Double curtain rods come in a variety of styles and designs. Double rods add a layered look to any window. Curtains of different materials can be hung together giving a richer fuller look to the window area. Many are designed so that the window can be decorated using a standard curtain and valance adding style and flare to any room. Rods are available in the conventional double rod style or in the scroll double rod style. Panels can be layered for a custom look. Double rods may also be used to hang a sheer panel behind drapes. Ranging in designs from very decorative and elegant to simple and basic it is easy to find a set to match any decor. Metal rods are available in many colors finishes and styles. Most sets include hardware and instructions for easy installation.
SO move away from those long ugly white metal rods and give your room some splash. Now to choose which rods you need its best to start with the type of drapes you are using some use invisible while others use traverse rods. Of course pleated curtains are fasted together with small hooks which are pulled across using a cord which hangs to one side so theres really only one choice there you have to use the traverse curtain rod. For other types of drapes I recommend you try to use a decorative rod which gives you the chance to emphasize some of your style and creative flair. There are many choices of material such as natural wood colors to match your furniture of floorboards or gold and brass polished rods to give your room a warm feeling. Perhaps you are decorating a childrens room or are a little bit eccentric and would like some funky colored metal rods. With this simple guide about choosing your curtain rods hopefully the next time you have guests over you can show that that it doesnt take a professional to be a great decorator.
If they will not be going all the way to the floor then they should hit about six inches below the window for full coverage of the window. Measure where the wrought iron curtain rods should be mounted based on the measurements of your curtains. Using a power drill mount the brackets directly into the wood stud within that four inch area on either side of the window. This will be the most difficult part of the process. Once the brackets are installed it is just a matter of putting the rod where it fits into the brackets and installing the finials if any to the ends of the rods.
Mark this spot on each side of the window and make sure its level even straight - whatever you call it its important! Now just follow the instructions that came with your curtain rod for hanging that particular type of hardware. For exposed curtain rods like todays popular decorative rods youll want to determine where to hang the brackets. Follow the above directions for a hidden rod except youll be marking the spot the bracket hangs - which may a different distance from the window. Heres some really helpful information: find out where the "cripple studs" are located. Theyre wood studs right around your window.
