We also like the Threshold Light Stripe Shower Curtain Grey & White for its neutral stripe pattern, which we also think will look good in most bathrooms. At around $20, this model is the cheapest 100-percent cotton shower curtain we tested. The soft, almost linen-like feel stood out among the polyester and heavy cotton curtains we tested. Note, though, that the color of this curtain is more of a tan than gray. If you’re looking for a bolder patterned shower curtain, we recommend checking out the rest of the Threshold line. Decorative shower curtains can be surprisingly expensive, but Threshold has some great patterns at the most reasonable prices we’ve seen. Several of our staff members own shower curtains from the brand and like them.

Also great $45 from Bed Bath & Beyond An all-in-one option Hookless Waffle Fabric Shower Curtain The large grommets on this curtain fit quickly and easily around any curtain rod, so you don’t need to buy shower curtain hooks. Unlike other curtains, it also comes with a snap-on polyester liner. If you’d prefer more of an all-in-one option for your bathroom—and you don’t mind a somewhat industrial, hotel-like look—the Hookless Waffle Fabric Shower Curtain is another great choice. It’s easy to hang without separate hooks, and it comes with a snap-on liner, so if you’re starting from scratch, the only thing you need to complete your shower setup is a curtain rod. We also like the semitransparent top panel, which makes this curtain an ideal pick for windowless bathrooms or shower stalls without an overhead light.

The Threshold Waffle Weave Shower Curtain White is the best option if you’re seeking an affordable shower curtain that will look good in nearly any bathroom. The heavy waffle-weave fabric drapes nicely, doesn’t wrinkle, and looks better than any other white shower curtain we saw at such an affordable price. The material is also extremely durable. The curtain’s metal grommets make it easier to hang than competitors without grommets, and they help to reinforce the fabric. All the curtains we tested shrank a little, but the Threshold Waffle Weave, which is made from a cotton/polyester blend, shrank less than the other cotton curtains we tested, and only slightly more than those made from polyester.

We spent more than 20 hours researching shower curtains and interviewing two interior designers and one professional house cleaner. Of the seven curtains we tested, the Threshold Waffle Weave Shower Curtain White is our favorite. It offers the best balance of a great price and an easy-to-wash, durable cotton blend (it withstood abuse from a steak knife and cat claws!), and its bright white color and textured weave will look good in nearly any bathroom.

The first measure of a good shower curtain is whether you like the way it looks in your bathroom. Design is subjective, and shower curtains are essentially a “design” purchase. With that in mind, we looked for curtains that would look nice in the largest variety of bathrooms, focusing on those with either a white/neutral tone or those that came in a few solid color options. We based our decision partly on the advice of designer Jeff Schwartz, who told us that a lot of people want their bathrooms to be a clean, “spa-like” environment rather than a “riot of color.”

Compared with other tested curtains, the Threshold Waffle Weave didn’t have any particular trouble drying, but because it’s a bit heavier than your average curtain—and made from a 60 percent cotton, 40 percent polyester blend—it will probably retain more moisture than a light cotton or polyester curtain. An effective shower curtain liner should keep this curtain from getting wet. Keep an eye out for mildew, and wash and dry the curtain frequently (ideally, once a month). Also be sure to suspend the curtain high enough that it doesn’t skim the bathroom floor or bath mat; shower curtains should be suspended at least two or three inches above the ground.

The shower curtains we like are easy to clean, and we recommend running them through the wash once a month. The more damp or humid your bathroom is, the more prone the shower curtain is to mold and mildew. Tossing it in with the laundry is the surest way to nip that problem in the bud. All the curtains we recommend are machine washable and can tolerate tumble drying. (If the material is cotton or polyester, the general rule of thumb is that it can take machine washing and drying.)

If you’re doing an entire bathroom overhaul, the designers we spoke to recommend selecting the shower curtain last. It’s just a lot easier (and cheaper) to match your curtains to preexisting wall paint or cabinetry than the other way around. Annie Hall of Annie Hall Interiors even referred to the shower curtain as the “throw pillows” of the bathroom.“The shower curtain is the final accessory that gives the room the punch of color, or pattern, or graphic that pulls the design elements together and can make the room come to life,” said Hall.

Switching out your shower curtain is a simple way to instantly upgrade your bathroom decor without breaking the bank. In addition to being an aesthetic game-changer, shower curtains and shower curtain liners are also a necessity for protecting your floor from overflowing water. So whether you’re in the market for a creative change or just need to stop flooding your bathroom, there’s a splashy solution for you below! More

Hookless curtains have a somewhat industrial look, but they’re especially convenient thanks to grommets that attach directly to the curtain rod and a snap-on fabric liner. The one we tested, the Hookless Waffle Fabric Shower Curtain, features a soft polyester waffle weave that we think will look good in most bathrooms (and it comes in 18 other color options). It also has a semitransparent panel along the top of the curtain, great for shower stalls that lack an overhead light or window.

To get an idea of what makes a good shower curtain—including how to care for them and how to account for subjective design issues—we spoke to three experts: Jan M. Dougherty, a house cleaner who has cleaned thousands of bathrooms and shower curtains; Annie Hall, of Annie Hall Interiors in West Newton, Massachusetts; and Jeff Schwartz, of J. Schwartz Design in Boston. We also combed through a bunch of buying guides, fabric resources, and customer reviews to identify some of the basic requirements, as well as a few dealbreakers.
