Curtain rods are such an important element in your room's overall design.  I love a good thick curtain rod, it can take less expensive drapery and make it look more elegant and classy.  These types of rods would be perfect to use when hanging - for example, the very affordable Ikea panels.  While some versions of Ikea's panels are 100% linen, using a thick lucite, brass or chrome rod will really elevate your window treatments.  Here are some inspiration photos that I love.

When shopping for a thicker curtain rod, I would recommend going with one that larger than 1" in diameter.  Here are a few options to get the look.

I just ordered these in the gold for our bedroom project (from West Elm).  At 1.3" they are a little shy of 1.5" - I'll keep you all posted when I receive and see them in person.  

Here is an AMAZING diy tutorial from the uber talented Grace, at A Storied Style.  I am tempted to return my West Elm gold rods, and get to working on some diy lucite ones!  Love these ones that Grace made.  

These rods are from ATGStores (which is a Lowe's Company).  

TGIF!  Hope you all have a great weekend!
