Bathroom shower curtains are perfect functional bathroom accessories that can change the look of your bath decor. Shower curtains can define the color palette, mood or theme of your bathroom or can prove to be a unifying theme to tie all the bath decor colors and patterns together. Bathroom shower curtains can be bold and exotic and can be a deciding factor in the bathroom decor style such as traditional, contemporary, country, rustic, shabby chic, Japanese and Victorian. Here’s our easy guide to choosing the best shower curtains.
The prices of shower curtains vary a lot depending on the materials chosen – take a look online at the various prices being charged for quality curtains and make your mind up how upmarket you want to go.
Material.Shower curtains have to be waterproof in some way to do the practical job they are designed to do and if you want a cheap solution then choose a design you like in a waterproof fabric such as plastic, PVC, Vinyl or Polypropylene PEVA or EVA. If you want something classier for a special bathroom then choose a fabric shower curtain such as linen, hemp, silk or cotton with an additional waterproof liner or inner shower curtain. This increases the costs but gives you a lot more options in the type of look you can achieve. It also means you can replace the liner without changing the whole curtain at a future date.
Design.Think about the overall design of your bathroom and choose something on the same theme. If your bathroom is sleek and modern – a shower curtain in plain white or black or black on white might be appropriate. If you favor a fun look (or the bathroom is for kids) choose a shower curtain with a fun design such as ducks or raindrops or cartoon characters (or a million other things you can buy online).
