Step-by-step guide to curtain rods
Curtains have a huge impact in your home. Not only do they give you privacy, block the light, and control temperature, but they also help to define your style. That’s why it is crucial to select the right curtains for your space. However, there is one thing that is as important—if not more so—than the curtains themselves: The curtain rod. Deciding on a curtain rod ahead of time will dictate the length of your curtains. It will also define what type of light filtration options to invest in. Before you buy your window hardware, however, make sure you’re selecting the right size. Below, we’ll explain how to measure curtain rods and how to figure out which size to buy for your windows. Starting with the type of mount that you’ll be using (inside or outside), we’ll show you step-by-step instructions that will explain exactly what to measure to find the right curtain rods for your home. Ready? Let’s begin.
