Curtain rods usually are not the focal point when you’re hanging curtains. However, they can provide a nice accent, allowing you to show off a bit of your style. As you’re searching for curtain rods, think about the types of curtains or drapes you’ll be hanging. If they consist of a heavy fabric, you will want a heavy-duty rod. It will hold the fabric without bowing or breaking. A tension rod uses a spring to hold the rod tight to the edges of the window. But it won’t hold as much weight as a curtain rod that rests on brackets you’ll screw into the wall. Most curtain rods give you an adjustable length. This means you can adjust the rod within a range of several inches to fit different window sizes. Most of the style options regarding curtain rods relate to the visible ends of the rods. The ends may have decorative shapes and interesting colors.
