Quick Quiz (Don’t worry, this won’t be graded.): Name all the places you can use curtains in a bathroom. If you mentioned shower curtains, you only got part of the answer correct. There are many other ways to use curtains in the bathroom that you may not have thought about.
KEEP IT PRIVATE
Many bathrooms are shared spaces. If you want to be able to use the toilet in private, you can install a privacy curtain in front of or around it. This gives you the privacy you need but using the softer look of fabric instead of a door. Curtains also have the advantage in a small bathroom because you don’t need extra floor space in front of them when they are opened, as you would if you had a door in front of the toilet. The toilet alcove in the image below used privacy curtains and 84004 curtain track.
KEEP IT HIDDEN
Too often, bathrooms in homes have open storage. It may be built-in shelves or shelving that you added later yourself. The problem is that the cleaning products, towel and rolls of toilet paper on those shelves can be unsightly. There is a way to keep the shelves and what’s on them out of sight. Yup, you guessed it – curtains. A flexible curtain track can be hung from the ceiling and bent around to cover exposed shelving. If you have built-in shelves, a simple straight track hung from the ceiling will work.
YES, SHOWERS, TOO
Of course, there are curtains for showers, too. We have several types of water-resistant materials to choose from when picking your shower curtains. All of them have a 1 3/8-inch triple-thick top hem and a 1 1/8-inch reinforcement header strip. Width tolerance with within 2 inches short or long and height tolerance is within 1 inch short or long. No matter which type of curtain you get, be sure to multiply the length of your shower curtain track by 20 percent and add that to the track length to find the correct curtain width for your shower.
