Shower Curtains. The very phrase suggests practical, boring and dull. It’s something that the bathroom needs. Well, it’s true that it’s an essential item if you have a combined shower/bath, but it doesn’t have to be boring! There are some seriously funky curtains out there, and I’ve chosen some of them for you to look at.
1 Black and Grey Leaves
This would look great in a white bathroom, giving just that hint of contrast without being loud. The pattern is very smart, with large black and grey leaves on a white background. Simple and stylish.
2 Rainbow Circles
If your taste is for something more colourful, then this should fit the bill! A riot of pink, blue, yellow, red and green, this will definitely give your bathroom a bit of oomph. Probably not a good choice if you like wild nights out though, as your eyes will hurt the morning after.
3 Marilyn Monroe
Poor Marilyn – ending up as a shower curtain isn’t much of an epitaph. It is very attractive though, as Marilyn was so beautiful that anything with her image on looks good. Note to manufacturers: please, no Marilyn toilet seat covers though.
4 Photo Display
I’ve seen screens that have pockets for photos, so that you can have a varying display of pictures. However, I’m not really convinced by applying the same idea to a shower curtain. Do you really want to feel like your mother can see you naked?
Now, I can see the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, a red phone box and an Underground sign. What, no red bus or Union Jack? That must be an oversight, as I thought anything London-themed had to have those two emblematic symbols …
6 Modern Flowers
Price: $29.99 at cgi.ebay.com
Who knew that shower curtains could be so stylish? This reminds me of a groovy wallpaper design. Most bathrooms would look instantly fab with this curtain hung up – I fear there is no hope for my 70s avocado monstrosity though. It is beyond saving.
Price: $54.99 at cgi.ebay.com
Well I never. Even alternative folks can have the shower of their dreams (at a price). If you don’t want a conventional bathroom, then turn it into a punk palace with this curtain.
If you don’t want a cliched London scene, then how about a cliched Parisian scene, featuring one of those little cafes on a street corner? Apparently, it ‘will make you feel like you are in a Paris café’ – although the clients and ‘patron’ might wonder what you’re doing there dressed only in a towel …
So, what do you think of this selection? Note that there are NO nautical scenes or fish among them! If your bathroom needs a revamp, why not try one of these fab shower curtains? It’s a cheap way of giving the room a new look, and you never know, it might actually make waking up a pleasure!
