Curtain Rod Selection

 

 

When it comes to decorating the home, most people think of the most obvious; the style of the room, the paint, the furniture, window curtains etc. When it comes to curtain rods or Drapery poles, we sometimes overlook how important of a product they actually are. There are many varieties to choose from depending on the style of your room and the fabric of the curtains that is used. Whatever your personal taste might be, a curtain rod can be that special accessory which finishes off the look of the window. Using the right curtain rod can compliment your decor by adding that special touch to your window treatments.

Curtain rods are literally what hold the entire window treatment together. Our unique rods are available in a range of materials and styles including metal, wood and polymer. The right curtain rod will enable you to enhance your curtains if chosen correctly. Here are a few things to bear in mind when choosing your curtain rods.

First of all, you need to determine the place where you are supposed to mount the curtain rods. This in turn shall vary with the type of curtain you are employing. Few curtain types look good if hung above the window frame, whereas many are hung within the window frame.

Secondly, you need to decide upon the design and style of the curtain rod. As curtain rods are available in a large variety, you will have a lot of options to choose from. Choose a decorative rod if the rods are to be mounted above the window frame. Or select a traverse rod if you are hanging curtains which are closed with a chord. In addition, it is also recommended to evaluate the material of the rod. Ensure that the rod is made of a good quality material and suits the climate you live in. Whether you are aware of the fact or not; cold, heat, dust, and humidity are all known to affect curtain rods. In addition, also check that the curtain rods you select match well with the furnishings of the room.

Thirdly, you need to decide upon the size spacer you wish to employ. However, this typically depends on the type of curtains you are hanging. Rings and hooks are the two most common types of spacers employed.

Lastly, you need to select the finials for the curtain rods. Finials are nothing but decorative pieces which are attached to both the ends of the rod. You will be pleased to know that our rods come with finials included!
