After eyeing them for quite some time, you’ve finally made the decision to purchase a hot tub. As you get serious about the buying process, one question on your mind may be, “What is the standard size of a hot tub?” After all, you don’t want to purchase a spa that is too small or too big, so gauging your choice off the average is a good direction to go. Many hot tubs today are actually broken up into small, medium, and large sizes, depending on how many people you want to fit in the spa.
Since spas are equipped with built-in seating, this means that the number of designated spots indicates how many people the hot tub can typically fit. Most small-sized hot tubs can accommodate anywhere from 2 to 4 people, and therefore range from 5 to 7 feet in length.
A medium-sized hot tub generally fits about 5 to 7 people, or in other words, has 5 to 7 designated seats. This a common size for families, because anyone with kids knows that you don’t want siblings fighting over space in the hot tub. The dimensions of medium spas vary from about 6.5 to 8 feet in length.
The life of the party typically opts for a large spa. These hot tubs can fit 7 or more people, meaning that a good chunk of your friends and family will be able to hop in. You can find large spas in some fairly spacious sizes, but they can start around 7 to 9 feet.
When deciding on the right spa size, you should take into account how many people will usually be using it, as well as how much space you have.
