Choosing Rods For Your Cafe Curtains: You probably feel that cafe curtains are a great item to sparkle up your windows and your rooms. They really are giving something special to the atmosphere, a certain vibe that is refreshing and different from others.
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.
Proportion and Balance - Take into account issues such as size, shape and visual weight. A lightweight set of curtains in a dark color, for example, can appear to be very heavy. And beautifully pleated drapes can come off as “just not enough” if they fit too tightly to the windows. Seeing your room as blocks of color will help to provide balance and proportion.
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!
Holdbacks and tiebacks serve the same purpose: to gently scoop up your curtains and hold them at the side of the window. Holdbacks are attached directly to the wall. Tiebacks are often lengths of cording, some with tassel ends that tie around the \"belly\" of your open curtains to hold them back. So here you are then, ready to make that plan, Stan, for creating a room you'll love - all by beginning with the perfect curtain rods!... Who'd a though?
