Over lockdown, hot tub sales rose in the UK by 1000% as more people found themselves spending more time at home and in the garden. Since holidays abroad and going out for meals were out of the question for so long, there was a lot more spare cash going around to spend on the home. Many people found a new appreciation for their space and looked to renovate and improve upon their homes and gardens to improve their quality of life, and be able to enjoy their space more.
Enter the Hot Tub: The new height of attainable luxury and embodiment of relaxation. The UK flocked to hot tub retailers all over the country, causing stock shortages and stores to sell out for most of the summer of 2020. Couple that with the warmer weather and recent heat waves, people are wanting to spend as much time as possible outside – leading to sunburn and sunstroke and ultimately, not a very good time.
The Skin Cancer Foundation urges everyone to take sun protection seriously, and it is all too easy to forget that not all sun cream is waterproof, and will wash off in the hot tub. That is why it is urged to enjoy your time in the shade, to keep you cool and away from intense, harmful UV rays. That is easily achievable when you have a hot tub canopy.
There are many different options for shading your hot tub space, but we think a louvre canopy is the most fit for purpose. Not only are they great hot tub canopies for keeping the sun out, but they also look beautiful and will be the talk of the neighbourhood.
Not only does a canopy offer protection from the sun when our minds are elsewhere occupied with enjoying ourselves, but they also offer us privacy. Thanks to the modular system of modern louvre canopies, they are entirely customisable to fit any needs and design choices. Thanks to the added benefits of privacy, you can enjoy more time in the hot tub, either having parties or hanging out with friends and family.
As sales in hot tubs has risen so dramatically, it is understandable to see hot tub canopies are starting to become more popular, as more and more people are putting in their orders, waiting times are increasing. Take in mind how the Lockdown, Brexit and other social factors have had an impact on the speed in which canopies can be supplied to eager hot tub owners, ordering ahead of time will ensure a lack of disappointment.
