G J Bathroom 2010 January 6, 2012Bathrooms2010, alcove tub, Bathrooms, curved rod, vessel sinkalex Another example of an ever more popular vessel sink, and a wall mounted fixture. Note how the accent tile compliments the shower surround. Curved shower rods are becoming more popular, particularly where the space inside the tub area is limited. These types of rods are not spring loaded like the common straight bars. They are secured on the wall with screws through the tile. This photo speaks for itself. This is what a fancy toilet seat controller can do.
