There are so many benefits to owning a hot tub!

Here are some tips to help you get started creating the perfect backyard hot tub installation for your Fernie backyard!
Installation Inspiration Ideas
The perfect backyard begins with the perfect idea.
It can be beneficial to determine what you would like out of your backyard, before you even begin to plan for a hot tub installation. Do you prefer to relax and unwind in the comfort of your Fernie backyard, or would you rather throw the party of the year? Depending on your personal preferences, there may be certain aspects of your outdoor property that you should tweak.
For instance, a beautiful garden and landscape, complete with a privacy enhancing gazebo and fire pit may be good for those looking to escape to the serenity of their backyard at the end of a long day. On the other hand, if you’re looking to entertain on the regular, you may benefit from a complete patio set, lots of seating options, a BBQ, and even a spa stereo!

Hot Tub Replacement
The placement of your hot tub is key to the overall installation. The placement of your spa depends on several factors, including a reliable energy source and a solid foundation to build on. You can even take things like walkways and distance from the house or a phone into consideration as well. Both safety and functionality should be taken into consideration while planning to install a hot tub.
Once you’ve decided where your hot tub will go, you should plan the remainder of your installation around it. The layout of your backyard should enhance functionality, with the use of walkways, patios, exterior lighting, and outdoor furniture.
Accessories and Finishing Touches
Backyard and hot tub accessories can compliment your entire installation, while improving both functionality and safety. Things like hot tub covers, steps, lifts, and exterior lighting are quite common additions for hot tub installations. They can help protect your investment, while improving the usability of your entire backyard.
To take your backyard to the next level of luxury, consider including accessories such as matching spa planters, wall décor, a cocktail bar, a BBQ or fire pit, and even a gazebo. Contact Snow Valley Spa and Leisure today to learn about the various hot tub accessories and hot tubs for sale in Fernie!
