Rod pocket drapes at Toronto Window Treatments

Just as the name implies, Pocket Rod Curtains are so named because they have a curtain rod that is fed through pocket, or channel, making them ideal for any room. This creates a completely uniform look with a decorative fringe above the covered rod as well as decorative ends to the exposed rod on either side of your curtain. It also blocks more light from entering the room. Pocket rod curtains can be made of virtually any fabric, from sheer to blackout thermal to noise-cancelling fabrics to name just some of the variations available. 

Available in manual or motorized operation. They are beautiful when installed alone and look great with various styles of shades and blinds. 

Rod pocket drapes are great for any space!

Rod Pocket Drapes are one of the most common and classic in hanging curtains. Drapes in the rod pocket style can be hung and updated easily. They have a clean and simple look that makes any space feel cozy. 

Rod pocket drapes work great when layering window coverings, and the rod can be stylishly hidden even when the curtain is open. Toronto Window Treatments can also install sheers within the main panel to give 2 options for light blockage. Sheers protect your privacy while also letting some light into your home.

Some things to consider about rod pocket curtains

You may want to ask yourself and your family how often they would like to keep the drapes open and closed. Rod pocket curtains are an ideal choice for setting and forgetting, but a bit cumbersome if you are adjusting them multiple times a day. If your window is really tall, it may be hard to reach the edge of the curtain to open and close your drapes.

A valance is a cover that will hide your curtain rod even when the curtains are shut. With the rise of custom window treatments have made rod pocket valances less common but still something available at Toronto Window Treatments.

How Toronto Window Treatments install rod pocket drapes

  • Rod pocket drapes have a rod that goes through a channel or pocket on the backside of your curtains. 
  • We install a backing on the back tab that is super subtle and sleek. If you wish to change the orientation of the curtain, there are also tabs on the back. The pocket can be found at the top of your curtain rod all the way through.

How do I decide if I should choose rod pocket drapes?

There are many curtain styles available with rod pocket drapes being one of the most popular. Rod pocket curtains are also known as pole top curtains or, less commonly, casement curtains. This is a classy, timeless way to hang your drapes.  Like pinch pleat drapes, rod pocket drapes bunch together when you slide them and can be tied off when open to provide an elegant look. Without a valence, rod pocket drapes may have an exposed bar.

Because of this, rod pocket drapes look even better with layered curtains or a valance. Sheers can be added in front of the rod pocket drapes to let some sunlight into a room while protecting privacy.
