I have one in a bathroom, where it has been up for the majority of five years plus. The trick is getting the twist fitting adjustment right and this can take time. Also make sure your walls are dry and free from dust etc when first installing. Finally these are not designed to take a heavyweight shower curtain, if that is what you want to use then buy a wall fixed rail instead.
Ordered the traditional, then found it wouldn't fit the joists on a slope,travelled cross country, after ordering a smaller version, returned the original, the staff were brilliant, both at Formby and Skelmasdale, and now it looks brill.
All good thanks! Expensive but they all are!
I bought this round shower rail for our en suite bathroom which only has a bath with a shower mixer tap. We didn't want the expense of re-tiling so this seemed like an easy option. Overall I'm pleased with the look and quality of the rail - it does require an extra wide shower curtain though. Victorian Plumbing have a few extra wide curtains to choose from. This rail is a sturdy, well made product - it's worth paying a bit extra rather than opting for a cheaper design.
If you're looking for an ideal finishing touch for your bathroom; one that's both stylish and practical, then a shower curtain rail is exactly what you need. These items come in various shapes and sizes and will suit pretty much any style of room so you don't have to worry about your selection looking a little out of place. In this guide we'll outline what your options are and the specific benefits that each one has.
There are many different shower curtain rails available, including wall and ceiling mounted versions. Our curtain rails are split into the following categories:
Shaped rails: These shower curtain rails come in various shapes such as oval, circular and u-shaped. These options are perfect accompaniments to freestanding baths, and happen to look particularly good in traditional settings. While most are available in chrome, there are gold plated versions too which will further add to the period feel. They are usually either wall or ceiling mounted to accommodate for the placement of your bath (though some rails actually feature wall and ceiling mounting points).
Straight rails: These rails simply run across the opening of the bath and are a fantastic alternative to bath screens. If you want a stylish yet affordable upgrade then a straight shower curtain rail is a great solution.
Curtain rings: With a curtain rail fitted, you'll need some rings in order to attach the shower curtain you've chosen. Curtain rings might not sound too exciting but they don't have to be boring at all; in fact they come in lots of funky designs which will add an extra touch of personalisation to your bathroom. Options available include colourful hooks, sleek chrome hooks, and also quirky designs such as the chrome ball curtain rings.
We strongly recommend that you take some accurate measurements of the room before buying a shower curtain rail. You need to measure the amount of clearance you have from the ceiling and also the projection from the wall.
