Decorative Curtain Rod Bracket Width

If your window has trim, you may want the brackets installed off the trim a few inches. And, if you have wall space, you may want to add a few more inches to allow your curtain fabric to stack off the window to provide a more open view.

There’s no set "rule" an extra four or five inches on either side typically works well. But, brackets for Heavy-Duty Curtain Rods and Decorative Traverse Rods can be placed at any point along the track.

Decorative Curtain Rod Dead End To Wall

Not a problem! Just use an end cap on the side that's up against the wall.

Or, if the collection you want has an Inside Mount Socket available in the color and fascia diameter that matches your Decorative Traverse Rod, you can "dead-end" your rod into an Inside Mount Socket for a clean look. Don’t forget to install an end bracket before the Inside Mount Socket.
