Thinking about getting a hot tub, but not sure where to put it? There are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind when choosing the perfect place for your hot tub that will enhance your enjoyment.
If you live in an area that’s gets snow, or other bad weather, we highly suggest placing your hot tub RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR. If you put your hot tub on the other side of the yard where the view is great, but have to walk across 30 feet of ice and snow just to get there, you probably won’t end up using your hot tub as much as you could if it was placed right outside the back door, kitchen door, garage door, etc.
If you live in an area where weather is not a concern, then consider the following factors when placing your new spa:
Where will bathers change? Place the spa with easy access to a bathroom.
Avoid placing the spa outside a room with beautiful carpets. Wet bathers can leave wet spots behind.
Consider the route bathers will take between the house and the spa. What type of walking surface will be non-slip and easy to keep free of garden debris? A hard surface such as aggregate or concrete is best for keeping debris from being tracked into the spa.
Where will bathers leave slippers and towels? Towel racks or covered baskets work well for these items.
Think about lighting for safety in reaching the spa at night.
For your best garden view, place your spa close to the house, near your exit door, rather than in the back of your garden facing towards your house. Remember, the spa is your ringside seat to the changing seasons, bird life and stars over your garden. Make the most of it.
