    Default Commercial shower rod?

    I'm just finishing my bathroom project and I dont want to drill holes in my porcelain only to put a crappy shower rod that will corrode in a few months. Any clues as to where I can purchase a real quality shower rod like the ones in hotels? Or at least one that doesn't discolor. A double rod would be great. Chrome.

    Thanks...Nick

    Thanks, but this is the crap I want to avoid. I spent the better part of yesterday Googling without luck. I want someone who's had experience installing a quality shower bar to reply.

    I've had good luck with stuff made by Ginger. Not specifically shower rods, but I've got some lamps, vanity accessories, and safety bars from them. All are quite heavy duty with high quality plating. For example, the brass trim then plated with an anti-corrosion coating on the lights are made from real brass and probably weigh over a pound for the trim ring. At discount, a shower rod from them costs in the $50-200 range, depending on finish and decoration, and length. They make a nice curved one that I've seen in hotels.
