Curtain Shower Size Guide

Transforming your bathroom into a personal sanctuary is a breeze with our step-by-step guide. Ready to unravel the secret to picking the perfect shower curtain? Let's go!

Step 1: Know the Standards

Shower Curtains Standard Sizes

Standard shower curtains are typically sized at 70 inches wide and 72 inches long, a common choice for many bathrooms. However, we understand that each bathroom has its distinct characteristics. For those looking beyond the usual, we offer a range of extra-wide and extra-long curtain sizes. These include:

  • 70 x 70 inches
  • 70 x 72 inches
  • 70 x 84 inches or 72 x 84 inches for taller showers
  • 144 x 72 inches for wider showers
  • 54 x 78 inches for shower stalls

Among these choices, the 72 x 72 inches dimension is frequently favored. This size elegantly covers a 60-inch tub, leaving an extra 12 inches for full enclosure.

In addition to the common choice, there are also other standard dimensions such as 70 x 70 inches, 70 x 72 inches, and 74 x 74 inches. Whether you have an artistically designed shower or a snug corner of comfort, our assortment caters to your needs.

Step 2: Grab Your Tape Measure

Here's a pro tip - whether it's straight or U-shaped, choose a rod that surpasses your shower's actual width by approximately 4-12 inches. This not only ensures a perfect fit but also adds depth and visual appeal to your bathroom. Don't forget to measure the height too. Ideally, the base of your curtain should hover about 1 inch from the floor.

Step 3: Don't Forget the Liner

Meet the unsung hero - the liner. It's your curtain's personal shield against water and mildew. If you opt for a liner, remember it should be roughly the same size as your curtain.

Step 4: Choose Your Style

Make your pick! Single Panel curtains for the minimalists, Double Panel curtains for a dash of luxury. For standalone showers, cozy up with Shower Stall Curtains.

Step 5: The Finishing Touches

Before you dash off, keep these points in mind:
- Material: Fabric or plastic? Remember, fabrics may need a liner to keep them safe.
- Design and Colors: Pick a design that shouts out 'team spirit' with your bathroom.
- Hooks and Rings: Most of our shower curtains come with 12 rings for convenience.
- Maintenance: After every shower, let your curtain stretch out a bit. Pull it open to keep it dry, fresh, and mildew-free. Don't forget to check the care label too!
