Bath finishing is a whole complex of works. Indeed, in addition to external, there is also internal.

Imitation of pine timber
Wood and tile finishing It is best to choose natural wood as a finishing material. The easiest way to create an attractive interior without the involvement of experts - lining up clapboard yourself. However, you can use the board.
If there is not enough money for high-quality expensive materials, then many owners choose pine wood in all the premises of this building, including the steam room. This is not the best choice because the material often contains a lot of resin.
Standing out from special resinous pockets, pine resin can get on the skin and cause burns. In addition, the resin may evaporate, which is detrimental to health.
As a last resort, if there is no choice, it is necessary to monitor the quality of the boards. Check for the presence of resin pockets required.
If there are available funds, then it is better to choose the wood of such trees as linden and larch in the steam room and the washing room. Lipa will always have a pristine appearance, it will not darken or crack. This material is good for health. Larch is resistant to fungi and mold, it does not rot and lasts a very long time. In the waiting room, you can do the upholstery of pine and other, cheaper materials.
If the funds allow, then you can use an abashi tree in the steam room.
The internal lining of the bath
It has a general structure:
Tile floor in the bath
The floor is trimmed with a board or tiles. Tile is better to choose a special, not slippery. Otherwise, sooner or later you can get injured, steaming in the bath. The tile is durable, and this is its main advantage. You can also use tiles for walls.
To prevent slipping on the tile, you can install a special wooden structure on the floor - a bridge. Moving on it, you can expect that no trouble will happen.
Larch is another good material for the floor. It is not subject to rotting, therefore, in its strength and durability, it can compete with tiles. The only negative is the high cost of such material.
Finishing of the floor is made after its insulation. It is necessary to warm all surfaces of a sweating room. If the floor is concrete, the insulation is laid between the layers of concrete. As a heat insulating material, claydite, crushed stone, as well as empty bottles can be used.
