Best Outdoor Shower Enclosures: Quick List

No search for outdoor shower ideas should leave out the outdoor shower enclosure.  If you are confident in your DIY skills, building an outdoor shower with an outdoor shower enclosure kit is convenient. Each outdoor shower enclosure kit includes privacy walls and all the hardware you need to build your outdoor shower enclosure.  If you think you might need installation help, you’d probably want to use a local handyman or carpenter.  Buying the outdoor enclosure kit is still a good decision because the kits come per-assembled and are huge time savers, limiting the amount of labor.

House Mount Vs. Free Standing:  The house mount outdoor shower enclosure requires attaching the outdoor shower walls directly to a house or garage.  Free Standing will require additional work to be done by digging holes and filling with concrete so the shower enclosure has something sturdy to attach to.  Choose your design based on what you think you might be more comfortable with.

Cedar House Mount Outdoor Shower Enclosure

The Cedar House Mount Outdoor Shower Enclosure is one of the most popular shower enclosures on the market.  The cedar is extremely high quality and it has been pre-built built to be easy to assemble with all the necessary hardware.  It uses beautiful knotty cedar which if taken care of, will last a lifetime.  Dimensions are 52″ x 52″

Included in the Outdoor Shower Enclosure Kit are:

  • 2 Large Cedar Walls (44.25″ x 72.75″)
  • 1 Small Cedar Wall (14.125″ x 72.75″)
  • 1 Cedar Door (26″ x 72.75″)
  • 3 – 8′ Cedar Posts for above ground installation
  • 3 Cedar Post Caps
  • 1 – 3′ x 3′ Cedar Decking Floor
  • Hardware Pack containing all screws, hinges, latch, timberloks

Free Standing Cedar Outdoor Shower Enclosure Kit

This cedar 4-wall outdoor shower enclosure kit can be put anywhere you have the room.  You can place against a house, garage, shed or even free-standing in your yard.  It is very versatile in that aspect.  However, understand the additional work needed with post hole digging and preparing cement and mounting hardware to that cement that is needed.  If you are not capable, you’ll need to hire an expert for installation.  The kit is still a huge time saver.  The quality is excellent and the kit contains all the hardware needed for assembly.  Dimensions are 52″ x 52″

Included in the outdoor shower enclosure kit:

  • 3 Large Cedar Walls (44.25″ x 72.75″)
  • 1 Small Cedar Wall (14.125″ x 72.75″)
  • 1 Cedar Door (26″ x 72.75″)
  • 5 – 8′ Cedar Posts for above ground installation
  • 5 Cedar Post Caps
  • 1 – 3′ x 3′ Cedar Decking Floor
  • Hardware Pack including all screws, hinges, latch, timberloks

Oceanside Vinyl Outdoor Shower Enclosure

The Oceanside Outdoor Shower enclosure is very nice but there is some extra installation work needed.  This particular kit contains, 2 walls, a pergola style roof and hardware.  It is not a freestanding enclosure so it must be mounted in the ground.  We recommend using the Outdoor Vinyl Shower Mounting Extension Kit.  These extensions would install similar to a fence post.  You would need to dig 4 holes and fill with concrete.  You can also choose to mount the legs to a concrete pad, the company sells the concrete mounts separately.  However, it’s extremely easy to assemble.  To complete the enclosure, purchase some shower rings and a privacy shower curtain.  We like mDesign’s Navy Extra Long Outdoor Shower Curtains for this application.

Vinyl is a great choice if you are looking for an outdoor shower enclosure with limited maintenance.  A power wash every year or so and you’re all set. Lifetime Warranty means it won’t crack, warp, yellow, splinter, or rot. Crafted with Premium weather resistant vinyl.

Additional features for this outdoor shower enclosure are:

  • Inside dimensions are 36in x 36in x 93in tall. Unit contains both sides and a roof; back wall or gate is not included
  • Shower footprint is 3ft x 3ft
  • Plumbing and shower head not included
