Read on for a few wonderful tips on how to set up a home spa with a low budget.

Tips To Set Up A Home Spa
  • Use natural materials to decorate home spas for serenity.
  • Paint or tile the spa walls completely white. Place blue and green items against the walls. This will help calm your senses and give you what you need, a closer-to-nature experience.
  • Consider installing a portable fireplace or portable fire stones. This will help during the colder months. It can also add to the relaxing and romantic ambience of your spa.
  • You may also want to install a tabletop bubbling fountain. This will let you gain access to the calming sounds of running water, indoors!
  • If you have enough money, cascading effects can be achieved by installing a wide waterfall faucet.
Bathtubs And Shower Types
  • Choose bathtubs that are extra-long and deep for a much more relaxing experience.
  • Some of the tubs feature both jets and air bubble systems, but this mostly depends on your choice.
  • For small spaced spas, using narrower Japanese soaking tubs can prove to be a good idea. These will allow you to sit submerged in water up to your neck.
  • Showers for home spas come with more than one showerhead and massaging and cascading fixtures.
  • You can save some space by replacing over-sized tubs with sleek, efficient and specialized showerheads and sprays.
  • Tub decks may be used as a bench for shower stalls.
  • Hot tubs can be installed outdoors. Also, if you are newly married, or a hopeless romantic, you can try the longer and narrower ones. These are meant to accommodate two persons at a time, perfect for romance!
  • Two showerheads with multiple settings such as massaging sensations and set to perfect heights are a boon for couples looking forward to having a romantic shower together.
  • A ceiling-mounted rain dome or body jets that spray you with water from head to toe are some of the most popular choices.
Whirlpool Jets And Air Systems
  • Thermostatic or pressure-balance valves help you to regulate the temperature of water while showering.
  • Steam baths are popular features that people like to have in their shower stalls.
  • A bathtub with whirlpool jets controls airflow with variable pressure to help give you a personalized massage. However, you may not be able to use bath oils or salts in such bathtubs.
  • Bath additives can be used along with air bubble systems.
