Helpful Tips For Installing an Outdoor Shower

Consider the Location

Where do you want to put your outdoor shower? The location you choose will likely depend on your intended use. Some locations you might consider include your garden or next to the pool. For ease, you might want to place your outdoor shower on the side of the house, and near a door for easy access.

Consider the Style

What style outdoor shower appeals to you? Outdoor showers can come in any variety you can imagine. You’ll want to make your outdoor shower match your personal style. You might like a more natural look, choosing to incorporate rock walls, lining it with wood panels, or surrounding it with foliage. Or, a more minimalist, modern design may appeal to you.

Consider your Privacy Needs

How much privacy do you need for your outdoor shower? You’ll want to consider building a shower that’s open vs. private. If there’s the potential a neighbor might catch a glimpse while you shower, you may want to plan to enclose it with a tent, shower curtain, or built-in wall – especially if you intend to use it as a regular shower and not just a place to wash off after swimming. If you’re fortunate enough to have a private backyard, you might choose to keep the area open.

Consider the Environment

How eco-friendly do you want your outdoor shower to be? Your shower can be however “green” you want it to be – from low-flow showerheads to gray water recycling capability. Design your outdoor shower to match your eco-aesthetic. Make a plan for preventing leaks and make sure any hardware and plumbing is easy to access.

Also, don’t forget that your outdoor shower is, well, outdoors, and harsh weather conditions can corrode materials and cause damage to the outdoor plumbing. You’ll want to be prepared to keep your outdoor shower properly maintained throughout the year.

Consider Extra Details and Accessories

What kind of extra features do you want to include in your outdoor shower? Consider what accessories to include to make your shower more user-friendly. Ideas include benches, towel hooks, and a shower caddy. You might even think about adding lights.
