How To Choose A Shower Curtain (And Liner) For Your Bathroom

The bathroom is one of the most private places in the home and because of this; many manufactured home owners strive to ensure that their bathroom is up to standard. One of the most important accessories is usually a bathroom curtain and liner for the shower.  There are certain key factors one has to take into consideration when shopping for these items. It is important to measure the space or bathroom opening and get a curtain and liner which fit. The standard measurements are usually 72 inches by 72 inches but it is possible to get smaller curtains if your tub is small.
