How would you tag a shop that sells various sauna equipment? Shop in question sells stoves, building materials, doors, small accessories and also provides builders/consultations.

I found shop=swimming_pool which according to wiki:

"

A store that sells swimming pool equipment and supplies.

Might also sell different types of pools, saunas or hot tubs as well as provide installation and maintenance.

"

Seems to fit the most from what I could find but this place does not deal in pools at all from what I can see so maybe there is a better tag?

In addition are 15 items tagged shop=sauna, 3 shop=hottub and 8 shop=hot_tub. See https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=hot_tub#values for more. I think the key thing is if such specialist shops are relatively common (say one per town) in your area they probably merit a separate tag.

Saw shop=sauna, but it had almost no use (most hits seem to be in Germany according to overpass - https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/11Y6) and it did not have wiki so disregarded that tag. Perhaps I should still use it? Till now I only used tags that had wiki entry because that seemed more "official". I don't think such shops are common, after a quick search I could find only 2 more in capital city.

@Qeris You also need to check the usage. Some may be mistakened for leisure=sauna. I found 1 https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/shop=sauna_supply instance. Examples including =brewing_supplies, =hairdresser_supply, and =fashion_accessories exist to disambiguate, or avoid conflict with another value. There are also untidied values of https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/shop=swimming_pool,hot_tub,_sauna_store and https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/shop=Home_Wellness,_bubbelbaden&_sauna's.

You can use tags that aren't in the wiki, there's just no guarantee anyone will know what you mean. As shop=sauna seems to be in use and is fairly unambiguous you could probably just document the existing tag as 'in use' in the wiki and use it without going through a proposal process. It's niche, but your addition would push it above shop=robot.
