The Benefits of Installing a Gazebo Over Your Spa

If you’re looking for a way to enjoy your hot tub with a little more privacy and shelter from the elements, then an outdoor gazebo is just what the doctor ordered. Not only is a gazebo a practical investment to help you enjoy your hot tub to the fullest, it can become a decorative focal point of your yard.

What is a Gazebo?

A gazebo is a freestanding pavilion-like structure with a roof that offers a view on all sides. Gazebos come in a variety of shapes, although the most popular is the more modern square.

A traditional gazebo can be open on the sides or have slats on two or three sides that can be adjusted to let in light or shut it out.

Gazebos can also come with more coverage. Styled similar to a summer house, these fully-enclosed structures have a roof and large screen or sliding glass windows.

What are the Benefits of Installing a Gazebo?

1. Privacy 

If you want the assurance that your neighbors can’t see you when you’re in your hot tub, a backyard gazebo is a wonderful way to give you privacy while also enhancing your landscaping.

The great thing about a gazebo is that you can customize your privacy. You can choose an open structure if all you really want is light coverage courtesy of the roof. If you want more coverage, you can opt for a unit with lower wall panels. This will give you good coverage when you’re sitting in your spa while still allowing you to see out without obstruction. Structures with upper louver sections offer enhanced coverage and can be opened or closed as needed.

2. Protection

Installing your hot tub inside a gazebo enables you to enjoy being out in the fresh air but still be protected from the elements.

In the summer, a gazebo protects you from the hot rays of the sun during the day and the swarm of mosquitoes and other pests when you want to enjoy an evening soak.

As the weather turns cold, you’ll be able to continue to use your spa in comfort. Having a gazebo makes winter soaks far more convenient. Not only are you protected from snow and icy winds, your spa stays dry and free of ice, making year-round spa use far more comfortable.

3. Relaxation

A hot tub is all about relaxation and enjoyment. If you want to take that to the next level, why not consider a gazebo with a bar? Gracing the outside of one lower wall, a bar is the perfect place for setting drinks and snacks. It makes it easy to enjoy some refreshments after exiting the hot tub while also enhancing family gatherings, get-togethers with friends or a hot tub party.
