Spa Retreats in Your Own Backyard

Hot Tub and Pergola

Sam Gonzalez shares handy guidelines on installing a spa in your backyard.

The finest spa could be waiting for you in your own backyard. If you are looking for better ways to melt away the stress from work, then the answer could be your own backyard spa and private retreat. It’s easier to obtain than you think, and it will make your evenings at home much more enjoyable.

The Versatility of Spas

Spas are more versatile than you think. Available in sizes ranging from tiny ones for two people to large hot tubs that can seat a dozen, it’s easy to find the spa that’s just right for your needs. If you like sitting in the spa and want to share it with your friends, then a round spa that seats more than 8 could be the way to go. If you prefer an intimate experience for you and your spouse, then you might want to consider a smaller version. Either way, you will love relaxing in the spa after a long day at work.

Easier to Install than you Think

Spas are surprisingly easy to install. The hardest part is usually running the dedicated electrical line, and your spa dealer can put you in touch with qualified electricians who can handle the job. Beyond that, you will need a structure that can support the weight of the water filled spa and a garden hose. Once you make the decision to invest in a spa and the line is run, the spa itself only takes a few hours to install and fill.

Invest in the Right Furniture for the Retreat

The right furniture is a necessity when you are investing in a spa. When the weather is nice, you may want to sit outside and dry off a little before going back in the house. Look for furniture with waterproof cushions or mesh seats, so you can sit and relax without worrying about spoiling the furniture. A spa is made for relaxing, so you should include some patio furniture that fits well with the relaxation theme. Look for beautiful chaise longues, gliders, or couches that will invite you to sit back and put your feet up.

Create the Right Atmosphere with Fabric, Light, and Plants

Every fine professional spa has plenty of plants, fabric, and soft lighting. Protect your spa with a luxurious enclosure and then fit it with curtains for privacy and elegance. Drape fabric over a pergola for a sophisticated touch, and invest in a fabric screen in an area where you would like more privacy for the spa. Choose soft lights to cast a welcoming glow that will encourage you to sit back in the spa and let the stress of the day flow away with the water.

You deserve to have a luxurious retreat in your yard, and a luxurious spa can create the perfect oasis. Include the right furniture to maintain the relaxed mood, and carry that theme throughout the area with luxurious linens and soft lighting. Spas are easy to install and maintain, so there’s no reason you cannot enjoy the elegance of one in your own backyard oasis.
