Are curved shower rods better?
A curved shower rod will allow you to enjoy up to 33% more room than using a straight rod. This is because of the outward bulging design that makes it curve in more space from the bathroom into the shower area. You can always enjoy free movements inside the shower without worrying about staining the linen with foam.
Do curved shower rods sag?
Whereas curved rods, even if they are the slightest bit mis-installed — which is often — will tend to “sag” and in so doing, will cause the curtain to bunch up toward the middle of the rod, creating a large gap between the curtain and wall: which can cause a big leaky mess.
Do curved shower rods work in shower stalls?
Curved rods are usually installed closer to the back wall of the shower than a straight rod. The rod must be back far enough so that the curtain is able to be tucked behind the lip of your shower stall.
Do you need a special shower curtain for curved rods?
