I purchased the 18", almost didnt because other web sites had experts saying it could not be cut without leaving an open end. Not True. It only looks like bar is going through ends, it really is a cap. So I was able to cut the bar down to 9" to hold boxed paper hand towels in the powder room and it looks great!.
There were not cut ends to show. Very nice line, purchased the brushed nickel which is a little darker than the normal brushed nickel but it looks great. Paired it with Progressive brushed nickel light fixtures. Really looks great. Quality is good
