Taking a shower after a long day is a relief! The work stress and downbeat of life these days strains every inch of our body and showers are the time to forget about the worldly stress and just enjoy your own little solitude time. We spend a considerable amount of time in bathrooms. It is a place to relax with the privacy of one’s own self. It is a place where we plan our dreams, think about the meaning of life, ponder over our existence, reflect on our past, dream about our future, our work and even plan out the next meeting at the office. It therefore becomes very important to style our bathrooms in our own way. With proper fixtures, the hardware and mirror the next important thing is how you keep your shower curtains interesting.
Shower curtains are becoming more than just a useful item in bathrooms these days. With a single touch of these you can create a whole new aura surrounding you. Here are a few designs we found interesting and hope you do too.
The first thing you need to know is what exactly are you looking for and what are your requirements. Shower curtains come in a variety of fabrics and you must choose carefully according to your bathroom.
Fabric Shower Curtains
You can choose fabrics like cotton, polyester or blend. Cotton shower curtains are easy to maintain, you can easily wash them in machine and don’t have to worry about it. It however needs to be used with a liner in order to repel moisture soap etc. Cotton is porous and breathes through the air and is simple to wash.
We found this 100% Cotton Lucianna Collection Heavyweight Embroidered Decorative Shower Curtain by the brand Home Fashion Designs.
We loved how simple it is, this can go with a wide range of bathrooms and add to its beauty. It’s twill weave and Geometric embroidery gives a subtle, decorative touch to the bathroom. The neutral color is perfect to go well with most bathrooms, you can choose from white/tan/grey and navy colors to match your style. It is heavy weight and 100% cotton, machine wash in cold water and so very affordable!
If you are more into dark colors, than this next one might be the one you are looking for!
Floral Cotton Shower Curtain Blue White
We loved its color! It’s dark and elegant and all that you want to make your bathroom look classy!
100% cotton with bohemian floral pattern, this sure is going to make your bathroom look its best. Material of this curtain is a little heavy, so this will also block a bit of light coming from elsewhere. If your bathing area doesn’t have a bright light don’t go for this one. Another point that you should note for this is the color is not very bright, it most probably will go well with bright bathrooms else it will make the places darker and not as much fun for the job.
Polyester Shower Curtains and their best designs
Polyester shower curtains are thick and strong. They keep the moisture away and don’t really need a liner. Like cotton, polyester is porous as well and they are light weight, so it’s easy to clean them.
Polyester shower curtains come in a variety of designs. They are usually vinyl polyesters and come with additional features like anti-fungal, antibacterial, resistant to mildew shower curtains. In the end it’s all up to you how you want the design to coordinate with the colors or the overall appearance of your bathroom.
Here are a few examples I liked the most,
