Cute outdoor shower ideas to upgrade your backyard
Whether you decide to have a full blown shower experience or you just want a shower to rinse yourself before or after you’ve been in the pool, outdoor showers are always good. So, without further ado, here are a few ideas you can steal from us.
Add color to your backyard
Add some color to your backyard by adding colorful tiles to your outdoor shower. Create a whole separate shower area, which can also be somewhat of a focal point in your back yard. Mount the shower head on the wall with the colorful tiles, leaving the rest of the area in a neutral color. What’s more, you can mix and match tiles on the walls, as well as on the floor to create a more interesting and vibrant area.

Give yourself an outdoor spa treatment
If you have enough secluded space in your backyard, give yourself a full blown spa treatment. Install a bathtub and a shower and allow yourself to enjoy the benefits of it while also breathing the fresh air. Add plants and plant hangers to also feel one with nature. Another thing you can do is paint the walls in a light pastel color, which is going to give you a more airy and spacious feeling. Adding furniture can be another tip, especially if you want this space to be good for any step of a spa treatement. This will also make it look like an actual spa. Furthermore, if you want more privacy, you can hang a rod and add curtains.

If you are a minimalist at heart you don’t have to go all out for an outdoor shower. Especially if you entire house design is minimalistic. Keep it simple by installing a simple shower head on a wall made of waterproof wood. Blend it within the trees and plants around your house which are going to provide a sort of a natural enclosure and give you some privacy and you have yourself a super minimalistic outdoor shower. This type of shower can be perfect if you have a backyard pool and you want to be able to rinse before and after you enter the pool.
