For my rainbow tile bathroom, I wanted to try something new- how about two curtains on one shower rod? There were a few small tricky things so I thought I’d write a tutorial in case one of you wants to try to make a DIY Double Shower Curtain.
A few weeks ago, I shared this inspiration, but I thought I’d put it up again as a refresh on how pretty this look is. It’s a super easy way to elevate a normal shower curtain.
The second option is to buy drapes and then use a normal shower curtain liner. The beauty of using a drape or curtain is that they come in longer lengths so you can fill the whole space between the floor and the ceiling.
In a room with so many hard surfaces, any added softness goes a long way. Start by measuring the shower curtain liner and draw a line exactly down the center.
You don’t want a messy cut bugging you every time you shower.
Once the line is drawn, cut the shower liner in half with scissors. And now, all that’s left to do is put the drapery panels and cut shower curtain up. The only notable thing with installation is that I folded over the ends of the drapery panel and clipped them onto the sides of the shower curtain liner.
Mine is 60″ wide and I felt like if I had any more extra on the front, it’d hang down too much between the curtain rings. I read lots of tutorials before making my drapes into a diy double shower curtain and some people just clipped holes with scissors.
I like making a button hole because it means it’ll be higher quality, look better longer, and launder nicely.
Another option is to buy a drapery panel with metal grommets so no holes need to be made.
Lots of showers have happened in here since the room was completed and even though the liner was cut in half- it still works great at keeping water out. I think figuring out the spacing on the drapery panel and making the button holes is the trickiest part.
