Lots of people have a gazebo in their garden, but how many of them think of also using it as a spa gazebo? As soon as the good weather comes around everyone wants to be out in their garden for as long as possible. Sometimes you want to be outside but it might actually be too hot or sunny to be un-shaded for too long, so having a gazebo to sit in allows you to remain outside, without being exposed to too much sun.
As mentioned above we’re all very conscious of not being out in strong sunlight too much or too frequently, so a gazebo is an ideal place to retreat to and sit in whilst enjoying the fresh air and views from your garden.
Of course a gazebo can also be useful if you’re having, say a barbeque and it starts raining, you can still stay outdoors to eat you food without getting wet, providing the barbeque itself is near to hand. Finally there’s sitting out on an early summers evening, you can be sat in your garden only to start being plagued by mosquitoes. If you have a gazebo fitted with mosquito nets, you can move in it and carry on enjoying the warm evening air.
If you have a spa, or hot tub, outdoors then putting it in a gazebo, or building a new spa gazebo, can help you to enjoy using the spa. Having an outdoor spa in your garden is already a great and fun way to relax from the stresses and strains of the day. However, just the same as sitting in your garden, the weather can sometimes spoil that enjoyment, especially if the weather is overcast and wet.
Also, if you have neighbors overlooking your garden a truly open-air spa will lack that bit of privacy that you might prefer to have. By putting the spa inside a gazebo you’ll be able to have privacy whilst you’re changing to use it, privacy whilst you’re using it and you can fully enjoy the fresh air without the risk of rain water spoiling your enjoyment, or indeed getting sun burned on your upper body in very hot and sunny weather.
Shoji House Spas
By definition a gazebo is an open sided structure with a roof, so any privacy will be limited to that given by the roof or possible a low wall between the supports for the roof. So, if you want a spa in a gazebo that offers you more privacy and protection then consider a shoji house. These are in effect gazebos with wood panels that can be added or removed from the sides.
So according to the degree of privacy or comfort you want, you can decide how many panels are added or left out. This also means that in the winter or bad weather, you can add all of the panels and still enjoy using your outdoor spa.
You might be interested to know that you can buy surrounds for your spa that can convert the spa into a stylish addition to the gazebo. Typical spa surround kits are made from wood and include a bar, with three or four stools and a step to help getting into and out of the spa.
