When choosing a suitable shower curtain rod there are several things to keep in mind. Ideally, it should have a finish that matches your faucets and bathroom hardware. The Zenna Home, the Kingston CC3130 Vintage, the Briofox Tension, and the iDesign Curved are available in several different tones including chrome, brushed nickel, and bronze, the latter having a contemporary matte black option too.
Most of the poles ranked here are adjustable via a spring-loaded tension mechanism, or can simply be cut to the desired length. if you have a non-standard sized bathtub then the Briofox Tension, the iDesign Curved, and the Tenovel curved have an extra-long adjustment of up to 73 inches.
Finally, the layout of your bathroom may exclude some designs due to mounting issues. If you are looking for a curtain rod that can function well with a free-standing or corner bath, then you may wish to consider the Kingston CC3130 Vintage, the Wayne Inc Arc Radius, or the Naiture Half-Oval. Alternatively, the Saim mount 3 is a versatile kit with different assembly configurations and mounting possibilities.
