Stunning NZ curtain rods can add so much to any space. Not only are they a practical way to hang up your lovely curtains, but they can also add a touch of elegance, class and personality simply by being installed.
When choosing a curtain rod, there are a few factors you’ll need to consider before you make your final decision. We recommend thinking about each of the factors listed in this article before you purchase your curtain rods. This will help you make the best choice for each one of your rooms.
So, what should you think about when you shop for beautiful new curtain rods?
What You Should Consider When Shopping For A Quality New Curtain Rod
Curtain rods come in many different colours and styles, so you’ll want to think about these important factors when browsing through curtain rods in NZ:
Style. The style of your curtain rod, as well as your curtains, should complement the style of your home. For example, if you have a modern home with contemporary decor and furnishings, then you might want to consider an elegant rod with a sleek design and an attractive metallic finish. Look at the room you’re purchasing a new curtain rod for and ask yourself, ‘What kind of curtain rod would go well with everything here?’
Although your curtain rod is only one part of your room, it can still do a lot for your interior design as a whole. Its colour and style can make your space feel more cohesive and beautiful.
Size. Of course, you need a curtain rod that’s large enough for your windows. Make sure you know the width of your windows so you know what size NZ curtain rods you should look for. A curtain rod that’s too long would seem very awkward, but a curtain rod that’s too short will not be long enough to cover the entire length of your windows.
A fantastic choice is to select an extendable curtain rod that can be adjusted to match your windows perfectly. For example, look at the beautiful extendable curtain rod we offer here at Welltex. This beautiful curtain rod is adjustable, so it can cover windows with widths of 160 cm to 300 cm.
Curtain Brackets. Make sure you have suitable curtain brackets that can fit your new curtain rod. You can choose single or double brackets, depending on what you prefer for your room.
Along with choosing the right NZ curtain rods, you’ll also need to ensure that your curtain brackets are installed in a good spot for both your curtain rod and your curtains themselves. Consider the length of your curtains when you choose where to install your brackets so that when you hang them, your curtains aren’t too far from your floor.
Finials. Finials are the end pieces on curtain rods that keep the curtains from sliding off. But they’re not just there for practical purposes; they can also make your curtain rods more beautiful and stylised. These end pieces come in many shapes, so you can look through them and choose the kinds that you like the most.
For instance, take a look at our extendable curtain rod at Welltex again. This lovely rod comes with four different finial options:
- Round Finial. These finials are spheres, and they have a minimalistic charm to them. This elegance lets the beauty of the curtain rod, and the curtains, speak for itself.
- Hook Finial. The delightful curved design of these hook finials is very charming. The thin spiralling hook ends in a petite leaf to give this finial that extra special something.
- Sphere Finial. These finials are perfect for you if you’re searching for NZ curtain rods with an undeniable air of luxury. The twisted cage design of these finials is intricate and very interesting.
- Spiral Finials. These finials have a twisted cage design, similar to the sphere finials, but these are a bit more elongated.
Colour. One of the most notable details of any curtain rod is its colour. Similar to selecting the right style, you should look at the rest of your room before you settle on what colour you’d like.
Black, silver and gunmetal curtain rods go best in rooms with neutral colour palettes. On the other hand, a brilliant gold colour rod would look lovely in a room with brighter colours.
