Saunas don’t only exist in spas–there are many cases to be made for having one in your own home. This modern take on an ancient tradition can transform your yard into a year-round oasis of your own. They can also improve your health. Saunas are proven to promote pain relief and relaxation.

Yardzen is no stranger to designing around outdoor saunas. Over the past year, as people have forgone trips to the spa, we’ve seen a sharp increase in requests for this added luxury.

If you’re dreaming of a backyard sauna of your own, here are our favorite options. Plus, a couple inspiration photos from Yardzen designs!



01 The Cedar Barrel

If you’re focused on looks – this Cedar Barrel design from Redwood Outdoors is the perfect fit for you. This is a traditional Scandinavian design, an interlocking system that allows the wood to ‘breathe’ – contracting and expanding as need be. 



02 The Luxury Option

Looking for something splurge-worthy? Check out the Luna Outdoor Sauna. It’s almost completely customizable – choose your exterior wood type, interior seating arrangement and design, and you can even opt for upgrades like lounge seating or an added porch.



03 The Compact Design

In the event you’re lacking a ton of extra space, your best bet for a compact design is this 3-person design available at Home Depot. Made from natural Canadian hemlock wood, it’s durable and attractive – a welcome addition to yards of any size.
