A shower curtain is a great way to give your bathroom a fresh new look on a budget. Redecorating can get pricey, but a shower curtain is a quick and easy way to brighten up your most essential room without making any big decisions or breaking the bank.
There are a few things you should consider before buying a new shower curtain. This buying guide will help you choose the right shower curtain for your space while keeping your shower free from mildew and mould over time.
What’s your style?
Find the style that’s right for your space. Are you going for a modern minimalist makeover or do you want to transform your bathroom into a tranquil spa oasis? Knowing the look and feel you want for your space will help you find inspiration and design your dream bathroom.
Choosing the right material
After choosing the general style you’d like for your bathroom, specific materials will offer functionality and help you create that look and feel.
Cotton or Linen
Naturally textured fabrics like cotton and linen give a bathroom an airy, spa-like feel and will be ideal for a Scandinavian look. Just remember to pick up a vinyl liner too, since these natural fabrics are more susceptible to mould and mildew.
Looking for a durable, longer-lasting option? Vinyl shower curtains and liners are made of a thick, waterproof material that’s easy to wipe clean!
A synthetic fabric like polyester is naturally water-resistant. Polyester curtains offer more variety in terms of colour and patterns than a vinyl curtain does. Like vinyl, polyester is also mildew resistant, but it’s best to add a vinyl liner for extra protection.
Little details that go a long way
To fit the style you want in your bathroom, pick a shower rod that matches it, too! Choose from chrome, copper, and bronze finishes to help give your bathroom the look you want.
If you want to make your shower feel bigger, try using a curved shower rod. The curved design provides up to 33% more shower space than regular shower rods.
This little accessory is an underrated upgrade that can make a noticeable change in your space. For more of a luxe look, skip the plastic and find some chic metal curtain rings to match your style.
