Why You’ll Love Having a Backyard Hot Tub Installation
We’ve no doubt that you’ll love having a backyard hot tub of your own. A hot tub isn’t just a garden accessory. A hot tub is a lifestyle piece. Once your hot tub is installed, your garden will be instantly transformed into a relaxing haven, a family-friendly playground, and an entertainment hot-spot.
So, before we walk you through how to create your dream hot tub installation, let’s explore some of the things we think you’ll love most about having your very own hot tub.
Fun for the Entire Family
Hot tubs are fantastic for adults and kids alike. Your hot tub will become the perfect family meeting spot. So, get the kids away from those screens and have a soak instead. Hot tubs are a great place for conversations, family bonding, or simply just hanging out together. Young children can safely become acclimated to the water with parents close by, whilst older kids will love splishing and splashing about with their pals.
A hot tub is the perfect excuse to get friends together. So why not have a hot tub party? There’s so much you can do. Hang out and chat, pop the bubbly, create a hot tub-side movie experience, game day or…well… just about anything you can think of! Just make sure there are plenty of delicious snacks on offer.
Hot tubs are more than just glorified paddling pools. Our hot tubs are full on relaxation stations, complete with luxurious massage jets for total backyard bliss. After a long day, a soak in the tub will leave you feeling rejuvenated. The perfect self-care activity.
Amazing Health Benefits
Hot tubs aren’t just fun. They’re also great for your health. Some of the many health benefits associated with soaking in a hot tub include: stress relief, muscle relaxation, pain relief, and a better night’s sleep at the end of the day. You’ll even burn calories, boost your cardiovascular health in the process.
The Ideal Date
No-doubt, hot tubs make for great date nights. What could be more romantic than relaxing in a soothing hot tub with your loved one? Add a touch of aromatherapy and you’ve got yourself a romantic evening to remember. Whether you’re still in the honeymoon period, rekindling the flame, or simply chilling out with your better half, your hot tub will bring countless romantic memories.
How to Create Your Dream Hot Tub Installation
So, you’ve decided to get a hot tub for your home. First of all, great choice. The hot tub installation of your dreams has just become one step closer. Now for the practical bit. You’ll want to make the most of your investment by planning and designing a unique hot tub installation for your needs.
But how should you go about creating your perfect hot tub installation? Everything from the hot tub itself to its location and design will go into creating your dream home hot tub experience. So, to help you get started we’ve put together a simple guide to creating your ideal installation.
- Research Different Ideas
First thing’s first, you’ll want to start by doing some research. But don’t worry, this is the fun kind of research. You get to look at hot tubs after all! We recommend perusing the internet and various brochures to get a feel for what you’re after; what you like and dislike. What you think will work in your space and what doesn’t feel quite right.
Don’t worry, nothing is binding yet. Later you’ll be able to sit down with a hot tub specialist for some expert advice. But it’s always good to have a few ideas in mind already. Pinterest, Instagram, and messaging boards are a great place to start. You can also check out Everything Billiards and Spas’ hot tub brochure and hot tub installation gallery where you’ll be able to get all the inspiration you need before your consultation.
- Consider Your Existing Space
Once you’ve got some ideas flowing, think about your space. Consider where you want to place your hot tub. Does your backyard have room for a seven-to-eight-seater or is it perfect for a more bijou installation? Are there any other new garden accessories that you plan to install along with your hot tub? Most importantly, what will you be using your hot tub for? Think about who will be using the hot tub, your lifestyle needs and aspirations.
It’s also worth thinking about the level of privacy you want. If you have neighbors all around your home then you may wish to have your hot tub walled off in an enclosure, outdoor room, or gazebo. Privacy can always be incorporated into your garden design with beautiful backyard landscaping. Think trellises, garden rooms, trees, and natural fencing.
- Budget for the Short and Long-Term
When looking for a hot tub solution you’ll want to consider the costs and find an affordable solution that you’ll be able to sustain for years to come. So, how much does it cost to run a hot tub? As well as the initial cost, keep in mind that there will also be ongoing maintenance costs. Proper maintenance is super important to keep your hot tub in full working order.
Factors to bear in mind include:
- The cost of electricity
- Additional accessories (e.g., insulating cover & water pump)
- Water replacement and cleaning
- Will you do the installation and maintenance yourself or hire a pro?
