Add a Curved Shower Rod

Does your bathtub seem to get smaller and you and the kids get larger? Enlarge the space by replacing a straight shower rod with a new curved shower rod. The rod, which runs around $40, curves out into the room creating a surprising amount of space within the tub surround. The curtain is long enough to keep the shower contained inside the tub, but it expands out into the room opening up the tub space.
