A simple guide to curtain rods

Believe it or not, there's actually quite a bit of thought that goes into choosing a curtain rod. Ultimately, it comes down to the type of curtains and window treatments that you select for your home. Each kind of rod offers different levels of functionality that truly shape the overall aesthetic of your home decor. 

In today's article, we'll take a look at each one so you have the right information before you make a selection. Additionally, you can rely on the expertise of Metropolitan Window Fashions to help you reach a decision. 

The classic rod

A simple bar, the classic rod has little to no ornamentation on its length. However, homeowners may opt for a decorative cap at each end. Perfect for achieving a sleek, modern style, the classic rod offers good functionality and an easy approach to window decor.

The concealed rod

These U-shaped rods are attached directly to the wall, offering a greater degree of stability. However, you'll run into a slight inconvenience of time if you decide to replace them down the road. On the plus side, however, you'll benefit from having a fuller custom window furnishing that curves out and completely covers the window. Perfect for more showy curtains!

The track rod

This rod features drapery hooks inside a track, giving this selection its distinctive name. This choice is perfect if you want to open your window quickly. However, given the structure of the rod, you'll want to opt for lighter fabrics that don't put too much pressure on the hooks.

These are just a few of the rods that you can choose for your New York or New Jersey home. Reach out to our professional staff today to learn more about your options!
