The wood rods are available as either smooth rods or as fluted rods. While the smooth rods are usually of 1-3/8" diameters the fluted rods are of 2" diameter. The rods in general are available in three different lengths of 4" 6" and 8". These are the curtain rods for normal sizes but if it is a non-standard window frame then you cut down the rods to specific sizes and then use them accordingly. However if you need longer than the normal length rods then use pole connector screws to get the necessary length. Different types of wood curtain rods The wood curtain rods are available in different finishes like historic white burnished gold natural white weathered white honey maple matte black gold warm oak gold leaf lacquered natural pewter cherry and piano white.
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.
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.
This normally means the inner layer is a soothing light color of thin fabric followed by the thick curtain fabric that normally matches the inner curtain. This not only gives a rich and elegant look but also allows the outer curtain to be pulled back leaving the thinner layer exposed for a completely different look and allowing the sun to filter through the room. Double curtain rods are available in two different sizes from small medium and large. They are very popular and easy to install as they normally come complete with the necessary hardware that gives you a variety of installation options to suit your taste. Since they are made of iron they are easy to handle and easily adjustable. The iron makes them strong enough to handle even heavy curtains. When installed on site you can adjust or even cut the rods to fit the length of your window.
