Luxury Home Spa & Wellness Rooms, And Everything You Need To Create It

Your home is where you feel most comfortable, right? Or was it something like home is where the heart is?

Well, whichever way you look at it, we think that your home is where you should be at your most relaxed. Now, there are plenty of ways that you can blow off some steam after a long day. But if you were able to choose anything, walking into a spa would be the best fit.

Scroll down for a full run-down of spa-centered essentials for your home!

Importance of Relaxation and Wellness

Why do we need a spa day every once in a while? Not only that,  but what is it that we can benefit from at the spa center for instance? 

Lots of questions, right.

Well, the first and main word that pops into mind is – relaxation. The phrase self-care is thrown around a lot these days; but it’s much more important than you might think!

You see, stress is pretty much the main culprit in a lot of health issues these days. Overworking yourself, not sleeping enough, not listening to what your body is waiting for — well, it creates a serious imbalance in your system. 

Well, that’s where things like a massage and a sauna come in handy.

Even a good bath can do wonders for your wellbeing! Relaxing your body completely in such a way is almost therapeutic. Not almost, it is pretty much therapy for your body, and we think that it’s clear that we all need a few such sessions!

What Are The Benefits Of Home Spa & Wellness Rooms

Okay, so with all that said – why saunas? Is it enough to draw up some water after a long day and bathe your problems away? Well, it’s a good start, but it’s far from the same thing.

You see, there are a lot of benefits to spending some time in the sauna. Even sweating does wonders to soothe your mind and body!

Let’s go over some of them quickly:

Reducing Stress

There are many theories as to why spending time in a sauna can reduce your stress levels.

But the most agreed upon is that the heat from the sauna helps your body release endorphins. It’s not that you don’t generally produce endorphins, sure. But you can see why you would want more of something nicknamed the happy hormone.


Your body has many ways of expelling toxins from itself. But sweating is one of the best tricks it has up its sleeve! Your skin is a detoxification organ among other things. So an hour in a steamy room helps kick-start that process and gets rid of a lot of toxins and heavy metals you may have stored up! 

Improving Sleep Quality

All of the benefits that a sauna room gives you work together to get you the best gift of all – a good night’s sleep.

The combination of reduced stress, higher endorphin levels, and muscle relaxation ensures that you go into a deep sleep. These make you feel properly rested in the morning! Insomnia is often caused by stress, which is why a lot of people resolve it with some sauna experience!  

And let’s get something straight, that’s not even half of it. Pain relief, improved circulation, and heart health – the list of wellness benefits goes on! 

Here, at Design on a Dime, we are not just about design – we care for your health, and that’s why, in one call, we can discuss the importance of including a wellness room in your room.

Planning Out Your Home Spa Sanctuary

The thing about a spa in your house is that you won’t have every single aspect of a wellness spa in there.

So let’s get focused, and see what it is that you need.

Assessing Available Space and Budget

First thing first – where will your relaxation room be?

You need to figure out the perfect location in order to calculate your budget. Things like water and electrical access are important factors, so you need to plan everything out so you don’t run into any hiccups along the way. 

Design Inspiration for a Luxurious Spa Or Sauna Room

Are you looking for a lot of light? Maybe you want panoramic views of the rocky mountains while you relax. Besides that, what materials would you be using?

Let’s go over the popular options:

Keeping It Natural

Materials like stone and different types of wood will give you a natural tranquility that you may not get from a modern design. But keep in mind that you are the homeowner here, so your personal taste matters more than anything.

Modern And Bright Relaxation

Maybe you want to go for a modern design instead? An all-glass option gives you a bright airy room that comes with a touch of elegance.

Small And Cozy Or Opened Space

Do you prefer a small and cozy room for your personal relaxation time? Or do you prefer spending the time with the people you love?

Different Spa Elements

You need to create the perfect space for you. 

So you can try adding different elements of a spa experience to your home. Get some Himalayan salt and do research on the benefits of salt therapy. Maybe add extra space to put down a yoga mat. 

Choosing the Perfect Sauna Design

So what are the saunas you can consider? Well, there are a few types, some traditional, some modern. Let’s go over them now:

Traditional Saunas

A few of the traditional design options for our home sauna are barrel or cabin options. As before, the style of your home and your personal preference is the key here! The main decision is whether you want to create a separate new space or incorporate it into your home. 

If you’re going for a traditional aesthetic, natural materials are the go-to. Softwoods like cedarwood, aspen, hemlock, or spruce. 

Modern Design Saunas

If you’re more interested in the ways of the future than the traditional options, there are a few options to consider.

These saunas use the same heat principles, just different heat sources. Instead of using wood or steam to get your body to a high temperature, you use infrared heat. The benefit here is that this type of heat penetrates deeper into your skin, which means you’re getting the same benefits at a higher level!

Portable Sauna Room

Let’s say that you want a dedicated spa room, with a separate space for your sauna. Maybe you want some space for a little aromatherapy, a spot for your skincare and cosmetic needs – just a general collection of spa products and activities.

Can you have all that and a separate sauna without breaking the budget or building a separate space?

Of course! Portable wood-fired saunas are a newer option that doesn’t rely on electrical heat, nor do they need a lot of space. They are easy to install, customizable, and perfect for smaller spaces!

Final Thoughts

You deserve an upscale space in your own home that can give you the serenity that you’ve been looking for all this time.

And with a few simple steps, and some well-thought-out planning, you can do just that!
