Here are some guiding design principles that can assist you in selecting the right drapes for your beautiful home: Harmony and Unity - In general, you can achieve a better result if you choose curtains that can bring a sense of unity and harmony to the room in question. This is often a function of taking the time to recognize the architectural style with which you are working and then trying to make the most of it – as opposed to covering it over or just pretending it isn’t there. You can also harmonize your surroundings by choosing colors that are already a part of the room’s decor, especially those used in accent pillows. Also, crisp folds tend to be more pleasing to the eye than excessive draping.
Mostly visible rods are at least partially visible even when your window coverings are closed. When your drapes or curtains are open they're totally visible, and play a big part in your decorating statement. How do you know which to pick?
If you are dead against drilling your wall, go for a magnetic curtain rod which can be used in a metal window casing. The magnets will do the job for you. If your choice is lace or sheer panels then think about single curtain rods. It provides a layered look to your window treatment.
How will your rods be hung - inside or outside the window frame? For outside the frame - on the wall: the idea here is usually to cover the window completely. Measure 2-5\" out from each side of the window trim. The total curtain rod length should be about 12\" longer than your window width. And don't be fooled: measure each window in the room - they may look the same size, but they may not be!
Back to that question: how do you know whether to pick visible or invisible? Let's ask another question first: what kind of window coverings are you using? Like we said, some curtains require the invisible rod called a traverse rod. Pleated drapes are made to attach to hooks that hang from this curtain rod and open-and-close by pulling the cord hanging down one side. So if you've got pleated draperies you've already got your answer: use the traverse curtain rod.
