How to Choose the Right Style Curtain Rod

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.
