How will your rods be hung - inside or outside the window frame? For outside the frame - on the wall: the idea here is usually to cover the window completely. Measure 2-5\" out from each side of the window trim. The total curtain rod length should be about 12\" longer than your window width. And don't be fooled: measure each window in the room - they may look the same size, but they may not be!
If you're hanging a curtain rod inside the window frame (typically spring or magnetic rods) measure at the inside point of the window. Again, measure each and every window - you don't want any surprises later!
Proportion and Balance - Take into account issues such as size, shape and visual weight. A lightweight set of curtains in a dark color, for example, can appear to be very heavy. And beautifully pleated drapes can come off as “just not enough” if they fit too tightly to the windows. Seeing your room as blocks of color will help to provide balance and proportion.
What are your options? You can choose from standard rods, spring-loaded rods, traverse rods, decorative rods, adjustable rods, magnetic rods, double and triple rods . . . made from brass, chrome, ivory, graphite, mahogany, teak, and walnut, plastic, metal . . . . And we haven't even mentioned color or style yet!
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.
