Shower Curtain Rod

A shower curtain needs to run along a rod or rail. Your choice will depend upon the look you are trying to achieve and also the layout of the walls around your bath.

A shower curtain rod usually requires a wall at either end of the bath. The rod is then fixed into brackets on each wall or in some cases the rod is spring-loaded and relies on outward pressure to lock it in place.

Shower curtain rails are available in different shapes including L-shape which enables the curtain to run around 2 sides of the bath with a support at the corner. There are some shower curtain rods that can be fitted in an L-shape but they put a great deal of tension on the brackets as it is not possible to fit a support at the corner.

When siting the shower curtain rod make sure that there is enough drop on the shower curtain to reach well below the rim of the bath, otherwise the curtain can pull over the rim too easily and water can escape. Remember that shower curtains hang down from curtain rings so this can give you an extra inch or two (unless you are using a ringless shower curtain).
