Summer Shower

Long Island has some fine beaches, but it’s hard to beat the convenience (and clarity) of a backyard pool. Whether it’s a gaggle of kids attempting the first cannonballs of the season or a few tipsy adults celebrating Independence Day, all guests will appreciate the opportunity to rinse away the chemicals in a luxurious outdoor shower. This plug and play Palermo shower does just that while keeping the trail of wet footprints off your hard-wood floors. The lacquered, lauan slatted wood floor allows water to drain away and the 72-inch-tall, semi-circular wall provides privacy. Thread on a garden hose and wash off using the showerhead above or rinse your feet below. Stage with nearby towels, a collection of soaps and shampoos, and you have all the amenities of a pool house for far less. $675;
