Hi I'm Ann Myrick and today we're going to talk about how high to hang your shower curtain. This is about the normal length. This shower curtain was made and so if we wanted to we could have gone higher. We could have had it made longer so we could have gone up higher. If you buy a shower curtain it is going to be just the normal length but if you have one made you can go up as high as you want to. If the shower curtain has like a topper on it. If it has a lot of times, they will be layered so if there is a layered piece that comes across you probably want to create more of a curtain look than the shower curtain look so you would go up higher and you would have the boarder that hung down and then you would have the shower curtain come all the way down. Your rod, you want to think about the type of rod you are going to use. Do you want a stainless rod? Do you want a plastic rod? The rods, you can measure your space and see the length of your shower rod and then you can just put it up as high as you want but you also want your shower curtain to barely clear the, or to just clear the floor so look at the shower curtains and if you make one think about how high you want it to be. I do like a little area between the ceiling and the shower curtain where the steam can come out so you really want to think about that but there really isn't a big rule. Just have fun with it and think about the style and way you want to create the room to look and then go as high as you like. This is Ann Myrick and that is how you hang the shower curtain.
