They are effective efficient and inexpensive rods that easily increase the shower space and provide a completely different look to the entire bathroom. The shower curtains have 3" curve-in at the corners which prevents water leakage and allows the curtains to remain inside the bathtubs and does not allow it to blow over you. It is because of the curved shower rods that you can easily get extra elbowroom without renovating the bathroom in a new way. With the help of this rod you can get some additional space for soaping scrubbing and bathing in the bathrooms. Other specialties of curved shower curtain rods The curved shower curtain rods are suitable for both rectangular and oval shaped tubs.
You can buy various ornaments and decorative knobs to put at the ends of the rod. You can get these at local hardware stores or the big box stores like Home Depot and Lowes. Another creative and crafty idea is to use kitchen hooks as curtain rod holders. These can be added by screwing them in above or to the side of the windows remembering to thread the curtain rings (if needed) before screwing the knobs at each end. Types of curtain rods Whether you are deciding to make your new curtain rods as a do-it-yourself project or select from the various styles available on the market it is important to know which type of curtain rod you will need to fit your decor.
Installation curtain rods First and foremost decide whether you want to mount the curtain rod on the window frame or the wall. On consideration here is that often frames are made from oak or other high-quality woods and you may not want to drill into them. Plaster or sheetrock walls are very easy to patch if you change decor later. To determine the proper positioning hold up the rod to the wall using a long carpenters level over the rod to make sure you have the rod level. (Very much a two-person task!) Also mark the placement of the brackets on the wall or frame with a pencil. When doing this you may want to have the curtains mounted on the rod if there is any question about how they will look or their hanging length.
The wood rods are available as either smooth rods or as fluted rods. While the smooth rods are usually of 1-3/8" diameters the fluted rods are of 2" diameter. The rods in general are available in three different lengths of 4" 6" and 8". These are the curtain rods for normal sizes but if it is a non-standard window frame then you cut down the rods to specific sizes and then use them accordingly. However if you need longer than the normal length rods then use pole connector screws to get the necessary length. Different types of wood curtain rods The wood curtain rods are available in different finishes like historic white burnished gold natural white weathered white honey maple matte black gold warm oak gold leaf lacquered natural pewter cherry and piano white.
