While there are always those intrepid souls who like the DYI trend of today and are determined to do everything themselves, the rest of the world's home owners would rather tackle something that isn't quite as complex for the most part. That is why there are professional curtain and blind fitters available to take on this task and make it look easy. With all the measuring and checking to make sure of width and length for blinds and curtains as well as checking for level to make sure everything is straight side-to-side, this job can get complex fast when there are lots of windows to deal with in the home.
Back to that question: how do you know whether to pick visible or invisible? Let's ask another question first: what kind of window coverings are you using? Like we said, some curtains require the invisible rod called a traverse rod. Pleated drapes are made to attach to hooks that hang from this curtain rod and open-and-close by pulling the cord hanging down one side. So if you've got pleated draperies you've already got your answer: use the traverse curtain rod.
Finally, you might have some plans for your home office too. What is the best way to impress your guests and visitors? Go and install a most sophisticated traverse curtain rod! You will be more than happy to show off how to open and close it by just pulling strings attached to it!
Before you read further, it is confession time. We're a little biased - but for good reason. You see, some draperies are made to hang from mostly invisible curtain rods but not to all. And this is where our bias comes in: the way we figure it, if you're going to see all or part of the curtain rod at one time or another, why not pick one you love looking at? Why should you ever have to stare at a long, white metal rod (read: not pretty)? Okay, now you know our little secret, so read on -
A little research in the internet proves worthy. You will be amazed at the designs, styles, and sizes of the curtains rods that are easily accessible in the market. There are drapery rods, traverse rods, decorative rods, cafe rods, canopy rods, valance rods (lock seam rods), spring tension rods or sash rods, swing arm rods, wide rods, traverse-and-valance rods, magnetic curtain rods, etc. Well, the list does not seem to end here, you might discover even more! The point is that you have a big chance to find out the right kind of curtain rod for your home.
