Custom Spa and Hot Tub Design
The ancient Romans and Greeks understood the importance of hydrotherapy. A spa provides full relaxation to the body, but that is not the only thing they offer. Water has a very therapeutic and health restoring value that cannot be found many places. Combining hydrotherapy, hydro massages and the soothing sounds that come from water create a place for the body to rejuvenate. Spas are perfect for creating a romantic setting or a place of entertainment for friends and family. A swimming pool falls short when there is no hot water to go with it, especially in the winter nights.

Spas are popular additions to incorporate into a pool, but can also be a stand -alone feature. Spa design takes a crucial role in the overall design of pool landscapes. The spa is what will reflect the character of the landscape surrounding it and can add to the architecture of the home it is being built on; this is a chance where people can reflect their taste. It can become a work of art; similar to a sculpture.
Spas are often combined into a pool and used to generate water features where the two bodies of water connect. Original pool designs that included a spa had a distinct wall separating the two bodies of water. Nowadays people are creating a more modern look by having the wall disappear. The wall that separates the spa from the pool water tops out only millimeters under the surface of the pool water. This allows for their to be no visible difference between the two creating a sleek new look.
Custom spas are ideal for any location; whether commercial or residential, on the ground or a rooftop. Hence, the possibilities are limitless.
Some features to consider when designing a spa are:
- Size and shape
- The number of hydrotherapy jets,
- Tile, ceramic or glass
- Custom design or standard design
- Different choices of water features
- Seating configurations
In addition, spas can include specialty lighting and waterfalls.
Different types of spas:
- Gunite Spa – Similar to a pool but smaller.
- Fiberglass Spa – Made with a fiberglass spa shell (most affordable)
- Spools – Larger spa built to accommodate 8 to 10 people
As a result, each spa has the possibility to be truly unique in its design. That is what makes custom design spas so fun!
