5 Easy DIY Projects to Complement Your Hot Tub

Create an at-home spa getaway for a restful staycation, without spending a ton of money at a brand-name store. Making a well-designed space that blends function and form is easier than you think. All you need is a hot tub and some vision.

1. Light and Fragrance
Start off with the easy stuff. Add ambience and fragrance to your soaks by placing candles or lanterns around your hot tub. Stringing lights along a pergola or fence can add charm, while also increasing visibility at night. Plants like citronella grass, lemon balm, rosemary, and lavender will act as natural aromatherapy, and will keep mosquitos away.

2. Privacy
Create separation of space with artful touches, like placing simple wooden fence posts around your tub and hang sheer fabric around the structure, creating the feeling of a personal sanctuary.

3. Seating

Get used dining room chairs from a thrift store (perhaps mismatched), saw off the legs, and attach the remainder of the chair (seat and backing) to a tree stump to create unique, outdoorsy seating.

4. Storage

Cover an aluminum tub with wood and a small tablecloth to provide an eating or drinking surface, with more space to keep pillows and towels. That way, you won’t have to abandon your guests to trek back into the house or search through your linen closet. Decorate and use plastic sand pails as receptacles for everything from silverware to wet bathing suits.

5. Steps and Walkways

Get some bright paint colors and decorate the steps leading to your hot tub. This is also a fun project to do with your kids—each child could paint a different area of the steps. Another idea is to use cut, treated lumber rounds or install large rocks to create natural steps for getting in and out. Practical, efficient solar lights and whimsical glow-in-the-dark paint will illuminate your path after the sun sets without adding to your energy bill.

Outdoor Hot Tub Summer Tips

How-to’s from the Customer Showcase

Jacuzzi® hot tub owners Barry and Patti Wilson of Newcastle, Ontario didn’t know their backyard was going to be a case study. But we think their Jacuzzi J-400™ Collection hot tub installation provides lots of good summer backyard ideas.

Create a fresh, seasonal environment around your hot tub
For example, note the palms near the hot tub, their green leaves framing the sparkling water of the hot tub. The Wilson’s home is located in Newcastle, Ontario, which is situated on the northern shore of Lake Ontario – not a place where palms grow naturally. Bringing in palm plants during the summer can calm the spirit with visions of tropical climates, and it’s an inexpensive way to create a fresh, seasonal environment around your hot tub.

Now’s the season to unpack the scarves, dust off the rake, and think about cool-weather hot tub accessories.

Getting your hot tub ready for the winter months is easy. No special preparation is required for you to enjoy a warm, hydrotherapeutic massage in your backyard at a moment’s notice. But you can use these weeks before the really cold weather sets in to enhance your hot tub with spa accessories.

My Dog Sleeps On My Hot Tub Cover

Is It Time to Replace Your Hot Tub Cover?

Actually, it’s my co-worker’s dog, Dusty, that likes to hang out on her hot tub cover. Not because the outdoor temperature is cold (this is Southern California, after all), but because Dusty can look into the kitchen window and the neighbor’s backyard from his perch. It’s probably comfortable, too.

Obviously, if you have a big yellow Lab like that resting on your hot tub cover, it’s going to start to sag a lot sooner than in normally would. Here are the typical reasons why hot tub covers need replacing:

6 Cold Weather Hot Tub Accessories

Hot Tub Accessories to Warm Up Your Winter

There are only a few months left to soak in your hot tub while enjoying a delightful winter scene around you. Some hot tub owners insist that the best thing about a hot tub is using it during cold weather.

I’ve heard of people jumping out of the hot tub to make a snow angel on the powdered ground then jumping back in to defrost and chuckle at the daredevil move. If it were my choice, I would choose to remain in the warm water of the hot tub and chuckle at someone else jumping out to make a snow angel, I guess I’m not risky like that. I have also heard of families playing charades in the cold rain. There is something about a hot tub and cold weather that seems to bring on the games.

We asked on our Facebook page “How do you enjoy your hot tub during the cold months?” A Jacuzzi follower responded “We take our 3 young kids out there in the cold and play ‘guess the animal I’m thinking of’’! Now every time we get in our hot tub together, they always ask to play that game!” I guess being immersed in warm massaging waters surrounded by laughter would distract one from the freezing cold temperatures that lurk outside the hot tub.
