The type of curtain rods you buy may not seem important, but it can make the difference when it comes to what size curtains you will be hanging. Curtains that are lightweight can tolerate a lightweight rod, but not heavier curtains.
Heavy weight silk curtains need curtain rods that are durable and non flexible. The heavier the curtains are the more the rod tends to bend in the middle, and eventually breaks.
Besides weight, curtain rods can be purchased in many styles, from antique white, to modern iron. The right style of designer rods can make window or french door curtains look classy and elegant, or plain and appealing.
Many people have their curtains tailored made to compliment their rods. When decorating, windows style is everything. Style sets off a certain awe in a room, and it defines a little about the decorator. Everyone has certain styles or fabrics they like, as well as certain styles of patterns, but not everyone has an eye for the same style of decorating.
For instance, the Pine cone antique gold drapery rod is perfect for hanging up antique looking curtains, and a crystal clear rod is excellent for voile curtains. This is perfect for anyone wanting an old modern classic look, and feel. The Quadrant Rod Finial is elegant and casual, it provides a strong modern day look. With so many styles to choose from, finding the right style of curtain rods should be a breeze. Especially, if someone knows what they want.
Many of these rods are inexpensive, and can be purchased at any department store, for under $20. Ordering online provides cheaper pricing, and same day shipping, in most instances. Many stores have 50% off clearance sales, where prices are leashed enormously. That makes the already low prices any lower. It’s possible to decorate every room in the house without spending a lot of money.
