Designer Shower Curtains
Shower curtains can go a long way in making your bathroom look more luxurious.  Most homeowners with mammoth-sized master baths incorporate glass doors instead of shower curtains, but if you have a small, modest bathroom (such as a guest bath), using the right shower curtains in a design scheme can do wonders for your bathroom. After all, the shower curtain covers a large portion of the visual space.  You can start by picking a design concept based on existing or purchased shower curtains, or you can buy shower curtains that match your current bathroom design.     

Imagination is key

Most people choose to play safe and go for shower curtains that can blend with any bathroom design or wall color. These are usually generic shower curtains with solid, common colors, such as plain blue, white, or gray. Although this is certainly practical, it can make your bathroom look dull, lifeless, and lacking in personality.

Bathroom designs that reflect your mood, disposition, or character can do a lot in helping you start your day right. For example, bright shower curtains with sunflower prints can help you relax and remind you of warm summers, even as you shower in the middle of winter. A pale blue shower curtain with a raindrop or dewdrop pattern can add a fresh, outdoorsy feel perfect for the summer season. If you want to shower like a queen, Victorian shower curtains with ruffles and a 'frou frou' look can provide that rich, opulent look. Japanese or Oriental-inspired curtains evoke peace and calm, and will fit in with a contemporary or minimalist theme. Browsing through designer shower curtains can get your creative juices running and help you find design ideas. There are dozens of curtain styles to choose from, and with a little imagination, you can easily find a shower curtain that both suits your personality and looks great in your bathroom.

Designer ideas

Designer shower curtains are available in virtually all colors and designs. Going to bathroom stores or warehouses will lead you to hundreds, or thousands of wonderful off-the-shelf options.  For example, if you decide on a blue color motif or a seaside bathroom theme, you could go with a shimmery cotton satin curtain with jewels tones and thin stripes, made available by Old faithful Lands End.  For an Art Deco design theme, Restoration Hardware offers a Pintucked Satin Shower Curtain that is mostly white but with a pink and black accent.  A bohemian touch can be achieved with a Ruby Killim shower curtain by Saffron Marigold, providing a handcrafted design with rich gold and red prints. Other popular designer shower curtains include the Belvedere Fringe shower curtain by the  Bombay Company, a rich pattern of amber and gold; the Ribbon Shower curtain by Garnet Hill, with its grosgrain ribbons in deep tones, and the Elegant Button shower curtain by the Green Culture Housewares, made from 100% natural fabrics.  You can also opt for custom designs offered by some bathroom stores, or you can always customize your own shower curtains using by stamping, dyeing,  or stitching patterns.
