There are no one-size-fits-all rules when it comes to hanging cafe Curtain hook in your home. Each room has different needs and therefore different checklists of things to consider.
The bathroom is a prime location for a cafe curtain setup since windows are generally smaller in bathrooms. It’s the perfect place to hang bright, flowy linens that invite sunlight in the mornings or help you wind down at night. If you need more privacy, choose a darker color or thicker fabric.
You may also want to select a heavy-duty or waterproof material such as vinyl, depending on where you hang your curtains.
