I vote shower curtain.....fabric though. I've had those glass doors in other homes I'd lived in and couldn't stand them. A total pain in the rear to clean. Besides a shower curtain is just so simple to throw into the washer on gentle cycle and the same for the dryer. I replace my liner every couple of months.....their so cheap its worth....I never have a mildew problem. Besides I think the color of the shower curtain really brightens a bathroom. Its so easy to change the decor of a bathroom by getting a different shower curtain and a few accessories. For my last one I spent a lot of time finding one I absolutely fell in love with and finally found it at WalMart and paid $24.97....its absolutely gorgeous and I get tons of complements on it. Kick myself for not getting 2 as I plan on keeping this one as long as I can.

We had them in our hotel room in California, and I saw them in the shopping mag. on the flight back.
We bought two right away (then I took almost a year getting around to doing the bathrooms - you're so busy, when you are retired!)

I just checked google, and they are now all over the place. Just google "curved shower rod".
Here's one:

Be sure to get stainless steel.

Also, it takes two to install them.

They now make trackless doors that install on the wall. They look so much better and there is no track to clean or get dirty.

We just re-did one of our bathrooms, but only found out about the trackless doors after we were done. At some point we may put it in as they look so much better than the curtains.

The doors would have the track. It's a 3/16" seamless.

I've seen the curved shower rods at our area Linens 'n' Things and I think I may have seen them at Wal-Mart, too.

If they curve outward, doesn't more water get on the floor?

That's what we have GB.
They are very nice... not having those tracks to clean is wonderful.
We just have a shower though. Can you have them if the shower and tub are connected?

I prefer curtain mine has the suction cups on each end - no more body hugs!

Vegas Girl I have never had shower curtains in my bathrooms. I have clear glass in both bathrooms and I really like them.

When they were installed the man said to get a can of wax and put it on both sides of the shower doors and once you see the coating then wipe it off with a soft cloth. Now the water comes off so easy and cleaning them is a breeze.
