Traverse rods have clips or eyes that move along a track embedded in a slot in the rod. The eyes have a small opening for the curtain pins and they’ll run evenly across the rod, with the number of eyes dependent on how long the rod is. A cord runs through the rod, too, and is attached to a master slide or pulley. The cord extends beyond the rod so that you can use it to open and close the curtains.
Custom drapery that’s made for traverse rods sometimes comes with the pins or hooks sewn into the fabric. Most times, however, you’ll need to buy drapery pins along with the traverse rodding.
When should I use traverse rods?
Are the curtains meant to be functional? If you want drapery that opens and closes, traverse rods are a good choice. With regular rods and rings you’ll find yourself using your hands to open and close the curtains; it’s awkward and causes more wear and tear on the fabric. Traverse curtain rods with a cord allow you to open and close curtains to your heart’s content.
Is your window wider than thirty-six inches? Rods that long need a center support bracket, which prevents the curtains from closing completely. For larger windows, French doors, patio sliders and any other large opening, traverse curtain rods with a pull cord will allow you to open and close the curtains smoothly.
Are you layering window treatments? If you’re layering sheers and another fabric or adding a valance, you’ll need double curtains rods. Rather than stacking two separate rods, which uses up a lot of depth, makes installation tricky, and can look cluttered, a double traverse curtain rod hides all of the working parts and still gives you the layered look.
Quick guide to choosing the right traverse curtain rods
Decide what kind of curtains you want.
Take into account the width of the window, whether curtains must open and close and the curtain hardware style that best complements your décor.
Choose the traverse curtain rods that will get the job done:
Standard traverse rods if you want to keep the hardware hidden and show off the detailing of the curtain header.
Decorative traverse rods of you love the look of rods and rings or if the curtains you’ve chosen must be hung from rings.
Double traverse rods if you want to hand two layers of drapery or if you plan to use a valance.
It’s easier than you think to select the traverse curtain rods that will make your window treatments hang perfectly and look just right.
