Brass shower curtain rod with decorative brackets

We like to feature our best-selling brass hardware pieces on our home page - just scroll down a bit and you'll see them under the headline What's Popular Right Now.

This spring, we've noticed two of our best sellers are practical purchases, like shower curtain rods and retractable pullout garment/valet rods. And since they're from Allied Brass, you can count on them being high-quality, durable, and attractive.

Are Bathtubs Back? Our Shower Curtain Rod Sales Indicate They Are.

We've seen plenty of ads to transform a sad old bathtub into a beautiful new walk-in shower.

Obviously, we support updating bathrooms! Not only does this effort update and fix outdated plumbing and electricity, it adds real beauty and comfort to your lifestyle. It will also help your home retain or even increase its value.

We do think people should keep at least one bathtub in their home and have blogged about dressing up bathtubs

It seems that people are taking this advice and updating without getting rid of the tub if our shower curtain rod sales mean anything.

Brass shower curtain rod

The rod above features brackets from our Dottingham collection and is shown here in a brushed bronze finish.

All our shower curtain rods and brackets are made from sturdy brass and are available in 17 standard finishes. The rods come in to sizes that extend to 60" and 72". Like all Allied Brass products, they are powder-finished in coats that are warrantied against peeling, rusting, or fading under normal use.

Decorative Brackets Complete the Rod

Don't settle for the standard brackets - get a pair that will complement your bathroom decor and last for years.

Take a look at these lovely brackets:

 Monte Carlo collection. Finish: Matte White.


 Que New collection. Finish: Satin Brass.

Garment Rods Raise the Standard for a Closet or Laundry Room

Just as decorative brackets complete a shower curtain rod, garment rods make a closet or laundry room better.

Carolina Crystal collection. Finish: Polished Chrome

Once you've used a garment rod, you'll understand that adding one or two to a laundry room or closet (or anywhere else you can use one) creates a new standard.

Our brass and wood garment rods (also called valet rods) add another benefit: they extend out just under 10" from the wall.
