Extra Long Shower Curtain

There are many reasons you may want extra long shower curtains, but you are in enough of a minority that you'll have a hard time finding them. Extra long shower curtains may be part of a special bathroom decor, for an unusual shower design, or for a tall person. Find out where to buy them here.

The standard shower curtain is 72 inches long, and usually just as wide. This size is fine if you have a standard bathtub shower enclosure. The top of the shower curtain can be hung six-and-a-half to seven feet high, keeping spray in the tub. The bottom won't touch the floor but it will overlap the side of the bathtub by several inches, keeping water inside of the tub.

But what if you have a narrow shower stall with a low lip? Or what if you're extremely tall and water bounces off your head and over the top of the shower curtain? Then you need an extra long shower curtain, and perhaps one that's a bit narrower than standard. They can be hard to find.
