There's no reason why your bathroom and shower can't look as good as the rest of your home. Shower curtains are a small detail that can add a lot of character to a small space, while fulfilling a very specific function.
No matter the size of your shower and bathroom, you'll find thousands of stylish options. Shower curtains come in all shapes and sizes from straight, square and rectangle to corners, curves and U shapes.
There's a range of styles available to match your bathroom décor including art deco, contemporary, tropical, nautical and gothic. Take your pick from animal print, stripes, paisley, florals and geometric prints.
Whatever your taste, there are dozens of brands to choose from including IKEA, Sabichi, Euroshowers, Blue Canyon, WENKO, Croydex and Ralph Lauren. Disney is a popular brand choice for those with and without children. Decorate your shower with your favourite characters from Finding Dory, the Little Mermaid, Frozen, Cars and Fantasia.
Shower Curtain Materials
As bathrooms are hot and humid spaces it can be easy for mould and mildew to build up so it's important to opt for a shower curtain that's durable and can be washed easily. Plastics like PVC, polypropylene and vinyl are the best at repelling water and can typically be put in the washing machine at 30 degrees Celsius.
You can also find shower curtains made from lighter natural materials. These are typically backed with a plastic liner, ensuring water can't escape from the inside. Choices include luxurious silks and cottons or polyester. Depending on the size of your shower and the style you're going for, you can opt for extra length, a weighted hem or ruffle detailing.
You'll also have a choice of hookless and hooked curtains and can choose hooks made from plastic or more stylish copper, chrome and stainless steel.
