Shower Curtain Materials
Shower curtains can be made from different types of material, all of which are effective at keeping water within the shower area. The most common materials that you will find include plastic, nylon, and fabric. Plastic and nylon shower curtains are very easy to keep clean as you can simply wipe them down every now and again while fabric curtains can generally be thrown in the washing machine or hand washed.
Shower Curtain Designs
Shower curtains are available in literally hundreds of different designs if you are willing to spend the time looking for them. You can choose from the classic see through curtain which is discreet yet effective or select a see through curtain that has a pattern or print of some sort applied to it. Shower curtains are also available in solid colours. Solid coloured shower curtains can have extra visual impact just by adding some texture such as a pattern woven in the fabric. Of course, you can also choose from a range of shower curtains that have designs woven through them in any colour combination that you like. Your shower curtains can be classic, elegant, modern, or novelty; it’s really up to you.
Match the Bathroom
Even though the shower curtain is the main focal point of the bathroom, it is still a good idea to keep your bathroom in mind when you are selecting the curtain. Try and pick shower curtains that implement some of the colours already in use in the bathroom or that complement the paint or the tiles. As well as the curtain itself, look for rods and hooks that complement the tapware so that you can create that truly unified look.
