What Size Hot Tub is Right for Your Home?

Choosing the spa for your home and family can seem like a big task. They come in different shapes, colors, sizes, with different features, and more. One of the most important things you need to think about when selecting your new hot tub, is what size is right for your home and all the people who will be using it. We are here to help.

There are really two major things you need to think about when deciding on what size hot tub is right for your home. We break them down below.

How much space you have available for the spa. Before you can purchase your new hot tub, you need to know where you intend to put it and then measure to determine what size will fit. Keep in mind that you also need to make sure there is room to add hot tub steps, you are able to open the access panel, there is space to get to all sides of the spa should it need serviced, and there is room to add any other furniture or accessories you may want in the space. Don’t forget to measure doors and gates to ensure your spa will get through those as well. Where you put your new spa and what that space will allow is key to selecting the right size hot tub.

How many people will be using the hot tub at a time. Spas come in many different sizes with a different number of seats. You can select a spa with as few as two seats to as many as eight or more. Most people select a medium-sized hot tub that seats between four and six people. If you plan on inviting people over to enjoy your spa, have a large family, or just enjoy more space to move around, you will likely want to select a hot tub with eight seats or more. To put this decision into perspective, a six seat spa normally fits four people comfortably, so just because there are seats for everyone you think will be in the hot tub at the same time, does not mean everyone will fit easily. It’s better to go bigger than you need, so no one is left out in the cold or having to take turns.

When it comes to determining what size hot tub is right for you home, you really need to think about where it will be going and the dimensions of that space, and how many people you plan on having enjoying it at one time. Once you have decided on the size you need, you can get into selecting the shape, color, features, and any additional accessories you would like to add.
