If you are having a spa built in your backyard, this spa should be an area that you consider a haven and one that you will be able to enjoy spending your time. It should also be relaxing and comfortable, because this is one of the main purposes of a spa. When you hire a contractor to build your spa for you, the two of you will sit down and discuss what you want your spa to look like and all of the things that you want it to include. This process is fun and exciting, but it is going to require you to do a great deal of brainstorming on your part before you begin your design plan. Here are two great ways to personalize the construction of your spa.
Add A Fireplace
To make your spa even more calming and comfortable, you can have an outdoor fireplace built right next to your spa. This fireplace can be installed inside of a wall that is directly connected to your spa, but is far enough away to ensure that you are going to be safe from sparks and from the flames themselves. You can line the outside of your spa, as well as the wall that the fireplace is built into, with beautiful stones of your choice that create a classy and timeless finish that is going to not only look great, but also be long-lasting and weather resistant. You will really enjoy watching the fire while you are in the spa, and it will keep those who aren't inside of the spa warm as well.
Incorporate A Manmade Waterfall
Another awesome way to personalize the construction of your spa, is to have a manmade waterfall built that runs directly unto your spa. To create this waterfall, your contractor is going to need to first create a hill that comes down from your spa and then creates the waterfall structure using large stones and smaller rocks. You are going to be a key part of this process because you will determine the size of the waterfall, the stones and rocks used, and more. The electrical and plumbing work will also need to be done properly to ensure that the water runs into the waterfall, then into your spa, and finally drains into a location that then allows it to be pumped back up to the top of the waterfall once again. Your contractor will be able to do all of this for you and will create a unique and gorgeous waterfall.
