Outdoor Hot Tubs: An Uncommon Luxury
For those of us living in the big cities, the idea of a hot tub may seem as unreachable as a secluded cabin in the woods. But those who have been fortunate enough to have been introduced to the joys and value of taking a bubble bath outdoors will tell you that they would never want to give up that experience again.
Whether enjoying a romantic evening with your significant other or just sitting out there on your own, soaking away slow minutes in an outdoor hot tub offers an unparalleled feeling of serenity and relaxation. We will discuss some of the best reasons to get an outdoor hot tub for your home, and some things you should know about them before doing so.
1. New Year’s Eve
As we all know, the holiday season is a time of celebrating with friends and family, watching the ball drop in Times Square, and… a lot of drinking. For many of us out there, New Year’s Eve is a time of profound evil. And why not? The occasion demands it! Having an outdoor hot tub will allow you to relax in after-hours style when your drunk friends are ready to crash, but you aren’t quite ready to call it a night just yet. To make things even better, many hot tubs come with a particular lighting system that turns the bubbles and walls of water into a unique and magical glow. It will be like you took a bubble bath in Times Square!
2. Outdoor Hot Tubs Can Be Used Anywhere
There is always an open landscape behind every home. Well, hopefully so anyway. Most yards have overgrown trees and shrubs which can’t be cut back enough to put your favorite lawn chairs out onto the grass. But as long as there is not too much planting or weeding involved, we can usually find some kind of open space where we can safely enjoy our hot tub experience without worrying about the neighbors peeking at us through their windows. Outdoor hot tubs are the perfect solution for this problem. However, you will want to be careful when storing the tub when not in use; nothing stops you from taking it outside and using it in your backyard when you need to get out of the house for a while.
3. The Style of Outdoor Hot Tubs Is Unmatched by Their Indoor Counterparts
When we think of hot tubs and outdoor spas, we would never picture them looking like something what we could find in a man cave or a rec room in an old home movie. But an outdoor hot tub can look just as classy and stylish as any other spa or hot tub you might see around town (maybe even more so). If you want a hot tub that will turn heads and catch the eyes of your neighbors, then an outdoor hot tub is it. Outdoor hot tubs are often more like works of art than the simple backyard spas most people envision them to be. They can come in all shapes and sizes, feature unique designs and many different colors.
4. Outdoor Hot Tubs Are Often Easy to Setup
Many times when buying a hot tub or spa at a home improvement store (or when buying one online), you may find that the instructions for assembly are not clear at all. They can be very confusing and even downright misleading if you don’t read them thoroughly before starting your project. However, if you choose to buy an outdoor hot tub, chances are you are getting it shipped to your home, so there’s no need to worry about how it will be taken away when you are done with it. Also, most outdoor hot tubs are relatively easy to set up. You usually just have to lay out the lining of the tub on the ground and fill it up with water. Although this may take some time for the tub to fill up completely (depending on its size), it is still a lot easier than lugging heavy stones around or attempting to assemble parts that don’t fit together correctly.
While it is true that indoor hot tubs are often more convenient and spacious, some of us simply enjoy soaking in an outdoor tub more than we do the process of setting it up. Outdoor hot tubs may lack all of the amenities you can find inside your favorite indoor spa, but they also come with their perks, like the ability to be easily moved around or taken out on short notice. Whether you want to relax or party, go for an outdoor hot tub and see what it has to offer.
