I wanted to answer some questions about one of my favorite elements of this space, the shower curtain track. When trying to determine the perfect curtain rod, I knew I wanted something that would draw the eye up. I considered a custom full length shower curtain, but felt that with these clients I could try something a little unexpected.
After some research I came across Trax and knew that this would be the ideal solution. This product comes in a multitude of shapes and is also available in custom sizes. The slimline track simply screws into the ceiling (using the proper anchors) and comes with glides that allow for some customization.
After we received the track, I played around with the glides and learned that the components are easily separated allowing for new ball chain to be connected. You must use a #10 or 4.55mm ball chain.
If you are looking for their standard ball chain, you can order the glides with a custom length of silver ball chain directly from Trax. But I was looking for the perfect gold to go with our faucets and hardware. Fortunately, I stumbled upon this Antique Brown ball chain on Amazon ( I ordered two 10 foot lengths) and took the risk… hoping it would match. It was perfect!
Using wire cutters I cut 18″ length pieces and attached the existing hooks to the new gold chain using the metal couplers that came with the chain. After they were hung, a few needed trimming but it was a relatively quick and painless install. The entire project took about 30 minutes.
Now I am off to take some measurements of the living room for the ORC!!! I hope you all have a great weekend!!
