6 Tips to Choose the Best Curtain Rods for Your Windows

Measure Your Windows

  • To select the right size of curtain rod, measure your windows accurately. Measuring windows is easy if you follow certain techniques. Use one-quarter-inch wide steel or metal tape to measure every window, even if all of them appear to be the same size. If you use finials, include an extra inch to your measurements.
  • Choose a curtain rod that extends approximately three to six inches beyond your window frame. The extended rods make your windows look bigger and fill your room with more light. The rod size you select depends on your window. It is advisable to get an adjustable rod to extend your curtains past the window frame, as widely as you want. Keep in mind the weight and material of curtains when choosing a rod. Thin rods are perfect for lightweight sheer curtains, while thick curtain rods (at least one inch thick) are ideal for heavy blackout curtains.

Pick the Curtain Rod Style

  • As curtain rods come in many styles, you need to choose the ones that go well with your home decoration or furniture. Standard rods are widely used by homeowners as they hold up almost every type of regular curtain. If you want to create a beautiful layered curtain effect, use double or combination rods to blend coverings.
  • Do you use blackout curtains? Then choose wraparound rods. They are U-shaped and fully wrap curtains around the contours and cover windows. If have light curtains, opt for wire or cable rods; as they are thin and flexible, you can curve the curtains easily. Tension rods are suitable for small windows or windows where regular brackets or rods do not fit properly. They are inexpensive and can be adjusted according to your requirements but cannot support heavy curtains. 

Select the Curtain Rod Material

  • A stylish curtain rod made of high-quality material with an excellent finish beautifies your room. If you want curtain rods that look good in every room, choose ones made of wood and metal. Always select the rod material suited to your room décor and curtain requirements. For instance, a wooden curtain rod is the best choice for a room with mostly wooden furniture. If your room has glass-heavy or modern furniture, sleek brass curtain rods will do wonders.
  • Wooden curtain rods are preferred by many homeowners because of their natural look and ability to last for years with minimal maintenance. Before picking your curtain rod’s colour, it is essential to decide on the finish. Besides wood, curtain rods come in bronze, nickel, steel and brass finishes.

Pick a Colour to Match the Curtains

  • Curtain rods come in standard colours such as black, white, gold, bronze and silver. Make sure the curtain rod colour you choose complements your curtains, furniture and other decorative elements. These include ceiling lights, chairs, dressers and headboards.
  • Is your room mostly white? A white curtain rod will blend with the interior nicely. If your room has dark wood furniture, go for curtain rods in darker shades. Besides making your room look good, dark draperies block light. The colour of brushed stainless rods complements metal light fixtures, while brass curtain rods add gold tones to your room. If your curtains are light grey or richly tinted, choose a silver metal rod.

Include Curtain Finials

  • Finials are knobs or endcaps that help hold curtain ends tightly so the curtain does not fall to the ground. They also complement curtain rods and your room’s interior. Finials are mainly decorative, however, go for ones that best suit your curtains, rods and room décor.
  • To add style and glamour, consider crystal and sculptured curtain finials. Wooden or geometric finials with a brass finish give curtain rods a mid-century modern look. For a more traditional touch, choose carved wooden finials. If you are still unsure, buy ball finials or classic cap ones that work with any room.

Think About Special Room Requirements

  • When it comes to choosing curtain rods for your living space, do not forget to consider the room’s purpose. Remember, not every curtain style looks good in every room. As kitchens and bathrooms usually have small windows, installing valances in those areas is smart. Use adjustable curtain rods made of plastic or stainless steel to enhance the interior and get rid of excess moisture.
  • To create a separation between two rooms, hang a pair of curtains on a swing arm rod. This is a great way to divide a big living room or detach your closet from the other areas of your living space. Both add curb appeal.

Choosing the right curtain rods provides firm support to your curtains and improves the overall appearance of your room. With the availability of curtain rods in a variety of colours, materials, and finishes, you will surely find the ones suited to your curtains and home décor.

