  • Your curtains
    Before buying your curtain rod, make sure that it is the correct type to use with your curtain. For example, if you will be using the typical designs of curtains that flow straight down the wall, you will have to buy a chrome curtain rod, for heavier drapes, you need to buy stronger metals such as graphite with brass or solid brass.
  • Strength of the curtain rod
    Sagging curtains are not a sight to behold, so make sure that your curtain rod can support you curtain. Heavier curtains require strong and more solid curtain rods. Brackets and supporting devices should be used.
  • Your budget
    The more sophisticated the curtain rod design, the more expensive it will be, more so if they are made from high-quality materials. However, this does not necessarily mean that you will purge your bank account just to decorate your house. You can buy cheaper ones that look nice and good.

All in all, even if curtain rods are generally seen as something that holds up your curtains, they can also reflect the kind of personality that you have.
