The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right Size Sauna for Your Home

Saunas have been used for centuries to promote relaxation and improve overall health. Regular sauna use can help to improve your immune system, reduce stress, and even aid in weight loss. However, when it comes to purchasing a sauna for your home, it can be overwhelming to choose the right size that will fit your needs and space. In this guide, we will go over the different sizes of saunas available, the benefits of each size, and how to choose the perfect size for your home.

When it comes to sauna sizes, the most common options are 2-person, 3-person, 4-person, and 6-person saunas. Each size has its own unique benefits, so it's important to consider what you're looking for in a sauna before making a decision.

2-Person Saunas

2-person saunas are the most compact and space-saving option for a home sauna. They are perfect for individuals or couples who are looking for a personal sauna experience in the comfort of their own home. Their smaller size makes them a great option for those who have limited space in their home and can't accommodate a larger sauna.

A 2-person sauna is also a great option for those who are new to sauna use as the smaller size and more affordable price point make it a great way to try out a sauna without committing to a larger and more expensive model.

One of the main benefits of a 2-person sauna is the intimate space that it creates. This can be great for couples that want to spend quality time together, or it creates a safe and cozy place for an individual to unwind and relax after a long day at work or a tough workout.

The smaller size of a 2-person sauna also makes it easy to heat up quickly and maintain a consistent temperature, making it more energy efficient. This can be helpful for those on a budget or that intend to use it multiple times a day.


3-Person Saunas

One of the main benefits of a 3-person sauna is the extra space it provides allowing for more people to fit comfortably. This is a great way for small families or groups of friends to spend quality time together and bond in a relaxing setting, or even just extra room for a couple.

Another benefit of a 3-person sauna is that it's more versatile than a 2-person sauna. The extra space allows for more customization and the ability to add more features for those who are looking for a more luxurious and personalized sauna experience.

Additionally, a 3-person sauna also offers more options when it comes to the design and layout. It allows for more flexibility in terms of the layout and positioning of the benches, which can be accommodate different body types and sizes.

4-Person Saunas

4-person saunas are similar to the 3-person model but just with more room. This of course means more people can join in a sauna experience, or just allow more space for one to really stretch out relax. For individuals looking for the option to fully laydown when enjoying their sauna experience, a 4-person model would be minimum size that would offer enough space.

Additionally for those that are looking to do some form of exercise in their sauna, like stretching or yoga, then 4-perons is the first model to really offer enough space for that to be possible. Although the movements would still be limited.

Typically, 4-person saunas tend to have larger and more advanced heating systems, which allows for a more even distribution of heat for your sauna experience. Despite the larger size these larger heating units can warm up a 4-person sauna rather quickly.

Going with a sauna of this size is naturally going to have a higher purchase price and take up more space, but if you can accommodate those factures then this could be ideal size for you.

6-Person Saunas

6-person saunas are obviously the largest option. All that additional space allows for all of the same sauna benefits, just more of them. The extra space, and typically multiple seating options, make it great for using with a group, or several individuals that are using the sauna on different schedules, coming in and out as needed.

This size would be ideal for those looking to do yoga or exercise in the space. There are many different layouts available and you could select on that allowed more seating options, or more space for exercise.

Often these saunas are purchased for commercial use or in a training facility, but we have found for those customers that have budget and room for size sauna thoroughly enjoy all the extra space.


When it comes to choosing the right size sauna for your home, it's important to consider the size of your space and the number of people who will be using the sauna. If you live alone or with a partner, a 2-person sauna may be the perfect fit. If you have a small family or a group of friends, a 3- or 4-person sauna may be a better option. And if you have a large family or a group of friends, a 6-person sauna may be the best fit.

It's also important to consider the size of your budget. Larger saunas will generally be more expensive than smaller saunas, so it's important to choose a size that fits within your budget.
