The perfect way to relax at any time of year, and at any time of day, a hot tub is flawlessly matched to events, family fun, parties or just an intimate soak for two.
A haven of relaxation and the pinnacle of affluent luxury, the hot tub doesn’t need to be a complicated thing. With just a few considered decisions you could be warm, cosy and in the midst of tranquil bliss, sipping on prosecco in the evening sun in no time.
One in ten people are already enjoying the backyard luxury of hot tubs, but how do you create the most luxurious hot tub experience in your garden?
Choose your area
The first item on the agenda is to decide where you want your hot tub to be placed. There are several factors to take into consideration before you make your final choice, and we’re here to help talk you through them.
Most likely the biggest consideration you need to make is where in your garden has the space to fit a hot tub. Hot tubs aren’t necessarily huge, and can come in a variety of sizes, but you’ll need to ensure that the area you choose has enough space to house the hot tub, stairs, decking and the paving underneath.
Placing your hot tub in the optimal spot to enjoy the best views of your garden is something you’ll certainly need to think about.
Most people place their hot tubs close to the back doors to their home, and for good reason. Hot tubs can be enjoyed at any time of the year, but colder weather could mean decreased levels of comfort if you have to walk through your garden to get back into the warmth of your home after you exit the hot tub.
Low fences, walls and overlooking two-storey houses can all take away a bit of the privacy you want when you’re in your hot tub, and privacy is what you require when making the best of the experience. You need to be able to cut off the outside world and simply relax in the lap of luxury and bubbling tranquillity. Place gazebos or other structures over your hot tub to maximise privacy or choose an area least likely to be overlooked by neighbours.
Picking the right hot tub
It’s important that you choose the right hot tub to meet your needs. With so many shapes, sizes and styles available, you’ll need to consider how many people you’d like to be able to fit in it and what style or shape of hot tub you’d like.
Do your research on the different kinds of hot tubs and consider lighting and jets before you make your purchase.
Designing the area
You can’t just simply put a hot tub down, get in and be whisked off to blissful relaxation, you need to design the area first, and the most important thing to consider is the decking. The decking around your new hot tub needs to be slip-resistant and match the luxury feel of your garden and lifestyle.
Choose from in-ground hot tubs that are placed within decking, spiral decking that act as stairs or a simpler design. Go for the tub, decking and decoration that best complements your garden space and individual style.
You need to be able to see what you’re doing when you take an evening or night-time dip in your hot tub or spa pool, so now it’s time to choose the perfect lighting. You can opt for warm white lights, coloured lights, fairy lights and even lantern style lights that dangle from the skies.
Whether you want to create a fairy-tale wonderland of warmth and luxury, a fun and inclusive environment or a sleek, modern look – it’s all in the lighting.
From lighting and decking to the perfect plants and accessories and the best hot tub for you, all the choices you make lead to the relaxing environment you’ve been dreaming of. Indulge yourself and go the extra mile with your very own fully designed and wonderfully thought out hot tub. Relax, wow your friends and spend quality time with loved ones as you soothe aches, pains and the stresses of everyday life.
