Our most popular option is by far the barrel sauna. However, each shape has its own unique advantages and characteristics.

Let's explore the differences between these two shapes and consider other shapes as well, to help you make an informed decision when choosing the perfect sauna for your needs.

[add Top Products Table w 2 x barrel and 1 x square]

Barrel Saunas

This shape has been used for centuries in traditional saunas due to its excellent heat distribution and efficient use of materials. Here are some key benefits of barrel saunas:

Heat Distribution

The rounded shape of barrel saunas promotes better air circulation. The heat generated by the sauna stove circulates evenly throughout the barrel sauna, providing a consistent temperature. This ensures a more comfortable and enjoyable sauna experience.

Energy Efficiency

Barrel saunas are known for their energy efficiency. The barrel sauna heats up faster as the curved walls minimize heat loss, allowing the barrel sauna to heat up quickly and maintain a consistent temperature with less energy consumption. This ultimately saves you money on your energy bill.

Aesthetics

Barrel saunas have a unique and eye-catching design that adds a touch of rustic charm to any setting. The curved walls and traditional wooden construction of the barrel-shaped sauna create a cozy and inviting atmosphere both inside and outside the sauna. They are the classic choice for sauna lovers who prefer traditional sauna designs.

Square Saunas

Square saunas and cabin-style saunas offer their own set of advantages over barrel saunas.

Space Efficiency

Square saunas are known for their space efficiency. The straight walls and corners allow for efficient use of space, making them ideal for small yards or tight spaces. If you have limited room, a traditional square sauna might be the better option for you.

Design Flexibility

Square saunas offer more design flexibility than barrel saunas. The flat walls allow for easier customization and installation of features such as windows, doors, benches, and additional accessories. This makes it easier to create a personalized sauna experience tailored to your preferences.

Modern Look

Square saunas are often associated with a more contemporary and modern aesthetic. If you prefer clean lines and a minimalist design, a square sauna might be the better choice for you.

Other Shapes

While barrel and square saunas are the most common options, there are other shapes available as well. Some popular alternatives include octagonal, hexagonal, and round-shaped saunas. These shapes combine elements of both barrel and square saunas and offer their own unique benefits.

For example, octagonal and hexagonal saunas provide a compromise between the curved walls of a barrel sauna and the angular design of a square sauna. They offer energy efficient heat distribution and efficient use of space while adding a distinctive visual appeal.

Round saunas, on the other hand, provide a unique and unconventional sauna experience. The absence of corners creates a different feel inside the sauna, and the round shape allows for an even heat distribution similar to barrel saunas.

Cabin saunas or cabin-shaped saunas stand out for their generous space and traditional sauna aesthetic. 

Ultimately, the choice between barrel, square, or other-shaped saunas depends on your personal preferences, available space, and desired aesthetic. Consider factors such as heat distribution, energy efficiency, design flexibility, and space requirements to determine the best option for your needs.

Other Considerations

Regardless of the shape of the sauna you choose, there are other factors that can affect the sauna experience. 

Insulation

For an indoor sauna, proper insulation may not be an issue, but the same cannot be said for an outdoor barrel sauna. An outdoor sauna, especially a barrel sauna, does not have insulation. Externally insulating a barrel sauna would improve its heat retention but would negatively affect its visual appeal.

An outdoor barrel sauna may look great, but intense temperature fluctuations may make its use a bit challenging. Outdoor barrel models are built to accomodate the natural expansion of the wood, and the air flow may be great while one is inside, but imagine having to trek all the way outside when it’s snowing just to enjoy the sauna.

In Short

Outdoor barrel saunas have their advantages, including:

  • No foundation required
  • Quick heating time
  • Even heat distribution
  • Cost-effective and minimal materials
  • Easy to transport and assemble
  • Natural ventilation and snow-load handling

However, there are some disadvantages to consider:

  • Limited insulation
  • Exposure to the elements
  • Potential leaks without additional roofing
  • Heat loss when the door opens
  • Possible issue of cold feet

Whichever shape you choose, investing in a steam sauna provides numerous health benefits, including relaxation, stress relief, improved circulation, and detoxification, not to mention the mental health benefits. 

So, get ready to enjoy the soothing warmth and rejuvenating experience of a sauna, regardless of the shape you select.

Shipping Timeline

Taking Delivery of Your Product

Saunas & Sauna Kits

These products will ship LTL (Less-Than-Truckload) and will be delivered on a pallet. These shipments require a delivery appointment, which the last mile carrier will call to schedule with you.

You can add door-to-door service with the carrier – simply contact them when scheduling and say that you want to add door-to-door service. Door-to-door will be an additional charge, so make sure you ask the carrier what they charge for this service.

Here's what taking delivery of your sauna kit can look like:

Snow
Forest

Heaters & Stoves

These products will generally ship to your door, and do not require a delivery appointment, unless your shipment is very heavy (large stoves with a high stone capacity, for example).
