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.
Arched windows add a unique dimension to a room. But many find the task of covering these sophisticated windows a tough one. Well, let me tell you that, adding blinds to the arch, which is the primary part of the entire window, is quite easy. There are blinds available in the market which can cover the window and open up as required. You can pick the manual ones or go in for the motorized blinds as well. These nicely cover the arch shape, and help the area blend well with the rest of the window. So, you can either opt for pre-made blinds or order and get a custom-made one. Make sure that the type of blinds used for the arched area and lower rectangular or square part is the same, or perfectly complement each other.
Now consider what kind of curtain or drape you'll be hanging. Will it be light and billowy, heavy and insulating or something in between? You guessed it: the weight of the coverings will be instrumental in choosing your rod. Maybe you want a layered look, so you'll be considering double or triple rods.
