In recent years, the visual aesthetics of hot tubs has changed dramatically. Gone are the days of big, brown boxes sitting in backyards. Instead, homeowners and commercial venues including hotels and health clubs, are moving towards customized models.
This trend stems from a desire to make the exterior of our homes an extension of the interior. Consumers are turning to outdoor furniture, gazebos and landscape design to convey their personal style. In terms of a hot tub, this means breaking outside the traditional mould.
At recent swimming pool and hot tub expos across North America, consumers are discovering choices now range from portable spas, to gunite models with jet packs, to fully customized builds. Unlike traditional portable spas, gunite and customized builds allow homeowners to accent their tub with cascading waterfalls, raised exteriors and unique finishes. All told, consumers can showcase their personal style, while ensuring the end product is complimentary to the home.
If you are looking at a modern alternative to the portable hot tub, the team at Hot Tub Covers Canada strongly suggests working with a reputable design and build company. You can connect with the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada at http://www.poolcouncil.ca/ and use their handy Member locator.
