What You Need to Know in Sauna Construction
The first point you should pay attention to when starting the sauna production is the heater selection, which forms the heart of the sauna. The choice of heater to be chosen in accordance with the sauna room to be created and the heating control methods related to it will greatly affect the relaxing and relaxing experience you will receive. The heat ranges of the sauna and the quality of the heating stones are among the design decisions that you should pay attention to when creating your design.
One of the most important criteria is to determine the place where the sauna will be installed. The minimum ceiling height given for a sauna design in Turkey and abroad is 195 cm. If there is no special design request, saunas usually have a ceiling height of 210-240 cm.
One of the most important choices in sauna design is the choice of wood for the seating area and walls. Cedar, pine, fir, spruce and ayous trees are generally preferred in sauna designs in Turkey. According to the design you want in the interior and the cost of the sauna you plan, Sauna Dekor will guide you with its professional team and help you choose the right tree type.
Glass is generally preferred for the sauna door . Choosing a stylish, aesthetic and durable glass door that will adapt to your design provides many years of use as it is resistant to high temperature levels, wet and dry steam fluctuations.

Some features should be considered when choosing the recommended heating stones for electric heaters. The heating stones to be selected should be resistant to high temperatures and heat fluctuations that will occur in the sauna. It should not form dust and should not emit odors. It is desirable that the heating stones hold the water and do not drip the water and must have the ability to give the sauna sufficient heat.
Stages of Sauna Manufacturing
In order to add the relaxing effect of the sauna to your living spaces, the most important and first step of your sauna manufacturing decision is to correctly determine the area where the sauna will be installed. If it will be located in a house or project, a place where plumbing, heating and electricity can be easily reached should be chosen. For a sauna to be designed outdoors, the location of the sauna should be determined so that the area sits on level ground, away from overhanging trees and running water.
If the area where the sauna will be installed is technically and physically suitable, such as its size and distance to the mechanical installations, the sauna design desired by the user should be started. In which style the sauna room should be made, which type of wood should be preferred, the cost of the materials to be chosen, etc. all this should be determined at this stage according to the imagined design. After the sauna design, the application process is carried out professionally by the Sauna Dekor Spa & Solutions installation team in your home or in the appropriate area of your project.
It is recommended that sauna construction be done by professional and expert teams. Individual sauna construction is also very common in the country and abroad. You can use the following information about sauna construction to bring the tranquility of the sauna to your living spaces:
- Choose the right place for your sauna. When determining the location of your sauna, do not forget its features (minimum dimensions, proximity to technical systems, flat floor, etc.).
- Lay the woods that make up the inner frame of the sauna according to standard framing codes. Make sure the stud areas are at each corner. For correct and good ventilation indoors, leave 3 ventilation points according to your door position, heater type and seating arrangement. Determine the area for the seating areas and window areas that you want to create in the design.
- Insulate your sauna’s frame and ceiling. Although the insulation material is not very important, it is recommended to insulate the inner frame with fiberglass. To keep moisture away from the fiberglass and use your sauna longer, you should add a vapor barrier.
- Cover the interior with wooden woods that are compatible with your design and that you want to see in your space. Remember to leave space in the ventilation holes. In the meantime, you can make arrangements for lighting elements and technical cables suitable for your design in decoration.
- Create your sitting areas in the sauna.
