You can either go shopping personally for the curtain rods or order them online after doing a thorough research of the designs and patterns available. You should use rustic curtain rods when the décor in your home has a typical countryside flavor. The curtains with wildlife prints and patterns will go perfectly with the rustic curtain rods. These rods are sometimes available in various shapes of animals maple leaf tiebacks and scroll and ivy leaf. The rustic iron curtain rods are great works of art and craftsmanship. All of these rustic curtain rods are available hammered on an anvil and brushed to increase the natural polish of the rustic rods.
Read the product description carefully and check for the price and shipping costs. Once you have chosen the curtain rod that you like click the "buy" button or add it to your cart if you are planning to buy multiple items in one website. Another place where you can buy curtain rods is at home improvement shops. These shops sell furniture and other home furnishings and fixtures. Ask if they are selling rods for curtains and draperies. You will be led to a section where curtains and other window treatments are located. Inspect the curtain rod carefully and make sure that it meets your standards and the measurements that you have obtained. This is one good thing about buying something personally. You can touch and see the actual object which you cannot do if you are buying online. There are also curtain rods in big discount centers or bargain warehouses that sell almost all kinds of cheap products. This is the perfect place for you especially if you do not have much money. However you should manage your expectations. Curtain rods sold at discount shops are not in as good quality as those that are sold at home improvement stores.
Installation curtain rods First and foremost decide whether you want to mount the curtain rod on the window frame or the wall. On consideration here is that often frames are made from oak or other high-quality woods and you may not want to drill into them. Plaster or sheetrock walls are very easy to patch if you change decor later. To determine the proper positioning hold up the rod to the wall using a long carpenters level over the rod to make sure you have the rod level. (Very much a two-person task!) Also mark the placement of the brackets on the wall or frame with a pencil. When doing this you may want to have the curtains mounted on the rod if there is any question about how they will look or their hanging length.
Based on your installation requirements you will get accessories like brackets and hinges from the market. With the help of appropriate accessories you will be able to swing the rods up to 180 degrees to the right or the left without trouble. Moreover with the swing arm drapery rod secured on one side only removing and curtains is very easy. This is definitely a unique advantage that is not there with standard rods. Since this type of rod is secured only on one side hanging heavy curtains might seem to pose some problem. However there are provisions for attaching extra supporting brackets which can help overcome this drawback.
