As creatures of habit people will seldom look for something different if they find that what they have been using for years is still good enough. The shower curtains can be a great example of this. Extra long shower curtains are slightly more unique than your typical size curtains. The extra long shower curtains has its advantages. Besides looking elegant in your bathroom, it will keep the shower area drier than the standard curtain. Keeping the shower area dry is a matter of functionality, however; if you have children or an elderly person using the shower, the drier shower area will keep them from slipping and falling. In addition, water that accumulates on your bathroom floor can cause a lot of damage to that floor, and keeping it dry with a long curtain will save you replacing the floor at a later date
Another advantage of the extra long shower curtains concerns those people that are tall. Sometimes a tall person has to turn the shower head to an upward position which can cause a lot of splashing and thereby, water on the floor. With the extra long shower curtain, the shower head can be turned which ever way you want as long as the curtain is at least ten to twelve inches higher than the shower head, or higher than the tallest person in the house.
