Country Shower Curtains
The history of the shower curtain can be traced back to ancient Greece. Greek vases and
murals depict the use of a curtain in wash rooms. Lord Monboddo, a famous evolutionary theorist in 18th century
Scotland (pre-dating Charles Darwin), showered everyday on his front porch claiming that it was an essential part
of maintaining cleanliness as practiced by the Greeks.
In today’s society, a shower curtain is an important design feature of any bathroom. The
curtain will block the spray from the shower head. The simplicity of this function belies the unlimited quantity of
designs that are available to be used in the home. Personal style becomes the main point in the creation and design
of a room that imbues a spa-like feel.
Different types of country shower curtains are popular in themed bathrooms that emphasize
the idyllic quality of rural life. The room for bathing is a secluded and private retreat that evokes emotions of
relaxation and tranquility. The traditional consumer seeking to give their room a facelift may turn to the shower
curtain as the focal point of the room.
Scenes depicting old farmhouses, farm animals, rolling mountains and colorful valleys are
just a few of the many ideas that a design could focus on. Rustic items can be placed around the room that is
similar in design and color. For example, the trendy theme of roosters can be repeated throughout the decor in
soap, trash cans, and so forth.
One of the most original country shower curtains is a handmade curtain created by quilting
denim blocks together. The denim can be collected from previously worn clothing items that may not be useful
anymore. A handmade country shower curtain is one way to personalize a room to create that feeling of
Patterned material could be substituted in place of denim. Iconic symbols can be used such
as stars, bird houses, floral pieces, etc. The list is only limited to the imagination.
Whether a consumer is seeking to remodel or facelift a room, the shower curtain becomes
the main attraction. Considering this important design feature is the first step in the creative process. By
gathering samples of country patterns and scenes, it becomes easier to narrow down the personal style of the
homeowner. Once the theme is decided upon, the renovation can begin whether it is a simple paint job replacing
outdated furnishings or a demolition job requiring outside help.
