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.
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.
The first reason is the intended buyer and marketing to them. The second is the shape and cut of a shower curtain. The third is the opacity of it. These reasons are what determine which type will be bought by the consumer and so are paid close attention to by the maker.
