Which solution as a custom shower curtain/glass?

Hi guys,

We just moved in an apartment with my girlfriend and we'd like to have a curtain or glass for the shower, but the walls around the shower do not allow for conventional shower curtain or glass to be attached easily, as the wall is too short (does not go until the end of the bath tube) to attach a conventional L hanger (see pictures).

As I am not an expert in DIY work, I'd be happy to hear your suggestions.

Thank you very much.

I don't think heavy glass is a good option. The usual half enclosure won't work with the shower in the middle and I don't think it will work well with a full enclosure and the shower spraying on the door. It would have a good chance of leaking. I think a curtain is your best option. You will likely have to have everything custom made. Custom rod at the top to mate up to your walls and a custom length shower curtain. One good thing is you could have the shower rod several inches beyond the tub to give you more elbow room when showering.

Google "ceiling mounted shower curtain rod". Same kind of setup that a freestanding tub might have. If you want opinions on glass, your best bet would be to go to a commercial glass shop and ask what they think. Show them your pics.

Look into a curved shower curtain rod, they provide more room, and are arched so that you can conform it to the build of your tub. Easy installation and use a conventional curtain liner.
