Round Hot Tubs

Round hot tubs are a great and less common choice for anyone looking for a luxurious outdoor experience. They tend to be lighter, more affordable, and in some cases, easier to install because they fit in oddly-shaped spaces.

Round hot tubs are also perfect for social gatherings since everyone faces each other in a circle. Plus, since they take up relatively little space, round hot tubs are great for smaller yards or oddly shaped areas that cannot accommodate traditional rectangular setups.

Since these types of spas are less popular than their straight-edged counterparts, you might have fewer choices regarding accessories and design options. Lounge seating also may not be an option with this type of spa, as most models will only feature seating along the perimeter.

Square Hot Tubs

Square hot tubs have become an increasingly popular choice amongst homeowners in recent years due to their attractive aesthetic and easy placement options. Not only do square hot tubs provide the final touches to a perfect backyard, but the space around them can be efficiently planned since they don’t come with complex designs.

With plenty of different models available, you will find the perfect match for their outdoor living space. Whether you are looking for a large Jacuzzi® with open seating or a simple soak tub with lounge seating, you’ll be able to find a square hot tub that fits your desired look while also delivering all the features you need for fun and relaxation.

Rectangle Hot Tubs

Rectangle hot tubs are a popular choice when it comes to selecting a hot tub for your outdoor space. With plenty of sizes and style options, you will surely find the perfect fit for your lifestyle. Even better, rectangle hot tubs offer plenty of seating and lounge choices, allowing for a custom design that accommodates all your needs.

Whether you are hosting an intimate gathering or a larger party, a wide range of seating capacities are available to suit what works best for you. Not only will you benefit from the openness and extra seating with rectangle hot tubs, but they can also be great conversation starters—making them perfect for anyone looking to bring their patio area up to the next level!

Other Shapes

While other shapes are less common than the three discussed above, they are still options to consider when searching for your perfect hot tub. Other shapes include:

  • Kidney
  • Ellipse
  • Heart
  • Triangle
  • Freeform

You may find it challenging to find a hot tub shaped differently than the traditional three because they are less popular, especially when it comes to accessories and features. Additionally, they cost more due to their uniqueness. However, if you are looking for something truly one-of-a-kind that is sure to impress, then these are the right choice for you.
