Tapware and shower fittings for outdoor use need to be able to withstand coastal conditions. At the beach house, an outdoor shower is essential to rinse off after a swim and stop everyone from walking in salt and sand. Another tip is to install a bath spout low down for easy foot washing!
An outdoor shower offers a solution to all pre and post-swimming needs. Placed next to the pool or spa at home, this will become indispensable throughout the year to keep the smell of chlorine outside and save a lot of indoor mess. A beautiful brass shower is an architectural feature.
An outdoor shower can be used to wash your pets and help everyone cool down outside, particularly on hot summer days.
Install a bare brass outdoor shower at your beach house and leave the elements to do the rest!
Exterior shower fittings must be able to withstand the elements but all plated finishes will deteriorate in time. Perrin & Rowe make tapware and shower fittings from uncoated bare brass specifically for use outdoors, including marine environments. With exposure, brass will develop characteristic patina but not lose functionality.
Our uncoated bare brass starts life bright and golden, and patinas off to a rich bronze look over time.
Uncoated bare brass is a prudent choice for outdoor kitchens and is also gaining popularity as the selected finish for kitchen and bathroom tapware and fittings in interior projects using natural materials.
Uncoated bare brass can become a feature in exposed situations such as al fresco kitchens and for outdoor showers at beach houses. When left uncoated, high quality brass develops a golden patina which complements natural coastal elements and organic stones like granite, marble and limestone.
