Finding a good shower curtain is hard. Once, because I couldn’t make a decision on which one I wanted, I spent a full week without one. It was a disaster. Beyond having to angle my body so that water would splash into the wall instead of out onto the floor, it gave me no privacy. This was also the same week my roommate decided to just walk into the bathroom, no knock, mid-shower. Jarring, right?

Well, since that fateful week when water flooded my bathroom, I’ve gone through plenty of shower curtains. From cheap ones I’ve picked up at the drugstore to fancy ones I ordered online, I’ve run the gamut of shower curtains. They all have some problems: They feel weird, they are somehow see-through, or they don’t dry quickly, to name just a few. Thankfully, after years of searching for the perfect one, I’m glad to announce I finally found it.

With shower curtains, simplicity is key, and that’s something you can expect from this Gingham Shower Curtain from Schoolhouse. It’s made from 100 percent cotton percale, which, thanks to its tighter weave, makes the shower curtain dry quicker than normal cotton would. It is soft to the touch, so much so that every time I enter the shower I almost forget I’m in an apartment bathroom and think I’m in a spa.

The material itself is nice, but not too nice. I’ve had some shower curtains in the past that almost made me afraid to use them. This is an everyday shower curtain, though, and one of the main reasons is that it is machine washable. And yes, if you didn’t know, you should absolutely be washing your shower curtain, you sicko.

Then there’s the design itself. You can grab this Schoolhouse option in a russet or a juniper depending on the style of your bathroom. Either way, it has a gingham print that makes it look like an old-timey bed sheet, hanging on a string out on a windy southern lawn to dry (but remember! This one dries quickly). It also won’t overpower anything else you have in your bathroom—the design is eye-catching enough to distract from small stains but subtle enough to not take away from other patterns in the space.

While you do need a little plastic liner, that’s okay in my book. You’ll want to preserve this shower curtain for a while. After all, it almost looks like a picnic tablecloth elegantly flowing from the rod above my shower.

If you need a shower curtain, I couldn’t recommend this one from Schoolhouse enough. It might just become your new favorite home item. It’s mine, and I can safely say I’ve never felt this way about a shower curtain before.
