Outdoor Showers: Luxury in Your Back Yard
Taking a long, relaxing shower is undoubtedly one of the most blissful parts of any day. Imagine how much nicer it would be if you could take that daily shower in your back yard, rooftop garden or any relaxing outdoor spot – without risking the potential embarrassment of your neighbors.
Oborain’s pre-fabricated outdoor showers are elegant and surprisingly modest. Deep, rich woods and stainless steel combine to form showers that are every bit as sophisticated as those found indoors in lush bathrooms.
The outdoor stalls come with doors (for less secluded spots) or without them (for a beach shower experience) and optional dressing area, with or without a bench. Different sizes mean that the showers can fit into nearly any space – even those that are frustratingly tiny.
It is easy, of course, to imagine using an outdoor shower like these in a country setting. But imagine installing one in the midst of the city, listening to the sounds of traffic and civilization all around. Modular, pre-fabricated showers like these can be installed anywhere thanks to the manageable size of their components. They can be moved in a regular freight elevator, making them a viable option for rooftop gardens.
“Oborain introduces the modern, pre-fab outdoor shower. Designed and built by hand in our shop in Western Massachusetts, each shower comprises an enclosure and shower fixture as one design package. Chosen for their beauty and durability, our materials include 304 stainless steel (frame), Brazilian ipê, Malaysian Meranti, Mexican farmed teak, domestic ash and cedar, as well as Richlite architectural panels. The showers ship flat-packed, and assemble in under an hour. Hook up to hot and cold water with garden hoses or permanent lines. “
“We welcome collaboration with architects and designers, and have built custom showers in a variety of materials and sizes. Lead times vary, but generally range from 2-6 weeks. Every shower is fully assembled on our shop floor before being wrapped and shipped. With the tag line, ‘shower anywhere,’ our showers are the ultimate in handcrafted utilitarian luxury.”
