More and more users realize the importance of wet and dry separation of the bathroom, so it is the most mainstream practice to make a partition in the bathroom during decoration. In many partitions, the status of the custom shower curtain is always irreplaceable-especially in the small bathroom with two functions (shower area and toilet area) in the wet area, the shower curtain is almost the only method of separating wet and dry.
So what are the precautions in the purchase of shower curtains, and what are the taboos in the process of installing shower curtains? These are the two issues we are addressing today.
Shower curtain purchase
When choosing a shower curtain, we should pay attention to two issues-the material of the shower curtain and the size of the shower curtain.
Currently, shower curtains on the market are mainly made of two materials: polyester and PEVA.
Friends who like to buy clothes will not be too unfamiliar with the word "polyester". This is a kind of fabric made of fiber-it feels like cloth when it feels, but it is actually polyester. When polyester is used on a shower curtain, some waterproof measures are usually made to make the shower curtain more practical.
PEVA is a combination of PE and EVA-both materials are plastic, combined, or plastic. The difference is that the texture of the PE material is very poor, hard and light, and environmental protection is not good; EVA is the latest type of environmentally friendly material, and it looks higher.
When buying a shower curtain made of PEVA, you need to carefully distinguish the proportion of PE and EVA components-the higher the proportion of EVA, the better the shower curtain.
In general, the polyester shower curtain has better drape and feel, even comparable to curtains, and of course the price will be slightly higher (but still within the acceptable range of ordinary people). The plastic feeling of PEVA is very strong, even if it is a pure EVA shower curtain, you can see at a glance that it is not cloth.
The height of the shower curtain is relatively fixed, 1.8m is the most common, and the longest can be 2m-for specific height requirements, please refer to the floor and ceiling installation height requirements of the shower curtain below.
The width of the shower curtain should be 1.1 to 1.2 times the width of the wall surface, so that the shower curtain has enough folds so as not to be washed up by the water-the folds should not be too much, otherwise it will be too large after being pulled apart.
The finished shower curtain rod is mostly telescopic, so its length is generally a range. When buying, as long as the wall width is within this range. The length of the custom shower curtain rod is fixed, and we only need to provide the wall width to the merchant.
The above “wall width” refers to: the straight shower curtain directly measures the width of the left and right wall surfaces, and the curved shower curtain needs to measure the length of the arc edge.
When designing and installing the shower curtain, three issues need to be paid attention to.
If there are wet and dry water barriers on the ground (recommended), the shower curtain needs to be installed inside the water barrier 1 ~ 2cm (close to the wet area), not on the same plane as the water barrier.
This is because a lot of water splashes on the shower curtain during the shower. This water will flow down the shower curtain and flow to the ground-if the shower curtain and the water strip are on the same level, the water may drip on the water strip or directly outside the water strip (Especially when the shower curtain flushes the shower curtain).
The distance between the shower curtain and the ground should be 2 ~ 5cm: if the shower curtain is mopping the floor, the wet shower curtain will be covered with mud on the ground, which is very disgusting. If the shower curtain is too high, when the water on the shower curtain falls on the floor, there may be a large splash.
The distance between the shower curtain rod and the ceiling should be about 30cm. This is done to make the room look better, and the shower curtain will not stick like a pillar when it is opened.
The second is to allow ventilation on the top, so as not to be too stuffy when taking a bath-although the shower curtain is already breathable compared to the shower room.
