In our life big things do have an impact, but it’s the small elements that touches our heart. Like a forest full of trees and a small dew drop on a leaf, leaves us amazed. The moments like sleeping on the couch and waking up on the bed, getting something you have been looking at in the mall and feasting on your favourite food packed by your husband, leave us paralyzed with emotions. But that’s not all. You can see the reflection of the same around you everywhere, be it a small hummingbird in the vastness of nature or a lotus in a pond. It’s these kind of observations that help me renovate houses and beautify the ambience for my friends and relatives. Small enhancements like the design of a curtain rod, colour of the carpet rug or addition of a quirky cushion can transform the look of your house like none other. We can all agree that curtains are an essential part of a fully furnished home. My mom would say, if you want a peeping Tom lurking around in your garden then you can take the door & window curtains down. Initially it was just a way of maintaining privacy. But today it’s an essential piece of decoration too. And if you are someone who is quite fond of curtains like me, then you can go as creative as you can putting them on.




Every small thing can add value to your house. So why pick simple or plain curtain accessories like curtain rods, brackets or even poles when you can use them to enhance the effect of the curtains. It’s important to know that choosing the texture, print and colour of drapes are not enough. The curtain rods holding it also contributes to the overall aesthetics of the space. But sadly, not many people know about the varieties available to start with. So I am going to tell you about the designs in this article.
