Curtain poles need supporting regularly along their length when they are used in bay windows but clever design means the rings can move past the brackets with ease. Use the space As bay windows have openings on all sides they create pleasant nooks filled with light. They are great locations for activities which either need illumination or benefit from the ability to see out so theyre perfect for desks and dressing tables. Being able to look up from your computer screen is good for your eyes and applying make-up in natural light allows you to see the colours more clearly. With square bay windows you may find a piece of furniture that will fit but for semi-circular or angled designs you might need a custom piece created.
Theyre mostly visible and sometimes look like poles that stick out past the curtain. There are several ways to hang drapery from it. Sometimes theyre slipped into a pocket on the curtain or drape. Sometimes a ring attached to the curtain Some curtains have tabbed tops and some regular curtains are clipped onto clip rings that hang from the rod. Cable rods are a newer type. The ends that attach to your wall are visible all the time but the metal cable that attaches them and holds your curtains is pretty much invisible! This type has as many appropriate uses as any other type curtain rod - the possibilities are nearly endless.
One of the major decisions youll have to make when picking out your new curtain rods is deciding on visible or invisible ones. Now there is a large difference between then and invisible rods arent totally invisible they are just completed covered when your curtains are closed when they are open however you will still be able to see it They arent magic after all. This means youll still need to think about your rooms design even if choosing invisible rods. Visible rods on the other hand are able to be seen even when your curtains are closed. When they are open you get to see an even larger section of the support so which one is right for you? There are different types of curtain which are made to be used on invisible rods but not all of them so the best choice is to make sure you find a curtain rod that you enjoy looking at and matches your décor because the chances are someone is going to see it.
To hang most curtain rods you will need a pencil measuring tape hammer drill screwdriver and a level. Having an extra pair of hands is really helpful too. You can follow the instructions the come with your curtain rod or just follow these general guidelines. Remember how you measured to buy the rods? You decided how far out from each side of the window you want your curtains to hang. For most windows youll want the curtain to start about 1½ inches above the window trim. Now look at your curtain rod. For standard hidden rods measure out from the window 3-5" (whatever you decided on) and up from the top 1½".
