Design Your Own Towels and Shower Curtains

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 30, 2017 4:47:19 PM / by Oliver Levin

What do you do when you need a new towel or shower curtain?  In the past, I've gone to the mall to purchase both.  And perhaps you feel the same way about the experience as I do: I CAN'T STAND IT.

In the stacks and stacks of towels, I never love any of the designs. Why? Because there are none! All the towels are single-colored, and like paint, have every shade imaginable.  It is simply too many choices for me. Similarly, when I purchase a shower curtain, I get the exact same thing every time. A single-toned bland piece of fabric that is ugly and boring!. Finally, when I get to the register, I am paying way too much for a shower curtain and towels. Yuck!

Now sure, some people love plain color themes and physical stores, but as a consumer in 2017, I want to customize my products on my couch without having to leave the house.

If you're like me, the in-store experience of purchasing lackluster items out of necessity is one of my least favorite errands of the year.  And if you share this feeling with me, it is likely some of your customers do too. With our home decor products, we are offering ecommerce stores the ability to create an optimal alternative to going to your local home decor store.

Towels and Shower Curtains are the most recent additions to our ever-expanding home decor product selection. These can be a great addition to your online store, as there are likely many folks out there like me that love online shopping, but simply don't know they can customize these products at such a competitive price.
