Black and White Shower Curtains
If you consider using shower curtains in your bathroom, there are a few factors that should be put into consideration. You can have two layers of shower curtains in your bath tub or shower area: one to stop the water and the other as a decorative accessory. Usually a plastic shower curtain is used as the inner layer as it is a good barrier against water. The other layer can consist of either cloth, vinyl or plastic. Vinyl and cloth shower curtains are not as popular as plastic ones, but they provide more protection against wind and exposure. Plastic curtains have different grades, and price range follows the quality of the shower curtains. Cheap shower curtains are light and flimsy while the expensive ones are heavier and offer better protection from water splashes.
