How to Choose the Best Sauna for Your Basement

When it comes to choosing the perfect basement sauna kit, there are a few key factors to consider. Here are some things to keep in mind when selecting a sauna for your basement:

Type of Sauna

There are several types of sauna kits available, including traditional steam saunas and infrared saunas. Each type of sauna offers its own set of benefits and features. For basement saunas, we recommend infrared saunas due to the lack of humidity created by the units.

Traditional steam saunas are known for their high humidity and high temperatures, which can promote relaxation and detoxification. Infrared saunas, on the other hand, use infrared heat to warm the body directly, which can be more comfortable for some people.

Size and Capacity

The size and capacity of the sauna you choose will depend on the size of your basement and how many people will be using the sauna at once. If you plan to use the sauna with your partner or family, you may want to opt for a larger model that can accommodate multiple people at once.

Heating System

The heating system is a crucial component of any sauna. Make sure you choose a sauna with a high-quality heating system that can reach and maintain the desired temperature. Traditional steam saunas require a wood-fired or electric heater, while infrared saunas typically have their own heating elements built in.


The material used to construct the sauna can also make a big difference in the overall quality and experience. Look for saunas made with high-quality, durable materials that can withstand the high temperatures and humidity of the sauna environment. Common materials used for saunas include wood, ceramic, and glass.


Saunas can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars depending on the size, features, and type of sauna. Set a budget for your sauna and stick to it, while also keeping in mind the long-term benefits and investment in your health and wellness.

How to Create the Perfect Space for Your Basement Sauna

Here’s how to create a basement sauna that you’ll love:

Choose the right location

Before you start building your sauna, you need to choose the right location in your basement. Look for a spot that’s away from any water sources or pipes, and that’s easy to access. You’ll also want to make sure that the area is well-ventilated and can accommodate the size of the sauna you’re planning to build.

Choose the right sauna

There are many different types of saunas available, each with its own set of benefits and features. Some of the most common types of saunas include traditional steam saunas and infrared saunas. Consider your budget, space, and personal preferences when choosing the right sauna for your basement. For our customers, we recommend infrared saunas for the basement due to price and the lack of humidity.

Prepare the space

Once you’ve chosen your sauna, it’s time to prepare the space. Clear out any clutter or debris, and make sure the area is clean and dry. You’ll also need to install proper ventilation and insulation to ensure that the sauna stays at a comfortable temperature.

Install the sauna

With the space prepared, it’s time to install the sauna. Our saunas all come in modular designs, so they can be put together with two people in less than an hour.. Infrared saunas typically don’t require a separate heater, but they do need to be plugged into an electrical outlet.

Add the finishing touches

Once your sauna is installed, it’s time to add the finishing touches. You may want to install backrests, add lighting, or even decorate the space with plants or artwork. Make the space your own and create a relaxing atmosphere that you’ll love.


In conclusion, a basement sauna is a great way to transform your home into a private oasis where you can relax and rejuvenate. As stated in the article, our favorite basement sauna is the Dynamic Barcelona Infrared sauna.

With the simple steps outlined above, you can create a sauna in your basement that you’ll love. So why wait? Start planning your basement sauna today!
