Add a Personal sauna to your home

Your home should be a place where you can truly relax and take care of yourself. What better way to create an in-home oasis than a sauna built right into your space? When it comes to adding a personal sauna to your home, there are several things to consider.

When talking to a designer about your sauna design, you’ll want to think about what benefits you’re hoping to get from your sauna. Are you looking for a fully-immersive experience for a spa-like setting, or would a walk-in steam shower work? The experience you’re hoping to get from your sauna will determine the size of the space and the scope of work involved.

You’ll want to consider how much space you’re comfortable with using for a sauna. Even the smallest saunas take approximately 12 sqft to add. You’ll want to decide how much of your basement or bathroom remodel is okay to dedicate to a sauna space. When thinking about size, consider how many guests you would like to comfortably fit into your sauna, and where you’ll be installing the sauna.

A sauna can add a beautiful design touch to your space. You’ll get to select what kind of wood and panelling you’d like to use, and work with a designer to create a space layout that’s a custom fit for you. Other sauna customizations can include insulation type, door type and size, utilizing a sauna kit, if you want windows, heat and heat control preference, and the floor type.

You’ll want to decide if you’re going to use a DIY sauna kit or a professional fabricated sauna kit. A sauna kit will provide you with a pre-framed and insulated room that’s ready for installation by your design-build team. We’ll make sure that the kit is cut to size and install it on your behalf, and that it’s made to meet all of your desired customizations. When selecting a sauna kit, you’ll want to be sure that it comes with a warranty.

The door to your sauna can be a great point of design and customization. Choose from sleek glass or iron metal to add a high-design feature to your space. Choose how open and accessible you want to make your sauna, and what level of privacy you’re looking for.

The build time and cost of a sauna will depend on both the size of the sauna and how customized your space is. A high-design sauna with glass doors may take longer than a more standardized, smaller space.

On average, sauna’s add about $7,000 to a project, with prices higher or lower based on customization and scope of work.

Customer Reviews

FBC Remodel is proud to Build Joy® for homeowners. See what our customers have to say about working with us.

“We can't say enough about the design team at FBC. We had multiple companies bid on our project and everyone else came back with the same basic design (a good but not spectacular layout). But FBC looked at the space from a completely different angle and in the process was able to create everything on our wishlist including an extra room. The design was elegant and functional and our family now benefits from it every day.”

Michael S.

“The design/construction approach by FBC produced an excellent finished product for us. We added a large recreation room for pool, TV and games along with a bedroom and bathroom. Ceiling soffits, arched entries and angled walls created a unique and inviting space. The project team and trade partners did fine work and we are very happy with our new basement. All work was completed on schedule and within budget. The best part was having all construction access through the basement window. Our only advice is to carefully review all design details to assure that everything you want is clearly specified in the drawings. Then be part of the team by doing quality control as the project moves along.”

Darrel H.

“FBC did an amazing job with our 1600 sq ft basement. The sales team listened to our vision, offered several options and helped us stay within budget. Our PM was fantastic! We received daily communication with minimal life interruption, realistic expectations and partnered with us to ensure every aspect was covered. They even finished early!!! We had met with 2 other contractors and are so happy about our choice! They accommodated our quirky requests for a brewery room, rerouting our laundry dryer vent, closeting our water piping for access and exterior window well changes. Best choice ever!!!”
