So after reading the reviews on this thing I expected it to be easy and effective. Let me tell you that I was not disappointed. It is perfect for what I needed, it was easy to install, and all at a great price. I had some help to initially put it up, but I needed to adjust it and flip the rod around. I was able to adjust and re-position it all by myself. FYI...you may want to put the "adjusting" end opposite of the side of the shower/tub you enter and exit from. I found that my shower curtain hooks were getting caught on the adjusting bar, so I took it down and flipped it to the other side.
Very sturdy and well made. Only thing I was unaware of was toggle bolts, it requires more assembly that I thought (drilling or whatnot). My contractor put it in (I was scared of messing up my newly installed tile and drywall. It looks great though and was about half the price of others at retail stores.
I needed new shower rods for both bathrooms in oil rubbed bronze (had just remodeled and was replacing the brass). I was just looking for the rod so the matching hook set was a very pleasant addition to the rod at no additional cost; PLUS the rod had foam protectors on each end to prevent damage to my walls. Excellent price and quality and the rod/hook set gives a very "upscale" look to the bathrooms. Extremely pleased with the purchase; but, then again, I have yet to be disappointed with any of my purchases from Overstock!!
Installation was a little tricky by myself because I didn't realize that the bars can be un-attached from the wall plate until after I finished installation. But I am happy with the purchase. Looks great.
I removed the glass doors on my shower & left the head rail. The rod fits inside of it so it isn't seen & does one heck of a job holding up the curtain. Hasn't slipped or fallen out like a lot of them do. Even without being covered it's really well-made & has a nice finish.
Just received - looks to be excellent quality - I have not installed the rod at the time of this review - new house - doing some remodeling. Actually bought this because the photo showed it could be installed on the outside of the shower on the wall - I actually plan to use it as a regular curtain rod to give a more dramatic effect in the main room - if it works great and if it doesn't, well I needed a curved shower rod for MY shower anyway :) win win either way
This rod took 5 minutes to install. It is so attractive.It has a beautiful finish and it is so strong. I have 2 double curtains hung from it and it never budges out of place. I am a very satisfied customer !
This curtain rod was very good quality and was easy to install. The only thing that I don't like is that the rod expansion has a lip on it and it is hard to pull the shower curtain over it. Other than that, I have not seen one as nice anywhere else. Good value.
Very nice looking. I love the space that a curved rod provides, like adding another foot of elbow room to the shower, and the price was excellent. The caps that cover the screws tend to pop out on occasion, but other than that I have no complaints.
The rod is good. It serves the purpose for which it was intended. It will be used in the extra bathroom on a built-in tub for our shower while we are gutting our master bath. I only wish that I had purchased the riser as well, because I definitely need one now. The key to installation is TAPE. Tape each of the connection joints while the D rod is lying flat on the ground. This really made the rod manageable during installation. After installation, you can easily remove the tape. It is not a one-person job, still. I also like that this particular brand comes with a 5/8 inch ceiling support rod as opposed to the 1/4 inch support rod that comes with some other brands. The ceiling support rod definitely needs to be centered to keep the rod level. I found installation instructions on the brand name's website. The instructions that come with the rod are minimal. Overall, a good rod.
This was a great product for a difficult place to hang a shower rod. The installation was easy, however, you should know that unless you have a very high ceiling, you will need to cut the bar that connects to the ceiling mount. As long as you have a saw with a metal cutting blade, this takes less than 5 minutes. If you do not have a saw, you may be frustrated with getting the height of the shower curtain correct.
Most comparable products were far more expensive on other sites and I am very satisfied with this product. The rod is solid and durable as well as attractive in appearance. My only complaint is that this product should come in a wider range of dimensions. It would have fit our bathroom even better if it came in a size that was at least two inches wider. However, finding the right dimensions for our bathroom was a problem that we encountered wherever we looked. This was hands down the best option.
This was just what I had envisioned when ordering- it is adjustable, and functions very well for us! It added to our bathroom remodel. I really liked the double rod- one for the liner and one for the actual shower curtain. .
