3. Emphasize Esthetics

Consider what the hot tub will look like when it has finally been installed. Will it stick out like a sore thumb or look like an afterthought in the backyard? Also keep an open-mind. An above-ground hot tub on a concrete pad may not sound like the sexiest option, but with a little thought and the right landscaping, these installations can look spectacular.

4. Consider Your Sight Lines

When you have decided on a particular model, place a picture of the hot tub in the installation plan and determine which way the main seats/loungers will be facing. Many homeowners don’t consider this and end up with a hot tub in which the main seats face the back wall of the house.
