5 Must Have Hot Tub Makeover Ideas
Summer is just around the corner and what better way to soak up the sunshine and relax active muscles than enjoying your hot tub? But maybe that hot tub you’ve frequently used over the years is looking a bit worn down. Or maybe, you’d just like to add a few new features to enjoy with friends and family. We’ve got 5 easy hot tub makeover ideas to give your hot tub a summer update:
1. Get a new cover.
When your hot tub is not in use, one of the first things to go is the cover. After several years of constant exposure to the elements, chances are it looks faded and tired. It may even have lost its waterproof qualities and started absorbing moisture, making it sag and hold pools of water on top. Ultimately, the cover becomes much heavier and therefore, harder to move. Buying a new cover not only dramatically improves the visual appearance of your hot tub, it also improves its functionality. A well-fitted, waterproof cover provides the best insulating abilities, as well as making it a lightweight cover which comes on and off easily.

Add some steps.
Cheap, homemade steps might do the job when you first get your hot tub, but they tend to spoil the ambiance. Adding steps that match the style of your outdoor area can really smarten it up. They also make getting in and out much easier, so it’s a double bonus!
Get a spa sidebar.
If you want to take your hot tub experience to the next level, why not consider purchasing a sidebar? Many hot tub manufacturers produce a range of accessories to match your tub, including drink cabinets, storage units and spa side shelves, making the perfect place to rest your favorite beverage. A few bar stools make the area more sociable for those outside the hot tub, too. If you are a DIY enthusiast, you could even take on the project of making your own bar from scratch.
Get a spa umbrella.
This might sound a bit simple, but a good spa umbrella can give you more opportunities to use your hot tub throughout the year. For example, you want to have a soak in the tub , but don’t want to deal with sunscreen. With an adjustable spa umbrella, the weather no longer has to prevent you from enjoying your hot tub.
Add a sound system.
If you want to listen to your favorite music, but you own an older hot tub that doesn’t have a built-in sound system, there is no need to go out and buy a brand new hot tub. Via a Bluetooth speaker, you can bring music to your ears around the hot tub area, also enabling you to control music without leaving the water. For a more permanent solution, you could install a boat stereo. These are perfect for the job as they are waterproof and easy to fit with some basic tools.
These suggestions should give you some ideas as to how you can give your hot tub a summer update. Whether your budget is big or small, there are many ways you can improve your hot tub experience and freshen up its appearance. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and bring new life to your hot tub!
