If you’ve ever been on holiday to a beach and felt like getting into the water to cool off then you will be familiar with the pleasures that come with taking a dip in an outdoor bath. We Brits like to take long summer holidays and go to the beach but they also like the feeling of being outdoors and being able to cool down. In the winter it can be nice to get out of the house and catch an afternoon or evening in the sun. It can also help with any allergies that you may have.
The benefits of outdoor bathing are many. There is the chance to soak in the sunshine for longer periods of time, especially if the courtyard is large. A word of warning though; if your patio or courtyard is enclosed it’s best to use an outdoor bath instead of on the grass. Outdoor bathing is just as rewarding if done properly as it is if it is done half-heartedly or cruelly.
An outdoor bath can be a wonderful place to relax with friends, family or your pets if it is set up correctly. It can be an alfresco spa type area where people can sit and enjoy the warm weather or a peaceful place to read, meditate or just relax. It is the perfect place to create your own little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
To build your own outdoor bath you need a few basic materials. The first thing you need to consider is how large the bath will be and how deep it will go. The measurements of the inside area of the bath are going to determine the shape of the pipe that you will use to install the pipe. Measure the space available between the closest wall and the depth of the drain on the other walls. This will give you the dimensions of the pipe that you will use.
Next you will want to buy a tub with a wide base so that it will fit snugly into the corner of the outdoor bath. If you’re going to build a claw foot tub, be sure that the tub will fit comfortably in the area that you are planning to build it in. A small square stone is a great idea for the bottom of the tub. It will provide a nice level surface for you to lay out the stones.
To keep the area in the outdoors as clean as possible, you will want to have a good quality faucet. This will allow you to use hot water from your own plumbing while keeping the water as clean as possible. Many outdoor baths use a shower attachment that allows you to take a quick shower without having to get out of your vehicle. It may even be possible to buy an outdoor bath with an attached hot tub.
For a more luxurious look you may want to consider using natural stone in your outdoor bathtubs and stone floors throughout your master bathroom. There are many different varieties of natural stone that are very beautiful. The most common ones used are marble, limestone, granite, soapstone and flagstone. These are all very durable and hard wearing so they are a popular choice among home owners who like a luxurious tropical style.
The fire pit is an easy way to add a splash of color and create a stunning atmosphere in your garden or yard. A stone fire pit is the perfect centerpiece to any outdoor bathroom. They can range in size from a small one-person fire pit to a large custom fire pit designed for two people. Some people love to use their fire pits as a way to cook outdoors while others prefer to just sit by them and relax. The type of wood that you choose to use will depend on your preferences. Fire pits come in many different woods such as pine, cedar, aromatic woods and evergreen species.
