What we like: Streamlined design
What we don’t like: Minimal space between rod and curtain
Not so great for: If you prefer something glam
Perfect for: A simple yet sturdy shower rod
Designed using non-corrosion technology, this curtain rod is guaranteed not to rust in any environment. The stainless steel design is sturdy, durable, and can hold a maximum load of 25lbs. Unlike other curtain rods, this one can be applied on both rough and smooth surfaces, from wood to wallpaper. The rubber plate will prevent scratching or damage.
Easy to install - expand or contract the rod to the desired width without drilling. You can pick from three different sizes and five finish options, including black and gleaming gold.

Fixed Shower Curtain Rod
What we like: Traditional design
What we don’t like: Arrives in two pieces
Not so great for: Heavier objects or shower extras
Perfect for: A traditional bathroom
This shower curtain rod is understated and chic. Made from metal, it is available in oil-rubbed bronze, polished chrome, or satin nickel. It comes with a mounting bracket and everything you need for a quick and easy installation. It’s also adjustable, but only if you cut it down to size with a pipe cutter.
The straight shape makes it an ideal choice for a regular bath or shower line. We love the three lines at each end, which give this rod a traditional yet timeless look. Because of this, we recommend this rod for a bathroom with more old-style features.
60” Curved Fixed Shower Curtain Rod
What we like: Affordably priced
What we don’t like: Will rust over time
Not so great for: A narrow tub
Perfect for: A contemporary bathroom
Choose from brushed nickel, chrome, or old world bronze with this curtain rod. It would be a great addition to any contemporary bathroom. Ensure that the polished surface stays gleaming over time by keeping up with the proper maintenance.
The curve extends just under six inches away from the tub, and the minimum opening is fifty-nine inches. This could be an issue if you don’t like too much space between your shower curtain and rod. As it is crafted from stainless steel, this rod will hold up well over time. Although it is not rust or corrosion-resistant, the affordable price it offers is well-matched with its features.
Bronze Adjustable Curved Fixed Shower Curtain Rod
What we like: Decorative cover conceals mounting hardware
What we don’t like: More on the expensive side
Not so great for: If you don’t want to drill into tiling
Perfect for: If you want more space in your bathtub
Corrosion-resistant, this curtain rod features a curved shape and oversized square ends. Decorative covers help to provide a stylish element while concealing mounting hardware and other issues. Available in four finishes, including silver and bronze, you can opt for the one that best suits your bathroom.
Plus, the pivoting flanges will not only make installation easier but more secure if you have an uneven wall or surface. Moreover, if you like separating your shower rod from the curtain, the gap here allows you to do so. It’s an excellent option if you want a curtain rod that looks and feels more expensive.
72” Adjustable Curved Tension Shower Curtain Rod
What we like: No drilling or tools required for assembly
What we don’t like: Requires two to install
Not so great for: If you live by yourself
Perfect for: A drill-free solution
Guaranteed for life against rust, this curtain rod’s curved shape provides up to six and a half inches of extra elbow room. Because of this, we recommend it if you always feel as though you’re squeezing into the shower. Or, if you have a smaller space, this rod will give the illusion of more.
One of the best features of this rod is that it requires no drilling or tools, meaning if you’re not a DIY fan you won’t have to even break a sweat. The color-coordinated end caps not only create a cohesive look but add a chic finish to the rail. Two finishes are available.
