An outdoor shower is the perfect summertime project to make a quick rinse easy and enjoyable.
One of the best things about this type of project is that anything is possible. You can get as creative as you like, whether you want a rustic farmhouse look or tropical waterfall vibes.
We’ve got your outdoor shower inspo covered in this post, with 5 of our favorite style tips.
The easy outdoor shower
You don’t have to grab your work overalls and toolbox for this simple, yet stunning idea. Note that you need to have a shady tree (like an oak tree) with strong, low-hanging branches for this to work.
- Take a garden hose and drape it over the tree branch, then wrap it tightly.
- Attach a shower head to the hose so it is hanging down towards the ground.
- Lean a lightweight ladder against the trunk of the tree to hang towels.
Create shower walls using wooden slats
A wooden panel or pallet goes a long way- and pallets are easy (and cheap) to get your hands on. You can treat the wood to be waterproof and construct it as tall as you want to make a wooden panel enclosure.
More creative enclosure ideas
There are plenty of other materials that make easy shower enclosures, including bamboo, metal panels, and shower curtains.
Use pebble tile flooring
One beautiful way to accentuate the natural look of your outdoor shower is to use pebble tile flooring. It’s easy to install without the help of a professional, and the smooth stones feel like a massage against feet!
Accent with tropical plants
Turn your outdoor shower into a jungle oasis by adding container plants. Not only is this an easy and natural decorative element, but plants enhance privacy by supplying more cover.
Do you have a wooden trellis structure in your yard? This serves as the perfect base to mount a showerhead with minimal work required!
