Shower curtain

Shower curtain
It's been a hard day: you worked a lot, or maybe you studied a lot, and you are extremely tired. You arrive home, walking through the door, and you can think of just one thing - you want to relax. Or, it's early in the morning and you had to wake up, but you still feel sleepy so you need something to gain enough energy for the day. In both cases, a shower is the answer! Showers have this insane ability of being both relaxing and bracing, they are not only useful to keep us clean and not messy, but also a great way to help our body. So it make sense to trying to make your shower the perfect place! One of the options is having a shower curtain: many people hate some of them, in particular they hate those made of plastic, those terrible cheap piece that often get stuck to your body giving you a unpleasant feel, making you feel both dirty and very cold. But not all shower curtains are like that! There are very good quality curtains, made with extremely good material, like fabric, and with a lot of elegant decorations on them. Maybe they can have just like flowers, a easy to go decoration that never go wrong, but sometime they can have more elaborate designs, making your bathroom feel like a luxury place. Like I said, there are good shower curtains but they must have some very specific characteristics. For example, since in the shower there are - of course! - a lot of water, they would need to be water repellant. And since when you go into the shower you often aren't very clean, and because with that much water a bit of mold will form on the walls around, they also need to be antibacterial, and anti mold. And again, since they will eventually become dirty and messy, they must be washable! And for this, you would appreciate a curtain that is easily removable. Quick, easy to clean, and clean on its own: the perfect curtain exist.

I Love Shower Curtains

Shower curtains are not that expensive and they come with all kinds of pretty pictures and designs. You can do amazing things to your bathroom with a shower curtain. But I'm not much when it comes to bathroom decor, home decor or interior decorating. So don't listen to me. LOL.

This is what I have

As much as I would like to have a shower cabin, I simply cannot afford it. So therefore, I'm stuck with my Shower curtain and it serves my bathing needs completely that I don't have anything to nag about. Maybe in the future I would afford to get a shower cabin but for now, it's me and Shower curtain.

curtain

we Have a shower cabin and I honestly don't like all the work that I need to do in order to maintain the clarity of the glass. It's tedious. Believe me it's not worth getting this expensive thing. A shower curtain is better since you can easily replace it when it gets torn.

Shower cabin

Shower cabin
What do we want when we take a shower? Sure, we want to be clean, we want a bit of relax and all things like that, but there is one thing more that we want, often underestimated: privacy! I mean, we are in the shower, we don't want a random person to come in and see us and invade our privacy! And if you think that this can't happen because the people outside would hear the noise of the shower, you never lived with other people in the same apartment. Of course a shower curtain would be the minimum, but does that give us enough privacy? I mean, it's just a curtain, it doesn't feel that safe... It could fall off any minute now. Maybe the better option would be a shower door, or even better - a shower cabin! Sure, if you shower is inside a corner you might just need a door and you are good to go, but you might want to build the whole cabin to have the most elegant shower place that you can imagine! And yes, build... It's not just a curtain, a shower cabin need time, need effort, and you need money to build it. Someone will need to take measures, to make sure the shower cabin fits perfectly in your bathroom. And it will cost a lot: maybe some kind of cabins will cost a bit less, but either way it will be way more expensive than a simple curtain. But for many people the cost is worth it: a cabin can be made with many different material, some more fragile than others, but all very good, and it's usually easier to clean than a curtain. Unless something bad and serious happen, you won't need to substitute it with another door. So that's the question you should ask yourself when takigna shower cabin: is the price worth it? Probably yes.

Cabin

I absolutely hate the shower curtains because they're so useless. We have been using shower cabin for as long as I remember but whenever we go traveling and we stay at the hotels, they have the curtains.

The shower curtains are easy to rip down or apart, they don't actually contain water because it splashes all over and they get very dirty really fast.

On the other hand, the cabins completely close you off and keep the water in the shower plus they're easy to clean up.

Elegant and convenient.

