Backyard ideas to inspire your hot tub install

Are you ready to transform your backyard from a place you want to escape to the ultimate escape? A backyard makeover can give your outdoor space personality and life, as well as be an inviting retreat for friends and family to gather. 

Landscaping, lighting, seating and dining areas might be a part of your plan. But the one thing you don’t want to forget?

A hot tub.

A hot tub will turn your backyard from “oh” to oasis. Not only does an at-home spa provide year-round enjoyment for family and friends, it’s a place where you can soak up much needed rest and relaxation. As you look for backyard ideas to spruce up your space, why not indulge yourself with the addition of an outdoor hot tub.

A pergola can help you define your backyard space. Install a hot tub underneath the roof. Or, as these homeowners did, use it as a place to sit before hopping in the hot tub.

Set the space

Any hot tub buyers guide will encourage you to pick a place to put the hot tub before going to a dealer. But it’s important to think beyond the spa pad or concrete patio. 

A hot tub can be built in to a new or existing deck, recessed or placed under a pergola. Surround the model you selected with decorative pavers or stones, planters or beautiful blooms.

Set the mood

We’re not sure about you but to us, there’s nothing better than sinking into the contoured seats of a Master Spas hot tub at the end of the day. Whether the light is low or the sun setting, plan for using your backyard retreat in the night-time hours. A pergola can be adorned with string lights or a lush garden could be dotted with tiki torches.

Master Spas hot tubs feature LED lighting on the waterline. Using the control panel, you can cycle through until you find your favorite color.

But no backyard escape is complete without music. Integrate waterproof speakers into your design so that you can play your favorite playlist.

Have a seat

Master Spas manufacturers cozy hot tubs for two to spacious hot tubs for eight, all from its high-tech campus in Fort Wayne, Indiana. 

But as your planning your backyard makeover, consider adding additional seating. Lounge chairs and sofas can be placed near the hot tub, and you can enjoy dinner al fresco while at a traditional patio table.

Some hot tub installations feature a bar top built around the perimeter with bar stool seating. It’s a great way to host a larger gathering without sacrificing personal space in the hot tub.

Backyard ideas

The goal of most any backyard makeover is to create a space that’s stunning to look at and look out from. 

As you consider the flowers, shrubbery and other aspects, consider the vantage points from which you will enjoy them. Be mindful not to create obstructions or leave a space untouched. 

Privacy is an important consideration if you are installing an outdoor hot tub. You want to be able to relax without your neighbors spying on you from across the lawn. Mature trees can provide privacy without having to install a fence. Alternately, you can position the hot tub cover to keep the spa out of view.
