First, determine the shower curtain rod’s location by measuring from the back wall to the edge of the tub. Then transfer that measurement to the ceiling.

If you’re close to the walls, there should be framing above the ceiling to drive the screws into; if not, you may need to add blocking in the attic. This will allow provide a strong surface to hold the ceiling mount shower curtain rod.

Once you have secured the brackets, install the curtain rod, the curtain hooks and finally the curtain to complete the project.
