Creating A Private Space For Your Hot Tub: Three Ideas To Consider

Posted on: 25 May 2019

Having a hot tub in your backyard provides a wonderful space for you to relax and unwind. Having nosy neighbors can make that experience less pleasant, but there are ways you can create a private space in your yard. Here are just some of the many ways you can turn your backyard into a private oasis.

Hot Tub Shelter

If your yard is short on space, you can build a hot tub shelter. This design is similar to a carport, with one open end and three walls. The roof provides shelter from the hot sun and privacy from neighbors in apartment buildings or two-story homes. You can find a variety of designs to choose from, or you can create your own custom shelter. Remember that there should be openings in the wall for power cords if you have a freestanding portable hot tub. Consider planting greenery around the shelter to give your hot tub a more lush and resort-worthy appearance.

Privacy Fence

You may also opt to keep your entire yard secluded with a privacy fence. This option provides free use of your outdoor space without concern for prying eyes. However, you may need to get permission from your local municipality and immediate neighbors before building. If you aren't sure about the rules and regulations regarding high fences in your area, talk to a contractor. He or she can help you navigate sizing requirements, permits, and other regulations. Once your fence is complete, consider accessorizing the area around the hot tub with towel racks, planters, and other decor pieces to truly make your yard feel like an escape from the outside world.

Cabana Curtains

For a more upscale look, consider adding Cabana Curtains around your hot tub. This look can be achieved by building a simple frame to hold the curtains, but it can also involve a more elaborate setup. For example, you can build a pergola over the hot tub and hang curtains on all sides. The pergola's top should have an adjustable design to block out or allow in the sun, depending on your preferences. This option is perfect for a hot tub on the deck, as you can build a pergola to match your decking for a beautiful look. If your hot tub is on the deck directly next to your home, you can build a simple curtain setup using two poles and the exterior wall of your home. Add stringed white lights after the curtains or hung to bring a twinkling look for nighttime dips in the hot tub.


A New Summer Style

A couple of months ago, my beautiful, intelligent, and talented sister married her best friend in a simple, church ceremony. On this special day, a hair stylist curled my hair and pinned it on top of my head. Because I normally keep my hair short, I had to grow it out for a few months before the wedding in order to achieve the look I wanted. Now that the wedding is over, my long hair is starting to aggravate me. Due to the summer heat and humidity, it is beginning to break off and look frizzy! I am in desperate need of a new summer style. On this blog, you will discover the best types of haircuts for the steamy, summer months. Enjoy your new look!
