Sauna finishing


Sauna finishing

Building a sauna with your own hands is not an easy task. The same can be said about the interior decoration of this room. In order for your sauna to be both comfortable and safe, let’s learn how to competently finish it.

Sauna finishing materials

Most often, wood of various species is used for interior decoration of saunas. This is one of the best options, since natural wood does not heat up above 60 ° C, which minimizes the risk of burns, and its healing aroma has a beneficial effect on the body. The best options for decorating the sauna with wood are cedar and linden, oak and larch, alder or pine.

As for the wall decoration in the sauna, lining is also often used for this, and the walls near the stove and the stove itself are finished with non-combustible natural materials (such as jadeite or serpentinite).

Sauna Interior Finishing Process

All finishing work is carried out in this sequence.

  1. First comes the flooring. To do this, it is better to use not wood (it creates difficulties when drying the floor), but non-slip ceramic tiles. First, the foundation is laid for the furnace and the concrete base is poured under the tile. The main point at this stage is the need to equip the so-called pit, which is necessary to collect water, and the drain pipe extending from it.
  2. Then, using the appropriate heat-resistant adhesive, the tiles of your choice are laid and the seams are rubbed. Subsequently, wooden gratings are placed on the floor.

  3. Ceiling sheathing requires no less careful approach, because it is the ceiling in the sauna that experiences the maximum effect of heat. Here, ceiling beams made of moisture-resistant wood (for example, coniferous species), vapor and waterproofing film, and basalt insulation are used. From above, the ceiling can be sheathed with clapboard.
  4. The walls are also sheathed with clapboard — if you are familiar with this material, then there should be no problems with sheathing.
  5. The final stage of finishing the sauna is the installation of a door (wooden or glass) and the organization of lighting with the help of thermal and moisture-proof lamps.
