15 Shower Curtains Perfect for a Grown Up Bathroom

While walk in showers are a lovely luxury, many of us are stuck with the plain bathtubs that require a shower curtain. It can be easy to go for whales or frogs, especially if you have little ones. But a kids shower curtain only makes you feel like you’re in the wrong bathroom. They don’t care if there are whales or not, as long as you have the bath toys! That is my argument for trading the kiddie curtains for something beautiful and grown up. Something fit for an adult’s bathroom. Here are 15 shower curtains to get you thinking beyond rubber duck patterns and ready for a bathroom makeover.
