As housing sizes trend away from the McMansions of the last decade and toward smaller, more intimate homes, families are looking for new ways to maximize the space they have. This includes better utilization of yards, porches, terraces, and decks. Transforming outdoor space so that it serves as an additional room of the home is becoming increasingly popular, and the addition of a hot tub, spa, or jacuzzi can give the area a sense of relaxation and luxury.
The right hot tub, spa, or jacuzzi can increase a home's value, improve a yard's aesthetic and enhance quality of life. The three main types are above-ground acrylic hot tubs, wooden hot tubs, and in-ground spas:
- Acrylic hot tubs are the most popular, have a variety of options and styles, and typically range in price from $3,000 to $10,000.
- Wooden hot tubs are aesthetically pleasing and slightly less expensive--priced between $1,500 and $7,000--but they can require more maintenance.
- In-ground spas, which are often priced at $5,000 and above, add the most value to a home since they become permanently installed features.
There are a variety of high-quality hot tub brands on the market today, so do a bit of research to ensure your selection has the size, look, feel, and price to fit your family. The addition of any hot tub or jacuzzi to a home has the potential to improve a family's lifestyle, as it introduces regular relaxation and quality time into otherwise busy schedules.
