It's hard to believe that this space was once a dire and messy attic filled with boxes of old and unwanted possessions. Following a transformation over seen by the experts from Shulz Rooms. This attic can now be described as a luxurious personal retreat for its owners. Filled to the brim with luxurious features including a natural stone shower, fireplace, and the spacious sauna at the rear. This transformation proves that any space, no matter how awkward, can be reworked to suit a new purpose.
Light and open would best describe this sauna and showering room. Transparent glass has been utilised to give the impression of a clear and uninterrupted space. Transitioning between spaces is fluid between the shower and sauna areas. Perhaps the most outstanding element of this space is the green mosaic tiles of the shower facilities which offer a distinct look.
Lets take a closer look inside this fantastic sauna set up from BluMaxx. The open and spacious sauna has enough room for many to sit or lie-down within. We especially love the timber used in this sauna—it has an almost tangible warm glow to it.
This enclosed room looks identical to the other saunas shown previously, but there is a difference. This is in fact a steam room, so there are considerable differences. Steam rooms work similarly to saunas with the difference being the difference in temperature and humidity levels. Overall, steam rooms create a more wet environment compared to the traditional sauna room which gives user a different sensation and benefits to regular saunas.
There's a strangely inviting appeal to this sauna. Perhaps it has something to do with the dark and dingy atmosphere created by the dominant black stain used on the wood. It really is minimalist design at its best with no unnecessary details or finishes. Just a space that can easily induce relaxation and focus.
