black white and purple curtains – When it comes to home decorating, curtain rods are just as significant of a factor as the curtain fabric. Curtain rods are available in many contemporary, elegant and sleek designs and colours with decorative styles and knobs which could be matched to match any type of decor and furniture.
The very first thing to do, and the most crucial, in regards to hanging drapes or making rods, is to ensure you make accurate measurements. You should measure the diameter of the windows, allowing for a couple of extra inches on both sides. You can buy various ornaments and decorative knobs to place at the ends of the pole. You can find these at local hardware stores, or even the large box stores such as Home Depot and Lowes. Another creative and crafty idea is to utilize kitchen hooks as curtain pole holders.
Kinds of curtain rods
Whether you are deciding to make your new curtain rods as a do-it-yourself project, or select from the various styles available on the market, it’s crucial to know which kind of curtain rod you will need to fit your decor.
- One kind, called cafe rods, can be employed with or without bands. These are generally used for hand-drawn drapes or tie-tab drapes, and are available in several different finishes.
- Wide curtain rods are primarily employed for corner and bay windows because the corner connectors make these suitable for this kind of window. They attach at the top and bottom.
- Narrow curtain rods are often used where the drape fabric is quite sheer. Picking a pole which is clear or translucent is a fantastic idea for them.
Installation curtain rods
First and foremost, decide whether you would like to mount the curtain pole on the window frame or the wall socket. On consideration this is that often frames are made from oak or alternative high quality forests, and you may not wish to drill into them. Plaster or sheetrock walls are extremely simple to patch should you change decor later. To ascertain the appropriate positioning maintain the pole to the wall using a long carpenters level over the pole to make certain you’ve got the pole level. Also mark the positioning of the mounts on the wall or frame with a pencil. When doing so, you may wish the drapes mounted on the pole, if there’s any question regarding how they will appear, or their dangling span. Normally the mounts are put three to six inches beyond the border of the window. Then drill holes across the pencil marks to affix the anchors throughout the bracket, making quite certain you are utilizing the appropriate bit size. Finally, position the curtain rods into the mounts. If the pole is a bit longer, you may need to put in a center bracket to support the pole and the drapes, to prevent sagging. You need to make sure that you utilize wall attachments which will correctly support the weight of all the rods and drapes. Most fasteners will define the weight that they can safely support. The final step in installing curtain rods is to repair the rods and brackets before dressing the windows with drapes, draperies or valances.
