You’ve carefully considered all of the advantages of owning a hot tub, from the health benefits to the value it adds to your home. Now you’re ready to start hot tub shopping.
But, before you head out to the store, there are a few things to consider. Selecting the right hot tub size for your home is no easy task. There are a ton of brands offering a variety of models in a number of sizes.
So, how do you choose the one that’s right for you?
Here are a few tips to make the process a little bit easier.
1. Setting a Budget
Before you set foot in a store, it’s a smart idea to put a realistic budget in place. Your budget should include both an ideal price and the absolute maximum amount you’re able to spend. Having a top figure gives you some flexibility to add on a few bells and whistles to a basic model or even up your size if a smaller unit just won’t cut it.
Once you’ve set your budget, use that as a guideline on what hot tubs to look at. There’s no point in falling in love with a spa that’s way outside your price range and then feeling like you have to settle for something less.
Instead, only look at tubs that match your budget. You might be surprised at how many options are available to you.
2. Matching Your Spa to the Space
The area where you intend to install your spa can also be a major deciding factor on what you buy. If you have tons of room, you can choose any size or model within your budget.
If you have a small yard or need to make the spa work with an existing deck, however, the spa you choose will need to match the space available.
If this is the case, measure the area carefully and jot the dimensions down. When you start shopping, an expert at your local dealership will be able to recommend the best spas for your space.
3. The Needs of Your Family
If you have a lot of space for your spa, the size you need will likely come down to how many people will be using it on a regular basis. If it’s just for you or you and your partner, a two-person model will serve you well.
If you plan to use it with your children or with a few friends, a four-person tub is a great choice. If, however, you have a large family or plan to entertain a lot a six-seat or even an eight-seat tub will work best for you.
4. Extras and Financing
Many hot tubs come with a variety of options from LED lighting and aromatherapy technology to extra jets. Deciding what options you need and what you can live without will also determine the types of spas to look at. If you want a spa with 57 jets, for instance, you’ll need to look at larger models.
If your budget and wish list just aren’t lining up, you may want to consider financing.
Financing might enable you to afford a higher-quality tub than you’d be able to afford on your own. Speak with the experts at your local hot tub store for more information.
