I am fitting out a house for a future airbnb listing and its the first time ive had to buy a shower curtain.
Ive used them in hotels and other airbnbs, but im not sure what to look for when purchasing one. I do like the weighted ones so they don’t stick to you, and I was thinking white to go with the colour scheme, but I have no idea on material. Do I need to spend a fortune to get something decent or are the $30 ones from Bunnings (hardware shop) ok?
Get the weighted kind, anything else is flimsy and annoying
They get nasty very quickly if you don’t treat and wash them and air out regularly so…
Don’t go too high-end, it’s not worth it. No matter how often you wash them, you will need to replace them at least every 8- 10 months
Nobody really cares about the pattern…it’s a shower curtain and therefore already a bit crap, so just go plain white
Always have a back-up because of that guest who will blithely dye their hair and not care that it gets all over the place and stains
Make sure guests know that it goes INSIDE the tub when they shower. Really, really, really make sure. Many people do not understand (particularly from countries who are used to wet rooms) and your bathroom floor will be flooded.
I am a tad puzzled here. I have a shower curtain and a shower liner. The curtain never gets nasty. It never gets wet. The liner gets wet, but I don’t find that they get nasty all that often. After 1 year of 98% occupancy, I have replaced.
Really? Maybe I’m not such an expert after all I am sceptical of anything that claims to be mold and mildew resistant though, to be honest, because nothing is really. Actually, it’s not mold so much (I don’t let it get that far) but the general …I don’t know… stainy scummy look that doesn’t just wash out easily. Maybe it’s the type of water??
