Country style curtains are perfect for certain types of wood rods.
Country style curtains are reminiscent of olden days of the country when people lived on a farm or had servants but still had an ‘air of country’ about them.
Country style curtains come in checkerboard, solid colors; although somewhat muted from today’s bright colors, like mustard yellow.
Patterns, besides the very popular floral patterns, roses and lilies; include the ever popular checkerboard.
These come in all colors including red, white and blue, but a much toned down color, nothing back then was bright.
They did not have the technology to produce the dyes for fabrics of bright colors.
Bay window curtains need special wood curtain rods for the bay window opening. A bay window is one that juts out from the wall.
It’s not flat against the wall like the rest of the window and sometimes has a seat in it.
The bay window makes a nice little alcove in any room and the bay window curtains should be simple or elegant and not overwhelming to the space.
You don’t want to fill up the small space with large, bulky curtains, therefore, choose sheers, or thinner curtains with texture and style to give a small area some depth.
You may need different lengths depending on if there is a bench or not.
Swing arm curtain rods do just what they say they do; they swing out of the way when you don’t need to use traditional curtain rods.
