The Ultimate Guide to Creating Your Dream Outdoor Space

After a long year of being secluded to our homes, many of us are looking for an oasis of sorts… Somewhere to relax, reduce stress, and just enjoy each other’s company. 

The good news – you don’t have to travel thousands of miles and spend an exorbitant amount on one time airfare in order to obtain serenity. 

By creating a gorgeous and well thought out awe-inspiring backyard, you’re allowed to step just outside your home, and take in all the wonders of nature. Now, with the help of modern luxuries, we make the experience all the more pleasurable.

Installing a hot tub, swim spa or swimming pool can add a variety of qualities to your life in the following ways:

  • Additional space to spend time with family and friends
  • Enjoying spending more time outside 
  • Regularly partake in self care
  • Boost the monetary and aesthetic value of your home

We’re breaking down a detailed step-by-step guide on how to create the outdoor space that many homeowners only dream of. 

Research and Planning

Diligent research and logistics are necessary in order to achieve your one-of-a-kind backyard. With many different options available, you’ll want to choose the best products for your specific yard, as each property is special.

Whether your backyard is urban, expansive, or a small balcony or deck, there’re many different options available. You’ll want to consider the best layout for your space, furniture arrangements that make sense, along with access to necessary power outlets.

The Small Balcony

This little piece of heaven, extending from your home, should feel cozy and comfortable. The challenge is limited room in this scaled-down space. Searching for small tables, chairs, and compact furniture is key.

At Jacuzzi Hot Tubs of Charlotte, we have many Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs available that meet tight measurement restrictions so as to add a layer of sophistication and top-notch relaxation for these petite spaces. 

The Patio

This clearing offers a lovely setting to gather outdoors with lots of lawn space. Many patios provide an enclave for both visiting and the solitude of relaxation. You’ll want to create a multipurpose layout that’s truly an extension of the yard. 

A Jacuzzi® Swim Spa is the perfect addition to this outdoor piece of your home. It provides room for swim activities while fitting charmingly into the parameters of this space. 

The Deck

Decks tend to be an extension of the kitchen while meeting other needs, such as a dining room or a soak up the sunspot. Decks vary in scope. They can be large or small depending on the size of the lot. While sticking to lighter and smaller furniture, a hot tub could be the finishing touch to this space.

They can provide health benefits such as improved sleep, full-body detoxification, and boosted immunity. You can’t go wrong with this little slice of heaven on your back deck.

Townhouse Backyard

A narrow lot that you want to lay out in a way that sets you apart from your neighbors. Although these spaces are narrow, there’s a great potential for creativity and appeal. Since these zones are generally more open, larger furnishings are acceptable. 

Depending on what the townhome association allows, a hot tub and swim spa are both lovely options for this special place. Both offer natural privacy in a crowded townhome community, and the opportunity to escape to a romantic backyard getaway with your partner. Make it personalized with cool weatherproof string lights to add ambiance.

Open-Concept Backyard

This type of backyard provides for lounging, easy conversation, and outdoor dining without feeling claustrophobic. This expanse should be ergonomic and highly functional for lounging and eating.

In this space, you can certainly go big and install a swimming pool or all season pool. Not every property has the yardage for this type of fun, so take advantage of the available spaciousness and go all out.

With strength and durability in mind, investing in an all season pool or swimming pool is truly a great way to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Endless hours of fun water sports for the family and making connections are sure to be had.

Explore the Different Options Available to You

Now that you’ve identified the type of yard you have and done some initial research and planning for the type of products that would work best in those spaces, you’ll want to explore which different options truly meet your needs. 

By shopping for backyard leisure products from our experts at Jacuzzi Tubs of Charlotte – every day is sure to be a staycation. We offer top-notch, sustainable swimming pools, swim spas, and hot tubs. So what’s the difference between each of these? Inquiring minds ask and we answer.
