5 questions to ask when picking a gazebo for your outdoor area

A gazebo can be an essential part of enjoying your outside space, especially the hot tub. Providing protection from the elements, as well as enhancing the aesthetics of your garden, a gazebo is a great addition to any set up. But what considerations are there when it comes to choosing the right one?

 

1. Where are you going to put the hot tub gazebo?

The obvious answer is: above the hot tub. However, there are some other factors to consider here too. For example, you’ll need to ensure that the surface is suitable and think about whether you want to install decking with the gazebo. The positioning of the gazebo needs to allow for easy access for maintenance and also for the water lines. Plus, it’s essential to make sure that the dimensions you’re considering for your hot tub gazebo work with the space available.

 

2. What materials will work best?

For most people it’s a straight choice between wood and vinyl. Those who choose vinyl often do so because it’s easier to clean. Wood has a very different finish , aesthetically speaking, and if you want to keep things natural then wood might be the wiser choice.

 

3. How do you feel about the size?

Your hot tub gazebo should look like a natural part of the landscape. If you choose something too large then you could end up with a property that feels overshadowed by it. An over size gazebo may take up all your garden space and leave you no room for anything else. The size of the gazebo also matters in terms of the way that you’re planning to use the hot tub. Make sure it’s big enough to cover the entire tub, as well as any additional areas that you want to have, such as room for changing.

 

4. What kind of design are you looking for?

A hot tub gazebo can be created in any shape or to any set of specifications – in reality, the only limitations are the space available and the ability of the contractor you work with to build it. For example, you’ll have a very wide choice of shapes when it comes to the gazebo – round, octagonal and square, to name just a few. You might want to have a very simple and minimal hot tub gazebo or you may be looking to make it a design feature with an ornate roof and detailed features.

 

5. Who is going to make it for you?

It’s essential to make sure that you have the right team working with you to create your perfect hot tub gazebo. The right people will be able to meet your expectations, both when it comes to the cost of building the gazebo and the design itself.

 

A gazebo can make a big difference, both to the way that you use the hot tub and in terms of what it adds to the aesthetics of your property. Asking the key questions to get the right design and finish is essential. Browse our full range of Enclosures today.
