Round Shower Curtain Rods

Buying Guide

The size shower curtain needed for a curved rod will not differ from that needed for a regular straight rod. Standard shower curtains measure 70” x 70” and work for curved rods as well.

Round shower curtain rods create more space, up to 33% more, for you as you shower, keeping your skin from touching the curtain. While this makes it feel more spacious, it doesn’t require more curtain to adequately cover the shower area. No special type of curtain is required to pair with a curved rod.

However, if you prefer additional slack in your shower curtain, go for an extra wide version of a shower curtain.

To determine the basic size for your shower curtain, first measure shower rod height from the tub floor to the top of the rod. Next, measure the length of the tub and add 12” to get the standard curtain length. Add an additional 2” - 3” in width to create the extra slack if desired.

If you have a round shower curtain rod and a regular shower curtain, you should be aware that you can use them together; however, your regularly-sized shower curtain may not be long enough (as your round shower curtain rod will, very simply, be longer than a straight one for the same space would be). To get the best coverage, purchase a longer shower curtain made for a round rod. However, in a pinch, you can use a regular size.

A round shower curtain rod works well around a freestanding bathtub. These shower curtains protect the floor and walls of your bathroom on all sides, allowing you to enjoy a shower in your freestanding tub. If your tub is a soaker tub, primarily intended for bathing, you can still enjoy the privacy that a round shower curtain provides.  

To mount round rods, center the rod by positioning the arc in alignment with the tub’s edge. Mount the rod 2” above the height of the shower curtain. For example, install a rod 74” from the floor to fit a standard 72” shower curtain.
