Durability and the resistance to mold and mildew are often a deciding factor when choosing the right shower curtain. This is where the amount of use a bathroom shower gets is crucial. While the fabric curtains are beautiful to look at, they may not be practical for long term, every day use. It is difficult to let a full and luscious shower curtain to air out and dry properly between each use. This means that mold and mildew will grow and multiply easily and abundantly. Vinyl and plastic shower curtains are less likely to have mildew grow on them and, if it does, cleaning is a snap. Many homeowners get the best of both worlds by hanging a vinyl shower curtain behind their more decorative fabric curtain. A fairly new fabric on the market is hemp. Hemp is a good choice because the heavy fabric is made from plant fiber, like linen or cotton. Hemp however is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, so it repels mold and mildew. For the environmentally conscious, hemp often grows organically and gets colored with natural dyes. These shower curtains remain durable after many cycles of wash and usually don't need a vinyl liner underneath. Of course a glass door is extremely durable and easy to keep clean.
Many people are choosing to use retro style shower curtains because of the novelty of them. Retro style shower curtains may be flowers, circles, squares or anything that may have been popular in the 1950's through the 1970's. They come in many different colors and bring back a feeling of nostalgia to adults who lived through those decades. These styles can also appear somewhat modern in their style but be not fooled, they are definitely retro and a true love child will know the difference when they see them.
All home bathrooms have a sink, a toilet, and a shower. These are the essentials, but what makes a bathroom likable and colorful is a fun theme. These themes are normally carried through in towel colors and, of course, shower curtains. A shower curtain is the key element in a bathroom theme, as it is a necessary commodity. Not only do shower curtains keep the water coming out of the shower head in the tub and not all over the floor, a shower curtain makes the bathroom usable to more than one person blocking off the view of the person standing under the nozzle. But, the look of the curtain can have the most influence on the buyer. Therefore, there are many reasons for a person to buy or not buy a certain one.
