The Jacuzzi is a brand name derived from the name of its creator, Roy Jacuzzi. You are free to choose its location, either indoors or outdoors. So, the balneotherapy practiced there is called a spa. Having a Jacuzzi at home allows all family members to enjoy the benefits of the spa and the moments of conviviality.
However, for its installation, the question of budget is not to be neglected, whether it is a purchase on the Internet or in physical stores. Several factors must be considered. The following points will help you to see more clearly.
The type of hot tub you want to buy
Before you make a decision, it’s important to know the benefits it will bring you, the investment you’ll need to make, and your lifestyle. In any case, you can choose between :
1. The above-ground Jacuzzi
This one can be installed inside or outside: on the terrace, in the garden or in a room of the house, in short, according to your desires. It measures approximately 90 to 120 cm in height, with a 150 to 240 cm diameter.
An above-ground Jacuzzi costs about 10,750 dollars. In this category, there are portable above-ground spas that are gaining more and more popularity in recent years. Many of them are already in wooden kits, which can be assembled with ease. Then there is the inflatable above-ground spa which is the most practical and economical of all. It is known for its simplicity and ease of installation.
On the other hand, the above-ground swim spa looks a bit like a small pool. As the name suggests, it is specifically designed for swimming. Unlike the portable and inflatable above-ground spa, this one can be semi-buried or buried.
2. The built-in Jacuzzi
This one can also be installed indoors or outdoors, embedded, semi-embedded, or placed on the ground. By completely embedding your spa, it is possible to create a relaxing environment that is both discreet and zen. If you install it outside, it allows you to have a clear view. Also, choose a good location to beautify your space because it can not be changed once installed.
The price of delivery and transportation
You still have to pay for delivery or rent a means of transportation after ordering your hot tub from a store, whether online or physically, except that the seller pays for these. This implies considerable additional expenses. It can also happen that during the delivery, the goods can be damaged on the way, which is not at the expense of the seller, of course.
Don’t forget to think about the accessories. Depending on the type of spa, you usually need a full cover to cover your hot tub when not in use. It costs about $145. You also need floating speakers, which cost between 30 and 70 dollars. You can also have an essential oil or perfume diffuser to put some atmosphere in your bathroom. It is available in electric and other models, and you can choose according to your tastes.
The cost of installation
Generally, in order to install a Jacuzzi at home, you should plan to spend between 5,000 dollars and 25,000 dollars (including VAT), including the cost of installation, which varies between 1,000 dollars and 2,000 dollars.
Some people don’t really think about their bathroom or shower situation when buying their dream house. This is a red flag in our books because you will be using your bathroom daily and even a couple of times a day.
Because of this, your shower and bathroom game should be top-level and shouldn’t be something that you think about last minute. I take a long bath to relax every other day, I get myself a good glass of wine and my current read, and I just lay there in my bathtub relaxing. For me, this is what self-love and care look like.
A tub is a perfect addition to your home, and it is something worth investing in, in our humble opinion. In my books, a tub is more glamorous than your common shower, and I used my tub to relax and de-stress after a long day at work. However, the price of a bathtub may deter some people from considering it as a viable opinion but trust me, it’s worth it, especially if you love taking long baths.
