Most people opt for a hot tub on their deck, or somewhere in the back yard. The thing is, most of the time a hot tub doesn’t add much visual appeal to the landscape. A four foot high square object needs a bit of attention in order to elevate its design. A simple answer is to build a custom tub, but that’s also expensive. Some homeowners opt to install the tub in a recessed area, with wood or stone surrounding it so that it’s flush, and blended in with its surroundings. Others get more creative. From boats that have been converted into floating tubs, to the custom-made to resemble a small grotto, there are some remarkable examples out there. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites.
