The essential element that holds together beautiful and sometimes heavy curtains is the curtain rod. Curtain rods are made of many different materials and come in many different styles. They can appear as an elegant feature to a stylish window dressing or they can look ornate and out-of-place if not chosen with care. There are three main parts to a curtain rod - pole finials and brackets. The pole holds fabric the finials cap off the ends of the pole and the brackets mount the unit to a wall around a window. Curtain rods can be adjusted if they come with two parts that slide into one another. The adjustable curtain rod is ideal for those who like to change their window dressings frequently or to alter the appearance of the size of a particular window. Finials can be very plain and simple or very ornate - it depends on your style and taste.
Brackets will be necessary to hang your drapery rods. Depending on how long your sections of rods are dictates how many brackets you will need. You usually will need at least one bracket per corner in addition to one bracket on each end of the rod. Along with finials rings are also available if your curtains require them for hanging. Other accessories to use with your corner rods are holdbacks to drape your curtains back and wands to help move the curtains along the curtain rod. Corner rods can be manufactured a few different ways. One of the most popular ways is to have a rod for each section and connect them using connectors welded at the correct angle. Corner rods can also be welded or attached together at the correct angle in one piece. This is only feasible for shorter rods since it is in one piece.
The kit carries self-adhesive strips so you can use the rod on any other smooth surface like aluminum wood or even fiberglass. Decorative magnetic curtain rods are the latest offering in curtain rods. The brackets and finials are trendy in design. These rods have been slam-tested to safeguard against slipping from their moorings. The magnets are designed so as not to scratch the surface and the diameter rod is stronger for its lock-seam construction. If up-to-date is what you want to be go for magnetic curtain rods. There is a wide range to choose from to suit any curtain rod needs.
Additionally youll need pincer clips to go on the rings to hold the art. Installing the rod depends on the type chosen. If you chose a curtain rod with brackets and finials simple attach the brackets to the wall and place the rod with finials on the brackets. If you chose end mount brackets or a cafe rod youll be attaching the rod directly to the wall. Either way place the rings on the rod before installing it. Place the pincer clips on the curtain rod rings and then place the rings on the rod. You can then hang the art by using the pincer clips to grab the art. The rings can be moved along the rod to be placed in the appropriate place depending on the size of the art. When you get tired of the art simply take it off the clips and replace it. Youll have a new look anytime you want.
