There is nothing prettier than a great relaxing sit by an open window, where gentle wind and sunlight are just making your day great. Many people would give anything in the world to relax in such a scene. Curtains are usually put on a window to prevent light whenever it is not needed, sometimes they are put there to break down the wind if it is too strong to be handled. The main idea here is that the curtain rods must be flexible, and the only thing that makes this possible is its rods.
Usage Of Rods
Before curtain rods were invented, people used nail to install curtains to the door or window frame. That would make the curtain almost non-removable, and it would not be easy to move it if you need to. So it was the invention of the rods, where curtains can be moved freely to close or open the window or the door that it covers. This invention induced many other accessories like: rail, hooks and curtain rings. All of them are used for one purpose, to make the curtain move freely.
There is no preferred material in making curtain rods, each material has its own special feature. Materials vary from metal, stainless steel, plastic and wood. Each material suits a certain scenario better than the other, like if you live in a humid place; it is not recommended to get a metal or a wood pole. So there can be no better material unless you ask a few questions, like where you live and what your decoration looks like.
The rod itself requires no special design, the main decorative part is its two ends; where you can have many pieces to add the decorative look you want. All curtain rods can have these pieces applied to it, and these end pieces come in many shapes. From wood to crystal balls and many others, there are countless designs to suit any taste and decoration. You can choose them yourself, or you can consult an interior designer to get you the best ones.
