Paneling tips: Western Red Cedar Sauna Wood boards are most commonly installed vertically for a seamless look and less waste, as most common board length is 8' length. Some people prefer the horizontal look of sauna woods, which usually costs more as there is more waste. For example a 5' wide x 7' high wall paneled vertically would only have about 1' of waste on each board. This wall paneled horizontally would have almost 3' of waste. Most of our paneling woods are available in several lengths for minimal waste on-site installing the sauna kit.
