A hot bath and fragrant whisk is the central and most favorite place in the country. Only here to ensure the given structure durability, it is necessary to properly handle the wood for the bath.

Compositions for bath treatment

You will need

  • - composition for wood processing;
  • - Brushes.



Usually a standard bath is built with tworooms: a steam room, combined with a washing room, and a rest room. The latter can be in a warm or cold version. Therefore, before choosing a formulation for treatment, you need to consider where the tool will be used: inside, outside, in a hot and humid room.


First of all, the carriersthe design of the bath and lag. For this, compositions that are called "Firebioschist" are perfect. They protect the wood from putrefactive fungi and mold, and also, if the sauna lights up, the treated support structures will only slowly smolder, and not ignite instantly.


For outdoor treatment, the baths are suitabledecorative and protective compounds for wood. An excellent solution is the choice in favor of "Tikkurila", "Aquatex", "Pinotex" or "Belinka". Before processing, it is necessary to primer the wooden surface with a primer antiseptic of the same firm as the finish coat. This method of treatment will help to preserve the appearance of the wood for a long time, prevent its damage, drying out.


To treat wood for a bath in a thermae orwashing, preference should be given to water-based formulations. After all, in these rooms, high humidity and high temperature. There are specialized varnishes and impregnations for internal treatment of the bath, which help prevent the appearance of mold, protect the tree from the effects of temperatures, do not release into the environment harmful to humans substances. Shelves in the thermae are treated with a special oil, which makes the tree elastic and gives it dirt and water repellent properties. If the natural color of the tree does not suit the consumer, then all varnishes and impregnations are colored in different colors right in the building store.


The simplest thing is the treatment of the rest room. If it is also heated, then for its painting water spray or impregnation, which were used in the steam room, will do. But if there are significant temperature differences in the rest room, then it should be painted with a decorative-protective compound, which was used outside the bath. To apply the impregnation it is necessary to stock up with brushes of mixed bristles.

Tip 2: Internal finishing of the bath with your own hands

Interior finishing is the last step inthe creation of a building designed to receive bath procedures. Finishing the bath does not only mean observing the canons of the canons, but also the proper selection of materials. Therefore, before you start working, you need to carefully study some of the nuances of finishing the bath from the inside.

Internal finishing of the bath with your own hands

The quality of finishing the bath with your own hands depends onthe correct choice of material. At the same time, it is not necessary to dwell on one type of wood, since the combination of several species of the tree is able to give the bath a special chic and cosiness.

Choose the finishing material for the bath

When choosing the finishing material is very importantto know the properties of a particular tree. Otherwise, staying in the sauna will bring one disappointment instead of pleasure. For a steam room, larch or linden is ideal, as these rocks do not overheat, which means they can not leave burns on the skin. Use pine in this case, it is undesirable, since when it is heated, it releases resin, which, when in contact with the skin of a person, causes discomfort. Coniferous rocks are ideal for finishing the dressing room, where the air temperature is much lower than the steam room. A healthy coniferous aroma will create ideal conditions for a healing effect. For washing, where the moisture level is at the maximum mark, it is best to use a spruce or pine lining, which is highly resistant to rot and moisture. In addition to the lining for finishing this room, you can use plasterboard, aquapanels, PVC panels, gypsum fiber and tile. As for the floor, then for its finishing is best to use oak. The difference of such a floor covering is that it does not slip and has a low heat capacity. And it, as is known, allows to exclude probability of reception of a burn at walking on such floor.
If you use ceramic tiles for finishing the floor, then it will be superfluous to lay wooden pallets against slipping.

Features of interior decoration of the bath

Lining is an ideal material forinternal finishing bath with their own hands. In addition, it can be used not only for wall finishing, but also for the ceiling. The technology of lining makes it possible to decorate the internal interior of a bath under a "log" or "cant." In addition, the walls, lined with lining, do not require additional processing, since this material is covered with protective compounds even at the production stage. Before proceeding to the lining of the bath structure from the inside, it is necessary to assemble the lath, on which the finishing material will be fixed in the future. Installation of the battens begins with the setting of the upper and lower bars. After that, with the help of a plumb or level to the wall, the intermediate elements of the crate are fixed.
The casing should provide a small gap between the lining attached to it and the vapor barrier layer.
For fixing the lining, it is desirable to useFasteners with high resistance to moisture. The best solution will be the use of staple clamps. In the corner joints, the lining can be cut in width. The installation of the parabarrier is carried out only in cases where the bath was built from materials that are not capable of providing normal microcirculation of the air. Therefore, for breathing walls, it is enough to finish the lining.
