Relaxing in a hot tub is a great way to unwind on cool evenings. If you are interested in having a spa in your own backyard, you have two main choices: a portable or an inground spa. There are many benefits to a custom inground hot tub compared to the aboveground option.
With an aboveground hot tub, your spa is separate from your pool and may even be located across the yard. It may also look different than your pool and clash visually. With an inground spa, it’s easier to fully integrate your hot tub with your swimming pool. A spillover spa is one way to accomplish this and there are also many different options depending on the style of your yard and your personal preferences. Even if you place your inground spa in an area slightly further away from your pool, you can use similar design elements to visually connect them.
At Pools by Design, we construct inground spas using only the highest-quality materials. This creates a high-end aesthetic that will elevate the look and feel of your backyard. Compared to a portable hot tub, a custom spa is more luxurious and can help you create the oasis of your dreams.
While aboveground pre-made hot tubs may have some options for customization, an inground spa offers nearly limitless design possibilities. You can include features such as colored lights, jets, bubblers, fountains, a Pebble Tec finish, and more. We can help you design the perfect spa for you, down to the smallest detail.
A portable aboveground hot tub does not generally last as long as an inground spa, even with the most diligent care. When you invest in a custom hot tub, you and your family will be able to enjoy it for years to come.
If you sell your home in the future, your spa can be an attractive amenity for potential buyers. A luxurious custom hot tub adds value to your home in addition to improving the quality of your life.
Although you can construct a hot tub separately from your pool, building these two elements at the same time is often the best option for cost and efficiency. This also allows you to completely transform your backyard. When you work with Pools by Design, the process starts with a consultation where we will discuss how you would like the finished pool and spa combination to look. We will discuss big-picture elements as well as water features and add-ons.
