It features the proprietary 3M water repellent treatment to ensure that your curtain maintains a newer look for longer. The Madison Park is mildew resistant too so you can bet it will retain its appeal for months.

When you want a spa or hotel-quality shower curtain for your home, this product is a suitable option to consider. It is a well-made shower curtain made from polyester that measures 72 inches long. It is also machine-washable, making it a breeze to clean.

It features a simple, clean waffle textured pattern. Though it appears basic, it is enough to liven up any neutral bathroom whether it’s a high-traffic area or a guest bathroom.

What experts didn't like
We don’t love the plastic, polyester feel of it, and we don’t think the pattern options would look good in a wide variety of bathrooms.

Our small issue with this shower curtain is that it came out a bit wrinkled out of the package.

Delicate fabric prone to tearing/fraying. Creases are sometimes difficult to remove.

An Overview On Shower Curtains

Your shower curtain is one of the easiest ways to add your own personal style to an apartment or a new home. Even if you’re not ready or able to do a full-on renovation, you can completely change the look of your bathroom by swapping in a fresh, colorful shower curtain in a style and pattern that matches your style.

The first thing you’ll need to do is measure the width and height of the area your curtain will cover to ensure you’re shopping for the right dimensions.

You’ll also want to consider how you’ll hang your curtain: with hooks, with the pre-sewn holes at the top, something else entirely? And do you already have a shower curtain rod? If so, which style and size? Some shower curtains come with hooks, though you may want to go hunting for hooks on your own to get the exact material and style you’re going for.

Since your shower curtain lives in your bathroom, you’ll also want to look for a water-resistant material that dries quickly to help prevent mold and mildew.

DYWM Fun Fact

If you’ve ever been in the shower with a lightweight curtain that didn’t have a weighted hem, you may have experienced something called the “shower-curtain effect.” Physicians have actually studied the phenomenon to determine why these curtains billow when no clear air source is causing it to happen. There are multiple theories as to why it happens, including one expert’s conclusion that the spray creates a vortex, with the center of that vortex being a low-pressure region. The low-pressure region draws the shower curtain toward it while also rotating in a way similar to a dust devil. This force is fairly weak, so it generally only affects lightweight shower curtains.

The Shower Curtain Buying Guide

  • Although many shower curtains follow similar sizing guidelines, you’ll find some are slightly longer than others. Measuring your own tub or shower area can help you get the right curtain for your bathroom.
  • You’ll quickly notice that there are a variety of design options. You can choose solids in a variety of colors, subtle patterns like stripes or a bold, fun design like a mountain or beach scene.
  • You may want to purchase a shower curtain liner in addition to your shower curtain. It depends on your personal preference and the material of your shower curtain.
  • Most shower curtains are machine washable, so if that’s a priority for you, be sure to check out the washing instructions before making your purchase.
  • Another important feature found in many shower curtains is a weighted hem at the bottom. This holds the curtain in place while you’re showering.
  • Is privacy a factor? If so, look for thicker material that won’t be as transparent or bold designs that will obscure visibility.
