Functionality: Both blinds and curtains have the same functionality behind them, which is light control and privacy. Curtains block are known to shut out light, as well as stop those walking by from peering through your home. Curtains add an extra dimension as they are decorative, which can allow you to shine a controlled amount of light and still block out the view from the outside. Whether you choose thick curtains, or lightweight, they can all be adjusted to your needs, but are no longer beneficial once they are wide open. Sheer curtains are normally combined in order to get the benefits once curtains are closed and open.
Curtain Rods Selecting The Right Type For Your Window, Visible, Invisible... How Do I Choose: So let's take a look at one of the first decisions you'll make when picking out a new curtain rod: visible or invisible rods. And that requires a clarification: the invisible rods really aren't totally invisible. The mostly invisible rods are completely covered - invisible - only when the drapes or curtains are closed. When your curtains are open part of the rod is visible. In other words your curtain rod still needs to complement your decor whether it's mostly visible or mostly invisible.
Rings and pinch clips are similar: they slide on the curtain rod and attach to the curtains. In other words the rod and rings or clips are visible, sort of like some shower curtains. Brackets are used to hold decorative rods on the wall. They come in every imaginable color, material, style... You won't have trouble finding a pair to fit your room.
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!
For all other drape and curtain styles we recommend a visible curtain rod just because it give you the advantage of emphasizing your style. That could mean choosing a natural wood that matches the carved wooden elephant coffee table (everyone has one, right?) or Hanging a gold -toned curtain rod to complement the warm tones in your room. What about using a colorful metal curtain rod to go with that casual, playful look in the sun room? You can see how a decorative, mostly visible curtain rod can be a great choice for your window, and even if your guests never had a clue your choice can show them what a great decorator you really are!
