The 5 Best Lights to Add to Your Hot Tub

One of the best and easiest ways to add some visual interest to your outdoor spa is with lighting.

While your hot tub boasts interior illumination, the areas surrounding your spa can often benefit from additional lighting, especially if you intend to go for some evening dips.

Let’s discuss five of the best ways to shine a light on your spa and make your whole outdoor living space pop.

1. Landscape Lighting

One of the most common ways to add some style to your yard is with landscape lighting. The goal is not to shine lights directly on your spa, but on specific elements around it such as nearby trees or elements in a garden.

Lighting up specific architectural elements, trees or plants, rather than shining a light directly on your spa, will give you a softer illumination that is far more enjoyable when you’re relaxing in the spa after dark.

These multipurpose, low-voltage lighting fixtures come in a variety of styles, sizes, colors, and finishes, allowing you to choose lights that compliment your outdoor space.

2. Moonlighting

Moonlighting is another method for bringing attention to specific focal points. The soft bulbs, made to mimic the moon’s glow, are not placed on your spa but on surrounding or nearby elements such as trees or the roof of a gazebo or pergola.

The goal is a gentle yet glistening light that will delicately enhance your spa.

3. Rope Lighting

If you’re looking for a straightforward way to light up your hot tub or other outdoor focal point, rope lighting is for you. You can run the lighting around the base of your spa or the perimeter of your patio or deck where your spa sits.

LED rope lighting comes in a variety of shades. White blends more naturally with landscaping while colored lighting will add drama. The key to rope lighting is to highlight only one or two elements so that it doesn’t overpower your space.

4. Flood Lights

If you have a large, dark space that needs some brightening up at night, flood lights are the answer. Similar to small spotlights, this type of light is mounted on an architectural structure to shine down on any space in need of illumination.

They aren’t fancy, but they really get the job done in very large areas transforming them into a functional night-time space.

5. Tiki Torches

If you’re a fan of tropical style, tiki torches will be right up your alley. There’s a wide variety to choose from, but the copper or brass torches are your best bet.

These higher-quality torches may cost more money, but they’re sturdy and much safer because they can be wired into your landscape. This means your torches will have light bulbs rather than flammable oil.
