What should you think about when choosing a home sauna?


More and more people around the UK are seeking the authentic sauna experience at home, for various health and wellbeing reasons. If you’re considering installing a sauna in your home, here are a few points to consider.

  1. Space – Where will you install your sauna?

You may think you don’t have space for a sauna in your home –think again! The KLAFS S1 Sauna from Guncast is the world’s first retractable sauna. Much like a camera’s zoom lens, the KLAFS S1 Sauna expands from a svelte 60 cm (about the depth of an average closet) to a spacious and relaxing 1.60 m depth, at the touch of a button. It could easily fit in your bedroom, living room, or home office to suit your needs. The compact, bespoke design will fit stylishly in your home and with 24-hour sauna access, it is bound to become part of your daily selfcare routine.

  1. Style – How will it fit with your home interior?

Would you like your sauna to discreetly blend into its surroundings, or to stand out against your home décor? You can choose a bespoke KLAFS S1 Sauna design from Guncast to suit your home and taste. Then it’s up to you whether you have it extended, or retracted to changed the look of your room when you’re no using it.

  1. Can you take the sauna with you?

If you tend to move around a lot from one property to another, the good news is that you can take your KLAFS S1 sauna with you! Its compact, bespoke design means it can not only fit in most spaces, and with most styles of décor, it can also be transported from one property to another. A truly long-term investment in your health wellbeing, and lifestyle, the KLAFS S1 can stay with you from one home to the next, for consistency and convenience. You never have to give up your therapeutic, relaxing saunas. Simply have it transported and ask for a trained KLAFS engineer from Guncast for installation support.

  1. What about the running and maintenance requirements?

If you’re concerned about energy use required for a home sauna, in terms of carbon footprint and costs, both are probably lower than you think! The KLAFS S1 sauna, which runs on electricity, is relatively inexpensive and low impact to run. Talk to us to find out more. The KLAFS S1 Sauna is also designed to be low maintenance. Guncast service engineers recommend maintenance checks only every 6 months to a year, in order to continue enjoying your sauna for years to come.

  1. How will you benefit from your sauna?

While a sauna can be an indulgent way to pamper yourself, it also has therapeutic health benefits. Heat therapy can help to relieve certain symptoms, such as muscle tension, back pain, and stress at the end of a long day, while regular sauna use can help to boost the immune system to fight viruses and even relieve hay fever symptoms.
