Bringing the Indoors Out: The Growing Popularity of Garden Hot Tubs

The list of things we consider as must-have home accessories is forever changing. Just a couple years ago having a home theatre was all the rage, and before that it was kitchen appliances in bright hues. But what home features are must-haves now? It seems the latest home improvement trend that has infected homeowners across Australia is a stylish mixture of outdoor living and relaxation – the garden hot tub.

Thanks to the delightfully warm weather we get to enjoy for most of the year, outdoor living in Australia has always been extremely popular, and now hot tubs are becoming a big part of that. The reason is perhaps our stressful lifestyles that leave no free time for gardening. Instead, what we’re left with is broad empty lots that can give us the perfect opportunity for a hot tub to shine. Introducing a hot tub to your backyard, not only can help you add value to your outdoor space, but it can also serve as a solution to your over-stressed lifestyle.

Hot Tub

It’s no secret that everyone likes hot tubs as they are a great source of relaxation and offer a number of amazing benefits to our health. However, it’s a whole different experience when you get to enjoy bubbling, hot water under a clear blue sky. Just imagine yourself soaking up the sun rays while soaking in the tub, surrounded by lovely and fragrant flower beds. Nice! Plus, it’s a relaxing experience that comes with less costs, potential risks and cleaning difficulties.

When you think about it, it’s a lot less expensive to simply place your spa outdoors than having to undertake costly remodelling in order to fit one in your bathroom. The heat and moisture that’s emitted from the spa also increases the chances for mould to appear. Plus, if a bathroom spa gets damaged, it can result in it leaking through the floor, destroying your home and belongings. On the other hand, there are no overflowing risks involved in owning an outdoor spa.

Another great thing about having an outdoor spa is that you can choose any size you want without having to worry about being restricted by a lack of space. After all, what’s the use of a hot tub if you can’t enjoy it in the company of family and friends. When you have a large open space on your disposal, you are free to get yourself a tub that can comfortably fit 8, 9, or even 12 people. The only thing you should worry about is keeping out unwanted “quests” when you’re not using the tub. Luckily, with a good spa cover, your investment can be well protected from any animal intruders as well as the outdoor elements.
