Featured Design Element: Outdoor Bath

Architecture & Interiors

We find the idea of getting to wash away the days troubles while standing under the stars to be very appealing. Of course, in a dense urban setting deciding to take a bath outdoors could potentially lead to your neighbors knowing a little too much about you, but with smart design, efficient planning and modern sensibilities, a tucked away spot for an modern outdoor shower or bathtub is possible.

What do you think about outdoor bathtubs and showers? Peaceful and serene? Or kind of creepy?

    Not saying to make it a parade, or an evening entertainment spot. Bathing outdoors can be a great calming experience. Shame we live in a time and place where with some people, the thought is dirtier that what ya wash off.. Would love to be in a place where it could be enjoyed.

    I love it!!! I’ve seen the showers before on HGTV in paradise homes. But, the bath is so ecclectic and rustic..love it! :)

    Absolutely love having showers outdoors. At the cabin, on the river.

    I adore the top left, but the right one is so appealing.
