Building 101: Choosing the Right Textiles for Your Home (Part 3)

Dress up your bathroom with the right set of fabrics

Shares

Getting the right fabrics for your bathroom can be tricky because some have to be highly absorbent, while others have to be water-repellent. Ripstop nylon is a popular material for shower curtains, but if this is not available, you may opt for any kind of fabric lined with a clear plastic curtain underneath.

If you're looking for an absorbent type of bath towel fabric, the Terry cloth is a good choice, but sometimes guest towels can be made out of linen or fine cheesecloth.
