Hanging a shower curtain rod on tile

The biggest challenge to installing anything (shower door track, towel bar, or curtain rod) in a bathroom with ceramic tile is making a hole in the tile without cracking it. The job is easy, however, if you have a masonry bit and a roll of masking tape.

Place the bracket for whatever you're installing in position and mark its general area on the tile. Then place a couple of strips of masking tape over the area. Place the bracket in the exact position and mark the location of the mounting screws on the tape with a felt pen. Then drill through the tape. The masking tape will keep the drill from moving off the mark until the bit starts penetrating the tile.
