Your hot tub is a great spot to unwind after a long day, but shade and privacy can make the space more comfortable and enjoyable. Consider these hot tub privacy ideas to help you enjoy your hot tub again.
Trees and Umbrellas
Trees are a beautiful source of natural shade, but leaves and other debris can fall into the water. Over time, tree roots can also cause damage to your hot tub.
An umbrella is the simplest, most portable solution, as long as you can find an umbrella large enough and there’s no wind!
Gazebos and Pavillions
A gazebo offers an enclosure, usually with no walls. You get plenty of fresh air, and attractive gazebos look great in your yard. A pavilion provides a permanent roof over your hot tub to block the sun. Like a gazebo, it has no walls to deter bugs.
Canopies and Pergolas
A canopy has four posts and a canvas or fabric roof to keep your hot tub out of the sun, and you can take them down at the end of the season. Some canopies also come with screens to protect you from insects.
Pergolas have four posts and a roof, usually made from fabric. They can be large enough to cover your hot tub and may come with one or multiple fabric sides to block wind and sunlight.
Retractable awnings offer a flexible shade solution If your hot tub is near another structure. You can have shade on hot days or open skies when you want to enjoy the sun or watch the stars at night.
Enclosures and Sunrooms
Hot tub enclosures allow you to create a separate space for your enjoyment. Your hot tub can be free from bugs and debris with screen enclosures, or you can enjoy protection from UV rays with shades.
Sunrooms provide a bright room that keeps your hot tub away from bugs. Since these spaces have large glass panels and warm quickly, you may want motorized shades for privacy and comfort while you soak.
