Creating a Budget for Your Hot Tub Installation

Are you thinking about buying a hot tub?

If so, we can’t say that we blame you! Soaking in a hot tub on a regular basis can result in many health benefits. Not to mention that the right installation can make a wonderful asset to your backyard, improving not only the aesthetics and functionality but the value too! Before we get too ahead of ourselves, every larger home project requires a budget. In this article, we’re going to walk you through the different areas that should be budgeted for and help you create one.

Your Wants and Needs

You may find it useful to divide the items included in your budget into two different sections: wants and needs. If your budget is cutting a little close, you may want to reconsider some of your wants and focus your resources on the needs.

This will help to ensure that the most important costs are taken care of comfortably, such as the initial cost of the hot tub and chemicals, while some of the optional costs can be taken care of at a later date, like backyard furniture or outdoor lighting.

Installation and Landscaping

What kind of installation do you want? Would you like to simply install your hot tub above ground in the middle of your backyard? Or are you planning a built-in installation, where your hot tub is attached to the deck or patio section of your backyard? The kind of installation you plan on having can greatly affect the overall cost.

Once your hot tub has been delivered and installed, you may want to revamp the landscaping. This can include flower gardens, stepping stones, pathways, exterior lighting, water features, or new grass.
