Hot tubs come in different designs, styles and sizes. They are made to fit any size of room or backyard. Thus, if you have a small backyard or patio, that should not stop you from investing in your own outdoor spa. Do not worry about the limited space available. There are things that you can do to maximize the space and make the space highly comfortable and ultimately relaxing. Here are some helpful tips that you can consider when placing your outdoor spa in small spaces.
• Natural landscapes effectively complement hot tubs
The nice view in your yard is a great compliment to your outdoor spa. All you need is a properly leveled patio or deck. It is also important to ensure that it will have a strong and proper foundation to avoid any accidents and damages to the tub.
You can also consider creating a terraced garden and placing your outdoor spa in the center. This is perfect for those homes with yards that are inclined. All you need is to find a flat area where you will have professionals build a level deck to serve as foundation for the tub. You do not need any other additional features because the natural environment will already provide you with the relaxation and comfort that you need.
• Replace tall fences with trees and potted plants
Tall fences can make your yard look tighter and create an uncomfortable atmosphere. Although it provides you with the privacy that you need, it does not work well with small spaces and yards. It only makes the space look more limited and closed in. What you should do is replace your tall fences with trees and potted plants. These will still provide you with the privacy that you need while letting some air in. Trees and potted plants when placed appropriately will not make your small yard look closed in. They will provide that inviting and comfortable atmosphere that you need when relaxing in your outdoor spa.
If you really want to use a fence, opt for a smaller fence. Make sure that it allows you to see the top of your neighbor’s trees and flowers. If you already have a tall fence in place and would rather not remove it, place vines and flowers on the fence to connect it with the natural landscape. Doing so will help make your fence become part of the natural landscape that will help create a spacious atmosphere.
• Use flowers and plants for decorations
If your patio or deck looks pale and you want to decorate it, use flowers and potted plants. This will provide you with the soothing comfort that you need as you relax in your hot tub. Aside from placing potted plants on the flooring of your deck, you can also consider hanging flower boxes from the railings and windows. Planting cascading blooms will create a natural curtain that can help you relax and feel more comfortable. There are lots of plants and flowers that you can consider for your deck. Make sure the ones that you choose will complement your landscape.
