Whether you have plans to build a pool with an attached spa, or are simply interested in a hot tub for your backyard, you’ll have a lot of different options. From style and design to configuration and components, there are a lot of decisions to be made about getting exactly what you have in mind. Much like shopping for a car, prioritizing your wants and needs will help you to determine what direction to go. Have a family or entertain often? You’ll want a larger spa. Do you have back or muscle pain? You’ll want to include a therapy jets. While these are only a few considerations, here is what goes into designing and building a high-end spa for your home.

Whether you opt for a spa, a spool, or a pool with an attached spa, gunite offers the most versatility in terms of design and style. Gunite is a concrete solution that allows for elaborate pool and spa designs, as well as simple, clean styling. This durable material lasts and holds up well over time.

The design and placement of your spa’s jets can make a huge difference as well. Therapy jets can be used to help increase circulation, promoting muscle relaxation. Floor jets are a great option for relaxing your feet and legs.

The aesthetic options for your spa are nearly limitless. With a custom design the color and styling can be matched to your exact taste. Other elements like LED pool lighting, waterfalls, and other water features can be included as well.

Depending on the size of your yard, a popular option is to expand the size of your spa beyond the traditional specifications, making it large enough for eight to ten people. This larger spa, or “spool” can be configured in a number of ways to accommodate your needs. It can be kept unheated for swimming in the summer, and heated for use in the winter as well.

No matter the size or shape, there are a number of options and ideas that can enhance your backyard with the construction of a custom spa. Lucas Firmin Pools builds and services pools and spas in the Baton Rouge area.
