Striped waterproof curtains for shower window

Clean Window

Although the description notes that these are kitchen curtains, we’re here to tell you that you can definitely think outside of the box! If you have a dramatic repeating tile pattern on your walls in your shower, adding in a similarly-patterned curtain can help extend the look—or even provide contrast, as works for you!

Here, we found that a striped curtain looked great with a tiled subway pattern, but you should definitely feel free to mix and match as you choose.

Buying Guide

In addition to being an essential element in every bathroom, bathroom window shower curtains are a way of adding a decorative touch to the space as well. For some, decorating the bathroom can pose a challenge. Therefore, picking the right window shower curtains makes all the difference when styling this area. Because there are endless options available, it can be difficult to make selections that are functional and difficult if you're unsure what you want. We're going to go over some essential details to help narrow your focus.

Waterproof window shower curtain give the privacy you need while showering, but also serve a decorative purpose. Therefore, selecting vinyl window curtains is a convenient option because they'll easily dry after getting wet without the worry of rot or mold occurring. In addition to being simple to install and being inexpensive, they're also easy to maintain and clean. You'll find them in a myriad of designs and colors, so matching them to the style and decor of your bathroom shouldn't be a problem.

If you'd like to use traditional curtains instead of vinyl, you can create waterproof bathroom curtains by "waterproofing" the fabric. For those who would prefer not to do this, the best way to accomplish this goal is to take the curtains to the dry cleaner, and they'll waterproof the fabric for you. Otherwise, you'll need to purchase a product that will create waterproofing fabric. Read the product's instructions for how to care for the material first, which is typically washing it to rid it of any chemical treatments and avoid any fabric softeners or scented cleaners. When applying the fabric waterproofing product, be sure to work in a well-ventilated area and to test a small section of the material before beginning.

If you purchase vinyl shower curtains for the window in your shower, these will last the longest. You’ll still need to clean them regularly to prevent soap from building up and mildew from growing. If you opt for creating waterproof curtains, they’ll need to be taken down at least once per month to be washed. In between washings, you’ll need to wipe them down to ensure there isn’t mold, mildew, or soap scum building up. The window behind the bathroom shower curtains will also need to be wiped down following each shower. Otherwise, it’ll begin growing mildew. To help with maintaining your shower curtains and the window, you can use “after shower” sprays to prevent mold from forming.

Depending on where you purchase your bathroom window shower curtains and the materials they’re made from, you’ll find the costs will vary. For example, you can find vinyl window curtains ranging from $9.99 and $39.99. If you would like to waterproof the material, costs for those curtains could range between $12.99 and $59.99.
