Importance of a Shower Curtain
Most of us tend not to pay much attention to the kind of curtains we choose for our bathrooms. They are supposed to just be fulfilling practical purposes like providing privacy and ensuring that there are no splashes on the floor. The bathroom is a place we can escape to when we feel exhausted and stressed out and come out feeling rejuvenated and relaxed after a refreshing shower. The atmosphere created in this area of the house, thus becomes all the more important.
The environment of your bathroom must be in accordance with your tastes and mood and the right kind of shower curtains achieve ninety percent of this need. They define the look of your bathroom and set the tone for the kind of atmosphere you are looking to create. Dark curtains give a haunting effect while bright ones provide an element of fun. Pale ones provide a soothing effect and curtains with elements of nature never fail to inspire.
There is a wide variety of different designs of curtains available in the market today that can be chosen from. An important point while going about it is who the bathroom will be most used by. If it is your kids’ bathroom, it is best to consult them while taking a decision. Kids who are very young can learn a lot from shower curtains with alphabets, numbers or names of different flowers or animals etc inscribed on them. Bath time can become a time for learning as well in this case.
Bathroom curtains for kids that are older look best with images from cartoons, movies or their favourite stories printed on them. They will start enjoying their shower as there is an atmosphere of fun and frolic that is prevailing in their bathroom. If your kids are girls, it is best to go in for Barbie or princess themes in pink, white and red. Curtains with detailing done in beads, lace and other such knick knacks is sure to bring a smile to your girls faces. On the other hand, if you have boys, curtain themes with cars, machines, video games etc and different shades of blue are best suited.
When it comes to deciding upon shower curtains for adults, the first thing to do is to decide upon what kind of a look you want to achieve. If you want your bathroom to look calm and soothing, go in for pale and serene colours like light blue, white, light pink, light purple, etc that provide a calming touch. A bright look can be achieved by buying curtains in brighter colours like orange, yellow, bright green, etc. A colour theme for your bathroom can be set by painting the walls in one shade and installing curtains of the same colour in a slightly different shade to maintain balance. Curtains with interesting graffiti or funny sayings can also be bought to bring in the fun element.
