Homeowners can install spas either indoors or outdoors. That said, putting a tub inside the house takes substantial preparation. Not every house can accommodate a spa without a few renovations.
Yet, finding the best spot on your property for a tub also requires planning. Here are some considerations that will help you discover the ideal place for your spa.
Close to the Home and a Power Supply
In the deep cold of winter, you’ll want your tub no more than a few paces from the door. Apart from convenience, keeping the spa near your home also ensures an easy electric installation. Nevertheless, always hire a licensed electrician to connect your tub to the power supply.
Around the Desk or on a Concrete Foundation
Hot tubs require flat, sturdy foundations. At the least, you should construct a 4-ft cement base or a deck capable of supporting 150lbs per square foot. Many homeowners like to design spaces around their new spas, so consider your long-term plans and how the spa fits in. Although possible, relocating a hot tub is laborious and expensive.
Away from Peering Neighbours
Privacy makes a hot tub more restful. Consider how fences, trees, and other shrubby impede the view into your yard. Many homeowners like to build gazebos on top of their tubs for greater privacy. Whatever strategy you choose, create a backdoor haven for the best spa experience!
Accessible by the Movers
Hot tubs come in few pieces—they are bulky and awkward to maneuver. For this reason, consider how easily you can move a hot tub into the location of your choosing. Many homeowners find it easier to build around their new spas and avoid clutter around the installation area.
