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.
Lastly, the opacity of a shower curtain is imperative. If someone wants a very opaque one to make sure their privacy is kept, or so that they can take a shower in dimmer light, there is a need for that type of curtain. If one does not mind what the opacity is and is just looking for the right color scheme or shape, then it is not as important. On the other hand, if a person wants a shower curtain that is translucent, so as to see what is going on in the bathroom as they take their shower, or so as to get plenty of light coming in through it, then it can be seen through needs also to be on the market.
Shower curtains were created to provide privacy for the one taking the shower and to prevent a flood from happening in the bathroom. The curtains usually surround the inside of the bathtub. These curtains are suspended by a rod at the top of the bathtub or shower enclosure.
