|Designing your spa
A spa that is situated in its own private environment away from
the pool can still seem connected to it, at least aesthetically. In naturalistic designs,
for example, the spa often takes the form of a small pond or hot spring sequestered from
the main pool. While a spa can be designed as a miniature version of the pool and placed
within its perimeter, it can also assume a completely different shape and reside away from
It is best if an integrated spa is constructed of the
same materials as the pool so that it doesn't appear to be an after-thought. If located
off to one side, the spa should complement the pool's geometry.
Space is also one of the major considerations when
planning for a new hot tub or spa. Ask this questions:
- How many people will be using the spa?
- Is it just for family, or do you plan to entertain guests?
This will help determine the size and shape of spa that
will work best for you. Round spas and freeform spas with curved radiuses seat more people
than square spas with right angles, because round-shaped spas permit their users to fully
utilize all of their interior space. The style and amount of the hydro-therapy jets to be
used as well as variable bench heights and loungers are also optional. A popular trend now
are "Body Tubes", deep narrow spaces on the side of the spa, where you can enjoy
jets from neck to toe while standing upright. Lighting keeps a spa safe and enhances it's
design. Popular options include colour-changing lights in quartz halogen, LED or Fiber
