Of course there are many different kinds of curtain rods, too. Some are just straight across, no frills. While some curve out slightly from the wall, allowing more space in the stall. Others hang down from the ceiling - making a complete circle. These circular curtain rods, are generally seen on older models of tubs and showers and require at least two shower liners/curtains, depending on the type of curtain you choose, and whether or not the shower/tub is connected to a wall. We currently do not carry shower curtain rods.
Shower Curtain Liners
Many shower curtains are made of polyester, vinyl, or PEVA and require no lining. These can be wiped clean, and dry quickly. However, many shower curtains are made of cotton or are a cotton blend, and therefore require a liner. In this case, the curtain is used for decorative purposes, while the liner is used to keep the cotton curtain from getting wet. Liners are available in the same standard sizes as the curtains and can be hung on the same curtain rings as the curtain. Shop our selection of shower curtain liners here.
Shower Curtain Rings
There are a wide variety of curtain rings available for shower curtains. Some are circular, and come in a variety of colors. Some are an inverted pear shape with rolling balls at the top for ease of movement as you pull the curtain back. Some are S hooks with an extra hook on one side for a liner. If the rings are metal, they are generally made of stainless steel so that they do not rust. This is important because they are exposed to a lot of water and moisture for long periods of time.
When picking out the right curtain ring, it is important to consider the shower curtain you have selected. Does it have grommets? Or are there just reinforced slits in the top for the ring? Knowing this will help you select the correct ring for your curtain. The standard shower curtain requires 12 curtains rings and curtain rings are sold in sets of 12, so there should be no issue with not having enough. It might be smart to keep an extra pack around should one break while hanging the curtains, or after a lot of use. Shop our selection of shower curtain rings here.
