I have a bathroom in my house. The bathtub is the normal 60", but behind it is a small sitting area/ledge (17"). So that makes the entire opening 77" wide! To make the problem worse is the wall next to the bathtub has beautiful tiles laid into a really nice design. So I don't want to get one that turn 90 degrees (because I'd have to drill into the nice tiles).

I can see if I can find a shower curtain rod that can accommodate such a large opening (77") but even if I did, I can find a curtain that can keep the water from escaping/splashing from the tub area but not from the ledge. I won't be able to keep the water from escaping from the ledge.

Anyone have any ideas how I can keep water from escaping from the tub and ledge area?

See attached for picture of the layout.

Use two shower curtains? Maybe open them from the center like a theater curtain?

I kind of like that. So the one over the ledge (it's about 4-6" taller than the bathtub) will be 1 curtain, and the tub will be another? But then everytime we replace that one curtain (the one over the ledge), we'd have to cut it a bit?

How often do you replace curtains? Get two you like and look good cut it. Then get a pair of cheap washable liners, cut them to fit and wash them as needed.

I've had the same shower curtains for 5 years. Don't anticipate having to change it any time soon.

Make your own curtain rod from closet rods or something similiar and mount it to the ceiling.
