These DIY outdoor shower ideas are perfect if you have a pool or play area in your backyard. It will let you or the kids take a quick a shower after a fun afternoon in the sun before heading in your home.
While many outdoor showers are drab, you don’t need to tolerate them.
In fact, if you’re looking to build your own or design something similar, here are some amazing ideas and designs to take inspiration from.
DIY Outdoor Shower Ideas
Classic Wooden Shower
This is a lovely wooden style outdoor shower you’ll see in many outdoor spaces. But, with more care and elegance.
The wood has a beautiful finish and it is well-made. Plus, the tile floors are an amazing addition that most outdoor swim areas will not come with.
Large Bath and Shower Space
If you prefer something more spacious that’s just as elegant looking, this is a great option. This outdoor shower comes with a sink and a few other amenities so you can do everything you need to do there.

Relaxing Aluminum Outdoor Bath & Shower
This is one of my favorites because it combines a bit of rustic along with modern spa amenities.
The aluminum tub matches the walls. And, the candles are a lovely touch as well.
Plus, you get more privacy here that allows you to take your time to relax compared to many other outdoor showers.
Complete Outdoor Bathroom with Shower & Sink
This design is very similar to the large outdoor shower above. But, it comes with an enclosure which gives you complete privacy. The sink and toilet are nice touches as you have everything you’ll need.
The lights also make it very usable after dark.
Partial Outdoor Shower
On the opposite side of the fence, you have something that’s designed for quick, public use.
It is very similar to many public showers you’ll see in the community swimming pools or near the beach where you can get a quick wash and towel off.
Large Overhead Outdoor Shower with Decorative Tiles
Simple, yet very functional. The aesthetics are lovely as well.
The best thing about this outdoor shower idea is you can easily build one yourself. The tricky part will be the plumbing. If you have experience, you can do it yourself. But, more likely you’ll need to hire someone to do that part.
The rest, including wall enclosure and laying the decorative tiles are DIY projects you can do.
Summer Beach Style Shower
This is something I love because I reminds me of one of one of the pools I use to frequent as a kid.
There’s no frills, not extra design work or even paint on the wood.
But, it works and it is easy to use. And, you can DIY the entire setup (except of the plumbing probably) yourself.
Of course, you can add some décor and paint the exterior as well with your favorite color. But, it’s lovely as it is.
Rustic Shower with Tub
If you enjoy soaking in the tub and taking time to yourself, this is a great way to do it. While most bathtubs are set indoors, this lets you enjoy the outdoors and soak in some natural light.
You can repurpose old curtains or wood to create the rest of the shower.
Easy Outdoor Shower
If you like more privacy but don’t like to do much woodwork this is a great idea.
You can set this up with a few pipes to build the frame. Then hand shower blinds that will extend to the sides and front.
Relaxing Wooden Shower Area
I love this multi-purpose shower because it comes with a bench and other amenities. This will let you use it as a spa or relaxation spot when you’re not showring.
And, the wooden construction perfectly matches the side of the house as well.
Complete Outdoor Shower with Bathtub & Mirror
This cozy shower comes complete with bathtub and mirror. You also have a lot of space to take your time and relax after a day swimming or in the outdoors.
The lovely flooring goes well with the furniture while the gray wooden fencing complements the tan hues.
Elegant Wooden Shower
Simple yet elegant. All this is are a few rocks, and two pieces of large wooden platforms.
But, the way it is set up and execute is awesome. It upgrades the look of the entire area and makes it very beautiful to look at.
Backyard Box Shower
This is a pretty outdoor shower that makes use of pieces of wood arranged intervals. It is very lovely to look at but be aware that there is no privacy whatsoever here.
As such, it is probably best for the family home.
Spacious Outdoor Shower
This is one of my very top picks. It looks and feels like a spa.
And, it is perfect if you have space on the side of your house you’re not using. Instead of creating a small garden space, you can turn this into a your very own home spa.
You’ve got the bathtub where you can enjoy some relaxation time. You can also use some essential oils to simulate the spa environment.
There’s also a shower. And, overall the areas has a very soothing atmosphere.
Wood and Aluminum Covered Shower
This creative outdoor shower use an aluminum sheet that’s similar to those of roofing. This gives it a different look from wood.
And, if you’re creating your own backyard shower at home it s a better idea since you don’t want to worry about the long term effects of water and on wood.
