Spas have been around for centuries and are an effective way to relax and soothe the body. Installing a balcony spa is a way to simultaneously enjoy the outdoors while rejuvenating the body. When choosing a balcony spa for one's home, it's important to think about five factors to ensure finding the best product. These include the size, color, features, initial cost and overall costs.

Perhaps the most important aspect of choosing a balcony spa is finding a product that properly fits in its intended location. Since the layout of every home is different, it's important to make sure that a spa will fit before making a purchase. It's also important to think about how many people will be in the spa at any given time. If it will be a full family, then it's best to choose a larger model. A smaller scale model is likely to suffice if a couple or single person will be using the spa.

The color is another important aspect to consider when making a choice. In most cases, homeowners will want their balcony spa to blend in with the rest of the balcony. While it's not always necessary to find a perfect color match, it's usually smart to stick with a similar color scheme. For example, a light-brown, wooden balcony would probably look best with a cream colored or beige spa. Finding a complementary color should help tie everything in together and create an eye appealing aesthetic.


The extra features of a balcony spa are something that's more important for some people than others. For example, some spas have extra jets that provide massaging for sore muscles and are very therapeutic. On the other hand, others are more basic and will have only two or three jets. Deciding on this option will ultimately depend on the health needs of the homeowners. Those that experience consistent muscle pain and fatigue will most likely want to opt for extra jets, while a more basic option will typically suffice for everyone else.

Additionally, both the initial and overall costs should be taken into account when making a decision. When it comes to buying the product, larger sizes and extra features usually mean a higher price. In contrast, going with a smaller, more basic product usually means lower upfront costs. When it comes to overall, long-term costs, the larger the spa, the higher the operating costs will be. This is because it takes more energy to heat the spa, which means higher costs.
