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.
Maybe you have a fun streak in you and you are wanting something different and fun in you bathroom, why not try a novelty shower curtain? These could be made of unique fabrics and designs with funny hooks, such as a large polar bear on the curtain and icicles for the hooks. Or little ducks actually swimming inside the curtain with blue water like substance. This is made with two heavy duty shower curtains fussed together at the seams with enough air to allow the little ducks to move about. Kids love this one and so do adults! They make the same kind of bathroom curtains with penguins and snow and butterflies and grass. The themes are endless and fun to watch bob up and down.
One thing people seem to forget sometimes is that you actually have to wash your curtain now and again to keep it fresh and nice and clean. But the great part is that if you find a well priced curtain that you like, you can just replace it after a while when you get tired of it. This way you re-decorate your bathroom for a low price with minimum work.
