Before the heat of the summer really gets to you and makes you crabby, get a hot tub fitted at home. It’s a fine addition not only because it would help you let your hair down but also because you won’t need to spend time on spa appointments.
With a sauna tub in the house, it won’t be too hard for you to wind down at the end of the day. Just create a nice soak, put on some soothing music and your personal spa would be ready!
The best place for your personal hot tub is undoubtedly the bathroom. Before getting a hot tub fitted, consider the space that your bathroom can accommodate for the new entrant. The next thing you need to figure out is if you want a portable sauna bath tub fixed. Such tubs stay above the ground and you can get them re-fitted anywhere around the house. However, if you’ve decided that the bathroom is where your sauna bathtub needs to be, you can get a permanent tub – one that sinks into the ground.
While a hot tub in the bathroom is predictable, one in the bedroom is far from it. While you sip a glass of wine or read a book, a spa in the bedroom can be both private and relaxing. Since sauna bathtubs can be heavy, you may need to consider if the structure of your house is sound enough to carry it. Typically, getting a sauna bathtub installed in a first floor bedroom is safer than getting one in a second floor bedroom. You can always seek opinion from an architect about it.
Prefer the outdoor cool breeze during summer evenings? Find a spot in your yard to get your sauna bathtub fixed. Make sure you get the best view from wherever your new addition stands.. However, if privacy is all you want, the backyard might be a better idea.
If some space in your house is unused, you could even think of creating a private spa room. If you host guests frequently, this could be a better idea. Even otherwise, it would be a private sanctuary you would always want to go back to. Talk to your architect to figure out the right spot where you could have one created. Other considerations like view and access could also mean a lot to you – so, get the same clarified. Increased humidity is an issue with spa rooms. So you should plan accordingly and make the best of your sauna bathtub investment.
