Curtain Rods Selecting The Right Type For Your Window, Visible, Invisible... How Do I Choose: So let's take a look at one of the first decisions you'll make when picking out a new curtain rod: visible or invisible rods. And that requires a clarification: the invisible rods really aren't totally invisible. The mostly invisible rods are completely covered - invisible - only when the drapes or curtains are closed. When your curtains are open part of the rod is visible. In other words your curtain rod still needs to complement your decor whether it's mostly visible or mostly invisible.
The material you select for your window curtains will depend upon the upholstery of your furniture and the color of the walls. You also need to decide whether you want a thick material to block out sunlight or a lighter material that will let sunlight filter through. If you want to your curtain to be made of silk, make sure that you line it with cotton and interline it with flannel. If you don't do this, the sunlight will fade your silk and you will have to keep replacing your curtains often.
If you want to dress up your small windows like bathroom window and other narrow windows, the swing arm curtain rod is the best idea for you. The spring tension rods can also be useful in your bathroom windows if the wall is covered with ceramic. As these rods do not carry much weight, make it a point to use them for shower curtains.
Blinds are the real winner when it comes to functionality. There adjustable stance, rod manoeuvrability can help you control the exact amount of light that enters your room. Blinds can help you obscure the view, offering the perfect amount of natural light into your home. When it comes to functionality blinds are vastly superior compared to curtains, so again, it entirely falls down to preference, décor and style.
If you are dead against drilling your wall, go for a magnetic curtain rod which can be used in a metal window casing. The magnets will do the job for you. If your choice is lace or sheer panels then think about single curtain rods. It provides a layered look to your window treatment.
