If you have made the decision to purchase a hot tub, you now need to determine where you want that hot tub to go. When choosing the location for your hot tub, you want to choose someplace that is easy to access but will also provide you with the privacy you need as well as space to entertain.

#1: Path of the Sun

First, you are going to want to consider the path the sun takes through your property. You want to choose a location for your hot tub where the sun will warm up the space, especially if you want to enjoy your hot tub during the early morning or afternoon hours. All your hot tubing doesn't have to take place after dark, so make sure your hot tub is placed somewhere where it will be warm enough to enjoy during the day without having the sun blind you.

#2: Ease of Access

Second, you need to consider how easy to will be for you to get in and out of the hot tub. You are going to want to make sure you locate the hot tub somewhere so that you can easily hop in and out of the hot tub from multiple different sides of the hot tub. Don't put your hot tub in a space where it could limit mobility.

#3: Access to Utilities

Third, you need to consider your ability to access utilities. You will need to fill your hot tub up with water, so you will want it near a faucet. If you want to get water delivered to fill your hot tub, it would need to be located so that a water truck could get to it. Your hot tub will need power, so you need to be near some outside electrical outlets as well.

#4: Privacy

Fourth, you need to consider how much privacy you want. Do you want to enjoy your hot tub nude? Do you want to enjoy your hot tub in a bathing suit without feeling like you are being watched? If you want privacy, you may want to place your hot tub somewhere where you can block the neighbor's view. For example, maybe you place your hot tub near a tall hedge, or maybe you place where hot tub somewhere where you can put up lattice for more privacy.

#5: Entertainment

Finally, you need to consider if you want to use the hot tub as a form of entertainment and socialization with friends. If you want to use your hot tub when you have people over, you may want your hot tub connected to your patio or other outdoor space to allow for easier socialization.

When considering where to put your hot tub, take into consideration practical considerations, such as the path of the sun and access to utilities, as well as more functional concerns, such as ease of access, entertainment value, and privacy. A hot tub is heavy and hard to move, so you want to get the location correct from the start.
