There’s nothing more relaxing than slipping into your hot tub with a glass of bubbly in your hand and letting your worries float away. But if you’re staring at a brick wall, an unkempt garden, or straight into your messy kitchen, it can distract from the relaxing moment.
To really make your hot tub feel like an outdoor spa where you can fully unwind, it is worth paying attention to the surrounding environment.
Lots of foliage
Most people keep their hot tubs in the back garden, which will have some plants in any way, but it is worth surrounding the whirlpool with some potted plants and climbers as well.
Becky Decker from Gardeninghood.com told Homes And Gardens: “A hot tub deck is the perfect place to incorporate natural elements into your outdoor space.”
Hot tubs are best enjoyed at night when the kids are in bed, you’ve finished work, and you can fully relax. However, this means you’ll need some lighting to see what you’re doing.
Think carefully about this, as getting it wrong could alter the ambience completely. Something gentle like fairy lights, lanterns and candles can really make the deck look romantic and help you unwind in the evening.
A wooden bench surround
There’s something about natural materials that make people feel wholesome and calm, so why not surround your hot tub with a wooden bench?
Not only does the extra wood make the jacuzzi look less out of place in the garden, but the bench is a great place to put your book, drink, nibbles, or sunglasses. This way you don’t have to keep popping in and out of the pool, taking you out of your relaxed state each time.
However you design your decking area, it is imperative you keep your jacuzzi well looked after by booking hot tub maintenance services every so often.
Whilst an almost ubiquitous sight in luxury homes around the world, it is surprisingly rare to see a Jacuzzi taken out of hot tub storage and set up outdoors to create an outdoor spa paradise.
Part of the reason for this is that the weather in the UK is far more variable and prone to sudden changes than in other parts of the world such as Australia and countries close to the equator.
The other part is that due to the functional nature and appearance of a hot tub, it is difficult to make it harmonise aesthetically with many types of garden design.
However, it is not impossible, and with that in mind, here are some ways to keep your garden looking great and having the benefits of a hot tub as well.
Invest In A Spa Cover
Typically, the aesthetic issue with a hot tub is not when it is in use, but when it is out of season and it is being protected. By default, it will have a vinyl cover or a tarpaulin thrown on top of it, which in an otherwise natural-looking garden can look unsightly and out of place.
Instead, spend the money on a cover that looks fantastic and completes the look of a home. If you already have a hot tub deck, design it with a matching cover that can slide underneath, adding convenient sun lounging space when not in use
Reduce Its Exposure
By either moving it to a corner of your garden or by investing in pool-side plants, you can make your hot tub as natural an addition to your garden as a pond or water feature.
There are a lot of options here, but the key is to help the hot tub blend in, providing the luxury benefit of an outdoor tub but without detracting from the rest of a garden’s design.
Hollywood has an intense and unique fascination with the hot tub, to the point that films in practically every genre that can get away with it have a scene with a character relaxing amidst the whirlpool jets.
A possible reason for this could be down to Jayne Mansfield, an incredibly intelligent brunette actress who made her fame by playing blond bombshells and living in a Barbie dollhouse known as the Pink Palace, complete with a heart-shaped Jacuzzi.
Her exceptionally striking image combined with her somewhat tragic story and sudden death has made her a fascinating figure ever since, and a subtle way in which this is seen to this day is that hot tubs play a role in a huge number of films.
From bubbling romances to hot tub servicing, here are some of the most fascinating hot tub scenes in film.
Hot Tub Time Machine
Released in 2010 amidst a wave of dreadfully self-aware gross-out frat boy comedies in the vein of The Hangover, Hot Tub Time Machine is the story of four friends who thanks to a combination of alcohol, energy drinks and a hot tub, transport back in time to the year 1986.
Whilst not a film that appeals to everyone, the initial scenes of debauched drinking in the hot tub itself are a fascinating example of what not to do with a tub in real life, although the consequences do not typically involve time travel.
The 2001 film Legally Blonde is an exceptionally charming and surprisingly clever comedy about love, lawyers and never judging a book by its cover, with arguably the scene that illustrates it best taking place largely in a hot tub.
The Harvard Video Essay sees both sides of Reese Witherspoon’s Elle Woods on full display, with the fashion-conscious blonde Cosmo girl side that has the level of wit and intelligence to highlight all the reasons why she should and does get into Harvard Law School.
Ignore the fact that you cannot submit a video essay to any law school, this scene is amongst the best and most imaginative hot tub scenes out there.
Ferris Bueller’s Day OffThis 1986 teen comedy classic is filled with iconic moments, lines and quotes, but one that is somewhat unfairly forgotten is the hot tub scene where Matthew Broderick’s Ferris Bueller and his girlfriend Sloane relax in a hot tub near the end of the eponymous day off.
Meanwhile, their friend Cameron sits in a catatonic state of shock, leading to something of a mood whiplash when he dives into the pool, Ferris saves him and it all turns out to be a prank in itself.
Austin Powers – International Man Of Mystery
Mike Myers’ 1997 film about flamboyant spy capers is one that is both crass and classy in equal measure, and both aspects are on full display with its hot tub scene featuring a character that will not be named here for dignity reasons.
Despite the bodily function jokes and silly rhymes, it also has a lavish wooden spa and the beautiful voice of Bangles frontwoman Susanna Hoffs providing a soft, tender counterpoint.
Hot tubs are amazing in that they are an indulgent experience that everyone can enjoy and a lot of times for far less than you might think.
The hot tub is a modern application of an ancient therapeutic idea, and most people want to take their bath out of hot tub storage and enjoy the relaxing whirlpool feeling.
For thousands of years, if you wanted the benefits of hydrotherapy, you typically had to either live around a hot spring area, such as the famed springs of Therma, the Roman Baths of Bath and the many many onsen in Japan.
However, that started to change in 1926 with the invention of a water pump by Rachele Jacuzzi. This by itself was not notable, but 22 years later, the Jacuzzi pump business would evolve and develop, culminating in the J-300 in 1948.
This pump was of a different design and was invented by Candido Jacuzzi to treat his son Ken’s rheumatoid arthritis between trips to the hospital.
The exceptionally painful condition manifests as flare-ups of painful swellings and stiffness in joints, and hydrotherapy is a low-impact form of exercise that helps to relieve joint pressure, tenderness and pain.
Once Candido saw the effects, he patented the pump and started to market it as a therapeutic treatment that turned a standard bathtub into a spa with a few minor adjustments.
However, this was not the hot tub that most people immediately think of. That came 20 years later in 1968 made by Roy Jacuzzi and was initially known as the Roman Bath, before the names hot tub and Jacuzzi stuck.
With the endorsement of actress Jayne Mansfield, who famously had a heart-shaped hot tub in her home, the Jacuzzi became a hit amongst the rich and famous, with larger whirlpool tubs being made as well as larger bathrooms to accommodate them.
The only barrier in the way of Jacuzzi was the infighting among the family themselves, which led to the company being sold to Kidde for $70m and since then it has passed from company to company.
