    "You can hang curtains in a bathroom but consider the following...

    Effective ventilation. Install an efficient extractor to make sure the humidity is low. This will help to keep them looking good for longer (as well as the rest of the room). You can buy models now with humidistats built in which turn on at a predetermined humidity level, I find them extremely good. Bathrooms also smell a lot better when don't get that musty smell.

    Consider washable materials and maybe man-made materials as these are less likely to be adversely affected by moisture.

    I have designed curtains into a room, upon request, a few times over the years without any problems.

    Hope that's helpful."

    "Yes, it's possible, because we can prevent it from making water in the whole bathroom"

    Right on!

    "Unfortunately not!
    Bathroom curtains are from anti mold fibres .
    Check your retailer for the type of material."

    "I personally would not advise this due to the part of the house being classed as a wet room area therefore condensation and dampness are prone in these room, especially around the window area"

    "Hi Caroline.

    It is possible but take care that the material doesn't get mouldy as it may well absorb the moisture! Regular washing would be required."
