All about curtain pole

Everyone loves the scene of window or a door covered with a curtain, it has a beauty that no one can deny. Many artists have used this particular scene in many paintings, and they were huge success and fame. Curtain pole is usually put on a window to prevent light whenever it is not needed, sometimes they are put there to break down the wind if it is too strong to be handled. The main idea here is that the curtain must be flexible, and the only thing that makes this possible is its pole.

Before curtain pole was created, people used to nail down their curtains to the door or window frame. That would make the curtain semi-permanent, and it would not be easy to move it if needed. So it was the invention of the pole, where curtains can move freely to close or open the window or the door that it covers. This invention induced many other inventions like: rail, hooks and curtain rings. All of them are utilized for one purpose, to make the curtain move more freely.

There is no particular preferred material in manufacturing a curtain pole, each material has its own pros and cons against certain criteria. Materials vary from metal, stainless steel, plastic and wood. Each material suits a certain situation better than the other, like if you live in a humid place; it is not recommended to get a metal or a wood pole. So there can be no better material unless you ask a few questions, like where you live and what your decoration looks like.


The pole itself has no fancy design, the main decorative part is its two ends; where you can apply many pieces to add the decorative look you want. Any curtain pole can have these pieces added to it, and these end pieces come in many forms and materials. From wood to crystal balls and what is between them, there are countless designs to suit any household or décor. You can choose them yourself, or you can consult a professional to get the best work done.
