Bathroom Curtains From Shabby To Chic

Unless you live in one of those wonderful homes with bathrooms the size of Jupiter, (and if you do, congratulations you lucky dog!) it’s likely that you have at least one bathroom with the bath and shower combined.  Let me tell you about curtains!  Not just boring old shower curtains, but the kind of curtains that typically flank your living room window.  WOW! can they add an elegance to your bathroom that will knock you off your feet, and right into the tub!

Years ago I was so tired of the plain same ole’, same ole’ bathroom look that I went on the hunt for suitable curtains to dress things up a bit.  I found some great linen tab-top curtains and a valance (which didn’t go with the tab-tops, but matched just great), bought 2 spring tension shower rods, came home and adorned my boring shower/bath.  I added some tie backs I found in the same color (again, didn’t go with either the curtains or the valance, but worked very well). What a difference!  You’re probably wondering about the 3 curtain rods; one for the shower curtain which you still need (unless you have a glass surround), one for the tab-tops, and another one for the valance.  No problem.  The valance has a little ruffle gathered at the top and you can’t see the other two rods.  See what I mean?  You’ll love your new princess bath.

These were all on sale and very inexpensive.  It made a huge difference in the look and feel of the bathroom.  I would suggest looking for curtains light in weight and washable.  I have washed mine hundreds, okay, dozens of times!  They still look brand new.
