1. One type called cafe rods can be used with or without rings. These are generally used for hand-drawn curtains or tie-tab curtains and are available in several different finishes. 2. Wide curtain rods are mainly used for corner and bay windows since the corner connectors make these suitable for this type of window. 3. Sash rods are often used for stretched curtains on doors and to allow the curtains to hang closer to the glass surface. They attach at both top and bottom. 4. Narrow curtain rods are often used where the curtain fabric is very sheer. Choosing a rod which is clear or translucent is a good idea for these.
However you have to make sure the color and design you are choosing for your shower curtain rods match your bathroom walls and tiles used in bathroom floor. The selection of rod will also depend on the type of curtain you want to hang. If you are planning to hang dark colored curtains then go for metallic shower curtain rods with curved knobs. If you are planning to cover your shower area from four sides use rectangular shower curtain rods. Use curved shower curtain rods that will fit built-in tub units and various other shower units. You can also use crescent shower curtain rods that will fit your tub opening.
The supports by way of brackets are put in next one at each end and one in the center for added support. The latter keeps the curtain from sagging and ensures a longer life. The strength of the rod should be considered. Your choice would depend on the weight of your curtains. Theres no rule against fixing the rod on the window casing but the better option is to go for brackets. Theyre provided so why not use them! It is important to remember that the rod should be 2" to 5" longer than the window so that the entire window is covered. If the curtain has a valance a valance rod is also required. Curtain rods come with brackets fasteners and toggle bolts. Selecting curtain rods depends on the familys needs. You can choose from wood or metal have simple ones or go in for the more ornate kind. However these fixtures should fit in with the rest of the décor and not stand out incongruously. Like everything else in your home they too let on to the world a little of who you are.
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.
