    TIP:

    If you can’t find an extra wide shower curtain at 78”, purchasing one at 84” will be wider by 6 inches. This is not a huge problem because you can usually adjust the fullness between the hooks to make it fit, but more fully ( a more drape like effect)

    With an extra wide shower curtain, you may need extra shower curtain hooks. Due to the extra width, there may be more shower curtain holes.

    Remember our advise to always use a shower curtain liner even if they say that their fabric is waterproof…See our article Which Bathroom Shower Curtain is the Best?

    Extra Long Shower Curtain and Special Sizes

    Finding an extra long shower curtain or special sizes can be a daunting task, if you don’t know what to look for. Long shower curtains can come in a variety of styles and sizes which generally run from 72 inches up to 96 inches. If you need an extra long shower curtain, or shower curtain liner, that is longer than 96 inches, you may need to look into custom shower curtains.

    Shower Curtain Sizes

    The average shower curtain is usually 70 x 70 inches, although 72 inches x 72 inches is also quite common. Sadly, there is not a one-size-fits-all standard when it comes to shower curtains so you will need to do a little bit of work to find the right one for you. We make that easier.

    What Size of Shower Curtain Do You Need?

    In order to determine the correct size, you will need to take two measurements.

    • Take out your measuring tape and measure horizontally across the sides of the tub from wall to wall.
    • Next measure the distance from the top of your shower curtain rod to the length where you would like your shower curtain to hang.

    People can have varied preferences on the length of their shower curtains. Some people may want them from ceiling to floor, but some people want them going from the top of the shower curtain rod or rail to a few inches below the ledge of the bathtub.

    Generally, people want them going from shower curtain rods or shower rails to a few inches above the floor. In either case, make sure that your shower curtain is at least 2-3 inches below the ledge of the bathtub. If this is not possible with a standard 72 x72 inch shower curtain, then you will definitely need to purchase an extra long shower curtain.

    Most Bathtubs are 60″ wide but you need the extra 12″ (making it 72″) to give it some fullness and to help to keep the water from escaping through the sides. There are some people who sell 60 inch shower curtains, especially if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary, but keep in mind that they are no good for a regular bath because they are missing the extra on each side. These would be fine if you have a smaller shower area, but to make sure there are no problems, measure first.

    Shower Curtain Tips

    Keep in mind that your extra long shower curtain liner sizes should be determined in the same way as we suggested for your shower curtain. If you end up needing an extra long shower curtain then it stands to reason that you will also be needing an extra long shower curtain liner to go with it. Usually, you can find shower curtain liners sold in the same lengths as shower curtains.

    If you end up with measurements that are in between sizes, you might try using longer shower curtain hooks or rings to bring the height down a little or play with the placement of your shower curtain rod. They are especially easy to re-position if you are using tension shower curtain rods that we mentioned earlier in another post.

    These shower curtain hooks may allow the shower curtain to hang a little longer. You might want to give them a try.

    Shower Curtain Hooks to Lengthen Your Shower Curtain?

    Extra Wide Shower Curtain

    Perhaps you have noticed while taking your shower curtain measurements that the problem is not that you need a long shower curtain but rather an extra wide shower curtain.

    Extra wide shower curtains will definitely be necessary if you have a large area to cover such as a claw foot tub. In that case you will need to purchase a wide shower curtain that is 108 inches wide to properly fit as a club foot tub shower curtain.

    Oversized shower curtains are not as hard to find as you may think. Throughout our website you will see many links to help you buy an extra wide shower curtain or any other shower curtain size for your particular needs.

    TIP:

    Some people find that over sized shower curtains are too heavy and burdensome. What they opt to do is to buy two regular sized ones and overlap them by two to three eyelet holes and you may find that easier to deal with. You will have a seam showing if you use this method so decide what is best for your situation.

    Stall Shower Curtain

    For a stall shower curtain you will probably need something a little different. Although a long shower curtain may work, it may be too wide. Shower stall curtains usually come in narrower widths to make them fit better.

    This particular stall shower curtain above, with the hummingbird and flowers is your typical 36″ x 72″ stall shower curtain.

    A stall size shower curtain can be measured in almost the same way as measuring for an extra long shower curtain. You will need to measure from side wall to side wall but this time you will need to measure from the shower stall curtain rod to the bottom of the floor. If you shower stall curtain does not reach the floor, then you will have water getting through and causing a slippery mess. This is why the shower curtain length is so important.

    Stall Shower Curtain TIP:

    If you can only find stall size shower curtains that are too long there is still hope. Suppose you need a stall shower curtain 54″ x 72″, but you can’t find one. What if all you can find is a stall shower curtain that measures 54″ x 78″ such as the one below?

    The solution to this problem is to find a stall shower curtain that doesn’t have too much detail at the bottom.

    Then, you may be able to just cut off the 6″ that you don’t need from the bottom of the curtain and voila! You have just made yourself a custom stall shower curtain.

     

    TIP: Use scissors to cut off bottom of stall shower curtain if needed

     

     

     Small Shower Curtain

    If you are looking for a small shower curtain they can usually be found for RV’s and and other small spaces. A short shower curtain is usually sold at 64 inches long, and are generally what people want when looking for a small shower curtain, or a short shower curtain. If you do not find any small shower curtains that you like, then perhaps a short shower curtain liner can be a good substitute for you.

    To measure for an RV Shower Curtain, take the measurements from the top of the RV shower curtain rod to the floor.

    Tip:

    Some specialty shower curtains may be harder to find. In instances like this, you can always use a shower curtain liner instead. Shower curtains add a nice decorative flair to your bathroom decor, but it’s the shower curtain liner that is doing all the work for you.Without a proper shower curtain liner your bathroom will be a mess.

    Metric Sizing System Compared to the Imperial System:

    When shopping for shower curtains, you may find that sometimes, they are written in metric rather than imperial measurements. When changing from the Imperial system to the Metric system, you cannot get a perfect round number. Most manufacturers will round the metric number to make it easier for customers to figure out more approximately what the measurements are.

    Below is a handy size chart that will help you to figure out approximately which metric size you are getting if you purchase from someone in China, Canada, or other countries using the metric system.
