One of the most common ways we take our first outdoor shower is at the beach. Do you remember how refreshing it felt?

We go home from the beach feeling refreshed and invigorated. What you may not realize is that you feel rejuvenated because you are interacting with nature. That’s why one of the best ways to rejuvenate our spirit is to go into nature. Water happens to be one of natures most healing properties.

We don’t all live close to the beach. And you don’t have to be shivering in a sandy swimsuit to appreciate an open-air shower. Even landlocked homeowners—stressed-out townies, gritty green thumbs, suburban soccer dads—are discovering that bathing outdoors is not just practical, it’s downright luxurious. We can still optimize the space that we do have. Installing an outdoor shower is one way to optimize your living space.

Outdoor showers also accent pool areas or backyards, providing a convenient place to clean off and a yard feature that is artistic and functional. A shower outdoors is one of those things that seems odd at first, but when people see them at someone else’s place, they end up wanting them for their own backyard.
