You’ve got cute towels, a comfy bath mat, and a coordinated soap dish and toothbrush holder. Why stop there? Upgrading our shower curtain rings to a style with a fancier finish or extra baubles will have a bigger impact than you think. Even better: This design element packs a big punch with minimal spend.
Always cross-reference the number and size of hook holes in your curtain with the rings you’re eying. You don’t want to come up short when you go to hang your pretty new things.
Picking a rust-resistant shower-curtain hook is crucial. The bathroom is a hub of humidity, which loves to eat away at metal. Pick a naturally corrosion-resistant metal—like stainless steel, aluminum metal, copper, bronze, brass or galvanized steel—or something that’s been specially treated or plated to resist oxidation.
If your shower curtain is still not gliding as seamlessly as you’d like, you can spray the top of the rod with a silicone spray, or just rub on some soap, wax or petroleum jelly.
