Simple Ideas For Shower Curtains

in Curtain

It is a shower curtain top that affixes to the curtain rings and frames the top of your shower. It's sole purpose is for decoration. There are as many shower tops as there are different curtains. With some looking you may find one to spruce up your dull curtain.


A top can add a little flare to a rather plain curtain. You can put a curtain top in a complimentary color above your shower curtain for contrast.


Placing a top above a curtain with an interesting pattern, print or picture can act like a frame. Look at your shower and choose a color that would accent your curtain. For instance a black curtain top could frame a curtain that has a landscape scene on it. A dark blue curtain top might complement an ocean scene on your curtain.


Another interesting use of a curtain top is to place it above a clear, white or black vinyl curtain. The top part of your curtain is actually the focus. Find a curtain top with an interesting texture or pattern.


When shopping for a top you need not worry too much about fabric or mildew resistance, since the topper usually is not in contact with the water.


When shopping for a shower curtain with pockets keep a few things in mind:


A mildew resistant curtain with pockets is recommended. With the addition of bath products to the pockets; mold and mildew may find an environment to grow. A mildew resistant curtain with pockets will help prevent this. If your favorite curtain with pockets is not mildew resistant; you can soak it in salt water when you buy it and they launder it every two weeks with detergent, one cup of vinegar and one cup of baking soda.


Shower curtain pockets are less likely to mildew if they are made of mesh. The mesh allows water to drain and gives mold less fibers to grow in.


When minimal is the key, perhaps due to a small bathroom or just a low key décor; a curtain topper above a shower with pockets is an ideal way to achieve this.


Pair a shower curtain top and a shower curtain with pockets and you have a functional and decorative curtain that is an expression of your unique and personal style. The combinations that you can come up with are endless.
