Types of Curtain Rods

Curtain rods come in a wide variety of styles, many of which are specifically designed for the types of curtains they are meant to display. We’ve listed a few of the more common types below:

Decorative Curtain Rods

Because they are intended to be highly visible, decorative rods are made from a wide variety of materials and they are available in many diameters. They may be a fixed length or adjustable, and they are commonly made from wood, wrought iron, brass, and other decorative materials.

Concealed Curtain Rods

This type of rod is unique in that is it designed to be hidden by draperies. Because it offers more function than form, it is often white in colour with very little, if any, decorative embellishments. Concealed rods are typically adjustable in length, making them very versatile.

Traverse Curtain Rods

If your chosen set of curtains use a wand or cord to open and close, it is likely they are designed to be installed on a traverse rod. This type of rod features a sliding track into which hooks are inserted, allowing your curtains to move with ease as you adjust them.

Café-Style Curtain Rods

Commonly installed in kitchens and dining areas that utilise cafe-style curtains, this particular kind of curtain rod is usually round and narrow in diameter. They are designed to hold lightweight curtains and are available in a wide array of colours and finishes.
