I guess I must really want an outdoor shower because I cannot stop looking at pics of them on the internet....and it doesn't hurt that right now the temperatures in my area are over 90 F everyday.

So here are a few more ideas for outdoor showers.

Show'r from Atelier Treadewinds is a mobile outdoor shower made out of galvanized and powder-coated iron tubes and a black locust wood base. (Cold water only)  Wheels are placed at the back to allow the shower to be moved easily. Just click your garden hose to the standard quick connector at the base and your garden shower is ready.  Show'r is also easily dismountable.

As I say, it is the setting that makes an outdoor shower outstanding.  Add color, texture, plants or all of the above!  Examples of showers and their enclosures below:


Paint a poured concrete and concrete block wall blue and it makes for a private 'Blue Lagoon.'


Sunset Magazine

Take some wood and box in the shower ( see at top of shower?) and Voila! a privacy screen. Add some bamboo, if you dare.

Andersson Wise Architects

What to do with all that wood from the trees you cut up? Make a privacy wall. Seal it very very well.

James Crisp architect, Millbrook NY

A lovely wooden screen fence for both the shower and changing station. Fabulous. Make the doorway wide, as shown here.


  1. I love the 3d picture that one is more blocked for you'r privacy right!?

  2. I like the blue one... but would die for the one with the bamboo... I imagine a similar structure, with bamboo growing out of crushed 'blue lagoon' colored glass mulch. Some bubbling water around the bamboo would make it spectacular as well! Or maybe I would just stick with natural river pebbles, who knows!

  3. I can see it now.....but glass mulch by a shower - kind of dangerous, don't you think?

  4. As the New Zealanders would say, 'Bloody Hell, your crazy' ;-)

  7. Would love an outdoor shower, however, the waether here in Upstate NY doesn't make it viable.
