Audra Odom. Curtain. November 30th , 2017.
Today you have the option of buying a pre-packaged curtain rod set with all the parts and pieces you need. That can save you time and energy, and easily meet your window covering needs.
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!
Do you want your curtain rod exposed or hidden by the curtains? If it's exposed it should match the room's style and d'(c)cor, so look around the room to figure that out. (A lot of you don't have to do that; you just know your style. But there are others....)
Transparency Matters - Always consider the amount of light that a particular set of draperies will let in – and how various combinations of draperies might work well together. Sheer Curtains, for instance, can be very effective at letting in light. They can also be modulated by adding a set of Signature Blackout Velvet Curtains. Mixing and matching various drapery openings can often give you just the right quality of light for every occasion.
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.
