A great idea for DIY bay window curtain rods is to make them with the help of dowels. To make these functional bay window curtain rods, you will need a long dowel, decorative drawer knobs, a hand-held drill, a handsaw, T nut bolts and spray paint. First measure the width of all the three window casements of the bay window. Now cut the dowel into three pieces, according to the dimension of the window. If your bay window is not the three window casement style, but consists of one wide window, then you need not cut the dowel at all. Drill holes at the ends of the dowel by attaching a drill bit to a hand-held drill. While drilling holes into the dowel, make sure that it is properly centered. Attach T nut bolts on each holes of the dowels and make sure it is flush with the dowel ends. Screw in the decorative drawer knobs on each end of the dowels. If you want to give the curtain rod a more finished look, then spray paint it with a matt or metallic textured paint. Install curtain rods on the brackets of the bay windows.
The last step is to put in the curtain clip rings into the curtain rods and place the rod into place.
Thermal Blinds: They give complete insulation from heat. They have the ability to obstruct noise to a certain extent too. This feature will help you, if you live in a location prone to continuous traffic, by keeping the noise from the traffic outside. They have a central foil which reflects the heat in summers and the cold winds in the winter. Thus, you can save some of the energy that you use for cooling in summers, and it will also help to the minimize the energy requirement for heating up your room in the winters.
Make sure the blinds are shut while you do the above. Clean thoroughly under the slats with the fingers. After this, clean the slats by opening and closing the blinds in the opposite direction.
