The key to getting the right hot tub for you, whilst also sticking to a predetermined budget is careful planning.
There are a few things to consider before purchasing your at-home hot tub. Before considering any of this, you must establish your budget and plan for your hot tub purchase. This way you won’t allow yourself to go over.
Where do I want my hot tub to be?
Choosing the best placement for your hot tub is imperative when it comes to buying on a budget. This is especially the case if you want to get the most enjoyment out of your hot tub and the most bang for your buck.
Delivery & Installation
Many people forget to consider the actual installation process of their hot tub, and purchase one that won’t fit through the gate! Don’t let this be you, this will skyrocket your budget!
Note the measurements that the hot tub must be to fit in its permanent home. The delivery crew must also have sufficient space to transport your hot tub to where it needs to be. Any problems with installations could lead to extra costs.
Sinking your hot tub
If you intend to have your hot tub lowered into the ground, special preparations should be made so that this is easily done on delivery day. Consider all of the costs of a solid base, digging into the ground or even decking.
Comfort & Ease of Use
A big part of ensuring that you’re getting your money’s worth with a hot tub is accessibility. If it is hard to get to, it is unlikely to become a part of your daily routine.
It is also important to consider weather conditions and whether you should place your hot tub in a sheltered area. If it is always raining where you live, this could mean you won’t use your hot tub if it is completely exposed to the conditions.
What type of hot tub do you want?
There are a plethora of features that can be included with your hot tub. You must prioritise these accordingly, to stop yourself from going over your budget.
For example, if you’re looking for a hot tub with six seats and LED lights, other things may need to be sacrificed if you want to keep the cost to a minimum.
If you’re looking for premium budget hot tubs, there are a comprehensive range of shapes and sizes on the market today.
First, consider how many people will be using your hot tub. Starting at 3 people, you can get hot tubs that cater to exactly how many people you need it to. Ensure you aren’t getting a hot tub that is too small just to keep the price low, as this might end up being a mistake in the long run.
Next, you can browse the features that you most favour in a hot tub. LED lights, built-in speakers, water fountains and a range of jets, are just some examples.
Lastly, the small finishing touches might seem insignificant, but they matter too! Do you want a wooden effect, monochrome, square or round? This might be important for making sure your hot tub fits well in your home or garden.
Now you’re all done… enjoy your at-home spa!
