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.
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.
You know of course why we use shower curtains. Not only to protect our naked bodies from the eyes of our surrounding friends and family, but also to protect the furniture, towels, floor and everything else in our bathroom from being soaked in water from the shower. You have probably seen this happen either by your own doing or someone in your family. If you have ever spilled a glass of water on the floor, you know that the small amount of water in that glass seems to be a lot more once it hits the floor. Imagine what 15 minutes in the shower without a shower curtain would be like.
