Is there a better way to wrap up a long day than relaxing in a hot tub? Adding a hot tub to your yard elevates your space and adds a touch of luxury to everyday life. If you don’t feel like you use your outdoor space enough or you’re looking for a way to relax at home, adding a hot tub to your outdoor space is the perfect way to do that. If you’re ready to jump in and install your new hot tub, here are some inspirations to help you design the perfect outdoor oasis.
Tips for Adding a Hot Tub
If you’re planning on purchasing a hot tub and don’t want to have it installed in a larger outdoor design, there are some great ways that you can seamlessly integrate your tub into the space. Instead of leaving the tub out on its own where it may look out of place, you can utilize the features of your outdoor space to help conceal some of the sides. Consider placing it up against a railing or a rock wall feature while keeping one side exposed for easy entry. With this one side exposed, consider building steps around the tub that complement the traits of your outdoor space and make your hot tub look like a permanent fixture rather than a randomly placed object.
If you already have a deck as part of your outdoor space, you can consider incorporating your hot tub into the deck. Using similar wood as the deck for siding creates a seamless flow from the deck to your tub. Utilizing extra space in your yard is the perfect way to extend your deck into a hot tub area without having to step through the grass. You can even add a built-in pergola over your hot tub if your deck gets a good amount of sun. If you have a patio, you can easily build your hot tub into the patio space either above or below as well. Installing it above leaves room to use gorgeous stones and create a centerpiece for your patio. Some hot tubs are focal pieces themselves and may come with wood siding. You can build these pieces into decks or patio spaces and help them stand out while still being extremely functional.
Don’t want all of your neighbors noticing your fancy new hot tub installation? This is where a concealed hot tub may be a great option. Using features of your outdoor space, you can conceal a hot tub below an existing patio. The tub can even be situated below the line of the patio, creating complete privacy. Add some beautiful grasses and landscaping features, and it will blend right into a garden space.
Installing a permanent, convertible cover is another way to hide your tub and create a dual-purpose space. Building the tub into your deck space allows you to install a swinging piece of deck that covers and protects your tub while also giving you more space when you need it. This is also a great way to install a rolling cover that you can store under the deck area while using the tub.
