How to implement a Sauna design project in your tiny home ?
The presence of a bath or a sauna in a private house is no longer surprising. But thanks to modern technology, it is possible to install a sauna cabin even within a city apartment. Saunas have an important and often decisive advantage over the Russian bath – they are versatile, it is easier to build them from scratch or install in a ready-made room. It all depends on the amount of space available, the choice of sauna capacity and the financial capabilities of the homeowner.
If you have decided on the area for a home sauna, you need to decide how many people the steam room should accommodate at the same time. For one or two people, you can do with a sauna booth, for a family vacation you need a large area, for receiving guests it is absolutely necessary to take care of a relaxation room, in addition to the steam room in the sauna itself.
Sauna cabins for one or two people
Currently, you can purchase a ready-made sauna booth or assemble it from separate panels, it all depends on how individual appearance, functionality and design you would like to receive.
A small sauna booth can be installed directly in the bathroom, the only condition for installing the finished structure is a few centimeters of stock between the ceiling of the room and the upper part of the booth. The height of such cabins usually does not exceed 2 m, which is caused by the requirements for the normal operation of ventilation.
Even in a small corner of the bathroom, you can place a booth, which looks more like a steam room for one person. The advantage of ready-made structures is that they already assume the correct placement of the oven and ventilation.
Ready-made sauna cabins are available in various sizes, made from different types of wood, but mainly from aspen, linden and some conifers.
Doors to mini saunas are usually all glass or have a wooden frame with large transparent glass. This choice is due to the psychological component, which must be taken into account in small confined spaces.
If there is a window in one of the walls, even a small one, this opportunity must be used. This will allow not only to defuse the psychological tension of a small space, but also to provide it with additional lighting.
An individual order of a cubicle presupposes, first of all, a unique design, which can become both a harmonious addition to an already finished bathroom project, and also act as a “highlight of the program”, catching all eyes.
You can even install a sauna cabin in the attic or within the attic space. These are premises that are often empty or used as storage for things that are rarely used. Establishing a useful and practical place to relax with a sauna is a rational embodiment of the dreams of many homeowners of private houses with an attic.
Sauna design with pool
If the area of a private household allows, then arranging a pool within a home sauna takes the project to a completely different level. Plunging into the cool waters of the pool after a hot steam room is not only a pleasure, but also an excellent hardening for the whole body.
As a rule, the interior of the steam room and the room for the pool is connected only by the floor covering. Most often, all surfaces of the steam room are faced with natural wood, which is not treated with varnish or any other substances. For a pool room, there is nothing better than using tiles, mosaics or stone for surface finishing.
The type of wood that will be used for finishing the steam room can be selected based on the color palette chosen for the rest of the surfaces of the pool and relaxation room.
This semicircular swimming pool steam room is perfectly adjacent to the modern wine cellar. Autonomous heating and cooling systems make it possible to place such utilitarian structures with different characteristics and functionality within the same room.
Natural stone in sauna design
The decoration of one of the walls, not only of the sauna room, but also of the steam room itself, allows you to add variety to the total wood decoration, without compromising practicality. Natural stone is able to withstand high temperatures, it is moisture resistant and durable. But, of course, natural material increases the cost of a sauna project and makes it more costly in terms of time and labor.
The harmonious combination of stone and wood helps the design of the sauna acquire individuality and charm.
Dark stone tiles provide an excellent contrast to the warm, reddish tones of wood.
The use of several types of stone coverings of different textures and shades within one room creates a stunning effect. In such a company, even marble-styled porcelain stoneware will look chic and natural.
The raw stone effect brings a natural element to the sauna room. A bit of rusticity has benefited this contemporary space with an expressive ambiance.
The use of pebbles instead of stone or ceramic tiles for flooring is an interesting design move that makes the room unique and original. Not to mention the benefits of foot massage while walking on the textured floor.
Just one stone wall transforms the entire sauna environment, providing contrast and diversity.
The use of lighting systems in sauna design
Recently, in the design projects of saunas, it is increasingly common to use not just built-in lamps or lamps, but a whole ensemble of lights of various shapes and shades.
Despite the glass doors and the presence of lighting in the sauna room, the steam room is a rather dark place and additional lighting will not interfere with it.
Wooden platforms, sun loungers and seating are often illuminated.
With the help of LEDs, you can illuminate not only places for bath attendants, but also entire surfaces and individual structural elements.
The backlight can be of any color, everything is limited only by the preferences of the homeowners and their personal choice.
And finally, a few interesting images of saunas located in rooms with an original design.
