Sometimes the most basic bath décor items can make a big difference in the quality of your bathing experience. Shower curtain rods, hooks and rings are a good example – no doubt you have struggled with a shower curtain or liner that does not slide freely; you tug, you pull and over time you tear the liner or shower curtain. By upgrading the shower curtain hooks or rings with top quality models the curtain and liner will slide more freely; if the curtain rod is corroded you may wish to add a decorative plastic rod sleeve which will also help the curtain and liner to slide more easily.

Dual shower curtain and liner rods are another good option as it puts less demand on each rod and with two rods you create more air space; better air circulation can help to reduce the possibility of mold and mildew. The installation of a curved shower curtain rod can help to create extra elbow room in the bath or shower and it may help to prevent the annoyance of a billowy shower curtain or liner. A curved shower curtain rod may require new mounting hardware.

Modern bath and shower hardware can make any powder room or bathroom look and work better. Often the bath and shower vanities can get dated over time, especially in the moist and humid environment of a bathroom. While replacement may not be an option you can easily update the look and functionality of a mundane vanity by installing new drawer pulls or cabinet handles. The addition of a lighted makeup or vanity mirror is another useful improvement.
