Clawfoot Tub Shower Curtain

 

 

Now there is an even better way to bring dramatic style your bathroom with the help of a genuine clawfoot tub shower rod. 

Not only will your clawfoot tub shower enclosure add a level of convenience to your clawfoot tub but also the elements of versatility and practicality. 

Because shower rods for clawfoot tubs come in several unique sizes and shapes, you will have to spend some time deciding what design works best for you.  


With that in mind, shopping for just the right clawfoot tub shower rod will go much easier if you carefully consider two basic factors before making your final decision.  This includes the actual shape of the rod and the mounting style that will be best suited for clawfoot tubs.

It is also important to remember that clawfoot bathtub shower rods are not as easily adaptable as traditional shower rods.  Needless to say you must do whatever it takes to get the right measurements because you only have a couple choices if you choose the wrong size:  cut it down to fit or return it and place another order.

Fortunately there are several different rod shapes and clawfoot tub shower curtains to pick from.  If your clawfoot tub is next to a wall, rectangular rods and D-shaped shower rods provide the perfect fit.  For a more spacious and roomy feel while in the tub, choose an oval shaped rod.  There is also the U-shaped shower rod that is very much like D style rods.  The difference is that the shorter side of the rod is attached to the wall as opposed to the long side.

Aside from different kinds of rods, you will also have to choose the type of mount best suited for the kind of clawfoot tub shower rod you have selected.  Ceiling mounts are typically attached to both the head and foot of the tub.  If necessary, there can be three mounting points to give an added measure of stability.  Wall mounts better benefit those clawfoot tubs that are positioned flush against the wall.  You could do something extraordinary and use a combination of both for the most versatility. 

To make the installation process easier you may want to invest in a clawfoot tub shower conversion kit.  A high quality kit will contain the curtain ring, the clawfoot tub faucet shower piece, riser pipe, clawfoot tub shower head, and mounting parts.  Finishes include antique brass, brushed nickel, chrome, oil rubbed bronze, polished brass, and polished nickel.  Select a finish that easily blends well with the decor of your bathroom.  For the maximum use of your entire tub, you also have the choice of an extra wide clawfoot tub shower rod.

From luxurious, high end, strong, shower rod kits for your tub to less expensive, more affordable models, you will be able to find exactly what you need no matter what your budget.  Installing a clawfoot tub shower rod is a great way to update your bathroom and add classic, elegant style to the space.  In truth you have an important decision to make and this is only just the beginning.
