Imagine showering outside on a summer morning, hearing the sounds of nature and feeling a gentle breeze on your wet skin. If you have ever had an outdoor shower, you will know why so many homeowners revere this simple luxury. In this article, Saniflo gives their best advice for creating an outdoor bathroom that you will love.
Whether it is a fun afternoon by the pool or an early morning swim in summer, there is nothing better than going for a dip. Actually, there is one thing; having a proper shower after your swim. Washing off all the chlorine or salt, feeling fresh and clean and not making a mess inside with wet feet – what’s not to like?
In order to enjoy this luxury, why not create your own outdoor bathroom? Not just an old shower head attached to a hose, but a proper bathroom. One complete with appliances that will make you prefer the outdoor option to your traditional indoor space. Already dreaming of your alfresco bathroom? Below are some considerations to take on board before you start this project.
The benefit of an outdoor bathroom is your connection with nature while washing. But the location does need to be carefully considered. Choose somewhere discreet, hidden away from your neighbours prying eyes. This will allow you to fully enjoy the experience of your alfresco bathroom without inhibitions. If your garden doesn’t have quite the right spot, building a screen can give you the necessary privacy.
Another element to take into consideration is the proximity to trees. Do you want to enjoy the trees’ shade while enjoying your alfresco bathroom? Or would you prefer to be far from the bugs and leaves that fall into the shower? Once you’ve chosen your location, you’ll need to kit out the bathroom with the right appliances. To create a ‘fully furnished’ outdoor bathroom, you’ll need a hand basin, shower and a little storage. If you have the space, you could even add an additional toilet for convenience. Timber and stone finishing’s are timeless and will never go out of style. Or you could choose bold mosaic tiles as your finish.
Once you’ve decided the look and feel, it’s time to consider the practical elements. With a Saniflo pump, the plumbing required for your alfresco bathroom is not a problem. Even if the desired location is up to 100 metres away from main sewerage lines, Saniflo allows you to build alfresco bathrooms no matter the distance. All you need is Saniflo’s Saniaccess to connect to your toilet, shower and hand basin, giving you complete design flexibility.
