Owning an indoor hot tub is a rite of passage that only a few homeowners enjoy. Indoor hot tubs are very rare, and it can be difficult to get decoration options that involve them because of this.
Fortunately, this short guide will provide a few decoration options when it comes to the area surrounding your indoor hot tub, if you indeed possess one.
Because most indoor hot tubs are designed for two people at most, it can be difficult to come up with decoration options. In most cases, indoor hot tubs are placed in bathrooms, specifically bathrooms that are located in the master bedroom.
Keep this specific detail in mind as you read on, because a lot of the decoration options that you will discover will arrive back at this detail.
Another thing that needs to be mentioned is that while not all indoor hot tubs are created equal, the following options can be utilized for indoor hot tubs of any size, whether the hot tub in question is designed for one person or two people.
Three major functions of any hot tub
There are three major functions of any hot tub.
The first of these functions is relaxation. Nothing relaxes the body better than a hot tub, and most hot tub owners usually own one for this reason and this reason only.
Intimacy is the second function. There is a reason why a good amount of scenes in movies and TV entail a hot tub. That’s because in most cases, intimacy and relaxation go hand in hand.
Nothing beats having a hot tub when it comes to hosting social events. Similar to the intimacy example, how many scenes in movies and TV that depict people having a good time involve a hot tub? Quite a few.
Keeping these in mind, read on to explore three decoration options for your hot tub that anybody can utilize.back to menu ↑
Candles are a staple when it comes to any form of home decor, and this is truer than ever when it comes to indoor hot tubs.
Just like indoor hot tubs have many functions in the home, candles also serve many functions when it comes to placing them around your indoor hot tub.
Relaxation is one function of an indoor hot tub, and what else accompanies relaxation more than candles? Numerous studies have proved that candles around any environment lowers anxiety levels and are very useful when you are trying to relax.
Relaxing in a hot tub is a perfect way to spend some intimate time with your partner. This experience is made even better when candles are lit around the hot tub.
Lighting is yet another function that candles can provide. This adds to the relaxing or intimate processes, as it is a lot easier to relax in a dimly room than a well lit or completely dark room.
It is well established that candles will enhance any hot tub. Here is the $50,000 question when it comes to candles: Which candles should be used and how should they be placed?
If you intend to use candles for lighting, get bigger candles that have no scent. Scented candles tend to burn out quickly. While candles can be used for lighting, there is another option, which will be explored later.
That leaves relaxation and intimacy, which often go hand in hand. For these situations, you want to use scented candles, but resist the temptation to place them all around the tub. Usually, two or three strategically placed candles is enough.
The best thing about candles when it comes to decorating is that they themselves can usually be decorated. It is easy to find any kind of device that candles can fit into that will enhance their own aesthetics.back to menu ↑
Wait a minute.
Neon signs surrounding a hot tub? How does that work?
Customizable neon signs, that’s how it works.
Earlier, I mentioned that candles can be used for lighting a hot tub area. Neon signs can do the exact same thing and can also provide a much different look to your hot tub area than just candles.
It is now possible to completely customize any given neon sign that you order, and then mounting and placing it anywhere around your hot tub.
The only objection to this is if your hot tub is in a tight space. If this is the case, you may want to just utilize the other two options.back to menu ↑
If your hot tub is in a bathroom, there is a good chance that said the bathroom is rather large. Therefore, it is possible to adorn the walls surrounding your hot tub with any kind of wall art.
Do all you can to make sure this wall art relates to the theme of relaxation. It wouldn’t be fitting to have wall art that depicts something that is not relaxing.
If you decide to do this, make sure the wall art is not too large. Having a 36 inch painting overlooking your hot tub may appear impressive, but it can crowd whatever room your hot tub is located in.
Another thing to watch out for is how many pictures, posters, or any other kind of wall art surrounds your hot tub. Again, resist the temptation to crowd the entire room. Usually, one or two well placed pieces of wall art is perfect.
Decorating your hot tub and the areas around it does not need to be difficult. It is very simple and it does not cost much. These three options should give you plenty of ideas about how to make your hot tub and the area around it look much better than it does now.
