And heres something really cool: you can actually add a motor to these rods to open and close them at the touch of a button! Pressure rods - can you handle another bowl of Grape Nuts? The "pressure" is usually some kind of spring... you guessed it: pressure! Not sure what this is? Its just like some shower curtain rods the kind you put in place and then twist till theyre tight against the walls. One reason for picking a pressure rod is because you cant actually permanently attach it to the window or wall. Another reason is you want the window treatment to hang inside the frame and this is the easiest option for that. Decorative rods will remind you of Kashi granola cereal: theyre great to look at and do a terrific job! Theyre also pretty popular and sometimes called cafe rods.
Basic White Metal Rod - This is the Corn Flakes. Theyre sometimes called valance and come in flat and round styles. Most of these are somewhat lightweight and made for lighter weight window coverings. Today you can get them as single double and even triple. The double and triple rods are used for a layered look like a semi-sheer curtain behind a room darkening drape. With this you can add a valance to your layered coverings. Traverse rods - the corded variation of the white metal something like Life cereal: still a basic cereal but pretty tasty. These are usually a little heavier construction and come in sizes that can handle some pretty heavy window coverings. These also come in the single double and triple variations.
Its also handy to know about the windows header. Its a solid chunk of wood right above the window that spans the length of the window. It usually doesnt extend much past the window so you wont be screwing into it for most rods but you never know when this kind of info comes in handy!) Whatever you do dont waste your time by using screws too short to do the job. Youve got to get that screw through the drywall and into the wood so it doesnt loosen later and fall out! If youre hanging a rod inside the window trim you dont have to find any studs - youll be screwing right into solid wood. Youll also be using special hardware called inside mounting brackets.
These differences are minor for the most part in terms of functionality; however in the design aspect and the incorporation of these accessories into pre-existing themes these differences can make or break a deal. The first major difference between curtain rod rings opposed to drapery rings is the fact that these accessories are rarely ever manufactured in wood. Wooden rings tend to be aimed more so towards specific elements in rustic and country themes in rooms that exhibit drapery. Aside from that comes the fact that most wood rings are simply not functional in the bathroom setting for a long period of time.
