Curtain Tracks Or Curtain Rods?

Posted in: General

WHICH ONE?

We are often asked why someone should choose curtain tracks over curtain rods. It's a fair question and the options can be overwhelming. Never fear! We are here to help!

KEEP THE LIGHT OUT

If you are looking to add room darkening, sound absorbing and energy conserving eclipse light blocking curtains to a window, curtain tracks would be your best bet. Curtain tracks can be mounted on the ceiling ensuring the entire window is covered, similar to what you see in nearly every hotel room. When the entire window is covered and your curtains block the light, you are more likely to get a solid night's sleep.


TALL WINDOWS

If you have tall windows in your home, a curtain track system is going to be most effective. Tall windows call for curtains with lots of fabric which means added weight. With curtain rods, heavy curtains can drag the rod down (or pull it off the wall completely). Several curtain tracks work well with rolling ball carriers allowing for smooth opening and closing of the curtains. Add a wand to the curtain panels (the 60 inch wand length is great for tall curtains and high ceilings), and opening and closing just became easier and eliminates hand prints on fabric.


FANCY

If you are looking to attract attention to your window, besides just the curtains, you may want to consider curtain rods. Curtain rods are available in many styles and sizes and can have decorative corbels adding a different design element to your room.
