In the following section, we’ve collected and organized a large selection of outdoor shower enclosure designs and styles. Whether you’re looking for fun, serviceable, luxurious, or entertaining you should be able to find something that will help you put together your own enclosure.
There are no plans included with these designs. You can go here for outdoor shower enclosure plans.
I have even more design ideas inside my review of Ethan Fierro’s book called The Outdoor Shower.
Wooden enclosures are the most popular type of outdoor shower enclosure. Those of you with woodworking skills could easily put up an enclosure (it’s very similar to putting up a fence for some designs). Common types of wood used include cedar, mahogany, black locust, douglas fir, southern yellow pine, cypress, bamboo, and teak.
Vinyl enclosures are becoming more and more popular due to their durability and look. Vinyl is easy to take care of and easy to install. There are many places online that sell vinyl outdoor shower enclosure kits. Vinyl enclosures can come with or without a roof. Take a look at some of the designs below and see if any would be a good match for your landscape.
Metal doesn’t always get mentioned when talking about outdoor enclosures. This is understandable because metal look isn’t usually associated with nature. However, take a look at some of these metal designs and you might change your mind. One look that is becoming more popular is the galvanized metal look shown in the picture below.
Sometimes a simple solution is best. A metal rod and a nice looking shower curtain might be just the trick for your shower. Keep it simple, enjoy nature, and save money.
These designs aren’t for everybody, but if you have the time or money to pull them off they are well worth it.
Hopefully you’ve got some ideas from these designs. If nothing else, after looking at all these outdoor showers hopefully your desire to have one of your own has increased. If you are looking for more designs I recommend you read my review of Ethan Fierro’s The Outdoor Shower. Better yet, buy the book for yourself.
