Hi I’m Ann Myrick and today we’re going to talk about the right style of curtain rod really depends on the room the way you’re decorating your type of decorating style are you modern are you cottage or your country the type of curtain we have up a small stainless or brushed stainless curtain rod which I really like because stainless stays with you for a long time it’s classic brass I don’t like seeing a lot of brass because it’s dated but a black wrought iron curtain rod stainless chrome is good a dark wood is good you there’s thin this is a fairly thin one the diameter of the rod you can depending on the weight of the curtain the heavier the fabric the heavier the amount of the fabric on the rod the thicker the more substantial.
You need the rod to look with this one this is small and so you wouldn’t want to have a whole lot of heavy heavy fabric on a very thin rod so the size of the rod is going to be a major part of that another thing that you want to think about is how your curtain hooks onto the rod does it have loops on it does it have just a fabric pocket where you shoot the rod through how are you going to be able to open it if you just have a rod like this and you have to grab hold of the fabric the fabric sometimes will get soiled where you open it so you want to think about do you need a fabric and do you need a curtain that you can have a one where they pull or are they going to be on rings where you can slide them another thing to think about and these are just so great is these days you can really get just any type of panel and there are any hardware store will have these little hooks that you just clip on and you’re ready to go so you can even make a neat sheet cut towels on just a piece of fabric hemet put the clips on and have a great great curtain that way this is Ann Myrick and that is how to pick out a curtain rod for your room.
