This is a nice upgrade from the traditional white traverse rods. Looks modern. I have low ceilings and didn't want the extra space that the rods with rings used up. I also was tired of the telescoping rods because of the look of the differing diameters of the rods and the problem of moving the curtains over the ridge where they overlapped. The length of the rods can be adjusted by cutting off any excess. I shortened one by a few inches. As long as you have a saw that can cut metal, it's easy to do.My only problem is that on the 132" rod I have two curtains consisting of three panels of heavy lined linen. They do not slide easy. I am going to try the ball bearing hangers and see if that helps.
Art Decor has the BEST customer service. They are responsive and friendly. Moreover, they customized the length of the rod for me. This is the 2nd rod I bought from them. Exceptional service and product.

Very sleek design. It wanted a different style rod for my grommet drapery panels. I did not use the hooks for use with a pinch pleat drape and just slide the panels on the rod and it worked. By attaching it just next to the edge of the wood trim around the window and over the trim it virtually disappears. The panels almost look like they are floating.
This traverse rod is the only one I liked and could afford. All the others were either ugly ones meant to be hidden by a cornice, old fashioned and ornate, or modern but very expensive. This one has a clean, modern look, was easy to install, and best of all, within my budget.

Purchased the 84" rod for a pleated curtain to cover my patio slide door. Relatively easy to install. Instruction could be better on installing the wall brackets but was able to figure it out. Definitely like the appearance and components over prior ones I installed.
