top mount curtain rods – If you have a shower over a bath tub then you need a shower curtain to protect against the entire toilet getting wet when you take a shower. Purchase a shower curtain in a design you prefer and which matches the type of your toilet – frequently shower curtains are the biggest colored surface within this little room – therefore it’s important to get it right. Once you get your own shower curtain home, here is how to hang it properly
1. Lay out the Shower Curtain
Open the package and lay the shower curtain out fully on the ground. Shower curtains often have two parts (that you may buy separately). You may have an outer non-waterproof layer and an inner waterproof liner or you may just have one watertight curtain.
If you have an inner and outer drape both may have eyelets at the top. If you have two parts then lay out the liner first. When there is a wrong side and a right side then have the right side facing the ground. Then lay the outer drape on top together with the eyelets at the same finish and with the right side facing outwards. This way you will see that the best side on the liner when you are in the shower and the ideal side of the curtain when you are in the restroom!
Line up the eyelets between both drapes so the holes fit. If you’ve purchased shower curtains and liner separately and the eyelets don’t match you up will be better hanging the drapes separately and using a double (double track) shower rod or rail.
If you have one watertight curtain then just lay it out on the ground.
3. Add the Rings
You will need as many shower curtain rings as there are eyelets in the drapes. Insert one of them into each eyelet.
4. Hang over the Bathtub
Put the curtain rings onto the shower curtain pole or rail that ought to be installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. (You don’t want the entire thing coming down on you in mid-shower).
The interior liner or single shower curtain should be placed inside the tub as you shower to prevent water leaking on the ground. The outer curtain (if you have one) ought to be arranged outside the bathroom tub.
5. After Your Shower
As soon as you’ve showered open the drapes completely – yank them as far as they scale across the length of the pole or rail so that they have a chance to dry – this will help prevent mould.
