Outdoor bathroom with waterfall feature

Merbau panelling sets the tone for this outdoor retreat, which features a freestanding bath, waterfall water feature and a sliding barn door for privacy.





The project


We transformed our old concrete patio into a luxurious outdoor bathroom complete with waterfall water feature.


Now we can have a hot shower or soak in the freestanding bath listening to the tranquil sound of the water trickling down the waterfall feature, and enjoy some stargazing behind the hand-made barn doors. 




We've always wanted to build an outdoor bathroom – my wife loves them. This was our first attempt at one and we are so happy with how it came together.


The SpecRite Merbau panels look especially good here, bringing a natural feel and a durable, warm finish. The black tapware looks stunning against the timber as well.



We also loved using the James Hardie render-look cement panels. They were a perfect wall lining to give the space privacy and painted up beautifully in Dulux Monument.




We used Pine decking from Bunnings as well. It's some of the best-quality Pine decking we have used, so we were very happy with that.


I used Merbau again for the solid barn doors. They look really nice against the wall panels, breaking up the look.

very interesting setup, @diybevo! Just out of curiosity - why an outdoor bathroom? With all that space I'd put up a patio and have a bbq setup there :laugh: 

Making a Splash

Please book me into the high-end luxury retreat. I’d like a three-day stay with full access to this featured day spa. Send the bill to…um… my husband, my children, my work - I don’t care! 

if anyone needs me, I’ll be in the tub, avec champagne!
