shower curtain roundup

today’s last product roundup is all about shower curtains. for me, shower curtains are a chance to bring in some bold color and pattern into what is usually (at least for us city dwellers) one of the smallest spaces in your home. i’m not entirely satisfied with the shower curtain market as a whole, but there are definitely some stand-out designs and companies in the mix. that said, i’m a big fan of having your own custom curtain made. i regularly buy fabric from repro depot and purl soho that i have my local tailor sew into a shower-curtain sized square. i then cut and sew the holes myself but you can actually hire a seamstress to do this for you if you like (or use clips with curtain rings attached). to keep the fabric as safe as possible from water, be sure to use a thick plastic liner behind the fabric- ours gets wet anyway so i just make sure it dries thoroughly and i wash it every few weeks. but, if you’d rather buy something pre-made just click here to view the full guide or just click “read more” as you scroll down. enjoy!

  1. I like your post! Do you have any idea where is USA is possible to print your own design for shower curtains on different fabrics? I want to avoid sewing, I want to print my own photographs and design.

    This is amazing! I do the same thing with custom shower curtains – I just use a vinyl material instead of fabric. Great job!

    Love the Gisen curtain at $8.99 I live in the United Kingdom and have a Victorian semi with a small shower room with a lime patterened shower tile which these would be choice for. If you are making these yourself rather than cutting the holes into the curtain, you can create loops out of the material by cutting strips out of it and then attaching along the top

    Who would have thought a shower curtain could uplift a room so much. Excellent blog now all you need is a bath mat to suit.
