A barrel sauna is a popular and unique choice for sauna enthusiasts all over the world, offering a compact and aesthetically pleasing design that stands out from traditional square-shaped saunas. The barrel is a classic design to make your sauna compact and distribute the heat evenly throughout the room. Heat rises in all rooms and the curves on the barrel do a great job of pushing the heat back down into the room. Because of the classic and in some ways, older design, there are great ways to improve the traditional barrel sauna experience. To enhance your barrel sauna experience and make the most of your relaxation sessions, investing in the right barrel sauna accessories and components is essential. These accessories not only add convenience but also elevate the overall ambiance and functionality of your sauna. In this post, we will explore some must-have barrel sauna accessories that can help create a truly blissful sauna experience.
1. Barrel Sauna Heat Shield: Enhance the longevity of your beloved barrel sauna while optimizing its heat distribution with our innovative Barrel Sauna Heat Shield. Specifically designed to meet the needs of barrel sauna owners, this patent-pending product revolutionizes the sauna experience by protecting the wood and radiating heat evenly throughout the sauna room.
2. Bucket and Ladle Set: A classic bucket and ladle set are indispensable barrel sauna components. They serve both functional and aesthetic purposes, allowing you to pour water over hot sauna rocks, creating steam and increasing the humidity inside the sauna, while also adding a rustic touch to the sauna's interior. Almost Heaven has a few great options on classic and modern looking kits.
3. Thermometer and Hygrometer: Monitoring the temperature and humidity levels inside your barrel sauna is crucial for a safe and comfortable experience. A dedicated thermometer and hygrometer ensure that you can easily keep track of the conditions and adjust them to your liking.
4. Sauna Lighting: Enhance the ambiance of your barrel sauna with appropriate lighting. LED strip lights, wall sconces, or even a simple lantern can create a soothing atmosphere, making your sauna sessions more enjoyable, especially during evenings or darker days. Steam Sauna Bath has a few great options for lighting in barrels and all types of saunas.
5. Backrests and Benches: Comfort is key during sauna sessions, and ergonomically designed backrests and benches provide the necessary support to relax and unwind. Look for high-quality, heat-resistant materials that complement the barrel sauna's interior.
6. Sauna Flooring: Protect the floor of your barrel sauna with suitable flooring. Wooden duckboard or interlocking tiles are excellent options that can withstand the heat and moisture, ensuring a safe and clean surface inside the sauna.
7. Headrests: Make your sauna experience even more relaxing with soft and comfortable headrests. These are designed to provide neck support, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the soothing heat.
8. Essential Oil Dispenser: Elevate the sauna atmosphere by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oils. An essential oil dispenser that can be placed on the sauna stove or rocks will disperse pleasant fragrances as you relax.
9. Towel Hooks and Hangers: Keep your towels and robes within easy reach by installing towel hooks or hangers inside your barrel sauna. This ensures a tidy and organized space while maximizing your comfort.
10. Sauna Cleaning Supplies: To maintain a clean and hygienic sauna environment, invest in sauna-specific cleaning supplies like brushes, non-toxic cleaners, and sauna stones. Regular cleaning and maintenance will prolong the life of your sauna and its components. Steam Sauna Bath has most of these great accessories and can serve as your one-stop shop for all bathing supplies.
