Of course, when you a buy a shower curtain, you consider your existing bathroom décor and it would be the first thing you would buy before buying any matching accessories like towels or rugs.
Therefore, it would be a good idea to look first at the options available to you when shopping for the shower curtain.
Choosing between the two types of shower curtain – vinyl or fabric, is really a matter of preference but you must consider the benefits of the fabric shower curtain.
Vinyl shower curtains are cheaper than fabric, and are quite practical and easy to clean. However, fabric shower curtains lend a more comfortable yet formal feel to a bathroom.
Fabric shower curtains are always recommended to hang with a curtain liner in order to protect the fabric from the water splashes. It likewise protects your floors from misdirected water.
It is also recommended to use a traverse or double rod to go with it as this allows the shower curtain to remain fixed while the curtain liner has separate hooks to slide shut and open.
It is by far more convenient than putting both fabric shower curtain and the curtain liner on one set of hooks. Although some still use it if they only have a single rod fitted. Curtain liners are bought separately unless the fabric shower curtain you had purchased already includes one.
Another major factor to consider when you buy a fabric shower curtain is its durability for wash and wear. Choose a fabric that would hold up well in frequent use. Also, since mold and mildew could grow anywhere in the bathroom because of excessive moisture, you best choose a fabric shower curtain that is machine washable. Washing details are normally included on the package label.
If your bathroom is old and tired, updating it with a fabric shower curtain gives it an entirely new look. There is an abundance of options out in the market, with different styles from traditional to the contemporary, different themes, and colors. All you need to do is make time and effort to pick out one or two at least twice a year so that your bathroom is given a lift regularly.
