Spring cleaning time is around the corner and February is the best time to get a head start. Focus on your bathroom this month while everything is on sale! We found gorgeous shower curtains under $50 for our 5 favorite decor styles. Fabric curtains should be washed regularly and can last a year or more. To help remove stains, use a small amount of detergent with a half-cup of vinegar or bleach (not both). We like doubling up less-expensive vinyl liners to help extend the life of our more costly fabric curtains. Liners can be replaced more frequently and battle mold and mildew better as well.

French Country

If your style is French country, then you probably relish in the little details. Print mixing with florals is always a good idea. Shower curtains with cheery polka dots give your bathroom a little “oh la la”! This Kate Spade New York Deco Dot shower curtain for $49.99 is just what we had in mind. It’s 100% cotton and comes in the standard 72 x 72 size. Add a fresh bouquet by your sink and pretty up your pout. Start adding French vocabulary to your repertoire. “I suppose you think I’m very brazen or très fou or something” (Holly Golightly, Breakfast at Tiffany’s).

Mid-Century Modern

Mid-century modern bathrooms usually place most of the focus on tile. Not ready to do a home improvement project just yet? Add some mid-mod flair to your space easy with shower curtains in retro prints. Urban Outfitter’s Peaches Shower Curtain is $39 and makes us think of pinups and pie. Who can argue with that? It also boasts a 100% cotton fabric that is machine washable in the standard 72 x 72 size. We love the bright pop of orange color, especially in a small space or combined with natural woods.  Add some geometry with our favorite hexagon ideas or one of our favorite geometric mirrors.  The smallest details can make a huge impact and doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg.

Keep the coziness going! We love Hygge decor and its enjoyment of simple pleasures. Shower curtains can add a little Hygge to your bathroom with prints in simple florals or botanicals. IKEA’s Rosenfibbla Shower Curtain is $9.99 and has a nice botanical print that is easy on the eyes. Not bad for a 71 x 71 curtain that boasts a densely-woven polyester fabric with water-repellent coating. Hygge is all about keeping it simple and going easy on your pocketbook.
