Besides adding a touch of tasteful luxury to beachfront properties and homes with outdoor swimming pools, outdoor showers are a practical addition for individuals and families who love spending time in the pool or simply enjoy relaxing on the beach.
We all know how annoying wet sand can be; it gets everywhere and leaves a trail of muck behind. Being able to clean it off before entering the home makes practical sense! Less cleaning up means more time relaxing and doing stuff you actually enjoy.
Selecting the Right Location & Materials for Your Outdoor Shower
When installing an outdoor shower, it’s important to give careful consideration to its location and materials.
If the shower is for an outdoor pool, it should be installed within close proximity to the pool for easy access and to prevent unnecessary water damage to the flooring around the pool area. However, if the purpose of the outdoor shower is to provide a quick rinse after a trip to the beach, it should be installed closest to the front of the property.
Since outdoor showers will be exposed to the elements, it is important to choose durable materials that can withstand repeated water contact and prolonged weather exposure. Marine-grade stainless steel offers the highest level of corrosion resistance and toughness while other durable and rust-free options include chrome and copper.
Apart from the shower hardware, selecting the right outdoor shower flooring is equally important. There are a number of options available, from stone to wood for a sleek, modern finish, or untreated timber for a rustic, natural vibe.
