Hot Tub Lighting Ideas That Will Illuminate With Beauty
Are you thinking of getting a hot tub in the new year? Whether you’re new to the spa world or you’ve already purchased one and want to add to the ambiance, using lights can really convert the space.
While there are many ways to style your backyard and spa area, these hot tub lighting ideas will get you started. Turn your personal retreat into a luxury spa when you install charming string lights, outdoor landscape lights, and more.
One of the easiest choices for hot tub lights is to use the lights that come with them. Many spas come with lighting, and you can ask to see what they look like before you buy. The lights determine a lot of the ambiance, so make sure you like them before you make a purchase.
Look for color-changing lights when you’re shopping for your hot tub. Many have a setting to change automatically and loop through the colors, or you can select the color you like and keep it there.
If you’ve already bought a spa and don’t like the lights it came with, consider buying different color-changing lights. Turn yours off on the spa, and use the new ones to get the right feel.
Warm, Welcoming Hot Tub Lighting Ideas
Hot water can help you de-stress and relax, especially when paired with welcoming lights. They lend a sense of warmth to the backyard, even on cool nights.
Some of the best lights for a hot tub are non-electric. Fire pits or lanterns can help set the mood, and the warmer color is more relaxing than bright LEDs. Metal fire pits often have designs in the side, so choose one that fits with the style of your home and backyard landscaping.
Outdoor Lighting for Spas
The spa lighting near the tub isn’t the only lighting that helps set the mood. Other outdoor lights in your backyard contribute to the overall ambiance. You can add two types of outdoor lighting to make it relaxing: landscape lighting and task lighting.
Landscape lighting includes in-ground lights along steps and pathways. They can be subtle and still beautiful. You may even want to choose some lights to surround the patio where your hot tub is, to brighten that area of the backyard, and set off the spa as a backyard feature.
You can also use string lights to give it a bistro feel and convert your yard to an outdoor paradise. Edison bulbs are very stylish, rather than plain white twinkle lights. Line a walkway or zig-zag them over the top of the hot tub to create a ceiling of lights.
Task lighting to help you navigate the uneven ground is more for safety, but it still helps create the right atmosphere. These can be motion-activated to save on electricity and to darken the rest of the yard when you’re sitting in the water to help you relax.
The hot tub lighting ideas above will help you convert your backyard into a perfect area to relax and unwind in your new hot tub.
