Plan ahead for your new hot tub. Having a hot tub plan can help you achieve a “built-in” look, and avoid the impression that the spa was an add-on. As you shop for a new hot tub, keep in mind the dimensions of the patio, deck or yard for your spa installation. Look through home and garden magazines for design ideas. And browse through the photos of hot tub owners’ backyards for patio, deck, and spa installation ideas.
Consider your family’s needs and desires. Do you entertain? Love family barbeques? Enjoy reading or quiet meditation? The answers to these questions will help you determine the type of setting you want for your hot tub, and which hot tub model is best for you.
Is your spa easy to get to from the house? The closer it is, the more you’ll enjoy it. Consider a patio or deck just outside the home for spa installation.
Think about privacy when deciding where to place your hot tub. Check the views into your yard. Tall shrubs or plants can form an enclosure for your hot tub installation. Sundance Spas’ SunStrong panels can add privacy and enhance the cozy atmosphere inside your spa.
Identify sun and shade spots as well as wind directions. Place your hot tub where you can use it comfortably throughout the year.
How’s the view from your hot tub? Is there attractive landscaping or a sunset view? Need to keep an eye on the children as you soak? Consider the line of sight from your spa.
