The shower curtain is divided into three parts: the curtain body, the shower curtain rod and the hook. There are also shower curtains that are hung directly from the ceiling, but this is not common.
There are various materials for shower curtain rods, such as wood, bamboo, plastic or alloy materials. Shower curtain rods are generally installed in different positions and shapes according to different positions and shapes of the shower area. The most common straight shower curtain rods are usually fixed on opposite walls of the bathroom; semicircular or semi-curved shower curtain rods are mostly used in the shower area of larger bathrooms.
In addition to traditional plastic and cloth, the materials of the curtain body include polyvinyl chloride (PVC), environmental protection material PEVA, wooden curtains, bamboo curtains, nylon, spring sub-textile, satin cloth, satin sliver. Silk, thickened oxford, etc. And there are different colors and designs according to the different styles of the bathroom. The most common materials for hooks are plastics and alloys.
There are generally several issues to pay attention to when choosing a shower curtain.
First, the water retaining strip, many owners think that it is enough to lay the floor of the shower area inclined to the floor drain, but the drainage speed of the floor drain is slower than that of the shower flushing. Therefore, the floor of the shower area should be installed with water retaining strips. The water retaining strip must be laid on the outside of the shower curtain, so that the water does not flow down the shower curtain to the outside of the shower area. It is best to choose a natural stone water retaining strip, with a thickness of 1 to 2 cm, and choose a mildew-proof high-quality glass glue to lay it on the periphery of the shower curtain.
Second, the way the shower curtain is hung. One is to install the flexible shower curtain track, and the other is to install the shower curtain rod. Special attention should be paid to the installation of flexible shower curtain tracks. Nowadays, aluminum gussets will be installed in bathrooms, and flexible shower curtain tracks will be installed on aluminum gussets. Therefore, it is necessary to determine the specific installation position of the track, and then reinforce the keel at the corresponding position. The shower curtain rod is divided into two types: expansion rod and nut fixed on the wall. If you use a straight shower curtain rod at home, and there are wall support points on both sides, you can choose an expansion rod. This kind of shower curtain rod is easy to install and move, and you can also take a bath towel and the like. For the curved shower curtain rod, it is better to choose the one with both ends fixed on the wall with nuts.
Third, the choice of shower curtain. The length of the shower curtain must be appropriate, and the hem is preferably about 2 cm away from the ground. Choosing the right shower curtain can add a lot of color to your bathroom.
