Recent trends have shown that home owners want to spend more time in their backyards than ever before. If you’re going to be spending lots of time in this space, it only makes sense to make it as enjoyable, beautiful, and useful as possible so you can’t wait to come back outside.
So while there are lots of health benefits directly related to spending time in a hot tub or spa, many people overlook the simple truth that a spa greatly enhances the aesthetics and functionality of your backyard living space.
Nowadays, spas are created with sleek colors and features that make them the main attraction of your backyard design. You can get them in various colors to blend in (or stand out!) from the rest of your landscaping, and you can even sink many models into the ground, which is much cheaper than installing and maintaining a pool.
Additionally, when most people see a spa in your backyard they immediately think of a relaxing retreat. Spas create an aura of relaxation and enjoyment just by their very presence; combined with other outdoor luxuries like a kitchen, fireplace, and more, you’re setting yourself up for a gorgeous space that’s become your very own oasis you can use year-round.
And speaking of functionality, having a hot tub in your backyard living space means you can enjoy your backyard 365 days of the year. In Arizona, it’s difficult to enjoy a pool during the winter because of the substantial costs to keep it heated. Also, because some people cover their pools during the winter, sometimes it’s just easier to give up on the idea of going swimming instead of going through the hassle of pulling the cover off and putting it back on at the end of your swim.
On the other hand, spas are a year-round functional piece you can enjoy in your backyard. They’re considerably more energy-efficient because of their size, and are also cheaper to install and maintain. You and your family or guests can enjoy them year-round, especially during the cooler evenings and nights when you just want to relax after a busy day.
It’s true that spas and hot tubs are well-known for the health benefits they bring, but don’t forget that they’re also highly functional investments that improve the quality of your life and the look and mood of your backyard space. A spa is your must-have this year for a truly exceptional backyard living experience.
