The brackets are made from varying materials. Curtain rod brackets are usually sold in 5/8” and 1” in width.  The most common are brass, wood, stainless steel, aluminum, and wrought iron.

Double brackets are used to hold two curtains. It adds style to the room.

Centre Support Bracket

Centre support brackets are used to support long curtain rods that exceed 60 inches in length so that we can cover big and long windows

If you want temporary curtain brackets then you can go for no-drill brackets. It does not create marks of holes in the wall or ceiling, is easy and fast installation is available in many hues and finishes and is also able to support heavy curtains.


Finials are attached at the extreme ends of the curtain rod. These are decorative and stylish knob-like structures. We can see these finials at a fence posts, monuments, and buildings.

Finials are also used for interior design purposes. We use finials with curtain rods. It prevents the curtain to slide away.

Finials also come in various styles, shades, and sizes. From wooden, metal, and plastic to glass finials every type of finials are available to suit your budget.


Hooks are used to attaching curtains to the curtain rods. These hooks basically come in either plastic or metal. Metal hooks are better than plastic as it is durable and sturdy. Plastic hooks are brittle in nature and are not suited to carry heavy curtains. Other hooks by material include glass curtain hooks and clear crystal glass hooks.

There are different types of hooks to choose from and they are

Pin-on hooks

S hooks

Pleater hooks

Pin-on hooks

Pin-on hooks are also called drapery pins. These are sharp pins that can be used with pleated curtains having heading tapes. It can also be used with pole rings.


S-shaped hooks are used to hang shower curtains. It can also be used to hang tie-top curtains from café rods.

Pleater hooks

Pleater hooks have prongs that give curtains a pleated appearance. These hooks have one to four prongs, so they are sometimes called prong hooks.



Just like hooks, rings also help to hold curtains. Rings should be half-inch greater than the curtain rod in diameter otherwise it will be difficult to move the curtain. These rings are usually made of wood, metal, or raisin. There are two kinds of rings; rings with eyelets and rings with clips.


Pull-backs help gather the curtains together when you want an open window. It adds an aesthetic element to the window décor.

There are two types of pull-backs:




Tie-backs are used to hold curtains when you keep your window open. It is attached to the wall with a hook. But it is soft and flexible because it is usually made from fabric, rope, or cord. You can enjoy the outside environment and also it permits the sun rays inside the room. One more advantage of using tie-back is, it prevents wear and tear of the curtain rod as there is some type of curtain style that blocks the curtain from easy to and fro motion.

Tie-backs are of different styles and each type complements some kind of curtain. Like if you wish for retro style then you can go for an anthropologic hemisphere tieback, for a subtle look, we can go for a steel bud-tipped tieback, for the chic style you can choose something in metallic shape.

We also have necklaces, chains, and beads embedded in fabric-type tie-backs, leather tie-backs, magnetic tie-backs, and tie-backs made with flowers. You can also use natural geodes as a tie-back.


Holdbacks are rigid usually made from steady substances like metal, iron, and wood used to hold curtains. You can position holdbacks in whichever way you like, be it straight or angled. Hold-backs are typically u-shaped that is attached directly to the wall.

Bonus tip- It is recommended not to use eyelet curtains and eyelet curtain poles.
