When planning to buy your shower curtain it is important to think about the "look" you are attempting. This may be casual, formal, playful, tailored or un-tailored. Is it going to be hung in a child's bathroom? Perhaps it is for a master or guest bath. Will the shower curtain be where visitors will be seeing it? Is it in a bathroom that is used daily or perhaps just once in a while? All these instances should give you an idea of what type of material would suit the spot best. Shower curtains made of cotton or linen give the appearance of elegance. They are usually more full and flowing and therefore are a bit more formal than a vinyl or plastic curtain. Perhaps you want a clean, simple look in which case your "shower curtain" should actually be a glass door.
All bathroom shower curtains are the same length measuring 72" long. They also are all one width, generally 70" wide. Some shower rods will require two of the same curtain to cover the entire rod like with an oval curtain rod. Vinyl liners are also the same size and designed to be placed behind a fabric curtain so the fabric does not fade or mildew or allow water to soak the bathroom floor. If you find that your vinyl liners are too long and show beneath the fabric curtain, you can always cut the bottom of them off shorter than the fabric curtain. This will not affect its efficiency in keeping water from soaking the floor.
The cost of your shower curtain is dependent on which type you choose. The vinyl or plastic curtains are the most inexpensive. The fabric curtains vary greatly. You can find many that are rather cheap or have one custom made by drapery seamstress. Hemp is a relative inexpensive alternative. Glass doors are usually the most expensive.
