Step 2: Exterior design of your sauna room
At this point you will be ready to move on to the exterior design of your sauna. This will cover an extensive array of building components such as wood type, glass tinting, soffit installation, trim and frames.

Choosing between horizontal or vertical wood panelling can be a difficult choice for some people. This where you make that decision.
Next up is the choice of wood panelling for your sauna. Different woods can offer a remarkable different sauna experience. Hard woods such as usually have a deeper aroma, darker colour and are more expensive. Softer woods such as Alder, Aspen or Spruce are less expensive and lighter in colour. Consequently, TyloHelo offer a compromise in the Thermo treated Aspen.
For inside we’ve chosen the same Aspen panelling purely for aesthetic purposes.
If as we’ve done you choose for a glass front sauna you can also choose which glass you have. This is the same if you just choose to have a simple glass door. Choices are clear, bronze tinted or frosted glass. All glass is tempered safety glass as standard.
Whilst not as widely used as it once was, the soffit can also be used to house downlights. As a result it is still widely used for outdoor saunas.
Material ceiling outside
In the whole it’s rare that anyone will be admiring the external ceiling of your newly designed sauna. Consequently you can cut a few corners here and go for a cheaper wood such as Spruce if you’ve used a hard wood elsewhere.
Material ceiling inside
For inside we will again go with Aspen which we’ve used everywhere else to maintain the aesthetic.
Wood type trim outside
For wood trim your previous choices will usually dictate what you choose here. You can of course experiment with the sauna design before settling on your final choice.
Wood type trim inside
For inside trim we will choose the same as outside.
For the floor frame we’ve chosen the basic option.
