If you are tired of the same old shower curtain, then a shower curtain with a hinged cover will be perfect for you. They also have many benefits including easier cleaning and easier removal. Here is how to put a shower curtain over shower doors.
First of all, you need to measure the width and length of your shower doors. You may not have any room left to make changes after you’ve measured it, but it will still be a big help if you do.
Next, you need to decide how many shower curtains you are going to buy. There are lots of different sizes and styles. Some people choose ones that fit exactly, while others like to change the look of their shower curtain each time they want to use it.
Now that you know the size of your shower door, it’s time to figure out the size of the shower curtain you want to use. To do this, simply take the measurements you took above and get them from your local store or by using the internet.
Now that you have the measurements you can use, you need to figure out how large you want your shower curtain to be. You can choose between pieces that can cover the entire door, ones that fit inside it or you can choose one that fits just a bit under the opening.
After you have chosen the right shower curtain, it’s time to get down to the easy part. Simply pop the shower curtain over the opening and stick it in place. It won’t come off until the water is turned off.
If you don’tfeel comfortable putting the shower curtain over the door, then you can take it off easily by unscrewing the two screws that hold it to the shower panel. There should be about five screws. Be careful when removing it as there are small parts around that could potentially be dangerous.
You can now remove the shower curtain. Put it somewhere out of the way so that you can be sure that no one sees it. You should be able to put a new shower curtain over it or you can reuse it.
If you decide to replace it, you will probably need to purchase an extra plastic curtain. If you take the time to measure for your new shower curtain before buying it, you may be able to find a cheap curtain that will fit, but it won’t be cheap.
If you decide to remove the shower curtain and take it apart, you may want to consider using a non-toxic caulk to prevent leaks in the future. You can find a good non-toxic kind of caulk at your local drug store or home improvement store.
When removing the shower curtain, be sure to do it carefully. Always work in a well ventilated area.
The key to adding a shower curtain over a shower door is to take the measurements carefully and be creative. When you add a shower curtain to your bathroom, it is sure to increase the value of your home.
