authentic Finnish heater and sauna stones, digital control with Wi-Fi and more, you can experience the luxury of Finnish sauna technology at your fingertips.

Outdoor Saunas

Outdoor saunas offer the same functionality and benefits as indoor saunas but are built to withstand the outdoor elements. Available in multiple shapes and sizes, like Barrel and Canopy Barrel, their distinct shape is designed to hold up against weather and offer a private retreat without taking up excessive space.

It’s no surprise, then, that a great feature of the outdoor sauna is freedom of placement. Plus, outdoor saunas can boast breathtaking views of nature while simultaneously improving your health. With your backyard sauna, you can take advantage of the beautiful natural features of your land and enjoy heated relaxation to the sounds of nature. 

Indoor vs. Outdoor Saunas: Comparing & Contrasting

There are plenty of benefits for both indoor and outdoor saunas. The best pick for your home likely comes down to your budget and preferences. Let’s take a closer look at some of the key differences between ThermaSol’s luxury saunas.

When choosing a sauna, consider your needs and how you plan to use your sauna. If you want something you can use as part of your daily wellness routine, an indoor sauna might be for you. Or, if you want an escape that allows you to enjoy your outdoor space while you relax, an outdoor model might be the best pick.
