Blind for the bathroom: do or buy
Curtains for the bathroom are often used in urban apartments. These products are needed to prevent splashes and foam from falling onto the floor.
Bath and shower curtains are available. Bath curtain has a small length and is mounted directly above the tank for swimming.
The product for the shower is made in human growth and is designed to protect the bathroom space from splashes and water jets.
A curtain for a bath or shower also helps to solve the problem of using the bathroom by several people at once. Properly selected product hides the one who washes.
Some use curtains for decorative purposes, for zoning space.
The curtain for the bathroom can be bought or made by you at home.
If you decide to save money, you can do it yourself. This will require an opaque oilcloth, a braided capron cord, dowels with hooks and an electric drill. In the store, where the accessories are sold, you need to buy two-piece rings. Such products resemble rivets on jeans, only they with holes inside.
The homemade device begins with drilling holes above the bathroom or in the place where the mixer is installed. In them plastic dowels are hammered into, into which metal hooks are screwed. Then, at one end of the nylon cord, a self-tightening knot is tied, which is attached to one hook. The hinge on the other end is knit so that you can barely reach the second hook in the wall. Now you need to cut the oilcloth along the length that you need, wrap its upper edge by two or three centimeters and rivet this space with rings. It remains to pass the cord into the rings and toss it onto the self-tightening loop on the second hook in the wall. Such a homemade curtain for a bathroom or a shower can be even cheaper if you use clamps on rings for ordinary curtains. But then the oilcloth will quickly tear sharp teeth on metal clothespins.
For the device of the veil, you can use ready-made kits that are sold in markets and stores.
The factory bathroom curtain is supplied with the spacer bar. Inside such a device, consisting of several sections, there is a powerful spring. When you collect the construction, you will need to insert it between the two walls above the bathroom, under the ceiling. This operation requires strength and caution. In order not to break anything, first one end of the pipe is installed at the desired height, then the other side of the device is gradually brought to the required height with slight tapping. The completion of this operation is the fastening of the curtain itself. This is easy to do with the help of special clamps that come with the kit.
In shops and markets, shower curtains are also sold. Such veils cling to aluminum arcs or square structures that are assembled from stainless pipes. Unlike bath accessories, the installation of shower curtains requires the drilling of walls.
Before you buy the product, make sure the strength of the structure. Aluminum pipes should be of such thickness that, if necessary, they could be slightly bent without breaking. Curtains choose from a material that will not be noticeable stains and dirt. Check the number and strength of the accessories in the kit.
