Buying guide: Home Saunas
The average sauna installation costs between $3,000 and $6,000. On average, you'll spend about $4,500. Size and material costs play the biggest roles in what you'll pay. Labor costs usually account for between $700 and $3,000 of the total price.
There are four diverse types of saunas: traditional Finnish sauna, dry sauna, steam bath (also known as a Turkish bath), and an infrared sauna. Each experience varies from one type of sauna to the next.
The Right Size for a Sauna
Typical room sizes are from 4 by 4 feet to 8 by 12 feet. When planning a sauna's size, figure you'll need at least 2 feet of bench space for each bather; ideally, bathers should be able to recline, so, if possible, allow 6 feet in one direction.
