Hot Tub Designs and Layouts
For the residents of Colorado, we all know how amazing it is to live in Colorado. It has its perks. For those living in downtown Denver, there is an enormous amount of arts, food, and culture.

However, wherever you live in Colorado, there is no shortage of things to do. There is beautiful scenery with an unmatched amount of outdoor recreational activities.
While there are plenty of things to do outside, it is always a welcoming idea to relax and entertain at home. And what better way to do that than having a hot tub in your backyard.
Here we provide you with answers to a few common questions regarding hot tub designs and layouts. First, let us show you a few hot tub styles, than we will follow up with hot tub layouts and décor around it.

Hot Tub Layouts
Where Should I Put My Hot Tub?
After you have decided a hot tub is right for you, the first question you need to ask yourself is, “where should I put my hot tub”? This is important to know. Finding the right placement will depend on the design and layout of the space available as well as how and when you will be using it. Below we list a few things to consider.
Delivery of The Hot Tub
Each hot tub has different spa dimensions. There needs to be a safe way to access the property to install the hot tub. In some cases, a crane may be needed for installation. If you hire a professional and reputable company, the delivery options will be planned out by them.
Hot tubs may look light on the showroom floor; however, once water is added, they can weigh approximately six thousand pounds. You may be wondering, “can a hot tub be put on a deck”?. The answer is yes, but only if the spa’s total weight does not exceed the structures’ rated capacity. A robust solid base such as four-inch concrete slabs, paving stones, bricks, railroad ties, and gravel is recommended.
Waterproofing and Drainage
Depending on the type of hot tub and spa system, it should be drained once or several times a year; therefore, it should be placed with easy access to a drain. It must be placed so the water flow will be directed away from the spas equipment panel. If you put the hot tub on a deck, make sure to coat and waterproof the deck to prevent mold, mildew, and rotting.
Ease of Use and Maintenance
Think about how and when you will be using the hot tub? Will you be using it in the snow? Also, think about the maintenance and repairs if needed. Easy access is vital for both you to enjoy and for maintenance and repair.
Privacy and Comfort
Choosing a location that is private is key. Make sure you choose a location that will provide comfort for years to come.
Once you have decided on the hot tub design and where you are going to place it on your property, you can now become creative with decorative options around it.
What Should I Put Around My Hot Tub?
- Build a multi-layered platform around it.
- Build a bench around one or more sides.
- Add two steps on one or more sides for easy access.
- Construct a gazebo.
- Build a brick, stone, hardwood, or composite wood wall around it or accent with more than one type of material.
- Construct boulders around it, with greenery in-between for a natural setting.
- Create a bar around the sides with seating.
- Add beautiful greenery and flowers.
- Last but not least, enjoy the view.
