Wrought iron curtain rods are easy to install and last a long time since they are made of iron. However you need to keep in mind that the thicker the rod the heavier it will be so make sure that the support brackets together with the attachments are strong enough to hold them up (with the weight of the curtain as well) and that the mounting surface is also solid enough to take on the weight. Even so they are a much better choice than wooden rods which are subjected to terrible wear and tear every time the curtains are drawn or when the curtain rings glide up and down. Since there are many designs but not many colors to choose from make sure that you make the right choice as the choice you make will be literally hanging around your home for a long time.
There is more to curtain rods than just holding up your curtains. They have become decorative pieces of window treatments as much as the drapes themselves. You can still find the simple adjustable rods that have the basic functionality of supporting curtains but if you are interested in elaborate window dressings that enhance your drapery then there are plenty of decorative curtain rods to get the job done. If you are planning on making your curtain rod part of your decor then you need to plan on having curtains that can remain open so that the rod can be displayed. Or another alternative is to incorporate decorative curtain rod finials.
This branch should be a sturdy one and fit for small curtain hangers to fit in. If the rod is for the bathroom curtain then a light branch would also do because bathroom curtains are light weight. On the other hand if the rod is for most other rooms in the house then it should be a durable one because here the curtains tend to be heavier. A length of bamboo can also make a good and strong rod. Curtain rings or clips work well with bamboo and help keep the curtain in its place. Look around for inspiration in nature. 2. Using Sporting Equipment Sporting equipment such as hockey sticks and golf clubs can work well as the rod.
See if there is some used items in the house or garage which you can use for decorating the rod or perhaps a thrift shop or dollar store. An old set of glass door knobs can do the job. Any small object that goes with the theme of the room can act as a finial. The above ways of making rods is simple and inexpensive. Instead of spending money on buying new rods you can choose to make one of your own at home. Also the materials used in making the rods at home are available at home and you need not buy any. Creative and innovative rods make the room look new and fresh. The atmosphere it creates is amazing and most importantly money is saved in buying new rods. They do not sacrifice in style and visual appearance of the room.
