Many Florida spa owners choose to purchase and install a hot tub for relaxation and enjoyment. Setting up your new spa is only one step in creating the perfect backyard oasis – while you can certainly enjoy your spa while it simply sits on your patio, putting time and effort into building a serene and inviting environment to surround your spa will help you maximize its benefits!
While it may seem like a challenge to build a spa-like backyard setting when faced daily with hot, humid Florida weather conditions, taking a few simple steps can make a big difference in how you and your guests perceive the spa experience. Below are some suggestions to get you started.
1. The right linens and accessories make a difference
One signature of the spa experience is a nice, cushy robe and a stock of fluffy towels to wrap up in – your backyard oasis need not be any different! A good stock of your favorite towels and comfortable robes will help create an inviting experience, whether you’re alone or enjoying your backyard spa with others.
Keep your linens nearby for easy and convenient access – an outdoor cabinet which is waterproof and stylish will fit right in with your décor while providing functional storage for your spa accessories. An outdoor towel warmer is another touch which will help you create that professional spa experience!
2. Set the mood with the right music
Gentle music and soothing sounds played in the spa environment can set the tone for supreme relaxation. Design a personal playlist of the tunes you enjoy best, or download an app full of soothing sounds and music to be played whenever you step out to the spa. Play through your iPod, smartphone, or docking station connected to an outdoor sound system!
3. Enhance your experience with comfortable scents
Aromatherapy oils and scented candles are a hallmark of the spa experience – it’s easy to bring these items to your home spa in order to recreate that same inviting and relaxing atmosphere! Set up candles which surround your spa, or utilize an oil diffuser nearby.
Certain scents are thought to have properties which affect one’s mood – knowing which do what will help you create an individual spa experience.
- When taking a dip before bedtime, lavender can aid with sleep.
- Scents such as rose, peppermint and jasmine can stimulate the endocrine system, elevating your mood.
- Citrus scents are invigorating and energizing.
- Floral scents will help you create a romantic atmosphere.
4. Create a comfortable outdoor seating area
Being in the spa isn’t the only way to enjoy it – your spa’s surroundings can also be a comfortable retreat! In the nearby area, select comfortable outdoor furniture to provide a place for relaxation before and after spa use, or simply a location to enjoy a good read and get some vitamin D on a sunny Florida day!
