Stylish with a Nice Decorative Touch,
This review is from: Moen CSR2160OWB CSI Curved Shower Rod, Old World Bronze (Tools & Home Improvement)
My wife and I are finishing a complete bathroom remodel and in the final stages of selecting the shower rod, towel holder, and toilet paper holder. We looked at a number of shower rods and selected the brushed-nickel version of this Moen rod due to its curved style. It was a nice change from the standard straight shower rods you see everywhere else.
Moen does a nice job to help make installation as easy as possible. The instructions contain a mounting template for each end of the shower rod. If the wall has studs, on the template they show you where to drive your wood screws. If you're mounting to drywall with no stud underneath, they show you where to drill the hole for the wall anchors. They provide six wall anchors (three per side), but, strangely, they don't provide the wood screws. This confused me, but it wasn't a show stopper. Just be aware that, if you will be installing this into studs, you'll have to supply your own screws.
Installation was fairly simple and is best done by two people--one to do the drilling/screwing and the other to hold the rod. The rod swings widely on its plastic mounts, so you can separate both ends and piece them together, if you decide to separate them and mount one side first, then the other. This allows for an easier install rather than someone holding the entire rod while the first side is being mounted. When mounting is complete, the end caps snap over the mounting plate to provide a clean and very professional finish.
Overall we're very pleased with this product. Moen has a reputation for making quality products and this shower rod is no exception. Our bathroom remodel found us selecting Moen products for the shower, sink, and shower rod, and we couldn't be happier with how this rod perfectly matches up with all the other Moen fixtures in our bathroom.