I was excited when the shower rods arrived. I immediately opened the box. We didn't install them until a week later. It was worth the wait. The overall quality, color and length is very good. Yes, the color does come off looking more like semi-dark chocolate instead of that oiled bronze tone that is stated on the website. But the color itself DOES help enhance the bathroom---it did for both of ours. The weight was surprisingly light. The first rod we installed looked a bit straight more than a curved look.
What helped create a more curved appearance was that we placed one end (the right side of the rod) a little inward from the wall---about a 2.5 inch difference from where the other end (left) was placed against the wall. '
The only trouble we had was the overall installation, but the rods are not to be blamed. We encountered a hard spot on our bathroom wall downstairs. We ended up using a shorter screw (ours, not the ones that came with the package). If this happens to you, you might want to use a powerdrill to help place and lock the screws faster and safer. I highly recommend that 2 people install the rods---this way, one can hold the rods in place, while the other also holds the other end and screws in the screws.
After days of looking in stores, and hours of searching online, I stumbled on Overstock.com.
I'm very satisfied with this purchase, cause not only did it fit the dimensions I was looking for (well was slightly longer, but I figured that you can always cut off a little), but also had the perfect finish, and all for the lowest price around (and it included the ceiling support in the price!). It was the best value for the $. My only worry was that my husband wouldn't be able to adjust (cut off a little) of the length...but turned out it was possible to do so from all 3 ends (ceiling and both walls). I'm glad I chose to go with a rod, since glass doors would've made my bathroom seem smaller.
Overstock has certainly gained a customer in me....cause here is the first place I search when I need something online for my home.
Product looks exactly the same as picture, if not better! So beautiful :) I have not put it up yet so I can't review the durability but it seems very good quality! Truly very stunning and well made. Product also shipped very quickly. Overall very happy with product.
Never thought I would be writing a review on a shower rod ---- but here I am, call it "inspired"..
In short this purchase surprised me. Was thinking I would be purchasing a temporary curved rod to 'try it out'.. Turns out this is a very good quality piece of hardware.
Installation is fairly easy - and the product is very stable and solid.
Time will tell if the finish will hold up, but at time of delivery the satin nickel is good looking.
And of course, makes a big difference for the amount of space inside the shower, much more roomy in there..
Haven't really priced out other similar curved shower hardware rods, but for this price and quality, probably can't beat it...
This went together easily, and it is secure against the wall above the tub. It really did add significant "elbow room" when using the shower in a small guest bathroom bathtub, which makes it much nicer to use. The finish is a perfect match to my brushed nickel finished plumbing fixtures, and the shower curtain slides easily.
This shower rod isn't super fancy but it looks nice if you want something with clean lines and not ornate. I ordered two of these and they look great in my ivory painted bathrooms. I paired them with plain white shower curtains and am happy with how everything turned out
This rod is a perfect fit for my extended length shower/tub space. It has heldnup wellnto use by a two-year old. I only wish it was a bit more tight on the tension to assure me it will hold up over time, but so far, so good!
i purchased this rod to replace an existing rod that was inferior and sub standard was so thin the rod bent from use just to keep curtain up but this rod is great...much much thicker material will never bend in middle like old rod did and the hooks was a big plus been using it for over a month and couldnt be happier about the rod verry strong and pretty and matching hooks is just a plus they glide smoothely over rod no hang ups i would buy this rod again if i ever need one but i think it will last a good long time
I have not mounted it yet, because I have this going in a bathroom with a sloping ceiling and I haven't had the time to cut and modify it to fit my space. It looks good. I have seen complaints on other similar products that say these can be flimsy. It looks like you would have to store the curtain evenly across the rod or it might lean unless you are using a heavy galvanized rod. This is brass plated in chrome though.
If you are looking for a shower rod that is both sturdy and stylish, you can find just what you need from this selection at Overstock. Some brands offer a rod and hook set so you can have a matching combination that enhances the look of your bathroom. The two common types of shower rods are the curved style and the standard straight tension rod, which requires you to twist it against the shower. While both are great options, one of the benefits of the curved style is the additional space it creates in the shower. An adjustable rod is another great choice if you need to move the rod or change the fit. Kingston Brass and ExCell Home Fashions are some of the most popular brands available and offer a variety of satin nickel and chrome styles.
