5 Of The Very Best Reasons To Get An Outdoor Sauna

When you're looking for a sauna, you're faced with two choices. You can get an outdoor sauna or build one indoors. Both are attractive in their own way. And there are some pretty compelling reasons to get an outdoor sauna.

In fact, with the rise of outdoor living – outdoor kitchens, patios with fire pits, and more – outdoor saunas may be more attractive than they've been in a long time.

Here are 5 stellar reasons to get an outdoor sauna for your own back yard.


Your sauna helps you escape from the house for a while. Many saunas are designed to take full advantage of the beauty of your yard – and the surrounding scenery.

They offer 5 different benefits:


There are many pre-fabricated sauna kits on the market now, with Finnleo offering some of the best. It's up to you to choose your size and type. That makes for exciting planning!

They're made with easy assembly in mind. All the parts you'll need will come with the kit, along with instructions detailing how to put the pieces together. For handy people, it can be quick and easy – and a great opportunity to make a party out of it with some friends.

Because you decided to get an outdoor sauna, you won't have a problem with venting. No need to cut a hole in your house! That helps make installation much simpler.


Larger outdoor saunas can also double as a pool house, cutting out the need for a separate building. And you'll get more use out of your investment! You'll never use a pool house in the winter – but sauna is wonderful in cold weather.

You'll also be able to extend pool season. With the heat of a sauna nearby, even cold weather is fun for a quick dip between sessions.


One of the benefits of an outdoor sauna is that you don't have to set aside a space inside your home. Many people don't have large master bedrooms or a bonus room that can easily become the sauna room. Outdoor saunas are perfect for smaller homes or large families.


Do you have curious children? A dog that simply must be on your lap every time you sit down? You'll gain more privacy in an outdoor sauna. A sauna placed near your master bath is still inside your house – and you'll hear everything that's going on around you.

Outdoor saunas provide a peaceful place to relax. "Time to myself" will take on a new, refreshing meaning.

This may be especially helpful for those who work from home. Associating "work" with your own home can be a drag on your emotional well-being. To detach, relax, and "come home" at the end of the work day, get an outdoor sauna.


Landscaping your own yard can be a beautiful pursuit. Now, imagine centering your outdoor efforts around the rustic charm of a sauna.

Outdoor saunas are probably the most attractive type of outdoor building. They're not just visual. They're sensory, as well. Most of us have relaxing associations with sauna, wherever we've experienced it.

Many home buyers are looking for that kind of emotionally appealing aspect. An outdoor sauna that is artfully integrated into your landscaping can add value to your property.

As another aspect of home improvement, it's easier to vent an outdoor sauna than its indoor siblings. Don't underrate that! Venting an indoor sauna involves cutting holes in walls, ceilings, or both.


For some, the indoor sauna is more attractive because of its proximity and convenience. For others, considering ease, purpose, space, privacy, and value, the outdoor sauna is a clear winner. For a meditative retreat and a change of pace, you may want to get an outdoor sauna.

No matter your sauna preference, you'll find it at The Great Backyard. Come on in to browse our many sauna options – indoor and outdoor alike. We'd love to answer your questions!
