Spa Extreme Make Over

This is part of our first home reno series. Please remember to read our "Reno & Home Improvement Advice" blog before you attempt such a large project on your own.


FROM BLAND TO GRAND!

THE BRIEF:

Initially this was a concrete semi inground spa that was tiled inside with a clay look paver type top tile (very dated) surrounded by 70mm decking boards and cedar cladding for walls with no roof cover. The plan was to modernise the spa itself and to give it a bespoke surrounding that tied in with the rest of the renovation of the house.

THE JOURNEY:

The spa itself had multiple mild leaks so it was either pull the whole thing out and put down a new slab or fill it with concrete and use it as a base for a new one (both very expensive options) or re line the spa and add glass tiles to the inside top edge of it plus renew the very top tiles also. After many a so-called spa repairer either visited and never sent a quote, or never showed up at all we finally found a company that showed up AND provided a quote to re line it for us using fibreglass, YAY!

Now that we were sure that we could use the spa in sitch we could then get on with creating its surrounds, initially we were going to clad over the existing cedar panelling with bamboo and only have the deck on the new balcony above it for roofing, however, fortunately after much discussion went for  travertine stone tiled walls with the same tiles used on spa top (these are also on steps at front of house) and a colorbond lining below the deck so the area was dry rather than wet. The deck surrounding is a combination of 140mm x 19mm Garapa and Merbau hardwood fixed with stainless steel Batten screws onto a treated pine sub frame with low voltage 316 marine grade stainless deck lights added.

Pool fence and self-locking gate is all stainless and frameless glass is zone toughened.

There is also a double-glazed PVC window that looks into the spa area from the dining room, so if children are in the spa, it is easy to keep an eye on them without going outside.

GET THE LOOK:

Materials used are as follows.

  • Night sky colorbond roof
  • Lexicon quarter white on ceiling at rear
  • Night sky black satin on all timber work
  • Intergrain oil used on all Garapa and Merbau decking
  • Grey travertine stone tiles with matching grout on all walls and surrounding spa top
  • Pacific blue fiberglass in spa plus Dark blue Italian glass tiles at top of spa
  • Golden Oak double-glazed PVC window
