A corner hot tub is a great choice for many reasons. For one, it is far more ergonomic and space saving than typical models. This allows for people with small or cramped bathrooms to have a hot tub. The alternative would be refurnishing, which is obviously far more expensive. This alone is enough to convince most people to go with this type of model.
Many people dream about having a massive 6 person hot tub. While they might be fun, one must ask themselves how often their full capacity would be used. A two person hot tub might be better. Tubs are most frequently used by an individual. Big family or friend gatherings could use a big hot tub to its fullest extent but these types of occasions are usually rare. A corner hot tub is not only far less expensive but it uses much less energy as well.
There are other benefits as well. Don't forget that a hot tub increases the value of a house. In some cases it can increase the value more than the actual cost of the tub. So technically it is possible to make a profit by buying a hot tub for yourself.
What usually stops people from buying a corner hot tub is the cost. The economy is not doing that well today and many people would feel guilty by splurging on such an unnecessary expense. A hot tub doesn't have to cost a fortune though if you know how to shop.
Buying online will save you a great deal of money. This is because you will be able to price-shop various retailers. Be careful when you go to a hot tub dealer in person. Remember that their sales staff are paid based on commission. So it is not uncommon for the staff to use pushy sales tactics. Some people can deal with this fine. But others find the situation stressful. By shopping online you will be able to avoid the situation altogether. If you do decide to shop with a dealer in person, be sure to decide how much you are willing to spend before entering the store. There are many good salesman out there and if you have a tendency to be impulsive. you could end up spending a lot more than you can afford.
Another way to save money is by looking at used or refurbished corner hot tubs. Be sure to check if there is any warranty offered. Sometimes it is from the manufacturer while others it is from the retailer. Be sure to know who is responsible if there is an issue. If you are willing to do some groundwork you could save thousands of dollars by buying a used corner hot tub.
