In our blog, we've written a few posts about using curtain tracks for claw foot tubs. Claw foot tubs often need a curtain track to encircle the entire tub when they are placed away from the wall, allowing for privacy from all angles. In this blog post, we want to address using curtain tracks for a soaker tub/shower combo and how we recently helped a customer who had a triangular shaped soaker tub in the corner of the bathroom that doubles as a shower.
Enjoying a long, luxurious bath in a soaker tub sounds amazing but if that tub doubles as a shower, you need to think of a way to enclose the tub. Since our customer has a tub in the corner of the bathroom, she wanted to add a ceiling track that could accommodate the curved angle around the edge of the tub which would keep the water inside the tub when the shower is in use. We recommended our 6100 flexible curtain track. This track is simply the best. It can be bent to fit almost any angle (and certainly the curved angle of her tub) and you don't need tools as it can easily be bent by hand. Simply mount the track on the ceiling, add carriers, hooks and a shower curtain and your tub/shower combo is ready to go. If our customer wants to feature the tub, she can keep the shower curtain pulled back to one side or pull it closed to conceal the tub/shower.
A project like this is easy to complete and we are always happy to help solve a decorating/functionality dilemma. Interested in reading more about customer bathroom projects?