For most of my life I had a bathtub/shower combo, and therefore had to use a shower curtain. At the time, I was content with it. Then when I renovated the place I'm currently living in, I decided that I'd put a glass shower cabin into my bathroom. Now, I don't think I could ever go back to just a standard shower curtain. Because it is a cabin, I could fully customize the wall/floor tiles to my liking, and the glass sliding doors are both convenient and elegant. If you can afford it, a cabin is way better.

Cabin - 100% better!

Of the two options - my choice without a doubt - would definitely be this one - a shower cabin.

Particularly as - not only are they more practical in the sense that they are way easier to maintain as well as keep clean - but - unlike shower curtains - they keep the water in - meaning - they avoid the problems of having to deal with an abundance of water leaking out and drenching not just the floor of the bathroom or shower room - but anything else in the vicinity.

Apart from which they look way neater too.

Looks good!

I have to go with shower cabins , they look good, they are cleaner than the curtins and they seem easier to clean too, they are pretty elegant. The bad thing, they can be really expensive and hard to mantain if something goes wrong with them.

I love to shower in the cabin

Shower cabin is my choice when I want to take a bath. Because I don't feel comfortable in shower curtain. It's like there are people who wants to disturn your privacy! So cabin is the right choice if someone needs privacy. Because shower is one way to relax ourselves. So it is way better if we are comfortable during shower time than be disturb by just a curtain.

I have a bathroom and I get shower in my bathroom. There is no shower curtain or shower cabin in my bathroom, however, I think having a shower cabin is a cool idea.

I prefer shower cabins as they look more splendid and are easier to clean. As for shower curtains you need to buy new ones quite often. The good thing with shower curtains are that there are different designs available.

I like to choose cabin shower because it is elegant, and nice. A shower cabin, especially a steam shower cabin, provides an exceptional bathing experience combining the convenience and functionality of a shower along with the luxurious and healthy benefits of steam. Programmable convenience – before even setting foot inside the shower cabin you can switch the steam on remotely or select your preferred water temperature for showering. Steam – if you’ve ever experienced a steam session at a spa or health club, you’ll love being able to take advantage of this feature in your very own shower cabin at home. It’s exhilarating, relaxing and also provides long term health benefits if used regularly. Aromatherapy – many shower cabins offer the ability to take advantage of aromatherapy while showering. It’s as easy as inserting your favorite aromatherapy oils in the steam outlet to enjoy the relaxing benefits of aromatherapy while showering. But of course it is expensive only can afford people can buy this cabin and it depends also in your house if it is compatible.

I have no experience with shower cabins. I go for shower curtains this is because it is easier to clean. I can change the colors whenever I need and they are cheaper and easier to use. I like the simplicity of shower curtains but I won't hesitate to try something new.

Shower curtains are a nightmare. Seriously, they never fit in the proper way, so water goes out and everything gets wet. Also, no matter what you do they always remain wet, so eventually they get full of fungus and stuff, which can get you sick. Cabins are just great, they never let the water goes out, you can use a cloth after shower and that way stop humidity, they last like forever so you don't have to be buying curtains every month, and they look more elegant and fancy.

We have a shower curtain but my husband is complaining that after I take a bath, there is too much soap on the floor that is outside the bathing area. He is hinting that we may be needing a shower cabin. But our bathroom is pretty small. It is the original design of the first owner so we cannot do anything about it. But the shower curtain has served its purpose although not all the time that’s why the soap sometimes escapes to the floor.

I don't have a shower curtain or cabin, but if I don't need to worry about the budget, I would prefer to have shower cabin, as it seems to be neater. I don't really like the material of shower curtain as it's usually plastic, and it can be dirty easily and not so easy to clean. I prefer shower cabin as it's usually made of glass and I suppose it's easier to clean, but it's more expensive too. Moreover, if we have the shower cabin, we can close the door tightly and the water won't be spilled out.
