Some good designs and colors for shower curtains include white curtains with horizontal blue and green pinstripes, white curtains topped with a red panel with a blue design along the bottom, and boldly patterned curtains. Black and white shower curtains also work well in a bathroom, complementing a wide range of color schemes. For instance, a black and white leaf shower curtain highlights a bathroom in shades of pink and cream.
A white shower curtain with a solid black border along the bottom and intricate black designs adds a Victorian touch to a black, white and gray bathroom with dark red towels. The curtain can also match the window treatment for an added touch of unity.
Some good shower curtains come in a variety of designs, such as a rose pattern on top with a paisley border in a dull pink, cream and brown. A plum curtain studded with gold circles and a gold border adds a fancy touch to an otherwise unremarkable bathroom. A maroon curtain printed with tiny elephants and accented in greens and oranges gives a bathroom an exotic Far East look.
Shower curtains can also double as a piece of bathroom art. For instance, a tree printed on a blue-green background with gold dots along the branches gives the illusion of a lit Christmas tree.
