Little Luxuries: Outdoor Showers

Now that summer is fast approaching, it’s time to turn your attention to the great outdoors. If you have a pool or even just a yard, you know that summer is characterized by sweaty, dirty people (especially if you have kids) tracking dirt and water through your house. One ingenious way to guarantee your floors stay clean for more than five minutes: install an outdoor shower.

You can choose to go simple, with a basic enclosure and shower head (even the drain is optional!):

Or put in a full-fledged outdoor retreat for a more luxurious experience:

Replace the simple shower head with a sophisticated system:

Want something truly special? Try an indoor/outdoor bathroom (which also limits the muddy-feet mess to the bathroom):
Bonus: most people (again, especially children) love the novelty of showering outdoors and will be easily persuaded to use it regularly!
Where do you live? Does your summer call for an outdoor shower?
