First of all, decide what material you want for the curtain poles. Wood and metal and two obvious options. Wood poles give the room a rich and elegant look while the metal ones are not as generous but definitely look great in modern or industrial decors.

Curtain rods also need finials and this is where choosing a design can be difficult. There are many different shapes to choose from. Some even feature combinations of materials, glass and mirror components and a variety of ornaments.

You can also base your choice on the type of finish or color you prefer for the poles. For example, polished nickel or chrome rods can look really interesting but if you prefer something less striking try dark wood.
