Choosing a Hot Tub Size That Works for You

Hot tubs come in a variety of sizes that are meant not just for different numbers of people, but also to fulfill unique needs that you might have for your hot tub in order to enjoy it the way that you want to. Which hot stub size is right for you? We’ll walk you through all of the things you should consider before you come to a conclusion. 

Number of People 

How many people would you like to enjoy your hot tub at a time? You can get hot tubs intended for two people to eight people from Oakville Home Leisure. The real limiting factor on the number of people that will fit in the tub is the footwell. This middle spot in the tub is where everyone’s feet go. The more comfortable everyone is with touching feet, then the more people you can fit in the tub. 

Two-person hot tubs are the smallest and typically have space for two people to sit, but not lounge. Four-person hot tubs typically have four seats, one of which is a lounger where one person can lay out. Five-person hot tubs have five seats with no loungers. Lastly, six to eight people hot tubs may have room for up to eight people, again depending on how much foot room you need. 

You can also get round hot tubs in many sizes. They don’t have defined seats but are great options if you’re comfortable being right next to the person you’re sharing the water with.

Your Unique Needs 

The number of people isn’t the only factor in your decision. One important thing to consider if you’ll be using your hot tub for hydrotherapy or to treat a condition you have is how much room you’ll need for that experience. Even if you’re the only person who will be using the hot tub, you may need a four-person or bigger hot tub just to get the lounger spot so that you can sit back. 

If you’re a tall person or expect to have tall guests in your tub, you may want a hot tub without a lounger. These have larger footwells that can give tall people the extra clearance that they need. 

Not sure if the hot tub size you have in mind will work for you? Just try it out.  

The Space in Your Yard 

Is there enough space in your yard for the hot tub that you want? It’s wise to pull out the measuring tape and check before you commit to a specific size.
