Incorporating Shower Curtains as a Bathroom Accent

When most people think of renovating or updating their bathroom they usually think about faucets, lighting and new paint. But shower curtains are often overlooked feature in most baths. A good curtain can protect your floors and walls from water while adding a bit of flair to the space. Sarah and I went with a simple vinyl liner and a bright, decorative fabric outer curtain to liven up the room. Here are a couple of things to consider when looking for your own shower curtain…

Vinyl vs. Fabric

Curtain material is usually one of the first things to consider when looking for a new curtain. Vinyl for instance is a fantastic choice for keeping water off floors and walls, whereas a fabric material often has more designs, patters and/or decorative prints. It goes without saying that if you go the way of fabric liner, you’ll also need a vinyl liner to keep water from soaking your fabric curtain. The good news is that vinyl liners are relatively inexpensive and can be replaced often when they get too dingy and dirty.





Get Creative 

Many homeowners overlook just how many design possibilities there are out there when it comes to choosing a shower curtain. Consider finding similar colors and patterns to complement your existing décor within your bath. Whether you’re looking for an ultra-minimalistic style or just trying to brighten up your space there’s a perfect curtain out there. 

Bathroom Update?

It is important to keep in mind that while a shower curtain is a great accent piece if you’re really tired of how your bathroom look it might be time for a bathroom update. Consider new fixtures, cabinet hardware and paint, but of which can be done relatively inexpensively.
