Curtain Rods and Curtain Accessories

If you’re redecorating with ready-made curtains from Amart, you’ll need curtain rods and curtain accessories to finish the job. Browse our range of curtains and blinds to find adjustable curtain rods, curtain rod ends and curtain brackets to put the finishing touches on your home improvement project.

What are curtain accessories?

The curtain accessories in our home decor range contain all the parts required to hang the beautiful ready-made curtains you’ve purchased online or at your local Amart store on the wall or window frame.

You’ll find decorative curtain rod ends, brackets for fixing curtain rods to the timber window frames or the wall, and extendable curtain rods in the range of curtain accessories at Amart.

Our cast iron 28mm curtain rods are available in white, silver and matte black curtain rods in two extendable lengths: 140cm to 250cm and 230cm to 400cm. They are suitable for hanging both sheer and room darkening or blockout curtains, with double curtain rod brackets available for hanging both types of curtain on one window.

What is a curtain rod?

Curtain rods are the horizontal rods that your curtains hang from by tabs, eyelets or pockets. Our range includes sleek, modern curtain rods in white, silver or matte black to create a stunning aesthetic in your living room, dining room and bedrooms, complementing your curtains, windows and walls.

Curtain rods sit on brackets which are fixed to the wall or timber window frame by screws. Also referred to as finials, curtain rod ends finish the look with a certain style. Our range of curtain rod ends have colours to match the curtain rods which include ball finials, pyramid finials and flame finials.

How do I install a curtain rod at home?

Hanging curtains can be done as a DIY home project in just a few easy steps:

  1. Measure the drop from the point at which the curtains will hang to the floor.
  2. Measuring from the floor up, use a pencil to mark the wall in two places. Use a spirit level to ensure the two marks are level.
  3. If you’re not fixing the curtain rod to a timber window frame, find a wall stud to drill in order to fix the rod brackets.
  4. Drill pilot holes for the screws before screwing the brackets into place.
  5. Attach the eyelet, tab or pocket curtains to the curtain rod and place it in the brackets.

You could mount your extendable curtain rods at a width that allows these types of curtains to cover the timber window frame when fully open, or past the window frame to allow the full amount of exposed light in through the window.

Types of curtains

While there are many types of curtains, some of the most popular styles include:

  • Tab curtains
  • Eyelet curtains
  • Rod pocket curtains
  • Pinch pleat or box pleat curtains

Curtains are made in a wide range of fabrics commonly categorised as:

  • Sheer
  • Light filtering
  • Room darkening
  • Blockout (or blackout)

Sheer and light filtering curtains provide daytime privacy and partial sunlight filtering, while fabric curtains with room darkening or blockout properties provide full light elimination and day/night privacy.

A modern alternative to curtains is roller blinds or venetian blinds. Roller blinds and venetian blinds provide a sleeker, less invasive finish than curtains, helping to create a greater sense of space in the room. Both types of blinds can be rolled right up to allow maximum light and visibility.
