Bathing activities are indeed a necessity for people. If the bathroom uses a bathtub, we can relax while soaking in it. The water element itself does provide calm when near us. In addition to the bathtub, there is also a bathroom with a shower that can make us fresher from the tip of the hair to the tip of the foot. But what if the area for the bath itself is located in the outdoor?
Outdoor showers have plenty of benefits, especially for people who spend a lot of time outside. If your day of boating, beach combing, or hiking has left you grimy and sweaty, it’s a good idea to wash off before heading inside, if only to spare your white porcelain tub all the sand, grime and dirt from outside.
There are plenty of outdoor shower designs inspired to luxury showers. But all of them are made of metal and stainless steel or of wood. You can make outdoor showers free-standing or installed on the exterior of your house or the interior of the backyard fence or wall. Some of them are provided with dishes for soaps and others are so light to move from one place to another.
Every outdoor shower needs a modicum of privacy. An interesting shower curtain is one of the solutions. Opt for one that’s made to weather the outdoor elements and is mildew resistant. While you’re at it, you have to keep in mind that outdoor showers will require a well water filter to help keep your water clean and fresh while also lowering maintenance hassles and costs. For the flooring pick a water-resistant material that’s easy to keep clean.
It’s so refreshing to enjoy water outdoors! Wondering how to design one to make the taking shower a real spa experience? Choose natural wood, stone or tiles to design your private outdoor shower, highlight this zone and separate it with some partition to keep the space private. Go creative – make a shower with surfs or in the shape of a ship; don’t forget to add some greenery to feel the outdoor spirit. Look at the ideas in different styles below and get inspired!
