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.
One major factor you should consider when purchasing new shower curtains is to ask the salesperson for advice, there are many new fabrics that are now being used and some of these are mildew resistant, this type of material has been chemically treated in the manufacturing process to reduce the growth of mould. If you are looking a natural shower curtain than hemp is what you should choose, this is now becoming more and more available in many different styles and shapes. Hemp shower curtains do require more washing but the overall softer look is well worth it.
These shower curtains can either be installed on a rod using rod and rings, or alternatively they can be installed a specialized curtain rod using either pinch pleat or pencil pleat curtains, for my information read our "how to make curtains - includes secret fabric formula" tutorial. I have seen many shower curtains in my clients homes that have basically transformed a tired bathroom into a place of brightness and atmosphere.
