These are really great rods because they are so versatile. They allow you to put the curtain as far away from the wall as you'd like. I needed this special kind of rod because we have a ledge that protrudes from the wall about 5 inches. These allowed our curtains to lay over the ledge without looking ridiculous. Very happy with this purchase.
This is the only place I could find a curtain rod long enough for my back door and I was a little worried about sagging with the weight of curtains, I have had no problems! Installation was pretty easy and the part that mounts to the wall is really good looking, it did require a center support. The rod is easily adjustable to whatever length you need and the ends can be changed, I found new ones that were glass and they just screw on.
This rod is great. Not a plastic-y feel to it at all like so many others I have used. This one is strong and sturdy, easily adjustable and looks high end. It ended up being less expensive than other ones I found locally that were junk. So happy with this rod. I would recommend to a friend and would buy again for myself.
