Curtain Ideas for Bathroom Showers
Matching curtains and drapery are designed with utmost care to enhance the interior d?ï¿½cor of the bathroom or living room. When it comes to bathroom, curtains are only thought to be functional, either to dress up windows or to form shower enclosures. However, there are plenty of design ideas for shower curtains, which can bring a spectacular difference to the appearance of the bathroom. Discussed below are a few interesting shower curtain ideas.
While choosing a shower curtain, you will have to decide on the cost, type of fabric and extent of maintenance required by the material and its construction. When it comes to patterns, you can choose from simple, bold, floral, geometric and striped patterns. Light colors are predominantly used, as they give a bright and spacious appearance to the space. Curtains accentuated with sparkling paint can reflect on the water, rendering a lively effect. Some people like to customize the patterns with artworks or favorite snapshots. The common types of curtain fabrics for shower enclosures are vinyl, terry and plastic. Vinyl and plastic are cost-effective and work well in retaining water inside the enclosure. Further, they can be cleaned easily by just tossing and machine-washing. If a heavy fabric is used, it may give a pleasant look, but it can get dirty easily and also accumulate moisture. However, you can use a plastic liner that resists moisture, keeping the curtain dry. Anti-bacterial curtains are also available to prevent accumulation of bacteria due to moisture. They are treated with suitable materials to resist the growth of microbes.
