I need drapery help!
I don't have much experience with drapes. The first sets I ever bought (Still have and use) are lined, cotton 63" so I have been able to get away with using clips on rings that I slide over standard curtain rods. I have just purchased (second hand) 4 panels of high end, designer fabric drapes, 72" long, also lined but HEAVY! No way can I stick with my make do curtain rod and rings. So-what exactly do I need to purchase?The drapes in question are considered an investment: taupe/grey/cream plaid that will go in any room: living room, bedroom etc down the road. For now, they will be covering the cold glass of the kitchen bow window that is located in the eating area of the kitchen. I've taken a glance at JCP, Home depot, Kohl's, Loews-but need some guidance. I like more plain or simple designs. Thinking black again for the hardware. This can be an expensive undertaking-so I want to do it right, buy quality, just not overspend. I envision a heavy duty pole of some sort that sits on 2 mounting backets with a third one in the middle of the window casing to support it. Any tips/suggestions are appreciated!
