The shower curtain has finally gained respect as a key design element in the bathroom. A shower curtain is used in shower enclosures or with bathtubs that double as showers. They provide privacy to the person using the shower or bathtub and reduce the chance that water will spray outside the shower or tub area. There are some different types of shower curtains for bathrooms. For instance, eco-friendly shower curtains. Organic natural fibers transform an ordinary shower curtain into an eco-friendly option. Unusual fibers, such as linen-flax blends, bamboo and hemp, make durable, sustainable shower curtains that fit perfectly into green home design. The other options of different types of shower curtains include plastic, vinyl, fabric and nylon.
