If you don’t have one already, a hot tub is likely high on your wish list, but may also seem impossible if your backyard space is limited.
Before you write off your dream backyard oasis, consider the versatility of a smaller footprint tub. Finding a hot tub that fits into a tighter space requires some foresight and planning but it certainly doesn’t mean that you’ll have to sacrifice on massage capacity or comfort. By measuring your space carefully and factoring in the tips found in the Pre-Delivery Guide and checklist, you can find the Beachcomber that’s perfect for your space. The new Limited Edition models are ideal for tight spaces – both the 540 and 710 are small footprint tubs, fully loaded with premium features and maximum jets. To help you choose your preferred model, consider also the location that you plan to place it in. The surface ground for installation can vary from wood decking to a cement pad or interlocking patio bricks. Paired with creative landscaping, thoughtful placement can make even a small outdoor nook feel like your private backyard oasis.
While deciding on the location of your hot tub, remember that you’ll get more enjoyment from it when it’s about 10 feet from your back door, for quick and easy access. Also ask yourself the following questions:
- Who will get the most use out of the hot tub? If you have small children, safety will undoubtedly be one of your top concerns, so factor in any railings, shrubs, trees or overhanging gutters as obstacles, when planning placement for space efficiency.
- Will you be inviting friends out to enjoy it? Is seclusion your main goal? Or would you prefer a more central location?
- Will you have to install any privacy features? A small space can lend itself well to a cozy hot tub installation, but you may have to think about shielding accessories such as patio umbrellas or strategic shrub placement.
Remember to plan your delivery route as well, for a smooth and efficient installation process. And once you’ve checked everything off your planning checklist, put aside concerns about space and remember that beautiful summer nights and long winters provide the perfect setting for relaxation under the stars in a space efficient Limited Edition Beachcomber!
