Create the Ultimate Spa Experience with Hot Tub Accessories

Having a hot tub in your backyard helps create a retreat experience, but did you know that by adding some spa accessories you can make the area even more fun, usable, and versatile? It’s true. And we’re not just taking about the typical hot tub accessories everyone knows about (although we have those too.) Below, you’ll find a list of accessories that range from practical to decorative to just plain fun.

Are you ready to find out how you can truly customize your spa area to make it the place of your dreams? Let’s dive in and explore your options.

Covers

Hot tub covers are just what they sound like: a “lid” for your tub. These spa covers help keep debris out of the hot tub, prevent water from evaporating, keep the water warm, provide a safety barrier for children and pets, and by protecting the water from the outside elements, they help maintain the delicate chemical balance that ensures your hot tub water is safe and clean.

You may receive a hot tub cover when you purchase your spa, but you can choose to upgrade it for increased benefits. For example, by purchasing a hot tub cover with a higher R-Value, which gives greater heat retention, the water will remain at consistent temperatures and you’ll conserve more energy.

Other choices include hard hot tub covers, which offer increased durability, insulated covers that retain heat, covers with straps to resist high winds, lightweight polyester cover caps, which are easy to handle and store, and solar blankets that add a layer of insulation under hard covers.

Care and Maintenance

In addition to décor, relaxation, and fun, you’ll need some accessories to help take care of your hot tub. Spa accessories like leaf skimmers, rakes, vacuums, chemicals, filters, hot tub pads, floating chemical dispensers, and thermometers are all useful accessories that will make taking care of spa easier.

Cover Lifts

Adding a spa cover lift will not only make it easier to move the cover out of the way, but it will also keep it off the ground, which will extend its life. These lifts make it easier to slip into the spa for a late night soak.

Hot tub cover lifts come is several styles:

  • Basic manual cover lifts. These lifts work well for small spas or for those that are located in tight spaces. You lift the cover manually, aided by the aluminum brackets and frames, and it stays open at a tilt until you’re ready to close it.
  • Privacy manual cover lifts. If you want privacy when soaking in your spa, you can set these covers to the vertical height you want in order to create a “wall” between the outside world and the hot tub. When opening the cover, you simply adjust the height of the “wall” to give you complete privacy, or create a semi-private atmosphere with a partial view.
  • Full-view manual cover lifts. If you’d rather keep an eye on children, talk to people outside of the tub, or just gaze at your backyard oasis, this cover lift folds completely out of site by stacking behind the spa.
  • Hydraulic mount cover lifts. If you don’t want to exert any energy when opening your spa, a hydraulic lift might be the answer for you. The lift is powered by gas springs that do all the work for you, and has the added benefit of closing the cover securely every time so you’ll never have to worry about heat release.

Custom Steps

Slipping into your spa shouldn’t feel like a chore. Adding a set of steps can make your hot tub more accessible and enjoyable for everyone. Details like non-slip surfaces, UV protection, and handrails ensure safety and durability, and a variety of color options allow you to coordinate your steps with your décor. You can even choose steps that include storage areas for things like towels or chemicals.

Cabinet Kits

Is your spa looking a little dated? Breathe new life into an aging hot tub with a cabinet kit. Want to add a touch of understated elegance? Choose a color like deep gray, espresso or black for a sophisticated look. Want to transition from an old-school wood cabinet to something more modern and durable? Opt for a cabinet kit made of hardy, low-maintenance composite. Whatever option you choose, most cabinet kits are easy to install, making them an easy DIY project.

Gazebos and pergolas

If you want to create a warm and inviting environment for your hot tub area, consider using a square or triangle sail shade, a spa umbrella that attaches to the side of your hot tub, decorative panels you can use to surround the spa, or a pergola to make your hot tub the centerpiece of your yard. In addition to enhancing your environment, a gazebo or pergola can also add privacy.

Outdoor TV

There is nothing more luxurious than soaking in a hot tub while watching a movie under the stars. But most televisions wouldn’t last long outside in the elements. Hot tub televisions on the other hand, are specifically designed with Nano-coating technology to withstand the elements and provide years of outdoor entertainment.

Outdoor Speakers

Today’s outdoor speakers offer endless possibilities. Want great sound -- without the need for bulky equipment and wires? Choose speakers disguised as terra cotta planters or natural-looking rocks that blend into your garden area. Want a multi-tasker? Opt for Bluetooth speakers that double as USB ports so you can charge your cellphone as you enjoy a late night soak. Looking for something sleek and modern? Opt for a compact subwoofer that can be discreetly integrated into the yard.

Lighting

The easiest way to create the ambiance you want in your hot tub area is with the use of outdoor lighting. LED lighting can create the perfect atmosphere by mimicking Tiki torches or flickering lanterns. Enhance the area even more by adding LED lights along the path leading to the hot tub.

You can also make a splash by adding underwater lights to your spa. They will create a one-of-a-kind multi-colored underwater light show to dazzle everyone soaking in the tub.

Turn up the Heat

If you like sitting in a hot tub while the snow is falling all around you, add to the ambiance by creating a virtual fireplace next to the spa. These heating elements can be installed inside a simulated fireplace, or other recessed spaces. The energy efficient heating system provides a virtual fire to warm you up as you soak away while the cold rages on around you.

Aromatherapy

Looking for a way to make your hot tub experience even more indulgent? Choose from a wide array of aromatherapy products that will soothe the senses. Specially formulated hot tub bath bombs and scented oils add fragrance -- without any residue or buildup. Want to soak away stress, aches and pains? and aromatherapy or a spa-like experience in your own backyard, treat yourself to bath crystals made of natural extracts, vitamins, and minerals.

And, with a vast array of available fragrances, you can find just the right option to match your mood -- from tropical, island-inspired scents like coconut and mango to clean and classic scents like fresh rain and lavender.

Food, Fun, and Games

Up your spa game and impress your guests with a near-endless array of accessories: Kick back in comfort with inflatable hot tub pillows, and add fun extras like a floating drink tray (it doubles as a game board when it’s flipped over!), a floating food bar, waterproof playing cards, and shatterproof polycarbonate drinkware. With accessories like this, you may never want to take the party inside.

Care and Maintenance

In addition to décor, relaxation, and fun, you’ll need some accessories to help take care of your hot tub. Spa accessories like leaf skimmers, rakes, vacuums, chemicals, filters, hot tub pads, floating chemical dispensers, and thermometers are all useful accessories that will make taking care of spa easier.
