The way you choose to hang your drapes or curtains is a very important yet, often unrecognised consideration.
We have a varied range of options - from plain to ornate. There are plain tracks, to rods with tracks or rings and a good choice of finial styles with many different material, colour and finish options. If you would like to hide the track and make the curtains the feature then a plain flat track the colour of your wall would be the ideal treatment. Those tracks that are completely hidden from view can be chosen based on function alone. However if you would like to make more of a feature of the rod then you can choose one where the drapes will hang underneath, leaving the rod exposed above the curtains when open or closed.
Decorative curtain rods should relate to the style of the room. You are even able to have the tracks or rods painted specifically to suit your home decor choice: your rod or track can blend in or stand out to make a statement.
With most tracks and rods there is the option to have them cord-drawn, this means your lovely drapes will not be handled morning and night and so are less likely to mark and more likely to last. If the type of rod or track you choose does not have a cord draw feature, you can purchase curtain wands which clip onto the glides on the leading edge of the drapes. This enables you to draw your drapes with the wands, not with your hands, helping reduce wear and tear. To help you choose, we've put together a list of some ideas to help you make the best decision for your home, however if you'd like further advice please call 09 425 0037 or email us about curtain rods.
A classical rod is a timber or metal pole with end caps. These end caps, or finials, can range from plain to ornamental. The rod attaches to the wall with brackets. You can choose the rod finish to coordinate with other finishes in the room. You can also have two rods on the same set of brackets enabling you to have a lovely patterned sheer on the front rod and a solid curtain on the back to be pulled at night. You can also have returns made as an extension of the front curtain which go around the end of the track on each side & hook into the wall, giving you no gaps, therefore complete privacy.
This type of rod is where hooks attach to glides inside the rear of the track. These rods are either installed from the ceiling or on the wall. Some track rods are made to look like a rod with finials, thereby concealing all the moving parts inside the pole. Curtains glide effortlessly on these systems.
