Before deciding what size Custom Curtain rod you need, let’s quickly review a few simple guidelines on how to measure for curtain rods based on the type(s) of window treatments that you will be using, such as sheer curtains, heavier fabric drapes, or a stand-alone valance.
It may seem difficult to determine what size curtain rod you need for a particular project, but it’s actually quite simple! Let’s start by selecting your desired style (wood, metal, or wrought iron) and then choosing what size curtain rod diameter is needed. All curtain rods are measured by their diameter, meaning the width of the pole’s cross section. Common curtain rod diameters are typically between 1-3 inches, depending on the weight of your curtains.
Next, how long does your curtain rod need to be? Drapery Rods Direct offers both telescopic and fixed-width rods enabling you to choose whether your projects require an expandable pole (covering any width within the specified range) or a fixed-width curtain rod (covering areas the exact same size that you need or longer). Do you have a larger window that is longer than the standard 2-8 feet? Our experienced drapery rod staff can splice (or connect) two or more curtain rods to create a custom length perfect for your special space.
Don’t forget to stay on-trend by selecting a curtain rod or rail that’s length is (or can be extended to) several inches beyond the exact measurement of your window on each side. Choosing a bit longer curtain rod will give the appearance of a grander window and treatment, while also allowing your window’s full amount of natural light inside when the curtains are open.
