My hall bath has a partially enclosed tub. I have researched an L-shaped shower curtain rod and know that they exist, however, I would like the longer part of the "L" to be curved to allow for more room in the tub when taking a shower. Can I curve the longer portion myself successfully and easily without harming the curtain rod?

Welcome to DIY.StackExchange! "Shop for me" type questions are off topic here, I've removed that portion of the question for you. –  Tester101 Jun 7 '13 at 12:48

It depends on how brittle/ductile the rod is. Its likely steel, which has a wide range of properties. There may be finish cracking issues. The wider the radius, the more likely the success.

I would experiment on a similar but simpler rod. The methods I suggested here would be the least expensive tooling.

Any reason for the downvote? –  HerrBag Jun 17 '13 at 21:32