A Detailed Guide to Cleaning and Maintaining Curtains

Curtains attract a lot of dust which makes them and the air, well, dusty. This makes it essential to clean curtains properly so they last for years. In this blog post, you will learn the most effective and easiest ways to clean and maintain your curtains. How to Clean and Maintain Your Curtains Before cleaning your curtains, check the label for the right washing method. For instance, washing by hand is the best way to clean velvet or silk curtains as it is not safe to put such thin materials into a washing machine. DIY cleaning is appropriate for curtains made with sturdy materials; dry cleaning works well for other curtain materials. Tips to Handwashing Your Curtains When it comes to washing all types of curtains, handwashing is the safest option. It takes quite an effort to fully clean your curtains. To make it easier, use a mild detergent soap or detergent formulated to wash delicate materials such as lace and silk. After picking a detergent, read the instructions, as concentrations differ. To wash curtains of any fabric, use only cold water. Never use brushes or any other cleaning tool as they could ruin the fabric.If your curtains are heavy, steam or dry clean them. As curtains absorb a good amount of detergent and water during the cleaning process, it takes a long time to dry completely. For better results, air dry immediately after cleaning. Tips to Dry Clean Your Curtains Dry cleaning works best with light and colourful curtains. Other washing methods may shrink or damage the curtains or drain their colours, so you need to be extra careful. Firstly, get the most appropriate ‘dry cleaning at home kit’ with proper instructions. To check if the fabric is colourfast, pour a small dose of detergent on an unnoticeable area. If the colour fades, look for other options. Always read the instructions carefully. As with washing by hand, do not use any rough brushes or tools when dry cleaning curtains. Clean each separately. Afterwards, hang them away from direct sunlight. Heat damages curtains so do not iron them directly. Instead, put a towel, t-shirt or blanket on top while ironing. Tips to Steam Clean Your Curtains Do you have a steam cleaner? This method is preferred for curtains suited to washing machines but too big to fit. Clean curtains gently to eliminate dust, dirt and cobwebs. Move the steamer slowly upwards, then downwards to cover them entirely. Pay attention to tough stains left behind after washing, and apply a good spot remover suited to the fabric. Tips to Machine Wash Your Curtains Washing machines make curtain cleaning simple, convenient and fast. Remember, most curtain materials cannot be washed with hot water as it leads to shrinkage. Consult the machine’s instructions to determine the perfect temperature to wash and dry them. Be sure to put your dryer on the delicate cycle for safety. A slow spin and cold water are ideal to wash high-quality curtains. Detergent formulated for your curtain material is …

Window Treatment Ideas to Maximize Space in Your Small Room

When it comes to choosing the right window coverings for your small room, there is a good range of options. The appropriate window treatment not only adds aesthetic appeal to small rooms but also makes them appear larger than they are. As windows occupy a significant space in a room, you should dress them cleverly. From traditional shutters to sheer curtains, you can cover your windows with a variety of options. This blog outlines the window treatment variations best suited to small rooms. 5 Window Treatment Options Suitable for Small Rooms Plantation Shutters Plantation shutters give small rooms a neat and clean look. When you fold them back, they let sunlight enter which automatically makes your small space look larger. Shutters provide great protection from the harmful effects of sunlight and heat insulation in winter. With plantation shutters, you get the level of privacy and security you want. They also ensure better control of air flow compared to room ventilation. Plantation shutters let you adjust the amount of light entering your room. They are simple to clean and maintain their original sheen for years. The clean lines of plantation shutters also give your room an elegant touch. If you are looking for a window treatment to add space and value to your small room, choose plantation shutters. Blinds Are you looking for a cost-effective window treatment for your small room? Go for mini blinds (usually made from aluminium). You can lift mini blinds according to room temperature, interior décor and desired privacy. If your windows have narrow frames and sills, install aluminium blinds. To make your room look big, add aluminium blinds to your window frame’s interior. Vertical blinds are perfect for small windows as you can customize them according to your precise requirements. They come with long vanes and PVC inclusions which block the entrance of sunlight and provide optimum privacy. As vertical blinds are easy to maintain, they can remain in good shape for years. To add a traditional touch to your room décor, install wood blinds. Or, if you want something cheaper and more durable, faux wood blinds are the right choice. Many people living in humid areas install faux window blinds to rid their homes of excess moisture. To let more sunlight into small rooms, pleated blinds are a good choice. As they are available in different designs and patterns, you can easily buy the one which revamps your interior and maximizes your small living space. Curtains Hanging a pair of full-length window curtains of a shade similar to your wall in a small room captures the attention of anyone entering and gives the impression of more space. Hanging them in a small kitchen adds storage by allowing you to store utensils in the vacant space above the window. To keep your glasses organized, create a shelf across your window. Doing so, however, will not block sunlight. Café curtains are minimalist window coverings that increase natural light in your limited space. They are ideal to let …
