I love curved shower rods. They really are the best thing since sliced bread - and are exactly as innovative. People used to buy bread by the unsliced loaf, until one moderately bright (and probably pretty lazy) guy said, "Instead of slicing it when I need it and dirtying approximately 8,000 of my own knives, can you just slice it all now, and let me take it home that way? Thanks." No one's looked back since.
As a species, it's saved us DOZENS of calories. Maybe. via wikipedia.com
Same deal with curved shower rods. Without having to remodel your whole bathroom, or even be handy with tools on any level, you can make your shower a roomier, more relaxing, more comfortable space.

Talented though I may be in the kitchen (so long as it isn't my mom's kitchen, apparently), I'm not at all house-handy, and even WE have a curved rod.
So imagine my delight when I noticed that the hotel we were staying in this week also had a curved rod. It was pretty delightful, let me assure you, until I noticed that they missed the whole point...
Yep, fully 1/4 of the tub was now useless to anyone trying to shower without being attacked by a cold, slimy, communal shower curtain. We tried explaining it to the hotel staff (multiple times), but they kept politely explaining that they had to place the rod there, otherwise the curve would exceed the width of the tub.

Shower curtains are flexible and keep the water contained in the tubs, just in case that isn't obvious to all my loyal readers. I tried to explain that, but once small words aided by pictures failed to get the point across, I gave up. So I spent the week washing a Buick in a Geo Metro sized space.

I decided to post about this when the totally different hotel we stayed in last night had done the exact same thing. There may be an instruction-booklet-illiteracy epidemic among us.
Maybe I shouldn't complain - I mean, it could have been worse, right?
Apparently so. via bookofjoe.com
