“ Brand: H&M / Type: Shower Curtain „
I always replace my shower curtains every 12 months, I normally buy my shower curtains from Ikea as they are really reasonably priced. However I've recently been buying a lot of items from the H&M home range, and so I decided to try one from the H&M home range this time instead.
The shower curtain that I chose is the frilled shower curtain pictured above, I have it in white rather than the bright pink pictured above. The frilled shower curtain is just available in two colours; the white, and the bright pink. Both colours are priced at £14.99 each. I did really fancy the bright pink colour, but unfortunately none of my towels would go with a bright pink shower curtain and so I settled for the white, which will obviously match any decor and any colour scheme.
The shower curtain is machine washable at 40 degrees. I've had this shower curtain for 3 months now, and it's been in the washer three times so far and it still looks as good as new. I wash this on an easy care 40 degree wash, then I remove it from the washer and hang it back up on the shower curtain rings to dry, and it's normally dry within an hour or two. I always choose machine washable shower curtains as I always wash them once a month and I always replace them once a year. I'm a bit of a clean freak, with a massive hygiene obsession and so that's why it's essential that I choose machine washable shower curtains, and that they are not too expensive as I replace them so often. This particular shower curtain fits the bill perfectly on both counts.
The shower curtain is made from a water repellent polyester, and it is slightly weighted at the bottom so that it doesn't cling to you when you are in the shower. It has 12 metal eyelets at the top to hook onto your shower curtain rings. These are not supplied along with the shower curtain, I bought a packet of 12 transparent plastic shower curtain rings from H&M for £1.50 at the same time as my new shower curtain. (I replace my shower curtains rings every 12 months as well!) The shower curtain is 180cm wide by 200cm high, and so it's plenty big enough to use either with a shower stall or over a bath. I have this over the bath in the main bathroom, and it's wide enough to close over the whole length of the bath.
The shower curtain is a plain opaque white colour, and then it has four slim rows of the same shower curtain fabric sewn on to the bottom to create a frilled and ruched effect. The frilled rows are fairly near the bottom of the shower curtain and so my husband has had to higher our shower curtain rail so that the frilled rows are visible above the bath, and even so you can only see three of the four rows peeking out above the bath. So I guess that for some bathrooms where the height of the shower curtain rail isn't adjustable then this frilled shower curtain may not be worth getting if the frills are hidden inside the bath.
I'd definitely recommend this shower curtain, and I'd certainly buy another shower curtain from H&M. They had quite a funky selection of shower curtain designs, and I'm already trying to decide which one I want to get next to replace the shower curtain in our en-suite.
When I moved in to a privately rented house after splitting up with my husband I had to completely set myself up again and so it was a case of getting the essentials in at first and then just topping things up as I went along. Even now three years down the line there are still things which could be better but I have to make do with replacing things as and when I can afford to. Recently when I was having family come to stay I decided that I really needed to get rid of the manky shower curtain which the owners had provided and so I looked on the H&M website for a new one and the one I chose was a bright pink one and this is my review!
The shower curtain can be ordered online from the H&M website and costs £14.99 which I thought was a reasonable price considering that I had free delivery but then I also found a code for five pounds off and so this product cost me just less than ten pounds. The product came packed in a plastic wrapper much like how bedding comes packaged and it was very easy to remove the shower curtain from the pack.
The reason I chose the bright pink shower curtain on the H&M website was the fact that my bathroom is very white! It has a white floor and white tiles pretty much all around, as well as white walls and whilst I wouldn't say it looked clinical as it has a mirror and all my bits and pieces in there to break the white up I do think it needed a flash of colour. I love anything pink and I thought that the shower curtain would really liven the room up.
The curtain is very girly I have to say and the bright pink seems even pinker in the flesh! The curtain is quite pretty as well as it has a layer of four decorative frills towards the bottom of it which just makes it look more decorative than simply a functional piece. The curtain has metal eyelets at the top which did feel very secure and like they will last well as I was inserting the curtain pole rings through them. The curtain pole rings are not provided and you do need to buy these separately but I just used the ones I already had on the old curtain as I would imagine they are quite standard fitting.
The size of the curtain is 180cm by 200cm and this is perfect for my bathroom as I covers the length of the bath when needed and is also nice and long so it hangs nicely off the rail but doesn't look too long and drag on the floor or anything. I like the way the colour looks in my white bathroom and friends and family have commented on how nice it looks and so I am happy with that. I would say that initially I thought my bathroom just seemed darker because of the pink replacing a white curtain but I have got used to this and now it seems normal.
The shower curtain is made from a water repellent polyester and I find that it does a good job of keeping the water from hitting the floor in the bathroom just as long as my son isn't acting the goat in the shower and sending water flying everywhere. The curtain is easy to clean as well and I just use my normal bathroom cleaner to give it a quick wipe down when I clean the bathroom and so far I have no issues at all with it and so I would be more than happy to recommend this pretty but functional shower curtain.
Thank you for reading my review!
