A shower curtain rod can be the unsung hero of your bathroom, holding up your curtains and adding style to your room without calling attention to itself. But when it comes to decorating around one, you can do much more than just tack up curtains (though that’s a great place to start). Use this guide on shower curtain rods as inspiration for getting creative with your own!
1) DIY Shower Curtain Rod Hangers
Everyone who has ever installed a shower curtain knows that there’s more than one way to do it. Sure, you can buy traditional metal hangers, but you can also install wooden dowels or rods—or even make your own from decorative branches, twigs and greenery. Depending on how much time you have and what materials are at hand, here are some great ways to get creative with drapery rods for showers.
2) Use Shower Curtain Holders with Artwork
If you have a shower curtain with artwork, framing it is a great way to show off your sense of style. Hanging a shower curtain on a wall provides an opportunity for you to put art anywhere—even in areas without room for larger frames or pictures. And if you have matching artwork and shower curtains, buying matching holders is also a stylish choice. A few duschdraperistång badkar from Amazon include Sauder’s Framed Shower Curtain Hardware and Moen’s Delta Collection Shower Rod, which comes in multiple finishes. To hang a shower curtain holder, screw it directly into drywall (make sure you’re hanging it on solid wall studs) so that all four sides are supported and level with each other. Then, hang up your shower curtain!
3) Try Multi-colored Curtains
In small spaces, curtains will help define an area and make a room appear more open. If you need some ideas on how to spruce up boring white sheers, check out these photos of gorgeous colorful curtains. They offer a great way to add a pop of color while still letting in light and views. Try matching stripes with your shower curtain rod angle or mixing multiple patterns together for added texture. Curtains are a fun, inexpensive way to add some personality and flair to any bathroom!
4) Go Geometric with Striped Shower Curtain Rails
They’re eye-catching and modern, but it’s not just fashion choices that make geometric shower curtain rails a great choice. Many choose them in order to take a bit of load off of shower walls; without a shelf or other draperistång on which hang towels and clothes, you won’t see sagging at all.
5) Hang Colored Sheer Curtains Over White Sheer Curtains
White sheer curtains are a classic solution for open shelving, but when it comes to showers and tubs, white sheer curtains don’t give you much visual interest. Consider hanging colored curtains over top of them for a pop of color without adding any significant change in privacy. Keep in mind that you may have to hang additional hooks on your shower rod if you choose colored sheer; otherwise, it will slide right off. Use those extra hooks to hang matching towels or decorative items. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy; even small soap holders can dress up any shower look and make great decorating tools. Just make sure they match!
