The first thing you are going to want to decide regarding your outdoor sauna is where you want to put it. Of course, the primary reason for purchasing your sauna is for its many therapeutic benefits, but you'll also be impressed with its appearance and how it can enhance your outdoor space, if placed outside. This may even encourage you to expand your outdoor space and turn it into the ideal retreat.
There are two ideal versions of an outdoor Sauna that can act as a great starting point for building an outdoor oasis. The first is the Eclipse Garden Sauna. The second is the Traditional Swedish Barrel Sauna. While there are many other makes and models of saunas that are ideal for outdoor use, these two just have such an amazing look about them and fit into almost any type of outdoor environment.
The Eclipse Garden Sauna has the barrel shape, which automatically draws peopleâ€™s attention. The interior is large and spacious, and you have a choice of exterior finish including wood, copper or metal.
Regarding your garden, you want to think about your garden theme. Are you thinking of going contemporary or ultra-modern? The theme and style of your home has to be taken into account, as the outdoor living space flows from the house to the outside.
At the same time, try to give some thought to the primary purpose of your outdoor sauna. Is this something that you have invested in mostly for your personal use? Is it going to become your "getaway" space? Or, do you do a lot of entertaining and have decided the sauna would be something you could enjoy with your friends?
If the sauna is primarily for personal use, you want to install it in the part of your yard that is going to afford you the most privacy. You probably won't want it really close to the patio, but depending on the size of your yard, you still want easy access to it, especially during the winter months. If this is where your new sauna is going to be, you want to include it in the overall theme of the rest of your backyard decor.
If you are thinking about using it a lot for entertaining, you may want to build your outdoor living space so it begins right from the time you step out of the exterior house door. This space becomes like an extra room, which can be wonderfully decorated around any type of theme. Adding the outdoor sauna to this space just completes the ambience, and makes the perfect spot for the outdoor sauna.
