Create the Perfect “Outdoor Room” for Your Hot Tub


Outdoor rooms are one of today's most desirable design trends and an ideal way to enhance your hot tub experience. By creating a personalized outdoor oasis with your hot tub at the center, you'll have more space for relaxation, entertainment, barbecues, and family time. Whether you want a private, intimate space or an inviting area for guests, there are a wide variety of outdoor room designs for every lifestyle.

In this post, you'll learn how to create an incredible outdoor room of your own.


Understand Your Style


Whether your style is rustic, casual, eclectic, or sophisticated, your outdoor room should match it. Consider the design style in the rest of your home or the feeling you'd like to create with your outdoor room before you start designing it. Below are five interior design basics you should think about.


Floor Coverings: There are many ways to utilize decks, hardscapes, gardens, and lawns to create a specific atmosphere for your outdoor room. Think about how you'll utilize these areas and what kinds of floor coverings you can use under or near the hot tub to create the right mood.


Wall Decor: By using screens, gazebos, trellises, and hanging plants, you can create a beautiful natural space. Carefully consider the wall decor you choose, including colours and themes that suit your style.


Lighting: Think about whether you want bold, colourful lighting for entertaining at night or softer, more subdued lighting to create a relaxed or intimate experience. There are many hot tub dealers who have a wide variety of lighting options, so that can be a good place to start.


FurnishingsYour furnishings should match the style you've created in the rest of the outdoor room. Carefully choose fabrics and colours that will enhance the atmosphere. Patio tables and chairs, planters, and other decorative pieces can add charm and functionality to your outdoor room.


Accessories: Accessories are a must for creating the right outdoor room for you. If you're creating a space for entertaining, consider a full bar with stools and an outdoor stereo system. For a family-friendly area, a full outdoor kitchen or barbeque area might be just what you need.


Simple Design Options


Although an outdoor room may sound complicated, it can be as simple as you want it to be. In fact, you may be able to find creative ways to modify your current landscape without hiring a professional landscaper.


If you need assistance in the beginning stages of planning, contact your local pool and spa dealer. They may be able to help you with more than you realize.
