How to Choose the Best Hot Tub Colors for Your New Spa
With so many options now available in spas, it can be tough to know what is going to be the best color choice for your spa. But, as we all know, color choice can make a big difference in the look of your backyard aesthetics. It can change the vibe completely, so you want to be intentional about your choices when it comes to color and design.
Even though a spa isn’t necessarily the same as patio furniture, in this case, it’s not a bad idea to think of it in a similar capacity. It should be as decorative as it is functional, which means you’re going to want to choose color options that tie your other designs together with your house, yard, and other exterior features.
Best Colors for Hot Tub Interior (aka Shell)
While it might be tempting to go with a fun, bright color for your spa interior, simply because you like it, it’s always best to consider what other colors it will be up against once the spa cover comes off. For instance, just because hot pink and red were super popular in the 1970’s, doesn’t mean you should be looking for a hot tub with those colors now. It might sound really fun to own a vintage-looking spa, but how is it going to affect the overall look and feel of your space? (Not to mention spas aren’t made in those colors anymore.)
First, you should take a look at your yard and home. What colors are already present and which spa color options will work well with those colors? Think of your spa shell in a similar way as you think of paint on your interior walls. A light, neutral color is almost always the best choice, since neutrals can go with just about any home exterior. Neutrals are elegant and classic, and you really can’t go wrong.
Bullfrog Spas offer some beautiful neutral options. These colors cover the white, cream, and gray families.
If you’re looking for something a bit bolder, something that makes a bit of a statement, consider colors which cover the gold, black, and marbled gray families. Some colors offer a sort of a go-between option, such as speckled black and white with grays and tans—reminiscent of granite countertops. Just remember to consider what your shell will look like if the water ever creates a buildup line. Darker colors show those more easily, so keep that in mind.
Think walls, or possibly countertops, and what you’d choose to go with the exterior of your home instead of interior.
Best Colors for Hot Tub Exterior (aka Cabinet)
Your cabinet is going to be the most visible portion of your spa, and possibly the most important color choice to get right. If you absolutely hate the exterior color of your spa, that’s a hard thing to get over. Especially if that color clashes with your home, yard, and patio furniture. Luckily, hot tub cabinets are coming in more modern and updated colors, so you have a lot more options than just traditional wood.
That said, wood never goes out of style, so Bullfrog Spas offers a number of wood-looking colors in a more updated, contemporary palate, and again, most are neutral enough to blend with your current home and yard choices.
Hot Tub Cover Color Options
The truth is, spa cover color options are not nearly as wide and varied as the shell and cabinet colors. Most companies offer one or two colors that come standard, depending on your choice of cabinet (exterior) color. The cover is definitely the most visible portion of your spa, aside from the cabinet, so you hope it matches your home well. Because of this, it’s important to find out what color cover is available or standard with each of the cabinet options before you finalize, because if you’re not going to be happy with the cover, that may affect your cabinet color choice.
Other Design Considerations for Your Spa
The truth is colors are just a small portion of your spa design choices. You will also need to choose size, seating options, JetPak options (when purchasing a Bullfrog Spa), water care options, audio and WiFi capabilities, and those are just to name a few. Make sure you consider all aspects when buying the best spa for you.
