Need help re: height to hang shower curtain rod
I need help!
I'm finally hanging a "real" curtain rod above the tub/shower combo in the main bathroom. It's a curved two-bar rod to hold a vinyl liner on the inside of the tub and a decorative curtain on the outside of the tub.
Most shower curtains are 72" long. I need to know how high above the floor to hang the rod.
Also, being a curved rod...
...Do I hang the rod ends flush with the inside of the tub?
...Or should the rod ends be more to the center of the outside of the tub?
...Or flush with the outside edge of the tub, knowing the inner rod sits in 3-4 inches more to the inside?
The center of the outer side/wall of the tub is about 3 3/4 inches wide. The ends of the outer side of the tub are about 6" wide.
How high from the floor is your curtain rod hung? Is it centered on the center of the outer side of the tub?
Also, how far above the floor does the outer curtain hang?
I have to drill through porcelain tiles to hang this rod. I hope to get it right the first time. If I don't I'll be living with it "wrong" for a long, long time! LOL
My rod is similar to this one, but mine is in a brushed stainless finish.
