You can’t deny, this bathroom looks like a perfect Tetris. Architecture goes hand in hand with interior design and furniture. The log walls and ceiling interfere in a graceful manner with the sauna, thus creating an alluring setting.

Considering that it is recommended to take a hot shower before entering the sauna (so that your body will get used with a higher temperature), we consider that a shower/sauna combo will be a good choice. It’s a great way of saving space, and you won’t have to get out of the shower, change temperature, and then get into the sauna and change temperature again. Check out the window. Cute idea, isn’t it?

How about a hidden sauna? We all need some privacy from time to time. The rustic wood beam creates architectural interest and it reminds us that there is a glass shower wall behind. Just in case you missed it…

When you decide to have your own sauna, carefully choose the type of wood to use. It’s advisable to use spruce or pine, so that heat won’t pass so easily though them.

Light is also a very important factor that will help you to create the soothing environment you need. Use pot lights in various parts of the sauna or add LED strip lighting around the perimeter of the sauna.
