A long relaxing soak in a luxurious hot tub provides a welcome relief from the stresses of everyday life, but there are additional reasons to add this amenity as an outdoor living feature. When creatively designed and integrated, an outdoor hot tub area can allow you to enjoy your yard even in the dead of winter while adding extraordinary beauty to your landscape. Here are some design ideas for luxurious and beautiful outdoor hot tubs.
Attractive, Creative Decking
Deck designs can go far beyond flat platforms surrounding the tub. Multi-level decking and built-in benches, for example, can create a tiered design that offers extra areas for seating while adding architectural interest. Brick or concrete may also be used along with, or instead of, wood to match hardscapes.
Going with the Landscape Flow
Hot tubs can be designed around hills and slopes for stunning results. Installing hot tubs and spa areas at one of the highest points of your landscape, for instance, can allow you to enjoy your luxurious hot tub while also taking in spectacular mountain views. Concrete can be used around the deck’s perimeter as a retaining wall and a seating area.
Rustic, Earthy Charm
If your design tastes lean towards rustic and woodsy, consider a cedar hot tub rather than concrete or fiberglass. Cedar and other types of wood tubs are attractive enough to be used as stand-alone features, but can also easily blend with other landscape design features. Set against a backdrop of greenery or other privacy features, the hot tub area can become a heavenly retreat.
Luxurious & Artful Ambiance
An outdoor stone fireplace or fire pit near the hot tub can bring an extra level of luxury, coziness and ambiance to this space. Ambiance can also be added with creative, artful decorative hardscaping around hot tub areas.
